Place & Page
is a community-centered graphic design studio in 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, to create a more inclusive and equitable city. Place and page are two media that form the intersection of this work.
