We believe that when done right, great design can motivate anyone to do good and live a fuller life.

Meet the Founder + Creative Director

Acton Circle founder, Olivia Wheeler, has always been the go-to gal for all things graphic, web, and UI/UX design. After 12 years of contributing to and leading design teams across the San Francisco Bay Area, she founded Acton Circle as a way of amplifying social good.

From each experience to the next, Olivia has always carried an undeniable truth with her: there's power in visual storytelling.

Her expertise in brand strategy and graphic design power Acton Circle to get to the heart of each brand they work with and use design to tell a story that resonates in the hearts and minds of customers.

I have always known that I was put on this earth to use my gifts to help others. The namesake of my studio, Acton Circle, was the location of my grandparents’ house. Their home was a place where my faith and creativity began. I am part of their legacy. I can’t wait to help you build yours.

Nonprofit Design Client Case Studies

"We didn't have a design resource at all and struggled to keep up with the 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."

Jamie Gatto
Former Head of Marketing

"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."
