We're a full service brand design studio based in sunny Southern California.


Located in sunny Southern California, Poised Avenue Design Studio takes inspiration from the eclectic coast to create one-of-a-kind brand identities for our clients. Using strategic, psychology-driven techniques, our clients walk away with brand clarity and a brand identity that yields only success.

We use strategy to build your brand.

what we do

Our foundation is in brand psychology — it's the basis for all of our brand projects. We believe that brand visuals rooted in strategy yield the most success. That's why we make it our goal to work with our clients to get to the root of their business, help them discover their brand strategy, and build supporting visuals they can use to create brand recognition and trust within their ideal audience. 

Amanda is a die-hard creative and entrepreneur and comes from a long line of creatives and entrepreneurs. Growing up, her favorite class was after-school art where she learned fine art and sketching techniques. After high school, she began working for her dad in graphic design and print, where she learned how to run vinyl machines and large-format printers. After college, she was promoted to graphic designer and head of digital marketing. She has since helped her dad launch a brand new online retail business before launching her own brand design studio, Poised Avenue Design Studio.

She's a California native who draws inspiration from the eclectic west coast atmosphere. You'll find her working from home, where she lives with her fiancé, Grant, sipping an iced coffee or mango smoothie.
