Susan Rieckmann

Art Director & Principal

A graduate of the University of Central Florida, and long-time Central Floridian – Susan founded Thrive in 1994, as Graphic Visions. Having previously spent time as a designer, then art director at Pacific Printing and a few agencies – she knew having her own agency was the right path for her.

Susan laid the groundwork for Thrive Creative Labs with her unique passion for design, art and all things “creative”. And by working with Clients across many industries including marine, surf, healthcare and hospitality, Susan not only grew Thrive but sharpened her own skills. She’s truly one of the most talented designers you’ll work with.

Susan’s “hands-on”, but when she’s not at Thrive – you’ll find her (or not) traveling, surfing, skateboarding, fishing, hiking or painting.

BTW – did we mention that Susan has pink hair? Well, by the time you read this…who knows what color it might be ­čÖé
