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

Katie is the CEO, Founder, and Creative Director of Design in Mind. She guides our company vision, develops workplace culture, forms client relationships, and oversees crucial creative output.
After starting her design career at a Fortune 500 company, it wasn’t long before Katie broke out as an entrepreneur. She grew Design In Mind from a sole proprietorship to a competitive agency, and though she’s now proud to share responsibilities with a hand-picked team, she still oversees critical aspects of the creative process. Above all, Katie is driven by her belief that good design is a powerful tool for business—playing a key role in functionality, brand recognition, and the communication of complex ideas. She is humbled to help clients find creative solutions and add value through design, day in and day out.

As a senior designer, Raymond has led award-winning work in logo and event design, and few projects leave our doors without his stamp of approval. He’s “OCD in a good way” and reviews every piece down to the last detail. In his own design work, he always looks for the wow-factor and prides himself on his innate talent in developing unique brands. When he’s not on the clock, Raymond enjoys hanging out with his wife and baby, watching “The Office,” or catching up on sports.

Jady joined our team as an intern while earning her BFA from California College of the Arts, and her thoughtful work quickly made her an asset to the team.
