LORI PASULKAGRAPHIC DESIGN | PRINT + WEB
Principal | Creative Harvest
Lori Pasulka, principal of Creative Harvest, has been offering clients creative solutions to graphic design challenges since 1998. Her previous experience as art director for The Phoenician Resort (1994-1998), as well as graphic designer at The Pointe Hilton Resorts (1987-1994) provided the solid foundation to approach each new client project with creativity and thoughtful expertise.
Lori currently works full-time as a graphic designer for ASU Enterprise Partners – a private nonprofit organization made up of distinct entities (comprised of the ASU Foundation, University Realty, Arizona Technology Enterprises, ASU Research Enterprise and the Research Collaboratory at ASU) that raise and invest resources — including philanthropy, real assets and the transfer of technology — for the benefit of Arizona State University. ASU Enterprise is among the AZCentral.com Top Companies to work for in Arizona for 5 years in a row (2014 -2018). Its mission is to advance the success of Arizona State University as a New American University.
Within the first 6 months at ASU Enterprise Partners, Lori was responsible for designing and producing high-profile wall graphics on the 6th Floor of the Fulton Center in the The Lincoln Conference Center. This wall of philanthropy later won gold and a certificate of merit.
In addition she was responsible for creating a professional high-end presentation piece for housing a collection of case statement brochures for Campaign ASU 2020. These custom boxes were presented by development professionals to potential high-end donors.
In 2016, prior to employment with ASU Enterprise Partners Lori assisted the creative advertising “store experience” team at the corporate headquarters for PetSmart as a full-time contractor for a 7-month assignment. Projects ranged from digital billboards, ad rack flyers and in-store signage to promotional banners, A-frame sidewalk signs, bagstuffers, and a myriad of other projects. PetSmart has stores across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada.
A contributing member of the local WordPress community, Lori expands her professional skills while networking with others who recognize the popularity of WordPress—an open source content management system (CMS), which makes up 27% of all websites on the internet. In 2012 and 2013 Lori contributed volunteer graphic design services for WordCampPHX—an annual sold-out weekend that attracts 700+ avid WordPress fans from all over the U.S. to downtown Chandler. She was an assistant organizer for the AZ WordPress Meetup Group (2013-2016).
Lori earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Art, with a concentration in Visual Communications from Illinois State University. She has served on the Program Advisory Committee for The Art Institute of Phoenix (2001-2005), and has been a member and served in leadership roles with the Arizona chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) (1998-2004). Ms. Pasulka is active with the American Marketing Association (AMA) volunteering with their Special Interest Group (SIG) events. She has also been a member of the Phoenix Adobe InDesign Users Group (PHXIDUG).
