SUZY MAIERS
Graphic Designer
University of Evansville, IN
Bachelor of Fine Arts / Visual Communications

Suzy has 10+ years of professional design experience. Beginning her career as a web designer for her university magazine, Suzy quickly grew to love design in all its forms. After graduating, she created Suzanne Maiers Graphic Design while also teaching video game and web design for ID Tech camps at Arizona State University. Suzy grew and enhanced her skills through working with a new set of campers and a new set of goals each week. She collaborated closely with her director and always went above and beyond her general duties to ensure a successful camp. Her motivation and love of design did not stop there. Suzy joined Nance in 2011, and her drive was quickly proven to Orange Duck and the clients it propels.

When she is not designing, Suzy can be found roaming mountains, traveling, scheduling puppy play dates with friends and trying out new restaurants in the valley (especially if they are dog friendly).

SAUV ‘n’ BLANC
Design Interns / Administrative A
ssistants
Scottsdale University of the Alley, AZ
Bachelor of Fine Arts / Survival Studies

The twins entered life truly roughing it. However, this early setback helped them realize that they would have to work hard to make sure they never went back. They now eagerly file paperwork… sometimes perforating it along the way. Although they’re only a year old, it is evident that these girls will be excellent additions to the team as they both possess many special qualities.

Sauv, though a little more independent then her sister, is superb at thinking things all the way through. She takes her time to mull over the options of her next pounce, often seeking alone time in many different hidden confines to really let her ideas marinate.

Blanc, on the other hand, strives to be there every step of the way (literally, can you say “kitty punt”?). She continually goes above and beyond to learn what she is tasked to do, often bringing a new perspective (or toy) to the table.

With oversight from their superiors, they are on the right path to a successful career.
