Schreiner alumnus wins Grammy for design work Shauna and Sarah Dodds with Grammy Award

Shauna Dodds, a 2002 SU graduate, and her sister, Sarah, founded Backstage Design Studio in 2004 in Austin and concentrated their efforts on design for the Texas Music Industry.

This year, the Dodds’ design of Reckless Kelly’s “Long Night Moon” album won a Grammy for Best Recording Package. The packaging features glow-in-the-dark ink, hidden images and messages and secret codes.

“Sarah and I are still trying to wrap our heads around this turn of events,” Dodds said. “We definitely didn't think we could possibly win. How could we? We were up against some of the biggest names in music. Jay Z, alone, was nominated for nine Grammys this year. For all intents and purposes, we shouldn't have won. So, the fact that The Recording Academy has honored with this award is simply beyond belief.”

Last year, the Dodds sisters were nominated for their work on Reckless Kelly’s “Good Luck & True Love.” Both albums are also the first two records on Reckless Kelly’s own label, No Big Deal Records.
