“Form follows function – that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.”
— Frank Lloyd Wright
Marie Doty is a graphic designer living in Knoxville TN. After many years in Los Angeles Marie and her husband decided they needed a change of scenery. In 2016 they made the move to the Smoky Mountains with their two sons and pug dog.
She strives to communicate visually with beauty and symmetry. All design must communicate the message clearly to the onlooker.
Marie graduated with honors from Michigan State University and briefly studied at the University of London Birkbeck.
She has an affinity for classic 20th century styles and is often sought out for this niche. You’ll often find her digging through old design magazines from the 1950s and early ’60s. She is known mostly for graphic design but has crafted over 100 websites.
With her design company, The Dapper Tiger she worked with numerous clients including: NationBuilder, LinkedIN, TEDx Michigan Avenue, Columbia University, Lionsgate Entertainment, Distinctive Assets (Academy Awards Gift Bags), Mel & Rose, Company of Angels, and Luxor Las Vegas just to name a few. She has also worked with attorneys, small businesses, start-ups, artists, and regular old folk.
