IMG_3861Hi. I’m Liz, owner of the Elizabeth Winders Studio of Design. Remember when Instagram was for photos? Yeah, I barely do… This photo is one of my favorites, me and my dog, Sallie. She’s a great foot warmer and buddy. She gets up in the middle of the night with me when an idea is born in my sleep.

I am so proud to say I am a born and raised Iowan. I grew up in Clive, a western suburb of Des Moines and went to Valley High School in West Des Moines and then on to Iowa State University in Ames. That is where I learned deadlines matter.

Creativity is more than just looking pretty. Marketing collateral shouldn’t cost a fortune. Simplicity always wins. Graphics should make a serious impact on their audience. Deadlines are called deadlines for a reason. Branding matters. Great design is in the details. Beautiful creative can be utilized by any industry. Loving what you do makes all the difference. (I do!)
