Who is that Quacked Duck?

My name's Susan Tournour and I love to make communication clean and beautiful!

My skills lie in print graphic design, web design, corporate branding, social media, writing, and motion graphics with experience in creating advertising campaigns, search engine optimization, developing production tracking systems, and photography. Multiple projects I've been a part of have been award-winning or turned into internal templates for others' use.

Previously, I was one of the graphic designers for Cushman & Wakefield's Florida Marketing Team, where I was responsible for the design and execution of custom marketing collateral and promotional materials for the Central & North Florida markets, specializing in digital marketing via websites and videos. Prior to that, I was the Graphic Designer and Social Media Manager for Diversified Exposure, Inc., where I oversaw the public face of the company and all artwork for various websites. Other experience includes e-learning design for Infosource, Inc., and an internship with the Hard Rock Café.
