gritty production values
We are a very tight knit group here at Rowhouse Studio. Everyone here starts with a great design instinct. We provide comments, solutions and support to each other throughout the day. We often hand off pieces of projects based on skillset and workload. The pandemic had us change how and where we work a bit, but the tools of the day allow us to be very responsive in coming back to you with great work.

Lou has owned and operated his own studio since 1990. His first job out of art school was working for the Philadelphia typographer George Stallone, where he learned to love the visual impact of typographic form. Early design years were spent doing marketing communication for retailers and corporate clients as well as designing award winning academic book covers for publishers in Philadelphia and New York.
Lou sometimes teaches graphic design for print and the web at Temple University and at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. These days, brand marketing and web design is where the rubber hits the road. Lou has several years of experience across all marketing platforms – including corporate identity, print advertising, package design, posters, brochures & catalogs, and of course design for the web and multimedia.
Serena is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in NYC where she studied graphic design. While there, she was a Dean’s List regular and a highly awarded student. In just a very short time she has proven to be a dedicated design professional. She has been here as a free-lancer since the spring of 2016, and from the beginning she has displayed excellent skills across the full suite of Adobe software. Her design sense is downright inspired, resulting in a great command of type and images. She is spot-on and very instinctive when dealing with clients and no one works harder to be responsive. She has also added a component of organization and detail to everything we do here. Through it all, Serena makes it look easy.
