You only get one chance to make a good first impression, which is why it is so important to have a professionally designed logo. A logo should be clean, simple, timeless and instantly recognizable. Do you need just a logo or to rebrand your entire company? I can help with both of these.

My Work

About Me


Hello! My name is Claire McNabb.

I am a graphic designer in San Diego, California. I am originally from Indiana, but life took me to the West Coast about two years ago. I graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communication. Aside from designing, I love all the good things in life: food, family, friends, a good book, the outdoors, great shoes, and my dog. Above all, I simply love to create. I am passionate about design, typography, and color. I strive to maintain a balance of functionality and visual impact in all of my work. I don’t think beautiful aesthetics need to be sacrificed for function. A good blending that helps your business in the process– that's what I’m all about.


I am an freelance graphic designer and design consultant serving the Southern California area and beyond.

I specialize in branding, print design, and website layout design, but I am also experienced in many other types of visual communication.


A good graphic design process is centered around ensuring the client gets the highest quality solution for their business. My process involves an initial briefing to fully understand your needs, development of concepts and design, following with revisions to get a final product you are happy with.


You should choose me for your graphic design needs because:

  • I will capture the most compelling way to convey what your business is all about.
  • You will get a professional and reliable service.
  • You will get the same value as an agency, but at a fraction of the price.
