The founder of SUS Magazine, Ruth Vernotico will walk attendees through the daily practice they've developed over their 25+ years as a creative and what their process is from start to finish, with actionable examples. Ruth will tie this experience into the founding of SUS and how they got from idea to publication - highlighting the partnerships they developed and the community members that have been instrumental in the building of the company. 

About Ruth:

Ruth was raised in California, but spent the last 25 years of their life in the South. Their creative endeavors include: digital and practical graphic design, photography, writing and musical production. SUS started, like a lot of things in Ruth's life, as a joke, and manifested into a publication that sought to increase the visibility of 2SLGBTQIA+ people in Central Oregon.
