Rick Landers earned his stripes working in print and packaging design studios in Philadelphia. The call of entrepreneurialism led him to earn his MFA in Design at the School of Visual Arts, when upon graduation he teamed with his logical business partner to build Landers Miller Design. Wielding simply his Leuchtturm sketchbook, trusty circle template and .7mm mechanical pencil, and a MacBook Pro, Rick can concept a book, bang out playful illustrations, and even organize a closet with great precision. In his free time Rick is an avid Flyers fan/Rangers heckler, true believer in the Phils and attempts to run a handful of miles each week. Rick revels in the 6 a.m. dog walk with a proper cup of coffee followed by the joyous rigor of morning elementary school prep.
We work with creative, design-led partners who possess the courage to differentiate through design, to produce work that we are collectively proud of. Working together, or independently, we partner with individuals, brands, and agencies to collaboratively solve difficult challenges by generating intelligent print and digital experiences with a balance of clarity, functionality, and interaction at a high level of finish. Most importantly, we have a damn good time doing it.
At the age of 8, Colleen was introduced to MacPaint on the Macintosh 128k, fell in love with combining words and pixels on happy interfaces, and it has been hard to pry her away since. From print to web to interaction and back around, Colleen has mixed her passions for design, reading, food, travel and sport into a work and study path that has led her through such adventures including a ’90s web design startup, magazine creative direction, a career-shifting MFA in Interaction Design, and a dream-turned-reality to design for the Food Network, HGTV, and Travel Channel. After her morning cross fit sessions, Colleen is a creative director with R/GA Portland working across accounts including Nike, McDonalds, CVS Health, One Touch, Innova Sport, and Hyperice to name a few.
