discover :: design :: deliver

It’s my earnest endeavor that we work together to create a brand, visual or website that illustrates how you feel about your brand on the inside to the world on the outside.

The essence of your business is your brand, & it’s best if it’s decided by you & not a marketing agency. The Workshop we offer walks you through the elements of branding – lets you decide how you want to present yourself, your company.



Visual Design

Let’s make postcards, folio covers, booklets, ads, rack cards. Your collateral should consistently reflect your brand & your message. Same look & feel, same voice.



More visual design, this time in capturing a nuance, an expression, a live action – something for the viewer to experience. Something that shows the essence of your brand. We should work together on this – your ideas, my talent.


Web Design

Open, responsive, interactive. The marketing that is always on, always reaching out. Our web design projects incorporate your brand & make your business sing its song to the marketplace.


About Your Designer

Grace Studio started in 2003 as a tiny photography venture – it felt like coming home, after being in the high-tech sector. One thing seeing both sides did was to make me crave a good combo of business & the creative. When I take on a project, I delve into my client’s business to understand what their challenges are, & what they need from design to make their business better, their brand stronger.  A stickler for branding, this thread weaves its way through all my client-facing work: print design, identity, photography, web design.IMG_6065

I still enjoy shooting – vineyards, farms & people – & I work it into my projects whenever possible. A visual is worth a thousand first impressions & I’m happy to work with you to get that impression just right.

I’m most often found sketching or tapping on a laptop, though, designing just the right look & feel within that small screen to give the world a true sense of your brand, your business essence.

Off the grid, I enjoy shooting stills for indie films, traveling whenever possible & playing in water in any form: snow, lake, ocean.

Street cred: I earned my degree in Telecommunications Management from Marylhurst University & hold certificates in Digital Marketing Strategy and Interactive Media Production from Portland State University. {That means I know both media design & how it works on the www – another combination of business & creative.}
