Thoughtful Branding for Purpose-Driven Business Owners
You’ve got a vision for your business that’s as unique and inspiring as you are—without the branding you need to bring it to life. Here at Grafikisto, we know that branding isn’t just about your logo, your color palette, or your typography. It’s about how all the creative elements work together in unity to showcase your personality and business identity to the world.
Grafikisto is a full-service branding studio based in Los Angeles, California. Creative director Maria Troconis founded Grafikisto in 2011 with her mother, Veronica de Gregorio, as project manager. Together we have a combined 40 years of experience in creative direction, graphic design, art direction, branding, creative strategy, and project management.
Our clients—purpose-driven business owners launching their new idea or updating their brand—hire us to provide creative consulting and produce their brand identity, including logos, websites, print and digital marketing materials, photography, and promotional videos.
When you work with us, it’s a true partnership: We create a welcoming environment for you to share your ideas and feel heard. Your input is an essential part of the work we do.
At Grafikisto, we believe in timeless design and place an equal emphasis on function (how it will work) and aesthetics (how it will look).
