Five questions with Paloma Schultz

Say hello to Paloma Schultz, our newest graphic designer! Paloma graduated with a B.F.A. in graphic design from the Savannah College of Art and Design in June, and found Treebird less than six months later. An (almost) native Savannahn, Paloma brings a Southern elegance, a youthful playfulness, and a serious appetite for learning anything and everything to our team.

You grew up and went to college in Savannah. What are the best and worst things about being a lifelong Savannahn?

  • The best thing is the landscape. If I ever got tired of the grid-like order of downtown, within 30 minutes I could be at the beach or in the countryside. The worst thing is being associated with Paula Deen. 

When and where do you do your best creative thinking?

  • First thing in the morning at the breakfast table. A clear mind after a giant cup of coffee is usually me at my most creative and productive. By the end of the day, after the caffeine has run out, I tend to be running on fumes. 

Music or quiet?

  • Music! I'm quite the chair dancer. Being a relatively fidgety person, sitting in the quiet doesn't allow me to get out my nervous energy.

Where do you get design inspiration from?

  • I am especially inspired by Louise Fili. Her work is gorgeous. Growing up in the South, surrounded by cotton fields and mason jars, has also influenced me. 

If you were a car, what type would you be?

  • Something quick and sporty, like a Porsche Carrera. I tend to talk too fast and make risky moves.
