Graphic artist, analytic creative thinker.

White Dog Design

Louise Kennedy received her B.F.A. in Graphic Design in the early 80s, and then went on to graduate school at Harvard University in the 90s. Since then she has worked as an artist and gallerist and managed a number of businesses and small companies, including eight years as associate director of the Saguaro Seminar: Civic Engagement in America at the Kennedy School of Government with political scientist Robert D. Putnam of Bowling Alone fame. Responsible for multimillion-dollar budgets, marketing, research, fundraising activities, Louise has developed a sound understanding of business principles, sales, marketing and image building in both the private and not-for-profit sectors. Louise’s primary area of expertise is her ability to quickly understand a client’s industry and then to develop custom graphic, web, and photographic solutions to reach a targeted audience. She creates relationships with her clients and guides them through the website design process to create an Internet presence which yields results. Louise is known for her ability to network and bring people together around a project, her loyalty, intuition and her straightforwardness.

Current Projects:
Louise is working with clients to create a visual language for their graphic projects. Improving her photography is an on-going passion. As a member of the Board of Directors for the Foundation for Manatee Community College, she is the chair of the Art in Public Places program, a new multi-year initiative to bring world-class art works to MCC, and to create programs around the pieces.

Insights into Louise:

Louise loves shoes, marmite (she's English), and has a curious fascinatiion with construction cranes. She is a computer geek. She lives with her husband Parker Converse II, maker of museum quality rocking chairs, and their senior (white) dog, Oscar.
