Hi, I'm Susannah!

Owner + Designer

I'm a designer and maker who loves creating bright and colorful products and brands for bright and colorful people like you! I am based out of Charlotte, NC and have more than 8 years of professional design and marketing experience. I have worked as a designer and digital marketing manager for a variety of local magazines and have done freelance design for multiple businesses in the Charlotte area. I launched my first creative business—Sweetpress Studio—in 2012, designing wedding, event and birthday party invitations, before turning my attention to product design with Hello Ginger in 2015. And because I'm your typical creative and my wheels are always spinning, I recently added branding and design services for female entrepreneurs to my business in early 2017.

From obsessing over color palettes to designing patterns to tediously analyzing fonts and typography, I love every aspect of the design process. Nothing makes me happier than getting lost in a complex pattern design, learning a new design trick, or settling on the perfect shade of blue. I treat my clients' work just as I do my own — I won't settle on anything less than fabulous. 

When I'm not designing or running my business, you can usually find me at home with my hubby and 5-month-old son, stalking Pinterest for color inspiration, binge-watching DVR/Netflix, scrolling through Instagram, or singing broadway showtunes offkey. And if I'm not at home, I'm probably at Target. Definitely at Target!
