I love the process of taking a story or an idea and bringing it to life. One of my most gratifying feelings comes from creating works that really satisfy a client’s vision. My process starts with a deep dive into the clients’ vision, creating a mood board and then developing rough thumbnail concepts. Once we hone in on the direction, the real creativity begins!
“Working with Dorothea was a dream! Our organization found her work online, and we were taken aback by the quality of her designs. We found her illustrations to be evocative, inspirational, modern, and simply impeccable. We reached out to her, and received a prompt response. When it came time to coordinate the artwork we were hoping to commission, Dorothea took our thoughts and requests into consideration, and the level of customer service was above reproach. In the end, we received artwork that was totally in line with our expectations, and then some. We would rate our experience with Dorothea as a 10 out of 10, and would jump at the opportunity to work with her again!” ~ Kelsea Médard, Grow By Three

My company is a multidisciplinary design firm that works on a vast array of assignments. Because we have the ability to design, illustrate and create lettering design we are the perfect one-stop shop. We refer to our style as designustration because we integrate illustration and typography seamlessly into a cohesive unit. The thread the binds our work is a sense of vibrancy and playfulness.
