I am a full service




I have a talent for turning client and customer ideas into realities. I’m a creative thinker and outside of the box do-er.

I believe every business has a story to tell and every brand deserves exceptional, full service, holistic graphic design and marketing.

I specialize in brand identity with focuses in web design, packaging, social media advertising, photography, and event launches.

I’m the support you’ve been looking for. 

What I do

Story telling is at the heart of all my designs. I believe that every image has a message and it is my job to capture your brand’s message through your visuals.

Why we are different

Coffee and Characters is full service creative agency. I do a bit of it all, but specialize in branding, design, and advertising.

The bulk of my client base works in the publishing industry, but I enjoy working with non-profits, educators, and small business owners as well.

My aim is to give you design that is not only visually attractive, but that sells.




From Our Clients

“Danielle provided our organization with Facebook advertisement support during a rigorous and hectic campaign period. She is extremely knowledgeable, immediately got down to work, and always kept our bottom line in mind. Even when she outperformed our expectations, she always kept trying to beat her personal best! I couldn’t have asked for better help and feel that she helped me grow in my career and position in my organization as well as helped me develop skills I can carry beyond my current job. I would not only choose her first for future projects but if I could I would hire her full time!”

Natalia Chung, @GreenForAll

“Thank you to Coffee and Characters for your your hard work in designing UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative’s unique logo. We’re so excited about the final product! Danielle was a pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend her enough.

Sonja Diaz, @LPPI

“Danielle developed our unique logo and built our website. After working with another company for over a year with little progress we were excited to get to work and Danielle was able to provide exactly what we wanted with a very limited window of time in which to get the job done. We are so happy with her work and will definitely use her again.”

Jana Teslow, @DrJonJudd

I taught myself PS, but with Danielle’s courses, I learned a bazillion things i didn’t know. Liquefy, brushes, healing brushes and even how to change faces! I’m getting ready to do the next course. I went from “Amateur covers” to “holy moley who designed that?” in like 6 weeks!
She’s amazing and thorough. And it’s so easy.
Thank you Danielle, You made my year.
