Designing Influence. Drawing Attention.
I create visual design and branding based on your vision and values so that you can achieve your marketing and organizational goals. My creative solutions have helped some clients to realize as much as a 500% increase in their business in just a few years.
I approach the design process as a collaborative effort with you. My creative insights mesh with your specific understanding of your services and products. I design to appeal to your customers and clients.
Approaching brand design in this manner requires an investment of time and focus. There are no instant, off-the-rack solutions. My process results in a unique, stand-out and appealing brand that sets your business apart, draws attention to your message and increases your influence.
A few of the clients I've worked with
Let's Work Together
Businesses and Organizations
I focus on full-scope projects with a 6-week minimum duration, and retainer contracts of one year or longer. The advantage to you is that it allows me to focus on just a few clients at a time, study your customer base and your market position, and get to know the vision and mission for your business. We’ll build a quality working relationship with mutual benefit.
Authors and Publishers
Are you self-publishing? Do you need illustration for the cover or interior? Do you need compelling cover design? Do you want your book designed cover-to-cover? Do you need help with publishing on Amazon or Nook?
I’m happy to work with you on a portion or the entire book, whether it’s a trade book, textbook, fiction or non-fiction.

LOGO and IDENTITY DESIGN
Creation of a unique logo or trademark, stand-alone or with applications to communications formats, graphic standards manuals, research and consultation. Your logo is the foundation of your brand strategy; everything else emanates from it, and it’s applied to everything from your business cards to social media.
WEB and DIGITAL DESIGN
I design custom websites built on the WordPress framework that are visitor-friendly, pretty to look at, and consistent with your branding. Ongoing maintenance is available, or I’ll train you to manage your site to keep your costs low.

In our fast paced world of Human Resources, we are constantly changing our focus and our priorities. In this environment, it helps when you have someone who is willing to work with you and accommodate your requests. I have found this to be the true in working with Alvalyn.
She has consistently met deadlines and managed changing priorities on the many projects that we asked her to develop. In doing so, the quality of the product has not been sacrificed. Alvalyn has been a great addition to our team.

PRINT and COLLATERAL DESIGN
I started out designing for print, and it represents about 55% of my project work currently. In additional to design I manage all aspects of the print production, working with carefully qualified printers both on ground and online.
Alvalyn Lundgren has worked on numerous projects for Van Nuys Airport Public and Community Relations. The considerable scope of her work has included one-page ads and flyers, brochures and pamphlets, and a comprehensive academic journal with a full-color cover and over 100 pages. In every sense, we have found her to be a reliable professional who produces aesthetically pleasing material in a timely manner. She also makes herself very accessible and communicates well. Without the slightest hesitation, I would recommend Ms. Lundgren as a one-stop-shop for meeting virtually anyone’s graphic design needs.
