About Me

DesignOlah provides professional graphic design services in many areas of visual communication. My creative services include the design, implementation, and launch of multi-device websites and online advertising. Plus branding design, including logo and identity packages, and printed publications, brochures, posters, postcards, and more. Based in San Jose, CA, I serve clients in the San Francisco Bay Area, all over Northern California, and beyond.


Graphic design is more than simply making your promotional materials look nice. It is about effectively communicating with your audience in a unique and refreshing way. I can help you come up with solutions that are user-friendly, smart and captivating, as well as cost-effective for you.

What sets DesignOlah apart

I believe in providing design work that is exceptionally high-quality and also affordable, particularly for nonprofits. A large percentage of my clients are schools, churches, and nonprofit organizations working to improve our world on both a local and global scale. It is an important and necessary part of your outreach to have attractive and accessible communication materials. In order to bring these professional services to nonprofits, I provide you with reduced rates and can further customize the design process to stay within a tight budget. Several of my clients are also start-up companies, small businesses, musicians, and artists, all of whom enjoy high-end, professional, and striking designs at a cost you can afford.

I strive to provide the kind of personal attention to my clients that is lacking from many online design companies. I believe in communicating directly with my clients, keeping you up-to-date and informed of the status of your projects, meeting face-to-face when possible, and knowing exactly what you want your design pieces to say about you. The end result will not be a template or cookie-cutter design, but instead a refreshing and one-of-a-kind design that reflects you and your company or organization.
