Cowboy and Sue Fisher, owners of Fisher Studios, have extensive experience in graphic design, advertising and marketing.
Cowboy got his early hands-on training at several New York ad agencies. There he had the opportunity to develop his design and typography skills, and he put his natural writing talents to work to create copy. His leadership qualities was evident as he quickly worked his way into management positions.
In 1983, Cowboy was offered an Art Director position at one of the world's largest print media agencies in Manhattan, but he passed on this offer. He had visited Greensboro, NC, fallen in love with the area, and made plans to move south. In Greensboro, he continued to work as a graphic artist.
With a lifelong love of art, Sue received her degree in Commercial Graphics from RTC/RCC. The intense pace of their well-known graphic arts program well prepared her for the demanding world of marketing. While honing her illustration and design skills, she learned the technical aspects of the printing industry. While at RTC, Sue also had the opportunity to be involved in a grant program to test the viability of the first Macintosh computers as they related to graphic design and her digital design skills grew as the Apple brand grew.
Following her graduation in 1986, Sue was hired by a clothing manufacturer in Greensboro to develop various screen and applique designs for clothing. She also continued to do freelance work in advertising and marketing.
In the spring of 1988, Cowboy and Sue met and, since that time, have been inseparable. Later that year they married. At the same time, they decided it was only natural to merge their professional lives, and Fisher Studios was formed.
Now, years later, the design, illustration and copywriting skills the couple had when they met are still the basis for the services they provide today. Though technically many things have changed, and more and more digital and web-based services are now available, nothing beats the solid foundation of strong design and marketing offered by Fisher Studios!
