I'm the co-founder and creative director of Motto, a brand strategy and design firm led by myself and Ashleigh Hansberger. We are highly sought after for our vision, inspiring approach, unorthodox leadership style and meticulous nature. Our work ethic and expectations are of the highest caliber - we find the true integrity of a brand and bring it to life through design in a way that connects with the audience. The commitment we make to our clients is driven by our desire to see them happy and successful. The experience of working with us – who we are, how we see the world – is unique and relevant to that growth. We work with clients all over the world on issues of brand strategy, brand positioning, brand identity, package design, web and mobile UI/UX design and print. See more at www.wearemotto.com.

    Sunny drives the design strategy for Motto's clients. She was born with a very special gift - the ability to see a brand come alive from the very beginning. Sunny's work and thought leadership has landed Motto's work in numerous publications including Print, HOW Magazine, The Dieline, Lovely Package, Awwwards, LogoLounge, Big Book of Packaging, Reader's Digest and MSN Business. In 2012, she was the judge for the HOW Logo Design Awards. She is also currently an author for the Awwwards, an online showcase of the world's best websites.

She is a breakfast lover, silent film aficianado and lover of paper boy hats.
