Congratulations to Studio88 member Susan Thiel of Susan Thiel Design for being this week’s guest on Rick Campos’s DESIGN BIZ SURVIVAL GUIDE podcast.

Susan spent the first part of her career working for a Fortune 100 company before following her passion and deep love of design to launch her own interior design business in 2008. She is an award-winning designer and general contractor with a passion for WOWing her clients and over-delivering to exceed expectations.

We’ve loved watching Susan’s business grow and thrive since she first became a member with us back in December of 2019. She started at a dedicated desk in our co-working area and then in the middle of 2020, gave herself a promotion to a semi-private office with an extra chair where her assistant can work with her as needed. This is what Studio88 is all about!

“I have worked from home… had my own office… this is the smartest choice! Great connections, resources, and a way to keep your skills elevated in a common environment that is supportive of all levels of designers. Best decision for my business!” – Susan Thiel

We loved hearing her insights on mentorship, community, and navigating the challenges of running her own business.
