Susan Kirkland: Designer and Creative Services Entrepreneur

Susan Kirkland is a graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design and author of the book Start and Run a Creative Services Business.

She is a seasoned professional designer with experience in both ad agencies and corporate in-house departments.

In the interview, she talks about a number of topics and experiences as an artist, writer and graphic designer, including sexism in art school and the commercial art field; how politics affects her work and interactions; how her art sometimes springs from traumatic circumstances; attitudes of others toward talented women; and what makes the field – and being a freelancer – exciting and challenging for her.

Her book is Start & Run A Creative Services Business.
