Hey, I'm Olivia!

Before I launched Acton Circle, I spent 10 years honing my graphic design, web design, and UI/UX design skills working on marketing and product design teams. I know what it’s like being on teams where there aren’t enough resources (read: operating solo) and looking at a list of increasing project demands. But have no fear, I am here to help you.

I am passionate about supporting marketers within purpose-driven companies by telling compelling and captivating stories through branding and digital experiences.

Kind words from our happy clients!

Olivia asks good questions and is a good listener. The brand book is gorgeous and reflects her attention to detail. We've been able to get a steady flow of leads since the rebranding work.

Olivia is super responsive and understands our asks. She is a dream to work with! We were able to launch a new section of our website that was delayed because of hiccups from the previous we are able to engage on that portion of the site and have a lot of impact.

We didn't have a design resource at all and were struggling to keep up with demand of what we needed using basic templates in Canva. Olivia is quick, understands our business and concepts easily. She is also a pleasure to work with. We've grown our member base from 1,000 to 11,000 since working with Acton Circle.
