Denise Sutherland

I have a degree in graphic design, and have been running Sutherland Studios since December 1997. I started out with just two hats — graphic and web design — but over the years I've added puzzle writer, author, editor and book indexer to my hat stand.

I am on 'sabbatical' at the moment, and not accepting new clients or projects.

Over the years I have had a regular ABC radio segment about cryptic crosswords, invented a new puzzle, been a publications editor, written the words for websites, designed logos, brochures and websites, indexed books, self-published seven books, written cryptic crosswords, been a website manager and developer for a science history group, written four books in the For Dummies series, and even worked as a lab assistant in plant genetics (I also studied science at the ANU), back in my dim distant past.

10 things about me

  1. I'm a minimalist, and am always seeking to simplify my life.
  2. I love dogs, and am Puppeh Mum to two chihuahuas. (Oh yeah, and mum to two humans as well.)
  3. I hate the smell of lavender. Ugh. Stink weed.
  4. My husband is an astrophysicist.
  5. I used to play the violin and be in an orchestra.
  6. I'm not allowed to run or jump. Woo! (Because of my artificial hip.)
  7. I'm not a big fan of movies. But I am trying to like them more.
  8. My favourite books to read are murder mysteries and non-fiction.
  9. My musical taste is very eclectic: from Vivaldi, Schubert and Phillip Glass, to Nine Inch Nails, Muse, deadmau5, Radiohead, Massive Attack and Parov Stelar.
  10. I have 4 mm (6 gauge) ear piercings, so I can wear my son's glass jewellery.
