Danielle Richard Danielle Richard has achieved what many dream of: establishing a successful, independent business doing what she loves. Richard’s professional foray into print and design began in high school, when she worked as a typesetter. Richard continued to expand her knowledge through print-related jobs while pursuing her graphic design degree at Louisiana Tech University, and after graduating she moved to Dallas with a position at a design firm. After returning to Shreveport and working for several respected print shops, in 2009 Richard took the leap and launched Richard Creative.
Richard Creative has a simple mission: to show local business owners that “beautiful design does not have to be expensive.” This entrepreneurial effort has earned a reputation for effective, prompt design, while maintaining a commitment to what Richard has dubbed “pretty, practical design.” Richard Creative has taken on a wide variety of projects and clients, and each completed job is evidence of Richard’s knowledge and standards. In addition, Richard recently partnered to create Llama Labs, an online business specializing in social media marketing strategies.
Richard is also the owner of the Etsy.com shop “Richard Creative” and is a regular participant in the biannual Texas Avenue Makers Fair. Visitors to both locations can find her signature illustrated calendar towels, printable PDF patterns, as well as whimsical magnetized organizational tools: “Clean” and “Dirty” dishwasher labels, dry erase refrigerator calendars, and mason jar labels.
Richard serves as the vice president of communications for the A.C. Steere PTA and is a board officer and pivotal member of the American Advertising Federation of Shreveport-Bossier.
