About Cyndilu

Life is full of funny twists and turns and what you set out to start doing is often not where you end up!

This is the way it has been for my graphics career – I started by making posters and anything else – signs for a musical in our little hometown even. It was a lot of fun and I just loved doing hand lettering and challenging myself to make things look nice. In 1996 my poster making became a part of a position as a Concert Series Coordinator and I was making 2-3 posters a week and I started making the programs for the performances also. It was a wonderful time of learning and honing a skill that I loved! In 2001 when I left that position I was so blessed to have one of the professors whom I had worked with take me in her office and encourage me STRONGLY to go to college for graphic design as she felt I had a natural aptitude for it. So…

In 2003 I started college in Phoenix Arizona at the Collins College of Design – and I graduated in 2005 with an Associates Degree in Visual Communications. It was there that Design by Cyndilu was born! I have worked off and on for the past 10 years now doing freelance work and have completely enjoyed that! Over the past couple of years I have started to focus in the area of Logo creation, Photography, and Text on Graphics as well as digital graphics needs for social media platforms. Creating a complimentary suite of graphics for clients from around the globe is one of the most fun things I have ever done – ok except for Photography… which brings me back to we don’t always do what we thought…

Photography has become my most recent love and the excitement of seeing someone light up when they look at photos that share a portion of their own life captured for all time makes my face break out in a really BIG SMILE! I have recently created a personalized calendar using photographs from the garden of the person who the calendar was for… and they LOVED it! oh what fun! Capturing a feeling through the lens of the camera is a challenge that brings me great treasure. The moments we share in life and the moments that we are in a state of peace and contentment are wonderful moments to be shared! Some of my favorite things to photograph are people, plants, animals, scenic views and the clouds in the sky! The clouds are the most fulfilling for me as you are capturing a moment in time that will never again be! That painting in the sky would forever be gone were it not captured through the lens. One of the other things I love to do with my photography is to add text to the picture while maintaining the integrity of the photo itself. See an example here:

Photo with beauty of Nature and this Saying by Zig Ziglar - If you want to feel rich, just count the things you have that money can't buy!

This World is Full of Riches Oft Overlooked! Blessings

My Facebook Page is full of Text on Graphics – much of the photography is my own with a few from friends or family and the saying range from famous sayings to personally crafted quotes, prose and says Cyndilu sayings that I hope you will enjoy.
