Our Principals are passionate about relationship-building. Susan, Julie and Kenna believe that their personal interaction with clients is an integral part of the design process. And they’re right.
Susan Steeves, BID RID MBA LEED AP
When asked what she likes most about design Susan will tell you “it’s working with so many interesting people and developing strong and lasting relationships with clients. It is very rewarding to guide organizations through the design process and to see and hear how excited the people who live, work and play in the space are when it’s complete.” What sets SSDG apart? “Our designers are passionate about design and love what they do. They go the extra mile for our clients to make sure that the design process is truly inspirational.”
Julie Campbell, DID RID LEED AP
For Julie, SSDG designs are “about the clients. Our designs are a reflection of our clients’ brand, image, and goals.” When asked to describe SSDG, Julie doesn’t hesitate: “We have a team of thinkers. Everyone is a designer and has good ideas. SSDG is original. We push the envelope to stay fresh and unique. And we care. There is a high level of personal ownership, attention to detail and client service.”
Kenna Manley, BADID RID
In asking Kenna what it is about design that she loves the most, Kenna emphatically says “The people! Everyday I get to work with a team of passionate and inspired designers who love what they do, and build meaningful, lasting relationships with amazing clients. “The heart of great design,” Kenna explains “is a supportive environment where the designers are collaborative, supportive, and encouraged. SSDG has always been a design leader because of the exceptional workplace culture that was cultivated by the founding partners, and that we work very hard to continue today.”
