about us

We are Cal’s own premier, on-campus creative agency. We are an ASUC-sponsored undergraduate organization with members who are passionate about design, strive to improve their skills, be inspired, and inspire others. We satisfy out members' cravings to design and the community's thirst for quality work by providing free or low-cost design, photography, and web services to fellow clubs. We are organized in small teams, with team leads who connect with clients and help you grow as an artist.

Here is where passion feeds creativity and creativity inspires innovative designs.

Innovative Design was founded at UC Berkeley in 2008 by Jeff Fan with the goal of inspiring students on campus to the amazing world of design. Since then, Innovative Design has expanded and changed to now include design, photography, and web services.
