Small and Mighty Creative Graphic Design Boutique

Nancy Ruzow
I began my career many moons ago, on the heels of receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design.

After working in the promotional art departments of 2 very different publications: Progressive Grocer and Playboy, I started Ruzow Graphics.

Since then, I’ve carved out a niche with companies that consider me and my collaborators to BE their creative department. TOGETHER we create marketing materials that help our clients reach their fullest potential by delivering cutting-edge materials that are professional, engaging, and effective.

Ruzow Graphics is also a great resource when your staff is overloaded, when a special project needs an outside spark, or when it’s time to light a fire under a project that no one else has time to do. We want you to think of us as the design department in your back pocket.

On the personal side, I live in the New York City suburb of Westport, Connecticut with my usband and a crazy cat. I play tennis, visit beaches, grow cactus, and drink sake in my spare time.

My design influences are Milton Glaser, Joan Miro, Paul Rand, and Crayola Crayons.I feel incredibly lucky to get to do what I love all day (and sometimes night).

The work of Ruzow Graphics has been recognized with 70+ national and a few local design awards

GDUSA American Graphic Design • GDUSA American Web Design • Healthcare Marketing Association • Desi Awards • Advertising Club of Westchester

I am a member of the following organizations

  • AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Artists), Board Member, Connecticut Chapter, Sustaining Member
