CREATING ART AND MEDIA FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
There are many ways to tell a story. For me, images have a way of getting to the heart of it all.
I am Susan Tiihonen - a video producer, illustrator, website designer and graphic design artist. In my last career, I worked as a front line crisis counsellor and advocate in the social service sector. I see how power and privilege play out in our society and I am passionate about using art and media to educate, highlight and empower.
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.
