Mitzi Benvenuto is a photographer/graphic designer. She has worked for over 30 years in the graphic design, pre-press and printing industries, and has over 10 years experience working as a professional photographer. Mitzi is a 1984 graduate of the St. Clair College Commercial Art Program.
In the late 80s, while working for one of the biggest printing companies in Windsor at the time, graphic design was evolving with the introduction of MacIntosh Computer systems geared toward Media Graphics. In 2006, Mitzi launched her own signature company called Mitzi Designs, LaSalle Photo Studio and Media Graphics. This year marks 10 years for Mitzi Designs.
As sole entrepreneur, her goal was to, and still is, develop advertising visuals, from producing initial concepts and creative ideas to successfully completing eye-catching images and innovative designs – one customer or company at a time.
As a commercial artist, Mitzi incorporated photography into her company. Her photographs are used for business promotional materials such as brochures – from business card size ads to poster designs. Mitzi has photographed all types of formal occasions, including galas, proms and weddings, sporting events, business portraits and family photography – in-studio, on-location and outdoors.
