THERESA PARIS / Graphic Designer

Growing up in culturally-rich Ann Arbor, MI, and in a household with several creative role models, it's not surprising Theresa Paris would one day become a successful graphic designer. In her youth, Theresa studied fine art, architecture, and dance. Those early art forms remain a strong influence on her work today; designs and layouts that are clean, spacially balanced, unique, elegant, and appealing. Her forte is the ability to take complex concepts and distill them into bold, yet simple and effective design solutions.


Theresa began freelancing as a designer in 1993 shortly after graduating cum laud from University of California at Berkeley's Graphic Design Certification Program. Theresa's trademark style and dynamic design capabilities continue to receive increasing recognition.
