Hi, my name is Sunita and I love my cat. The end. I’m just kidding, sort of.
How did I end up working in Issaquah, Washington you ask?
Well let’s see… It was winter of 2011 and I was sitting on my balcony in Tallahassee, Florida, wondering what I wanted to be when I grew up. Thoughts of a graphic designer by day, superhero by night, and a cloud enthusiast always, designing and fighting off bad code etiquette. This thought bubble was quickly popped by a phone call from my pops offering me a ticket to visit him in Hawaii, and I took it! Here my two week cloud gazing vacation somehow turned into six months of endless sunsets…
Upon my return home, I realized I wanted to continue traveling. I packed one bag (full of necessities like legos, bottle of ranch, and my favorite Third Eye Blind hoodie), my cat and her ugly lucky rug, and a box of Cheez-its and headed out on the open road from Tallahassee to this great state of Washington all in the summer of 2012. From there came a very nervous interview with Paula and since then, I have made Washington my new home.
Graphic Design definitely was not my first career choice while attending Florida State University. Initially starting out as a Biology major (to please my folks), I quickly realized I wasn’t happy. Transferring my major to Art (with a concentration in drawing) and having to take a required Graphic Design course, it was there when a professor realized that I was indeed in the right major, but wrong concentration, and from there, steered me into the world of Graphic Design.
In 2007, I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from Florida State University. In 2008, I received the Addy Award for Bear Creek Music Festival’s Branding Campaign. Looking up to the likes of my heroes, Stefan Sagmeister (graphic designer) and Annie Leibovitz (photographer), I hope to continue to progress further into newer realms of design and photography through trial and error.
As a designer, I always feel that I have so much to learn and absorb. To be a designer is an never-ending journey that will never cease to surprise me. There is always something new from a design perspective, new technologies that open more possibilities, and with every new client, there are new challenges to think about.
In my humble career, I already have quite a few experiences under my belt to know that finding the “perfect” design job is like trying to find your perfect car. Lucky me, I think I found mine at CreateHive.
At a glance:
I am a cloud gazing, bacon guzzling, cat walking, horror film fanatic who loves to read and listen to great 80s music. Here’s a slim list of favorites:

To be the best artist | designer | cloud hunter | ninja | photographer to my ability. I’d also like to teach my cat, Eppley Jas how to open and close doors.
So there is it. The end. For reals this time.
