Susan Fireside, Design Director

I am a multi-disciplinary design director with a focus on creating modern and engaging work. I’m a big picture thinker who looks at the intricate details. I work in multiple mediums that include print, interactive, environmental, packaging and surface design. As a creative, some of my influences are rich and beautiful textiles, architecture, nature and interior environments. I am passionate about learning the cultural anthropology around us and find inspiration comes from anywhere, anyone and anything. I enjoy collaborating with other creatives to solve design challenges outside traditional thinking. My motto is “always keep your eyes and ears open and keep a curious mind”.

I synthesize methods and technologies. I am able to lead through collaboration and consolidate essential research, strategy and tactics. Design thinking is at the core of who I am and how I approach the creative process. These qualities flourish when working with organizations doing work that matters.
