Elizabeth Nici is the founder of Gusto. She thoroughly enjoys meeting new clients and learning about
their business and what makes them tick. By listening to what a client says, and more importantly, what they don't say,
she's able to present creative design solutions that are sometimes unexpected, but always appreciated.
A graduate of Mercyhurst University in Erie, Pennsylvania, Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design and also minored in Marketing. She was a member of the rowing team (NCAA) during her four years in college and competed in national championships.
Professionally, Elizabeth’s insights and comments are frequently published in Graphic Design USA, and her guest post writings have been shared in Multi Briefs. You can also find her photography featured in the Rowers Almanac.
Active in the community, Elizabeth is privileged to be a Substitute Teaching Leader for Bible Study Fellowship International in the Cleveland West class.
