Hi! My name is Shadalene.
That's pronounced "Shay-duh-lean" and
rhymes with "Maybelline."
I'm the designer & owner of Shadalene Villaluz Design, a one-woman marketing design & branding studio specialized in formulating and actualizing design solutions for businesses. I’ve worked as a designer for small businesses as well as corporate marketing teams.
I’m experienced in logo & branding creation, marketing collateral & print design, editorial design, digital assets, and creating website wireframes. I’m based in San Diego with clients across California.
A Little About Me
I’m a designer with prior experience in marketing, startups, editorial, non-profits and fashion.
I’m a proud alumna of UCLA (B.A. in English) and UCLAx (Design and Communication Arts Certificate).
Cooking, reading, and running are my go-to stress relievers.
I first learned how to use Photoshop c. 2003 to create Smallville and Gilmore Girls photo collages.
I've been sewing since I was little.
What They're Saying
"We have had the pleasure of working with Shades for a little over a year now and can’t begin to express how grateful I am that we found her. Shades is a creative genius and a highly organized thinker, all rolled into one fabulous gal. She listens to what we need, expands upon the vision, then responds with a multitude of great options from which to choose. She has a keen eye for both quality and value.
Shades has helped us create a brand - including logo, letterhead, business cards, marketing materials, website design and social media - which truly expresses our vision and effectively targets our client base. Thank you, Shades, for being an integral part of the creation and launch of our branding."
"Shadalene designed a poster for an exhibit I was creating. I gave her almost nothing to work with - just a description of what my exhibit would be about - but nonetheless she came up with an amazing design that my whole team loved. I can't recommend her enough. "
