CW Designs The Map Chick Carol Sullivan.jpg

Carol Sullivan’s excitement for designing maps began at a young age, when she would navigate her family via the trusty road atlas. Her mother, a native of Scotland, would pack up the family and drive across the country exploring sites she only read about in books as a child. 

Carol is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh with a degree in graphic design. After graduation, Carol headed to Chicago where her pursuit for design continued. After being asked to create a map for a friend’s destination wedding, Carol realized her passion for helping couples design their perfect wedding day.

Her options have also expanded to include wedding day material like bottle labels, door hangers, free standing seating charts, and other specialty items. Corporate clients have also turned to Carol as well, including, Viacom and HBO. If you want it customized Carol is your designer.
