GET TO KNOW US
"IN ORDER TO BE IRREPLACEABLE, ONE MUST ALWAYS BE DIFFERENT."
- Coco Chanel
With 8+ years experience in creative media and marketing, native Houstonian Shannon Parker brings a dynamic visual perspective to each and every project she touches. She also has an affinity for being completely ridiculous and fun to work with. Did we mention fun? She's fun.
Parker began freelancing her talents to an array of local businesses in 2012 while holding a corporate position as Marketing Director - and completely fell in love with not only helping clients to realize their aesthetic vision, but also conceptualizing fresh marketing approaches. This overwhelming satisfaction and energy eventually drove Parker to leave her corporate job in late 2013 and begin freelancing full time as Shannon Parker Creative. Shortly thereafter, she also launched Brewheart Apparel, a clothing and accessories online store/local pop-up geared towards a passion for craft beer. Both of these endeavors helped pave the way in establishing her nearly endless professional and social network, and nothing gives her more joy than making connections as well as connecting others.
A FEW PROJECTS FOR SOME BRILLIANT BUSINESSES THAT MAKE US FEEL ALL WARM AND FUZZY INSIDE.
UNCLE BEAN'S COFFEE RUSTI HENDRIX, COO
“Working with Design Riot was a dream! Shannon made the whole process of brand identification apparent and painless. Communication was clear and I knew from the beginning I was working with professionals. She was quick to return emails, text, and phone calls and was very patient with me when I was indecisive. I would highly recommend hiring them for your branding needs and I look forward to working with them again on future projects.“
BUCK'S BARBEQUE CO. JIM BUCHANAN, OWNER & PIT MASTER
"I selected Design Riot to handle our logo design, brand development, website, and social media launch because I had previously worked with them at another restaurant and was familiar with the quality of their work. Their creativity is really what sets them apart from other brand developers. I had an idea for what I wanted my new restaurant's image to be, gave them a mock-up of it, and they hit the ground running. I've had other restaurateurs, food writers, and diners comment on how much they like the logo, and how clean the website is. To say that I'm happy would be a vast understatement. You only get one shot to set establish your brand for the first time; make the right choice and have Design Riot do it for you.''

"I have been running a successful practice on my own for the past 6 years, but within the past year I began to notice that while my business was strong, it still lacked steady growth. I began to recognize there were many advantages to advertising that I was not yet taking advantage of & various social media platforms that, while I was dabbling in them, I wasn't using the full potential of these platforms in order to get better exposure for my business. I had the goals, I had the ideas, I had the drive, but I had NO IDEA where to begin! What are my first steps towards taking my small business to the next level & begin putting myself on the same playing field as all the rest?
Well, luckily I had to look no further than Design Riot.
Shannon was amazing to work with, not only because of her knowledge and expertise in design & business marketing, but also because she took the time to listen to my ideas. We set meetings so that they could get to know not only the inner workings of my business, but she got to know ME as well. She took my passion & used that as fuel to create a marketing plan that was unique to me & my vision. As with any small business owner I'm very hands on & protective of my business, and I was so grateful that she didn't try to take over the project and tell me what to do. She instead listened, offered insight and when my mind would draw a blank, offer suggestions, and helped guide me through the process.
The end result? Pure satisfaction with the final products! I'm beyond grateful for the work Shannon has done for me and I intend to continue working with Design Riot on my many ideas for the future!''
