Elizabeth A. Bourne
Senior Graphic Designer | email
Litigation Graphics Director Elizabeth Bourne brings more than 20 years of experience in design and presentation to bear in her efforts to enhance the strength of a trial team’s message. She joined the firm in 2000.
Her expertise and graphics creativity is focused on making complex litigation concepts more understandable and meaningful to juries, mediators, and judges. She translates large volumes of case documents and facts into more meaningful, simple, and clear, but powerful persuasive messages. Partnering with the trial team and the Tsongas team of consultants, these graphics are used for opening and closing statements, testimony, arbitration and mediation, bench trials, Markman hearings, and exhibits for expert testimony.
As a protege of renowned graphic designer Herb Lubalin, Bourne was the youngest art director admitted to the prestigious New York Art Directors Club. Her career began in publishing and evolved into multi-media presentation and the design and implementation of training programs for the Big Six accounting firms in Canada.
Following her return to the United States, she honed her skills in computer animation design, multi-media technology, and communication graphics during her tenure with several leading Northwest multi-media studios. In 1985 she founded Slidepro, Inc., specializing in computer graphics and presentations for high profile clients such as Intel, Microsoft, Fujitsu, Standard Insurance, Freightliner, US Bank, Weiden & Kennedy, Mercedes-Benz, Tektronix, Floating Point Systems, Mentor Graphics and NASA.
Bourne has been a member of the board of directors of the Multi-Image Producers Association, a PhotoShop and PowerPoint consultant for the Mac Users Group of Oregon and has taught seminars and classes in visual development and presentation. She has won awards in design and illustration from Adobe and Corel corporations and has exhibited nationally and internationally. She is a member of the Demonstrative Exhibit Specialists Association.
