WE ARE YOUR CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVERS
We design creative and well-crafted solutions that allow our clients to effectively represent, communicate and market themselves.
We practice the art of brand identity, print design, web design, and creative solutions.
We customize our process based on our clients' needs, the scope of the project and budget. For every project though, our process includes: identifying your identity and message, research, design and development, and delivery of your stellar new design.
WHERE WE'VE BEEN SEEN
WHO WE ARE
Liz - Owner and Creative Director
Liz hails from America's mitten, Michigan, where she and her sister grew up skiing, hunting, and playing in the great outdoors. It was her love of skiing and playing in the outdoors that brought her to and has kept her in Park City. Before her monumental move, she received a BFA with an emphasis in Graphic Design from Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, MI. While still a student, Liz worked as a freelance designer for a wide range of clients, and continued her freelance career after graduating. She is quite the perceptive, insightful, creative, and fun young lady, which you will find infused in her design. She believes design should be the marrying of art with functionality (purpose + impact) to communicate, emphasize, and elicit excitement about a particular brand's message and purpose.

Christian - Owner, Operations Director, and Designer
Christian was raised in the fine city of Rochester, NY. He found his way to Park City by way of New York City where he attended Fordham University and received a BA in Philosophy with a minor in Business. Alongside his two brothers, he flourished in skiing and playing ice hockey, and it was his prevailing love for the great outdoors that enticed him to move from the Big Apple to the Great West. Christian is a man of many talents and adds a 'golden touch' to anything he does. He is intelligent, relatable, and a go-getter in every aspect of his life. He never thought he would be a co-owner of a design studio, but from the get-go of dreaming up Highlo, he has been delighted on how awesome it is to build a company where he can fuse his business and philosophy background alongside his many other talents.

Liz and Christian met ski instructing at Deer Valley Ski Resort a few years back and now are a husband and wife team. Their shared passions and complementing attributes made them a natural fit for each other. Taking their entrepreneurial spirits, Christian's business strengths, and Liz's passion and know-how for design, they threw around the idea of starting their own graphic design studio, and shortly after, Highlo Designs was born.
