Who We Are

Create Fam Studio is a design studio that offers collateral design and identity/brand consulting services in San Diego.

We *especially* love working with folks who value and practice critical thinking, cross-cultural collaboration, and community-building in their work.

 

 
 

How We Started

Designer Moe Abugan founded Create Fam Studio as a way to help build the creative-progressive landscape within the greater San Diego region. Moe has moonlighted as a collateral and print designer for nearly 10 years. Many of those projects and roles, however, were worked on a volunteer basis and without compensation. It wasn't until January 2017 that Moe felt compelled to build a home base for her creative design work. 

Originally, CFS started as a pro bono hub for creative, collaborative and educational projects. It was a beautifully lofty and ambitious vision! Ultimately, though, we live in a capitalism-driven society and money is a thing. We hope to return to this vision in the future.

Here's a fun/sad fact: our studio logo is a lightning bolt because we miss the San Diego Chargers.

Yes, seriously. We wanted to reclaim that #BoltUp emoji 😭 ⚡️

Identity

 

Kuya Ate Mentorship Program (KAMP) San Diego

We successfully rebranded a grassroots mentorship group by redesigning the website, newsletter, and overall look and vibe online. Since the revamp, KAMP has seen a significant increase in traffic to their website, including direct messages from interested volunteers and collaborators.

Learn the Essentials

Learn the Essentials (LTE) is a natural health and wellness blog that integrates essential oils wisdom, mindfulness and behavioral knowledge. LTE is run by Rhonalyn Santos, a working graduate student based in San Diego. We consulted on LTE's direction and key stakeholders, and based on our conversations, we were able to design a new logo and website header.
