Libby Russell is a multi-disciplined Designer / Art Director that has over 18 years experience with a spectrum of clients and projects. When she's not working on something in design, she's most likely got some type of art project in the works.
"I approach every project with the needs of the end user in mind. My goal is to design solutions to facilitate their experience, making sure the strategy is efficient, effective, and on budget.
I believe a key part of any process for me, design or otherwise, is to possess a good sense of humor."

“Libby's ability to communicate keen insights through design never ceased to amaze me. She took great care to understand and distill an array of information into easily digestible stories through her designs. She is an asset to any creative or insights team looking to elevate messaging by way of design and presentation. I'd gladly recommend her and work with her again!”

“Libby is a master of infusing personality into corporate communications. I saw her transform the way client-facing deliverables looked to embody the culture of her company. Strategic, yet creative. Libby has a sharp ability to absorb a company and its ethos, and seamlessly inject those into all public facing material, from the website, to the client deliverables, down to the business cards. She is the person you need to help you keep pace with innovation in communication and design.”
—Ken Howie, Partner at Magnolia Innovation
“Libby is reliable and dedicated to doing great work. As the only designer at our company, she juggles multiple project requests from a team of 20+ researchers as well as upper management. She is able to manage and prioritize her work to meet several overlapping deadlines. Libby and I collaborated on numerous projects where she created visually engaging graphics for various client facing reports and presentations. Her ability to illustrate and present research findings in a meaningful way has positively impacted the quality of the company's deliverables. She is creative, communicates her ideas effectively, and works well with many different types of people. She is direct and will tactfully give her honest opinions. She not only gets the job done but is also fun to work with in the process! On top of her regular work responsibilities, she managed website re-design project from start to finish with both internal staff and external vendors. While working closely with her during the pre-design/research phase, she ensured the team stayed on track with the project timeline through regular communication. In addition, she grew the company's social media presence through Facebook, Twitter, and the company blog.”

“In the time I worked with Libby, I saw client deliverables go from good to fantastic. Libby has a gift of making visuals leap off the page. Her infographics, presentation templates, and design input enhanced both our storytelling to client teams and our value proposition as consultants. While I wasn't directly involved, I know Libby played an integral role in the company's re-branding, website redesign and enhanced social media presence; the output of which is stellar and vastly improved. As a colleague, I really respected Libby's attention to detail, tenacity, and ability to accept critique that was often difficult to articulate. Highly recommended.”

She has a diverse body of work and multi-disciplinary approach that will make her a valuable add to a studio of any type. Not only does Libby's work reveal her attention to detail, but in many cases her sense of humor comes through.”
