2014 has brought big things for us at Richardson Design, including our 20th Anniversary of Business. Check out our article below featured on

“I’m still my own boss and am still doing what I love to do.” So says Scott Richardson, a Cleveland Institute of Art graduate who launched Richardson Design in January 1994, just a couple years out of art school.

In a note to clients, he wrote, “I initially had dreams of just being my own boss and doing what I love to do. So I set up my drafting board in the spare bedroom of my house and began drawing and rendering with the markers I had left from my college days. My initial marketing was done through printed post cards which were mass mailed to targeted prospects.”

Marketing today is done through e-newsletters and social media, and the firm’s design process “has evolved to include the latest computer modeling and rendering technologies,” he wrote.

Richardson Design now has an eight-person team, and it occupies a 3,000-square-foot studio at 2570 Superior Ave.

The firm’s work includes retail, corporate interiors, exhibitions and showrooms, and restaurants. In the last category, it has done the design work for Michael Symon’s B Spot chain, Great Lakes Brewing Co. and the renovated food area at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
