"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."

purpose-driven marketers, we have your back!

Is your backlog of design projects keeping you from making an impact?

As a growing business, it can be tough to turn your big vision for changing the world into inspirational or educational content and digital experiences. You’re not at the point where you’re ready to hire a full-time, in-house designer, but you feel the overwhelm creeping in as you review the steady flow of design requests each week.

We are here to bridge the gap. Acton Circle is your dedicated design agency for graphic design and web design that resonates and motivates.

What can we help you accomplish today?

You’ve got big plans and even bigger dreams. It’s time we made them happen.

I need to build a stronger connection between our people and our mission

Take me to the case studies

This could be you!

We designed marketing materials that wowed Bexa's customers, clients, and employees.

Think about the last time you input your credit card information into a form on a sketchy-looking website...that's right you didn't (at least I hope not)

Yes, it's true, good design DOES build trust.

Does your website and marketing materials help you cultivate trustworthy relationships with your beneficiaries, donors, and supporters?

Our client, Bexa, walked away with marketing materials that enabled them to launch a new division of their company. Their newly branded materials wowed their customers, clients, and employees. Now they can confidently market their services to underserved communities who need them most.

What if there was a way you could partner with a designer to build a trustworthy brand that you are proud of?

There are tons of great designers out there, but maybe you don't know where to find them or don't have the time, or patience, to manage someone else.

If this is you, you’re in the right place! My name is Olivia and I am the founder of Acton Circle where we focus on the details, build trustworthy brands, and impress your audiences.

Here at Acton Circle, we understand you're not a designer; and fortunately, you don't need to be one when working with us. We are committed to delivering high-quality design and a seamless creative process.

We learn about your mission/audience, find ways to easily collaborate, and deliver designs within days.

Great to work with and incredibly efficient. Excellent outcome and design for us that will stay with the brand for a long time to come. Included great support. Also very impressed by their ability to do conceptual mock-ups without the need for an expensive print. A+

"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 developer...so we are able to engage on that portion of the site and have a lot of impact."
