Place & Page
is a community-centered graphic design studio based in Downtown Los Angeles that works with local organizations and public agencies on branding, events, signage, publications, illustrations, design interventions, community outreach, and more. We believe design has the power to change the way people navigate and interact with their communities and to create a more inclusive and equitable city. Place and page are two media that form the intersection of this work.
