About Me


Hey there! I'm Alaina Leverenz. I started my freelance branding and design company in 2016 while I was a master's student at IUPUI. My very first client was the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning where I partnered magnificent team that helped rebrand the entire national organization and many of its local chapters. Since then, I've partnered with many wonderful companies in both the nonprofit and for-profit industries to make their advertising, websites, and rebranding dreams come true. 

I feel so lucky to get to do what I do and I am excited for the opportunity to partner with you too. I hope you will peruse around my website, check out my portfolio, and the many different ways we can work together using the navigation at the top of the page.
