Allyson J. South

Allyson South art directs her life. She brings her creativity and seasoned eye to everything she does – from designing one-of-a-kind photo books for her clients, to painting, cooking, home decorating, shopping for gifts, gardening, planning travel, and photography. Her experience in the world of advertising as a senior art director has given her a multitude of practical skills as well. She has worked with Fortune 500 companies, managed photo shoots on location, created memorable print and interactive work, and can even brainstorm under pressure. But after almost 20 years with her nose to the grindstone, Allyson craved a more meaningful way to express her creativity.

In 2010, she launched Allyson South Designs – a photo book design business that strives to help both individuals and businesses tell their unique stories with elegantly designed, high-quality coffee table books. Culling through hundreds of photos at a time can be a daunting task, but as an accomplished art director and storyteller, Allyson is uniquely qualified to help her clients distill infinite possibilities into a single compelling visual narrative. She is an adept listener and provides her clients with a high level of personal service. Blending her personal passions for print design, books and photography into a business has allowed Allyson to extend her creativity into doing something she loves.
