Hello! I’m Barb Chotiner and am a graphic designer + illustrator with 20 years of advertising and design industry experience. With a BFA from Syracuse University in Communication Design, and a MFA from the University of the Arts, I have worked with clients on projects of all shapes + sizes, from small non-profits to large Fortune 500 companies, and everything in between. I have worked in New York City (at a large ad agency, a boutique design firm, as well as Jim Henson Productions) and Boston (at an award winning kids design firm and a small ad agency,) and in 2001 moved to Philadelphia, where I now reside. In 2001, I also opened my freelance art + design studio business: bz designstuff. (My maiden name was Zuckerman - hence the "BZ.")
I love being able to design from my studio and work one-on-one with clients to get them exactly what they need. I live just outside Philadelphia (in a pretty little suburb) and feel fortunate to have many local (+ distant clients), many of which I have gotten via word of mouth.
