Knobloch Nelson Architects LLC & Schumann Studio LLC — Green-Centric Custom Design Solutions For Your Home & Business


“What is it like to work with your spouse?” is the question people often ask the partners of these two creative design studios. Jonathan Nelson and Leona Knobloch-Nelson are partners at the architectural and interior design studio, Knobloch Nelson Architects. Ben and Daria Schumann are partners at Schumann Studio, a graphic design and large-format, Giclée print studio. The answer is simple for all four: “It’s natural. It takes someone with similar passions and values to be understood and happy in life — to create with, to have fun with.” Communication is another secret to their success, and it benefits their colleagues and clients alike. Both couples are nature lovers and exercise sustainable initiatives, which explains their connection; along with the fact that design and art go hand in hand. Their studios’ combined talents offer a cohesive solution for beautifying a variety of environments.

Though Jon and Leona had worked together at separate firms in the past, they decided to join forces and establish their own business in 2010. The firm provides full service architectural and interior design services along with design solutions for everyday life. One of their primary desires is to offer healthy environments focused upon the individual needs of their clients.

Jon offers his extensive experience in architecture based on his 25+ years in the profession. Leona not only brings her 20 years of experience to the table, but also her dedication to the profession. This is evident in her stance on educating emerging professionals. She currently serves as chair of the School of Art & Design and chair of the interior design department at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee. The duo have worked on a variety of project types, including medical, eldercare, libraries, educational, corporate and residential.

However, they feel their most important endeavors revolve around creative family activities involving their two daughters. Their family is continuously designing art pieces or creating new games/products.

Schumann Studio LLC

Schumann Studio’s mission is to facilitate your creative vision and needs. Whether professional photos or candids, your images are enhanced with custom editing and proofing to ensure the best print presentation possible.

The studio’s own state-of-the-art, 12-ink Canon digital printer is complemented by quality fine art papers and canvases, including environmentally conscious options, most rated to last up to 75 years. Should the image suffer a visible loss in vibrance, it will be reprinted at no cost.

Find the most attractive image display for your taste and budget within the studio’s assorted formats: gallery-wraps (photo-canvases), rolled or mounted posters, plus mats and mouldings for traditional framing.

Schumann Studio also specializes in small business promotional tools, including branding as well as personal or corporate event invitations and announcements.
