Susan Bradley is a visual stylist, storyteller and typography addict.
My life-long background with hi-res imagery, graphic design, motion and visual effects accentuates multiple platforms, digital or print — with stories seen large or small. I bring a discerning eye to brands, filmmakers, and events, helping create compelling images & authentic storytelling with a clean aesthetic and great care.
Among numerous projects, I have designed film title sequences and created detailed content via graphic design, motion and type design for over twenty-five Pixar & Disney films and shorts. Regardless of medium, my work consistently demands perfection and fluid tie-ins to branding and marketing strategies.
My design foundation began as a professional custom large–format darkroom printer in Colorado and grew into ad agency production art until I began working on feature films. Now I enjoy being an immersive designer in a variety of mediums; attentive to details while dispatching the bigger picture.
I’m a member of the Visual Effects Society (VES) and always seeking time to play with my dogs, work on passion projects and keep myself from kerning everything.
