CREATING ART AND MEDIA FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
There are many ways to tell a story. My name is Susan Tiihonen (she/her they/them) and I use an array of mediums to capture the essence of any message or content I create.
With 20+ years of experience in the arts and social service/social justice sector, I can work with you, your company or organization to engage every intended audience with content that is accessible and engaging.
Previous contracts include: illustrations, graphic design for online and print media, various forms of animated videos,
educational videos, creative videos
documentaries, audio projects and sound design.
I recognize how power and privilege play out in our society. I also recognize that there are many different consumers with, with differing needs. I am passionate about using art and media to educate, highlight and empower those who the message is for.
Should it be a stop motion animation, a graphic novel comic or a uniquely designed report, I am here to approach all projects with fresh eyes, fervour and a desire to understand the bigger picture and the personal experience.
Feel free to get in touch with me anytime. I look forward to hearing about your ideas!
I want all of my clients to experience the full range of possibilities when creating a report or document with me.
I use original ideas to convey both the practical elements and the essence of who you are. Using modern design and organic illustrational elements, I can make your product stand out from the rest.
Illustrations have the power
to make a story come to life.
I have experience illustrating graphic novel comics, logos, whiteboard animations and have found ways to pull in original drawings and designs into digital, animated or print media. Let's discuss how we can use illustration to make your message be heard.
All of my services exist to amplify your message and to capture the feel of what you are wanting to share. Website design is no exception. Let's connect to discuss how I can bring your ideas to life.
The media arts play a huge role in how we see ourselves and the world around us. They have a way of moving an individual past facts and stats, to a place of intrinsic understanding. They are an accessible and energizing way to share information and this is why I love my work so much.
