EVERYONE HAS A STORY

I am here to help you tell your story. Through user-centric  and holistic design, my goal is to help you create an experience which speaks not just of your product or services, but also speaks in your voice. I am here to help you tell your story to the world, one pixel at a time.

MY STORY

My passion for design, started at the young age of 13,  when I took a one-week course in photography. I simply fell in love. Studying things in details, looking through the lens, composing, finding the perfect light, I had found a way to communicate.  When it was time for college I decided to move from Uppsala, Sweden to Los Angeles to pursue a degree in photography and design.  I continued on to earn my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in graphic design. As my professional journey continued, I shifted from photography to more graphic design heavy work and eventually web design. To understand the development process better, I took night/weekend classes and continued my studies in front-end development and UX design. Currently I work as a Sr. Web Design and Development Specialist.

Whether in the capacity of a consultant or in-house employee, I’ve had the privilege of managing a multitude of projects and leading creative teams for all size companies, from international multi-million dollar to start ups. My role has varied tremendously in the capacity of each project and client. Regardless of the industry, my focus is always to identify each clients unique needs and to find a creative solution for it. This has in turn led me to successfully do what I love for many years.

The overall story

If each person contributed something positive (however small) to their community, the impact would be massive. I frequently volunteer at various non-profits such as help building homes at Habitat for Humanity, pack food for those in need at LA Food Bank, and collect toys for Toys for Tots. I dream of  a world where all humans have equal quality of life.

All acts, however small, have a cumulative effect on the world. Be mindful…

What Clients Say About Me

“We first began working with Violet back in 2015. We were impressed with her ability to grasp and produce for us a proposal that was intelligible, yet elaborate in graphic representation and met our vision for this project with tight deadlines. Working with Violet was a pleasure. Throughout the entire process it was apparent that she was a passionate artist who loved her craft as she provided us with the flexibility to create numerous modifications that introduced special details to our proposal. Since then we have worked with Violet on several other projects.  Violet is truly a passionate graphic artist, a responsive-honest professional, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for design/graphic services.”

Francois Nion, Creative Director Outfront/JC Decaux

“She did my first website 10 years ago and has been my creative go-to person ever since. She has been involved in all my branding needs, including  online advertising, email marketing and both our e-commerce  and event websites. Besides her creative powers, she is very knowledgable in her field and is resourceful in finding new ways. With an incredible commitment to each project as well as her perferctionism, she is simply the best fit for our company needs. I can’t say enough good things about her!”

David Z - Owner, David Z Events & My DTLA Florist

“Violet simply listens to you, asks a few questions, pauses, then says  ‘I got it’. This is how it starts. You want to work with someone who anticipates your needs and your “non materialized” vision, because before you know it, you realize the work is half way done.”

Severine Tatangelo - CEO/Owner, Studio PCH

Asbarez Introduces New Digital Platform

The website was produced by Violet Khodagolian of DesigninLA and her collaborator Vachik Ghadimian. Aside from addressing the functionality of the website and the specific needs of Asbarez, these two young and energetic professionals had the arduous task of ensuring that our archives were properly migrated onto the new site, a task which proved to be much more tedious and time-consuming than initially expected. We would like to thank Khodagolian…

Stay Curious and Creative

The Sweet Dreamer is a beautifully illustrated, fantastically imagined children’s picture book. It shares a powerful message about living our dreams, even as an adult. Saccareccia and her co-creator and illustrator Violet Khodagolian have tested the draft on a crowd ranging in age up to 86, however, and their feedback has been the same: This story is a beautiful way of reminding us to keep our sense of wonder alive.
