My name is Abbey C. Suchoski, I serve self-publishing authors, event throwers and people needing all things print by creating special and personalized designs.
At a very young age I enjoyed coloring, drawing, anything crafty and creative. For my 10th birthday I designed my own birthday party invitations. My dad let me photocopy enough for all my friends, which I then custom-colored each one before handing them out. That was my first official Graphic Design project.
I have had a lot of different jobs that have utilized my design knowledge and skills. The one that helped me grow the most was as a Creative Services Coordinator at a self-publishing (and Amazon owned) company called CreateSpace. Here I had the amazing pleasure of getting the opportunity to talk with authors every day. I heard their dreams, stresses, and excitement through the book creation process. All these authors had completely different backgrounds, professions, and even sometimes languages but the one thing they all had in common was that they had a story to tell.
Whether they were a lawyer and wanted a book for their clients, a retiree that had a romantic story they have been working on for 10 years, a war veteran wanting to share his battle experience or a cancer patient that wanted to share their thoughts on the world and mortality before their life ended. They all had a story to share.
I fell in love with these authors and their stories, and the fact that they were working so hard to put them out there for the world to read. The majority of them did not understand that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done after writing and editing are complete. There are decisions to be made on what goes on the cover, what fonts to use in the interior and then there is the marketing.
I want to continue this relationship with these authors and use my knowledge to help share their stories with the world.
I also have grown a passion for nature photography. I love animals of all shapes and sizes and really enjoy capturing them with my camera and sharing them with the world. I am lucky enough to live in beautiful Charleston, SC where I am surrounded by very special places where I can see a little bit of everything from the air, land and water. Some of my current favorites are Caw Caw Interpretive Center, The Center for Birds of Prey and the Charleston jetties.
My vision is to combine my Graphic Design and Photography skills to continue to create great designs and capture beautiful photos to share.
