Criscola Design



Sol Lewitt put it simply: “Most ideas that are successful are ludicrously simple.”

We think so too. We are critical-thinkers and problem-solvers using common-sense, intelligence, passion, and commitment to design media, products, and space.




our work

We are a small, woman-owned studio expert in four dimensions—develop, design, digitize, deliver. We are collaborators, facilitators, managers, and instructors.

Our work can be seen in professional, nonprofit, and industrial sectors like human rights, health care, government, education, science and technology, publishing, law, and arts and culture.




our purpose

Our interest is to create work that mirrors the ideals, ethics, and passion of our client work.

Our experience includes identity, branding and promotional materials; printed matter like books, publications, and posters; and screen, interactive, and time-based projects such as websites, exhibitions, and installations. And we love what we do.




We work with amazing people on extraordinary projects.
