Dianne Saumenig

Senior Designer

Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Dianne moved to West Michigan and joined Galapagos as Senior Designer in January 2019. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication Design from Stevenson University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. Dianne brings a love for all-things-design to everything she does.

 With more than a decade of professional creative experience in a variety of industries, Dianne has worn many hats, which has allowed her to develop a knack for quick observation and analysis—both of which intimately inform her creative process and ultimately the production of engaging solutions.

 At Galapagos, Dianne can be found crafting holistic experiences by putting her visual and strategic expertise to use in helping clients see their vision through to its full potential. She believes that research is the heart and soul of successful communication and employs an empathetic approach to understand the core of the message, needs of the client and the perspective of the end-user, for whom she is a daily advocate. 

 When not painstakingly kerning letters for fun (you might need to ask her what that means!), Dianne can be found in yoga class, buying vinyl records and listening to music, or buying treats for her cat, Olive.
