Susan Leinen Design
Susan Leinen Design has been providing small businesses and non-profit organizations with solutions for marketing both on-line and in print since 2008. I specialize in finding web and print design solutions to meet the needs of my small business and non-profit clients. Unique and creative branding is developed and then used to help my clients market that brand effectively through professionally designed print materials and a current and relevant website.
My educational and professional background is in art, technology and education. This varied skill set prepared me to launch my own design business. In 2008, I identified a need when several non-profit organizations that I was involved with needed custom websites. I set out to learn what it would take to design quality custom websites to meet these needs.
My success in these initial projects brought my efforts in front of small businesses who were experiencing similar needs for both graphic design and website development.
In 2010, I began to do graphic design work for Hunter Douglas in their pilot Design Center Program. This association brought me into contact with many business owners in the Home Fashion and Interior Design industries. This program also gave me opportunities to research and share information about the emerging growth of Social Media Marketing through continuing education development and seminar speaking.
2010 was also the year I began to develop websites using WordPress and the Genesis framework. Since then, I've designed more than 100 websites in WordPress, learning the in's and out's of themes, plugins, ecommerce solution and hosting platforms. This experience has enabled me to create secure custom websites with all the functionality that my clients need.
I have now worked with over 225 companies in many different industries. I value each one as it has given me the opportunity to serve with diligence, increase my own knowledge and skill level and bring great web and graphic solutions to the market.
My interest in art started at a young age and I've filled up sketchbook after sketchbook with drawings, ideas and observations about life. On any given day, I'd like nothing better than to drop everything and head outside with my sketchbook and pens.
I delight in the beauty that God has made and marvel at both the grandeur and the intricate detail it contains. Of course dropping everything to sketch doesn't happen too often as I am now often at the keyboard of the computer and creating with pixels instead of pens. Design, development and brand creation is both challenging and enjoyable for me; the best part is creating something that helps my clients succeed in their businesses.
By doing all things to the glory of God, I am rewarded by work that represents my values and brings satisfaction to my clients and to myself.
"It took me years to find someone who could help me with all my graphic design and social networking. And Susan's done a great job. For the first time we're consistently updating our website, blogging, adding photos to Pinterest, using Facebook and getting professional looking newsletters out on a regular basis. I couldn't be happier, and what's best, it's affordable!"

It has been a pleasure working with Susan Leinen Design on the collaboration & design of my new website.
Throughout the process Susan provided clear instructions on what I should prepare in order to review and assess my wishes for a comprehensive website. The final product is more beautiful than I anticipated! Susan is thoughtful and detailed in her process and ask for final reviews & includes any edits.
My website was designed & went live much sooner than I had anticipated. Thank you Susan for outstanding excellent work! I couldn't be more pleased.
