Hey there, I'm Robyn, owner and designer at Stella Sutton Design. I bet you're thinking 'wait, so your name isn't Stella?' Well funny you should ask. When I made the decision to leave Corporate America in 2019 to pursue design full-time, it felt like a life-changing decision. So what better way to honor that decision than naming the company after something else that changed my life, my two daughters Stella and Sutton. Cheesy? Maybe. A reminder that keeps me inspired daily? Absolutely.
So here's the nitty-gritty. I take immense pride in the work I produce and how I serve my clients. This job isn't your traditional 9-5 (cue Dolly), it's 'find the time to get it done'. The good news is I work from an office I built on our farm, so I'm ALWAYS here.
You're in the livestock biz? Good, me too. My husband Brad, along with our daughters Stella and Sutton, own and operate Amthauer Club Lambs. Looking for someone who understands how to market in the show livestock industry? Well I'm your gal. It's our passion, so I get how important it is to you as well.
Not in the livestock biz? Well fret not, I serve a number of clients in as wide array of businesses as you can imagine.

Design Aesthetic: I am like a chameleon when it comes to design. I like to change and adapt based on trends, the client, & where ever by creative brain takes me!

MEET THE TEAM
Website Design + Updates, Designer
WEBSITE DESIGN & UPDATING, VARIOUS DESIGN TASKS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA & PRINT, BRINGS AVERAGE TEAM AGE DOWN SLIGHTLY
Kate is the OG here at Stella Sutton Design. She was team SSD before it even existed. She’s been the nanny, grown up got a big kid job, and still has found time to work for me part-time. Kate is always there in the clutch, quick to get a task knocked out and always with a smile on her face. She has great design taste and an even better attitude. We would be lost without Kate on our team and in our lives!

Design Aesthetic: I am a neutral gal at heart! I love working with warm, neutral color palettes - adding pops of gold every time I can! I'd say my design style would be a combo of minimalist, bohemian, and girly styles.
Fav Food: There is nothing better than street tacos paired with a spicy margarita!
Fav Cocktail: Prosecco or a good ole High Noon
Hobbies: If I'm not working my full-time or numerous part-time jobs (most who know me know I love to work) I am typically spending time with friends & family, out on a walk with my goldendoodle Quinn, or probably out and about getting a coffee. LOL
Vacation Spot: Really anywhere warm on the beach!
College(s)/Degree: Iowa State University, Bachelor of Science in Marketing
Full time job: Full-time I work as a Web Marketer for VGM Forbin, primarily handling all things social media for our financial clients. On top of my full-time job, and working part-time for Stella Sutton Design, I also coordinate social content and website for 319 Decor + Design. If I am not on my laptop, chances are you can find me behind the bar at Oakwood Golf Course from time to time. I'm a busy gal and I love every second of it!
DESIGN TASKS IN THE SPACES OF SOCIAL MEDIA & PRINT, HELPS ROBYN LEVEL-UP INTELLECTUALLY (CHELSEA’S SMART YA’LL)
Chelsea joined us as a part-time designer in the summer of 2022. Her quick-to-learn personality, ability to adapt and pivot, and overall intelligent thinking has brought such benefit to Stella Sutton Design. Although Chelsea is new to design, her impeccable taste and creative eye has already been a great asset here. We can’t wait to watch Chelsea’s design abilities grow even more!

Design Aesthetic: I love the juxtaposition of contrasting design elements. I am very drawn to monochromatic modern/industrial design, but I think it's best when paired with rustic, western, vintage, or vibrantly colored pieces!
Fav Food: There is nothing better than a great steak, but I am also a sucker for a great sushi menu. The best is when you can get both in the same place!
Fav Cocktail: Dirty Martini
Hobbies: I love to spend time outside in my garden, my husband Dylan and I have two AAU Basketball programs: Wheat State Elite & Southwest Elite, and one of my favorite hobbies is hanging out with our pets and watching movies or binge watching TV shows!
Vacation Spot: Anywhere with good food and good views. I love going to new places!
