Why Coda?

Creativity and Experience

From our headquarters in Oakland, California, Coda Creative creates award-winning graphic design for clients in the Bay Area, and from across North America. We offer our clients:


Innovation, original thinking and a big-picture approach are the tools of our trade. We focus on making your company or event stand out from the crowd with unique, attention-grabbing designs. Our work has won awards such as Communicator Magazine’s Award of Excellence, Creativity Annual’s Award of Distinction for three consecutive years and Print Magazine’s Certificate of Design Excellence, among others – but our ultimate goal is to showcase you at your best, in a way that is lively and dynamic, yet aligned with your corporate objectives.


You need someone who’s done this before — someone who knows what works and what doesn’t. Since 1998, we’ve delivered high-impact graphic design to both corporate and event clients. We can suggest different formats or sizes that can cut printing or mailing costs or increase visibility; more efficient production methods; and new ideas for direct mail.

Accuracy & Timeliness

We get it right the first time. Because we have experience with the complexities of preparing for a conference or launching a new product, we understand the nature of shifting deadlines and last-minute content changes. You can rest assured that your job will be done well and on time — without having to sacrifice even a tiny bit of the visual richness your brand deserves.


We take the time to truly listen to you. To understand your product, service or event and to draw out what makes it sparklingly unique. We transform this knowledge into highly accurate design. We know all too well the importance that a thorough knowledge of your strengths and differentiators can make to the end design.

Personal Attention

No matter what size your campaign, project or event is, you get the personal attention of Coda Creative’s principal, Paola Coda. Paola collaborates with you to understand your unique needs and create an insightful visual story that enthralls your audience and sparks their imagination.


As a smaller, boutique graphic design firm, we are nimble, responding to changing requirements quickly and efficiently. We can do as little or as much as you need us to – from templates only to full implementation. We can follow your direction, or take the lead and coordinate everything from concept to delivery.

Put Coda’s experience and creativity to work for you. We’d be happy to discuss your next project. Contact us toll-free at 888.280.1211 for a free no-obligation estimate. Or if you’re in the San Francisco Bay area, you can reach our Oakland office at 510.654.3200.
