In the dynamic world of design and branding, it’s not just about standing out—it’s about leaving an impact. That’s where Color Punch comes into play. With a name that effortlessly mirrors its ethos, Color Punch bursts forth as a beacon of imaginative flair and technical prowess, painting businesses and brands in the most vibrant hues of success.
Color Punch is a creative studio based in California and New York. Founders Suzannah Snell and Kari Petsche have been devoted to art and music from a very early age. The pair have over twenty years experience in the music industry working as creative directors, graphic designers and mixed media artists. They work with concert promoters producing large scale music & arts festivals nationwide, as well as work with individual artists on their tour creative, gig posters and more.
Suz studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design and quickly found her niche on the Visual Design team for prominent music festivals while still in school. Later, she ascended to the role of Creative Director at Superfly Presents, orchestrating some of the country’s premier events like Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, and Vegoose. Meanwhile, Kari honed her craft at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, majoring in design. Post-graduation, she landed a role as a designer and motion graphics animator with McFarlane Toys, eventually transitioning to an Art Director position at Dixon Schwabl Advertising. Her path then converged with Suz’s at Superfly, where their collaboration blossomed into a deep-rooted friendship. Recognizing the importance of growth, risk-taking, and refinement in the art world, they co-founded Color Punch in 2016.
Armed with an eclectic blend of skills from design to creative direction, and from fine art to motion graphics, the duo of Suz and Kari offers a rich tapestry of artistic insight to every endeavor. Their mission is to craft visual narratives that etch a memorable and positive mark on their client’s brand.
