Tiny Bold Creative strives to pair meaningful messages with beautiful design, helping launch or expand small businesses in a variety of industries.

After working for medium-sized marketing studios and enormous advertising agencies, it was time to go back to basics: working with the small, passionate businesses who truly appreciate graphic design’s impact. Whether thoughtfully creating a logo to get your business off the ground running, or building up an existing look and feel to help you express your work more clearly, we believe in the importance of collaborating with clients, and aim to make the process as fun and exciting as the end results.


From small businesses looking to get their start, to established companies in need of a fresh perspective, Tiny Bold brings passion and excitement to building and expanding your brand.

Tiny Bold Creative is the one-woman studio of Alison Sustarich. While Alison handles most work directly, there are occasionally projects that need a little more love. As you’ll come to realize, Alison is a friendly gal, and from these friendships she has developed a network of talented colleagues – from photographers and copywriters, to developers and printers – who are ready to come together to make your brand shine.

Tiny Bold Creative is also proud to be a part of the fun collaborative that is Step Brightly Creative Group, providing graphic design for their wonderful clients.

826CHI is a non-profit located in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago, providing free tutoring for students around the city, publishing their writing, and inspiring kids (and adults) of all ages. Alison volunteers her time to 826 by organizing fundraisers, drawing for kids at said fundraisers, and designing anything they may need!


Eyes and hands can only stay occupied at a computer for so long. Alison is slowly learning the ways around wood craftsmanship, building tabletops and small projects that spark interest. And since she is related to her teacher, this is also the biggest test of father-daughter patience a girl could go through.
