About

The Focus

Northern Design focuses on building humble, compelling and truthful brands and websites for small businesses and entrepreneurs. I love to help those who like to think big and push themselves (or if you need a nudge from me, we can comfortably get you out of your zone).

Your ideas are important to me, and I want to build upon them to create a unique experience for your audience. Collaborating to accomplish this unique outcome is crucial.

"Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

Northern Design was founded by myself, Alicia Northern in 2015. The studio is based in Oklahoma City, Okla. I have a BFA in graphic design from UCO and 5+ years of professional experience working in photography studios and creative agencies.

Work

Process

How do we
do this?

Every project is unique requires a personalized approach. I guide you through it all and you are never left questioning what the next phase of the project will be. The general process goes as follows:

“Good design begins with honesty, asks tough questions, comes from collaboration and from trusting your intuition.”
- Freeman Thomas

Discovery:

Questionnaires and a thirty minute phone call going over the form.

Research and design:

After I have a clear idea of your needs, I research your field and audience. I then start to sketch and layout out your designs.

Presentation:

Once I flesh out the ideas, I present logo options, web design or flyer design etc. You then decide what you like and what needs to change.

Wrap up:

Revisions take place or we move on to the development phase of the site and wrap up your project.

Testimonials

You and your team were wonderful to work with. We were overwhelmed by the idea of a new website - considering the cost, the process of moving all the info and trying to conceive of a "look" that also functioned for our audience felt like a daunting task. However, it was a painless and inspiring process! In addition to an awesome new website (better than we dreamed), we also developed a clearer idea of who we are, what we do, and how best to communicate both! Thank you!!

Alicia is my go-to graphic designer.  I hire Alicia to make Google AdWords display ads for me and she's always professional, fast, and makes great ads just like how my clients asked for.  I strongly recommend Alicia for any design needs you have!
Jason Rothman President at Rothman PPC
I reached out to Alicia for help finding a printing company that could print labels for my organic skin care company at an affordable rate. They needed to be durable when in contact with oils and water, pre-cut on a spool, and able to be ordered in small batches. After a 30 minute phone conversation, she sent me an email within 24 hours of 3 different vendor possibilities. I had spent about 6 total hours searching for a vendor before Alicia helped me. Next time I'm calling her first thing!
