About Lee Design Studio

Call Lee Design Studio and the cheerful, upbeat voice you’ll hear answer is that of founder Elisabeth Spitalny Lee. She loves what she does and has dedicated 20 years to the craft, and remains as enthusiastic and passionate as ever.  While Elisabeth embraces the latest design technology, she starts every job in a refreshingly “old school” manner: with pencil to paper.  She’s found this method provides the greatest freedom of expression when developing concepts. Elisabeth and members of her team strive to create designs with a timeless quality that transcends fads and delivers lasting value.
