Hi, I’m Pik, the Chief Design Angel

Knowing that I can help someone with my skills gets me up in the morning.

I’m a graphic designer turned brand strategist, marketer, and entrepreneur.

COVID lockdown gave me an opportunity to take my offering to the next level, by adding even more value to my clients.

I Am Committed To:

Being Helpful At All Times
I admire those making the world a better place. I'm here to help them leverage branding to more effectively communicate with customers, teams, and investors.

Being Genuine
Branding must be authentic, and an extension of the founder(s). This is how we help startups communicate their very heart & soul, inspiring customers, teams, and investors alike.

Doing Meaningful Work
I've been fortunate to work with clients, men and women, who believed in me. Unfortunately, women still suffer from inequality, so I believe in supporting femtech + women-led startups.

Don’t take my word for it

As an in-house art director for a multi-national company, I’ve worked with many designers and agencies, but I am most impressed with Pik. Unlike design agencies, Pik is flexible and personable. Her work is very creative, always brings forward professional designs and does it all in a timely manner. Pik is also a joy to work with since we first hired her in 2015. I can’t imagine working without this valuable team!

Pik helped us establish a unique look for our pitch deck and executive summary. I frequently get comments on how great my company’s pitch looks, it’s all thanks to Pik!

I’ve been working with Pik on a couple of pitch deck presentations. It was great working with her. Her creativity, speedy response times and communication style worked so well with me. I hope we get to work together again soon~

Pik was involved in the re-branding and re-design of Halal Consumer magazine. She has contributed to raising the magazine’s profile as a brand and helped us increase subscriptions by 7000 in a matter of two issues of the magazine. Open to suggestion, she transforms ideas into results that regularly beat our expectations. She is a pleasure to work with.

I partnered with Pik and her team on two re-branding projects and found a great appreciation for her process of listening and creating designs that are “mild” and “spicy”, giving me and my clients options throughout the whole process. She understands color theory, adapts with the client, and is a pleasure to collaborate with.
