Sr. Graphic Designer
Sysouk Khambounmy has been a senior designer at Printing Services since 1998. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota, holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Design Communications.
When combined with his time as a young student designer at the U, Sysouk boasts nearly two decades of experience working with colleges and departments at the University. This extensive experience has given him a thorough understanding of the University of Minnesota and the unique challenges involved in clearly communicating the University’s core messages. Working under difficult constraints within the University system, Sysouk has been highly successful at combining a fresh, creative outlook with a solid understanding of design as the medium for clearly communicating an intended message.
Sysouk has been the creative visual force behind the Office of Admissions’ comprehensive, award-winning identity—a uniquely University branded campaign that has successfully evolved over time. He has also continued his work on Parking and Transportation Services’ Metropass/U-Pass marketing campaign, collaborated with the College of Science & Engineering on numerous pieces, including ongoing design of their alumni magazine, Inventing Tomorrow, and produced effective marketing collateral for Continuing Professional Development (formerly Continuing Medical Education), the Office of Equity & Diversity, and UROC, among many others.

Julie Longo brings years of higher education creative experience to the University of Minnesota. She spent 12 years designing corn manuals and posters for bad Hawkeye football teams at the University of Iowa before realizing the error of her ways and heading north to Minnesota.

Julie left Printing Services in 2008 to get her MFA in graphic design at the University of Minnesota. Over the next few years, she taught design at The Art Institutes Minneapolis, Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD), the University of Minnesota, and Augsburg College. In 2015, Julie was once again drawn to the thrill of the fast-paced higher education design world, returning to Printing Services to work with departments throughout the University. In addition to her role at Printing Services, Julie continues to teach graphic design at Augsburg College.
Laura moved to the great state of Minnesota in early 2018 to join the Printing Services team. Prior to her move, she worked as a communications professional for more than 12 years at the University of Missouri where she created print and digital content for housing, recreation, student life, admissions, operations, sustainability, parking and transportation and more. Now, she is excited to bring her years of experience to the University of Minnesota.
A consummate strategic thinker, Laura excels at audience-based content and design that will evoke emotion and response. She thrives on perfectly laid-out publications, pixel-perfect web designs and the heady smell of fresh ink.
Paul Schwarzkopf joined the Printing Services team as a Communications Specialist in 2016. Prior to his work at the University, he managed non-profit communications for more than seven years. He has led graphic design, web management and communication/marketing efforts for organizations such as Can Do Canines, The National Scholastic Press Association and Milwaukee Riverkeeper. Paul’s work on various rebranding and website redevelopment projects have improved organizational credibility and resulted in an exponential growth in fundraising.
Paul holds a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and in a former life worked as a producer for radio and television news. In his free-time, Paul utilizes vintage synthesizers and drum machines to compose electronic music. He hopes to one day conquer the world—electronically.
