Yozo Studio is a design-driven, almost-anything shop. We got our start with custom, handmade letterpress cards and invitations, and we still love that work. But we quickly found that our clients wanted more from us than just invites. Now we do anything from remodels to event design, focusing on using the power of tasteful and timeless design to create extraordinary spaces and events.
The theme that unites all our work, from letterpress to branding an event, is this: We’re all about the tactile. We create lasting impressions through details so compelling, you can’t help but want to touch them.
Shannon Vindiola is owner and head designer of Yozo Studio. Shannon holds a BBA in marketing and a BFA in photography. Two totally unrelated degrees that make her company work. And that juxtaposition of opposites – business + art, modern + old, casual + formal, familiar + unexpected – has come to define her style.
Shannon worked at an advertising agency for 10+ years building marketing and branding strategy for brands such as Cole Haan, Home Depot, Hummer, and Motel 6 before waking up one day to decide to move to the creative side of things. She quit her full-time gig and studied fine art, where she learned letterpress printing. Shannon loved making invitations. She immediately knew she wanted to start a stationery company. Based on client requests, Shannon expanded Yozo Studio from stationery to a wider range of design offerings. She loves going into work each day not knowing what kind of project she’ll tackle next.
