Meet the sdg leadership

Lisa St. John

Works primarily with product development, web design, graphic design, content generation, editing, and marketing. A strategic communications professional with more than 20 years of continuous advancement across a variety of sectors, Lisa has established a record of producing engaging, invigorating and enduring messages that appeal to broad audiences. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a Bachelor of Arts degree, she started as a communications director for an arts agency serving people with disabilities. As her design, writing and marketing skills grew; she chose to start an independent design firm, which she successfully ran until relocating to upstate New York. Since arriving in New York, she has worked for the Museum of the Earth and Cornell University and the high pace of design, events, website management, writing and editing is a challenge she enjoys. She has organized events featuring Nobel Prize recipients, invigorated brands, managed large teams, raised multimillion dollar endowments, developed, marketed and licensed retail and research only products.

Pete St. John

Began his career in Theatrical Production Design and in 2001, enrolled in the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Industrial Design MFA program, which launched his focus in exhibit design, with a concentration on museum, tradeshow and retail interiors. He has managed a multimillion dollar permanent exhibit space, temporary exhibit spaces, created engaging exhibits for National Parks and Monuments, Universities, the Department of Defense and museums throughout the U.S. His 3d visualization skills enable him to provide accurate and artistic sketches, working models, floor plans, and final renderings for development and marketing needs. Concurrently, his production experience allows him to fabricate what he designs as he’s extremely familiar with the construction process. Additionally, he’s been employed as a lecturer by local universities including RIT, Syracuse University and Cornell University where his product design class will be the first of its kind for Cornell’s Department of Design and Environmental Analysis, incorporating industrial design standards with entrepreneurial practices.

At SDG, we’ve built a company ethos that prizes, above all, two things: client relationships and creativity. With us, you speak directly with your designer and account executive - no run around, no extra phone calls, just direct and clear communication. Also, we keep project teams small- usually only a handful of leaders all working to maximize your budget which in turn, expands possibilities.

SDG has taken the time to understand my business and market. This allows them to take a nascent idea of mine and turn it into a full fledged marketing campaign with multi-media features. St. John Design Group can handle any size project of our business from product brochures, through website design, and full-on trade show booth.
