the wright design - Suzanne Wright





I've presented my resume including education, experience and qualifications and have supplied examples of my work on my portfolio pages. I chose to use this page to let others speak for me. I've collected notes received over the years and posted some here. I hope they help round out your perception of who I am, and give you some insight into how I work with others—and my ability to get things done. More recommendations can be found at LinkedIn.





Suzanne always does great work and provides her client's creative in a timely manner to meet deadlines.
She is very professional and a joy to work with!

Nice job on the website re-make!
The photographs are fabulous -- nice snapshots of the fair life at one event or another. They invited me to slow down and check each one out to see if I recognized anyone...
And I learned something new...did you know that I can join the El Dorado County Fair Association? It might have been on the old site—
but on this new improved site, the information popped out—and this is definitely something my family will take a look at more closely.
See you at the fair!

–Letter from a patron to the Board,

They Love It and so do I. It looks so sharp in front of the office and

On behalf of the Board of Directors, El Dorado County Fair Staff, and all the wonderful folks who attended our many events over the last couple of years, we would like to thank you for all the success you have brought to the Fair.

Your expertise and originality in logo and theme designs, posters, web design, tickets, schedules, mugs, wine glasses, tee-shirts, photography and video have resulted in unparalleled growth and success at not only the annual Fair, but also our inaugural "Tasting Affair," and the Annual 4th of July Blast. Attendance for the 2004 County Fair was 17% over 2003 with over 70,000 attendees.

We look forward to The Wright Design's continued original and inspirational products to showcase El Dorado County Fair events.

Thank you again for your excellent work.

Thank you Suzanne for being part of our team!

Sandy Kleinke, Classified Manager, The Press Democrat

You two (Sam Caddle and Suzanne Wright) have been the best resource that I have had. I appreciated the time you spent explaining things to me. You are great trainers!

–Cindy Roach, Special Sections Coordinator, The Press Democrat

I wanted to commend you on the terrific job you and your folks have done in putting the creative training manual and sessions together. This is exactly what we need in the way of making sure we are training our sales reps properly. Great job!

–Joanne Davey, Advertising Director, The Press Democrat

Those classes were great! In fact, I’m going to miss going to them…the presenters were well prepared and knew their subject well.
I felt we learned a great deal—a lot of mental prodding took place and I felt a closer understanding to the creative services staff’s strengths and their needs.
I also got my brain “back in gear” and was very pleased with the work I did for the class. Thanks for letting us take part!

–Sandy Kleinke, Classified Manager, The Press Democrat
(about the Creative Ad Design Workshops I developed)

To a creative staff that continually makes me a great salesperson!
You are the best.

Suzanne’s creativity, combined with her skills with computers and software programs, made her a key player. Her position required the ability to handle multiple and diverse tasks at one time, something Suzanne was able to do consistently while meeting deadlines. Suzanne always approached her job responsibilities with professionalism and efficiency.

I have seen a take-charge attitude and attention to detail from Suzanne that are particularly noteworthy. Her diligence and loyalty are also major factors to her success.
