What our clients have to say

Kind words from our happy clients!

Working in partnership with Acton Circle has been a wonderful experience. Olivia and the team are extremely talented and have crafted amazing collateral for my organization, East Bay Community Foundation. Working with them has been a smooth process from initial project intake to final design delivery. One highlight of working with Acton Circle is their excellent facilitation of strategy meetings. They thoroughly capture all the information needed and make translating project needs into a design look like magic.

Michele Johnson
Marketing & Communications Project Associate
East Bay Community Foundation

"We are thrilled with the large mural created by the team at Acton for our charter school, Making Waves Academy! It beautifully expresses who we are and what we value. We’ve been through several art development processes for our campus, and this was one of the most rewarding— our feedback was heard and incorporated after each iteration, making us feel like a true partner in the process. This is deeply important for a school community, and we are incredibly grateful to them."

Alicia Klein
Board President
Making Waves Academy

"Olivia is extremely bright and had incredible ideas and insights for our project. Team was very responsive and easy to work with."

Here’s how companies like yours are doing more with Acton Circle

Do you have needs for more in-depth deliverables – like reports, eBooks, and detailed guides?

Florida Policy Institute needed ongoing help with their website and a comprehensive professional report to communicate their latest research. We worked with them for several months to meet their design needs both big and small!

Wish you had someone to create professional, branded Google slide decks and presentations for you instead of wasting hours trying to cobble something together?

Acton Circle and the National Writing Project (NWP) enjoy an ongoing partnership. With NWP, we’ve designed over 20 effective, engaging presentations for their writing workshops and created a custom template for their team.

Tired of using random clip art illustrations and spending hours searching for images to use on social media? 

We worked with Ureeka to create custom, on-brand social media graphics to create a cohesive presence, educate their audience, and share exciting news with their supporters.

Got questions? Great news. We’ve got answers!

How does the design subscription work?


Each month, we hold a strategy meeting to collaboratively load up your design queue. You can make adjustments to your design queue throughout the month, and we’ll keep working through it 1-2 projects at a time.

Is there a guarantee on how many hours/designs per month I will get?


We have found that on average our subscription clients complete around 3-6 projects per month. Since different projects take varying amounts of time, there’s no guarantee on the number of designs you’ll get each month. For example, a social post or blog graphic takes far less time than a 10-slide presentation. What we do guarantee, though, is that we will work on your projects daily for as long as you keep adding projects to your design queue.

Who is this design subscription best for?


Organizations that get the most out of this subscription are those who have a steady stream of design needs in their business that they’ve been ready (like yesterday) to get the right person to work on. If you only have a design need pop up once in a blue moon, this would not be the right solution for you. 

Do you offer one-time projects instead of a design subscription?


Our one-time project offerings include our annual report package.

Why shouldn’t I just hire a full-time designer?


Well, you have to manage them and as a non-designer that's challenging to do. Additionally, they still might not be an expert in all the different facets of design you need to bring your brand to life. When you have an Acton Circle subscription, you’ll have a core team of a senior-level designer and project manager as well other design partners you can tap into when needed. We will get to know your brand inside out and collaboratively cross your projects over the finish line.
