Shauna Dodds Sarah Dodds / Bio Photo
Creatively inclined sisters, Shauna and Sarah Dodds, joined forces in 2004 to form Backstage Design Studio. Concentrating their early efforts on design for the Texas Music Industry, they’ve grown their business to cross all genres of design for all manner of business, and have developed a formidable portfolio to rival that of veteran design groups.

The team has recently been honored with the Best Recording Package GRAMMY for Reckless Kelly’s Long Night Moon. This was their second GRAMMY Nomination, with the first being for Reckless Kelly’s Good Luck & True Love just two years ago in 2012. The design also earned the duo a Lone Star Music Award, 2 Gold ADDYS (Austin and District 10) and a spot in the 2nd Annual AIGA Texas Show.
