.behind the studio.

Danielle McWaters is a designer with over 9 years of experience under her belt. She started her creative career as a photographer then transitioned into graphic design where she has since worked with big and small brands on branding, packaging, and global advertising campaigns. In 2014, she started her own boutique design studio, Designsake Studio, based in San Francisco.

Danielle is a believer of design and its ability to create new connections and lasting impressions. It drives her to create things that are not only authentic, but that matter.

When she isn’t designing, shes’s jammin’ out to The Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates, tasting the latest pizza SF has to offer, or on a plane adventuring the world with her husband.
