About

Suzanne Hendrix

Designer   |   Creator   |   Communicator   |   Collaborator   |   Brand Builder

My passion for great design is the fuel I use to deliver a transformative impact on my client’s brands and businesses.

I produce fresh creative work centered on a core strategic idea that translates across channels and emotionally engages audiences. Great design is about solving client opportunities with unique design thinking while building the brand over time with every new project.

My design sensibility has been shaped by:

  • a fine arts degree in graphic design
  • experience in agency and corporate marketing organizations
  • the ins and outs of growing a thriving design studio
  • working with smart clients
  • partnering with marketing communication experts from other disciplines
  • a desire for continuous learning and exploring new ideas

I’ve had the pleasure of working with a variety of clients spanning many industries, from internationally recognized luxury resort/hospitality properties, Fortune 500 companies, insurance, and financial institutions to healthcare institutions, utilities, non-profit organizations, real estate developers / builders / architects / interior designers and others.

Happy Clients

Suzanne has a great talent for visualizing the essence of a brand.

It is vital for me, as a brand strategist, to partner with a strong graphic designer to fully define a brand and then execute the myriad details that go into a brand relaunch. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Suzanne on many consulting engagements and she remains my preferred designer. Smart, easy to work with, versatile and extremely talented, Suzanne consistently brings ‘next level’ quality design to each and every marketing and communication challenge.

Cindy Anderson, Brand and Marketing Strategy Consultant

Suzanne is creative, intensely thoughtful and brings an unerring aesthetic to every project.

I’ve worked with her on a wide range of assignments, large and small. Her marketing savvy and keen understanding of visual language always result in effective, nuanced design. She’s talented, versatile and insightful—the perfect partner!

Farley Kern, Chief Communications Officer / GuideWell / Florida Blue

Suzanne’s designs are simply stunning—creative, on strategy, and timeless.

Having a graphic designer who is a true, responsive partner is invaluable to a company’s success. Suzanne Hendrix is certainly one of those partners. I’ve had the privilege of working with her for many years and in multiple roles, including rebranding projects, print and digital advertising, and marketing collateral. I would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone seeking the ultimate professional graphic designer. You certainly will not be disappointed.

Craig Schoninger, Director of Sales and Marketing, Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts

Suzanne can be relied on to always bring a level of professionalism to projects that is hard to match.

Suzanne Hendrix has a talent and vision for marketing that goes beyond her creative and technical skills. She takes the time to learn her client’s needs and audiences and asks thoughtful questions about what the client hopes to achieve with the design project. Over the years and through a wide range of projects, Suzanne has met every challenge I brought her by creating sharp, contemporary, award-winning designs.

Judi Spann, APR, CPRC, Public Relations and Marketing Professional

Suzanne has helped me create and defend brand standards at three different companies now and remains my go-to designer.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Suzanne for more than 20 years, during which time we’ve experienced massivechanges in how people communicate and how design is done. With so many people claiming to be true designers (just because they have a Mac), it can be costly and time consuming to separate the wheat from the chaff.—Suzanne is the wheat. She continually evolves her natural talent for creativity and has a tremendous eye. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Suzanne to anyone who needs great design.

Leslie Wright, VP Agency Growth & Development, Brightway Insurance

Suzanne’s vision and creativity have been an integral part of NFSSE’s branding and success.

For more than 10 years, my staff and I have worked closely with Suzanne Hendrix Design in telling our story.Her patient and insightful listening skills have translated into our exceptional brand identity, branding for our sub-brands and micro-enterprises—along with advertising, packaging, signage, wayfinding and collateral, including annual and capital campaigns.

Sally Hazelip, Head of School

The brand identity Suzanne created for my business has truly opened doors for me, and the value of this alone is priceless!

Suzanne created my brand over 10+ years ago when I was starting my own floral design business. I will never forget the moment she unveiled the logo that is now Liz Stewart Floral Design—I wept! I still love her most excellent work, which has stood the test of time and continues to get rave reviews every time I give out a business card. I recommend her highly.
