Hi. We are Rick & Colleen, two individuals who love all things design. Along with our semi-trusty mini dachshund, we maintain our design outpost in Portland, Oregon.

We work with creative, design-led partners who possess the courage to differentiate through design, to produce work that we are collectively proud of. Working together, or independently, we partner with individuals, brands, and agencies to collaboratively solve difficult challenges by generating intelligent print and digital experiences with a balance of clarity, functionality, and interaction at a high level of finish. Most importantly, we have a damn good time doing it.

Landers Miller Design Work at Play

Rick Landers

Rick Landers

Rick Landers earned his stripes working in print and packaging design studios in Philadelphia. The call of entrepreneurialism led him to earn his MFA in Design at the School of Visual Arts, when upon graduation he teamed with his logical business partner to build Landers Miller Design. Wielding simply his trusty circle template and a MacBook Pro, Rick can concept a book, bang out playful illustrations, and even organize a closet with great precision. In his free time Rick is an avid Flyers fan/Rangers heckler, runner of miles, and prefers the 6 a.m. dog + preschool walking shifts.

At the age of 8, Colleen was introduced to MacPaint on the Macintosh 128k, fell in love with combining words and pixels on happy interfaces, and it has been hard to pry her away since. From print to web to interaction and back around, Colleen has mixed her passions for design, reading, food, travel and sport into a work and study path that has led her through such adventures including a ’90s web design startup, magazine creative direction, a career-shifting MFA in Interaction Design, and a dream-turned-reality to design for the Food Network, HGTV, and Travel Channel. She is currently an experience design director at R/GA Portland for Nike accounts.
