Jessica Suhr – Owner & Creative Director, Perennial Creative

She’s a dyed-in-the-wool designer, cat lady, dog mom, toddler mom, wife, plant lover, estate sale hoarder, art collector, and architecture aficionado. Above all, she’s been obsessed with the nuances of typographic design and branding at all scales since before she knew this could be a job.
