Susi, who was your first customer and where did you find it?
I work mainly from word of mouth and referrals - that is how I find my customers. A few of my first customers in the Detroit area were Southwest Solutions and Wayne County Community College District.
Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions?have provided it?
Since day one of me starting my Design Studio I have worked with Chase Bank and have been very pleased with all the business help and services they have given me.
As a business woman, what is the richness and opportunities you find today in Metro Detroit?
I feel that the people who live and work in Detroit take pride in the city. There is such a diverse cultural energy here that makes it a pleasure to do business and spend time around town. For business and networking Detroit offers such a variety of opportunities to meet people from around the state. I feel the business people in Detroit also appreciate what a graphic designer has to offer and how a good design or brand can really help their company; I am very grateful for this.
What are your future plans for Creative Studio?
The growth of my design studio is very important to me as I continue to meet and design for wonderful clients. I love the relationships I have built and would love to see the continued growth that I have been experiencing. Helping customers with their design and marketing needs is very fulfilling to me and my roll in helping their business look good and thrive is what I love most.
