Welcome to The Designing Chica.
My name is Susana Sanchez-Young, la Chica in Jefe!
And it’s a pleasure to meet you.
I’m a visual journalist with over 19 years experience in newspaper design and graphic/photo illustration. My design work has covered everything from presidential inaugurations to Spanx for men to nudist camps in South Florida… and so much more. My designs and illustrations have been recognized by the Society of News Design and the Virginia, Florida and California Press Associations.
I am available for freelance graphic design, logos, brochures, corporate branding and identity. Hit me up on my contact page!
As an artist, I’m inspired by my culture and current events, and I have made a series of graphic illustrations that you can buy as prints and cards, posters, coffee mugs, and other cool stuff. Check out my store!
I’m also a dancer, Adobe PhotoShop master, a mother and a social networker. I love all things Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Frida Kahlo and Hello Kitty! I am married to my best friend and we have two adorable kids and two dogs.
