Who is that gorgeous specimen? That's me. Hello, my name is Ross Moody and I am currently the one man operation behind 55 Hi's.
What is 55 Hi's? 55 Hi's (Fifty-Five Highz) began in 2010 as a simple means of spreading inspiring quotes and quirky ideas. It has since spiraled out of control—in the best way possible—into an online greetings collective, of sorts. A destination for graphic goodness, tasteful typography, and artful alliteration. At 55 Hi's, sincere life lessons are laid delicately onto French paper where they frolic joyfully, side-by-side with cards that become shot glasses. Why? Because both of those things will make you smile, and smiling is a nice thing. Design. Inspire. Smile.
Who are you? Well, like I said My name is Ross. I'm a Taurus and I like fun facts in organized bullets. Like this:
Almost 20 years ago, with a degree in Communication Design from Kutztown University, Deborah headed to New York City to launch a career in the luxury goods industry. After working for several years at a midtown design
studio, she became an Art Director at Ralph Lauren Fragrances, and then the Creative Director at Parfum Givenchy, part of the LVMH luxury goods group.
Ultimately wanting to make a local impact through good design, Deborah returned to her hometown of Lancaster in 1999 to start her own studio, Moxie House. With the mission, 'Design for Good,' Deborah and her Moxie House team brought fresh, unexpected, effective communication to small and mid-sized businesses in her community.
Through this work, Deborah recognized the need for a unified marketing piece that celebrated Lancaster's rapidly evolving downtown—and the Fig® communications package was born. Under Deborah's creative direction, Fig®, a hyper-local print, web and social media package, has offered both voice and vision for the City of Lancaster's revitalization over the past seven years. (In addition, Deborah and her team at Moxie House have packaged Fig® for other communities, expanding two years ago into Media and West Chester, Pennsylvania.)
Passionate about community, Deborah injects her work with an unabashedly positive voice that resonates with readers and clients alike. Making a home in Lancaster with her husband and three children, Deborah's career path has come full circle to a place of purpose and invigorating professional challenge that keep life interesting in the hometown she loves.
