MEET DEANNA

Hello! I am Deanna Rose Sukalac and Rose Gold Studio is the curated home to my designer’s brain. Having a designer’s brain, by trade, means having a knack for a visually pleasing aesthetic, and creating products that ooze this quality. Having a designer’s brain in all other areas of life means a well-designed home, beautifully plated meals, an organized pantry showcasing lined up canisters and a toothbrush that matches the bathroom color scheme. 

I’ve had the pleasure of working with clients of all sorts, and love being a niche designer that can fill the needs of various project types. Most notably working with engaged couples to create their dream wedding stationery, I also love expanding beyond weddings to personal events, branding, and business stationery. 

Rose Gold Studio is available for hire for collaborating, concepting, designing, calligraphing, curating and styling. 

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

  • After earning her BFA in Visual Communication Design from Kent State University, Deanna immediately began work at a small design & manufacturing company in downtown Cleveland. Being one of a staff of ten employees, Deanna’s hands were involved in projects from the conception point to the final production and all the phases in between. She earned a vast knowledge of the design process in a professional setting— working with both clients & vendors and ironing out issues. Just after five years of employment, Deanna felt the urge to turn her efforts to a solo design practice. In July of 2012, Rose Gold Studio was born.  Why "rose gold"? Deanna’s middle name ‘Rose’ is shared with her all-time favorite lady, her late grandmother Rose Ann. And, why not? 

  • Deanna resides in the country outskirts of Cleveland’s East side on a 3.5 acre homestead appropriately dubbed ‘Chartreuse Acres’ with her computer engineer/ artisan - breadmaking husband, Eric, their sons, Jude & Malachi, and their dogs, Oliver & Rex. Chartreuse is Deanna’s favorite color, and ‘Chartreuse Acres’ a spin off of the premise of ‘Green Acres’ – city girl meets country boy, falls in love, and is dragged out of her glamorous lifestyle to reside on a giant plot of land in the middle of nowhere. The only difference is— deep-down, Deanna loves it, despite how out-of-place even her neutrals (leopard print, gold sequins) may seem.
