We’re here to exceed expectations.

Big ideas, boutique service

One team to meet all of your creative needs.

Design in Mind is a creative agency located in the heart of Silicon Valley. Founded in 2002, we started as a one-woman venture and have grown into a competitive agency built on referrals and relationships. Today, our work spans the globe and we’re grateful to serve clients that put our work at the forefront of change.

We work with nonprofits and budding startups to Fortune 500 companies, and continue to tap into new industries each year. Across the board, our mission is simple: to help our clients succeed.

We tailor our approach to meet your needs, but always follow these three rules for success:
Always listen.

It’s our priority to understand your goals and to ask the questions necessary to share your vision. We don’t just take on projects, we form partnerships, and believe successful initiatives are always rooted in good communication.

Never skimp on quality.

We are perfectionists that believe in process, collaboration, and utilizing the unique talents of each member of our team. We start with brainstorms, scrutinize every detail in review, and never let anything out the door we’re not proud to claim as our own.

Stay flexible.

With every project, we expect curveballs. Whether it’s about deadlines, budget, a shift in priorities or scope, we’ll make it work. We understand every project hits its snags, and will approach with empathy to help you work through them.

We're better together.

Each member of our team brings something unique to the table, but our collective talents are our greatest asset.
