FARM Creative is the creative studio of Alana Jelinek, Designer, Artist, and (Green)MBA, located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is to create awesomeness for small to mid-sized businesses and nonprofit organizations.
I LIVE BY THE ABSOLUTE BELIEF THAT GOOD DESIGN IS GOOD BUSINESS. Good design adds value to your business, so let's hit that sweet spot for you!
Founded in 1998, FARM Creative is a green and socially-conscious design consultancy. Our methods are designed to reduce your impact on the environment while increasing your impact in the marketplace.
When not busy with “brand pollination,” I can usually be found out in the back 40 or out on trails near and far, harmonizing with nature and the sprouts in my life.
If you would like more awesomeness for your business, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.
I hired Alana to redesign an existing company logo and to design a logo for a new business that I'm launching. In both cases, Alana was very thorough in first reviewing competitive logos, before producing a wide variety of logo designs for each business. Her designs were innovative, imaginative, very unique, and highly creative. She also designed beautiful two-sided business cards. I was very impressed with Alana’s high level of expertise and creativity, thoughtful designs, and willingness to fine-tune her designs to her client’s satisfaction

four time client - branding, logos
As an Organization Development Consultant, I’ve spent my career searching for ways to help people understand how I can help their organization become its most effective. Alana zero’ed in on my message and in very short order created a logo and various collateral marketing pieces and website that speak directly to my business proposition. I recently I walked into the office of a client’s Senior Vice President to find my postcard proudly displayed on his bulletin board! If you provide a service or a product that you believe in and are ready to reach your market with a cogent, visually brilliant campaign – I highly recommend FARMcreative.

“I worked with Alana years ago on some package designs. Her work was vibrant and creative, far better than the product it was created for. When I needed a logo for my new business last year, Alana was the obvious choice.”

Alana gave my sales team the kind of materials they needed to be able to go out and “Make an Opening Statement“ wherever they go. A very successful promotion for our company.

Working with Alana has always been a great experience. She's very skilled and easy to communicate with. Her work is top notch, always on time and never disappoints. We are constantly getting comments on the creative and innovative products that she has designed for us. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great teammate in the graphic design world.

Alana is extremely creative and sees the bigger marketing picture. She envisions all the design and marketing needs of the company or project from the beginning; from website, to brochures, to information sheets, to business cards, to fliers and post cards. And she knows how to tell your story, with words and images. I was relieved to be able to talk over an idea with her and get something back that was basically ready for a final edit. She just got it.
-- Jonah Nisenson, Founder
I love Alana's style and design sense.
I keep coming back to her year after year. She is my go-to gal for creating strong brands that will stand the test of time. I also love her strategic mind and sustainable business values. I consider her a core part of my project team.
