Who We Are

Who We Are

Nørvik Design is a multi-disciplinary, one-woman graphic design studio. We work with small businesses and entrepreneurs who want to grow their business and build their brands. The creative services offered include print design, full branding experiences, custom illustration, packaging, and web design design and development.

While the approach to each project is unique, the process begins with the same tried and true method. First and foremost it's about listening to the client's desires, strategizing, and putting pencil to paper. Through this process of sketching and brainstorming, we arrive at beautiful, highly conceptualized design solutions.

We work closely with established collaborators all around the bay area — so whether you need custom offset printing, or a seasoned copy writer — you'll be covered.  It is is our role and responsibility to take your ideas, narrative, or brand and bring it all to life.

It's a team effort: client + designer.

We've been fortunate to work with some amazing clients on incredibly fulfilling projects. Here are a few shared thoughts from our clients on their experience working with us.

I have known Gretchen for over 10 years and feel lucky to have worked with her on several projects. Our latest collaboration was for my new consulting business, where she took care of everything from the branding to the website. It was an incredible experience working with her again —which always feels very organic and stress free. She keeps one step ahead and meets all our deadlines and budgets. Gretchen is a very talented and creative professional, uniquely skilled to capture the essence of what I had in mind for my company—which she translated into something exceeding my expectations. 
Isabelle Mazzoni  |  Principal, Collingwood Consulting
When it came time to hire a designer for our most recent investor conference, Nørvik Designs was the easy choice. We’ve had the pleasure to work with Gretchen on our last two conferences, and we’ve felt very fortunate to have such a talented and skilled designer be our partner on these hugely important events for us. Gretchen has an impeccable eye for design and has helped us produce our most polished and creative conference materials ever – both in digital and print. In addition, she is extremely reliable, communicative and professional, giving us the peace of mind to know that when we’re working with her, the work will get done on time and it will look fantastic.
April Ciaccio  |  Investor Relations, ValueAct Capital
Having worked with Gretchen for nearly four years now, I have seen our school’s publications go from standard to stunning. In particular, we have recently worked on two pieces that have received raves from our school community — the last issue of the school magazine, which is published twice a year, and a recent redesign of our admissions viewbook. In both these cases, Gretchen listened to me attempt to explain my vision, helped me hone that vision, and brought it to life with beautiful designs that I was so proud to share with my colleagues and our constituents. 
I feel so grateful to have found Gretchen when I did. She is such a talented designer and I truly feel that she has helped me elevate the publications of University High School to the next level. When I recently told her that I wanted to continue to push, to reach for that next level still, she didn’t bat an eye — she told me without hesitation that she was on board. Having someone so talented, and who is constantly striving for something even better, on our team in invaluable. 
Alissa Kinney Moe  |  Director of Communications, San Francisco University High School
Gretchen's a special find in the design world. If you're lucky enough to work with her, you'll see why. Gretchen has superlative vision, which makes her a powerful asset, especially in the concepting phase, which can always be tough when translating business ideas into design reality. On execution — from printed pieces, corporate materials, environmental design, to all things digital — she's a wizard. The clincher is, along with being a great creative, Gretchen's a total pro. Deadlines, budgets, communication, delivery, design team leadership — you're always covered. When she's on a project you know it's going to go the way you want it to. That piece of mind alone is worth its weight in gold.
Ben Barenholtz  |  VP Marketing and Communications, Reach Analytics
As a print broker for 35 years, I have worked with many graphic designers. Gretchen is exceptional. Her design, layout and presentation is graphically beautiful, clean and conceptual and with design that captures the text! Her files are always complete and she is readily accessible if edits are quickly needed. She is a team player and I have great respect for her collaborative input.
