Without the attitude or pretense.
Studio19 is a San Francisco-based, woman-owned, boutique graphic design firm. We love putting ink on paper, and we’re OCD about type and color. We consider ourselves offsite partners for our clients, offering the benefits of an internal design team without the overhead.
Born out of a merger of two design businesses, our firm is named after the South of Market loft where we first opened our doors in 2003 as studio19. Through it all, studio19 reflects owner Angie Barajas’ belief that great design is timeless and her Midwestern sensibilities to always do right by her clients. These beliefs have enabled us to weather the Bay Area’s infamous “boom and bust” cycle and evolve into a full-service firm that counts both large corporations and small neighborhood businesses as long-time clients.
WHAT WE DO
RIP information chaos.
We take words, numbers and images and organize them so that they can inform and inspire. While our focus is graphic design and branding for both print and digital, we’ve got a network of local resources to help with other needs such as copywriting, translation, print and fulfillment.
We craft the physical expressions of a brand, including the logo, color palette, typography, website, business card and letterhead.
Annual reports, brochures, booklets, flyers, catalogs, data sheets (print and digital).
From employee manuals to Powerpoint presentations, we’ll help you look good.
Depend on us to create signage and wayfaring systems that reinforce brand identity and contribute to positive user experiences.
Infographics & Charts
We make complicated concepts easy to understand, and beautiful to boot.
We design packaging that communicates and connects your brand with the consumer.
We’re adept at designing and producing print pieces for multiple languages, including languages that don’t use Latin characters. And we offer Spanish translation in-house.
Magazines, newsletters and books (print and digital).
We are well-versed in making digital publications ADA compliant and accessible.
HOW WE WORK
Our secret sauce.
Everyone at studio19 has hands-on responsibility for their projects. There are no layers, silos or divas. We partner with our clients to move quickly from concept to finished design.
The shortest distance between you and us is a straight line.
We think working directly with one another is the best way.
Your brand is our brand.
We treat every project with the same gusto and attention to detail as if it was our own brand.
Happy clients are important.
That’s why we’re accessible, responsive and good listeners.
Everyone is creative.
Creativity is a quality, not a title.
Everything goes better with some good food.
And a stiff drink.
