We specialize in thoughtful, minimalist brand design that reflects the enduring elegance of intentionality, strategy, and story. Above all else, we value our inspired clients and their visionary thinking, partnering consciously for the benefit of our collaborators and the creative process.
In the spirit of mindful living and intentional artistry, we aim to listen before speaking, think before doing, and discover before designing.

Hey, friend! I’m Lindsay. The lead designer and mentor behind Mariko Studio. I’m a typeface obsessed, adventure-loving foodie, and F45 fanatic with an appreciation for all things aesthetically pleasing (brands, interiors, food, places, you name it!).
I have seven years of design experience, including four years of formal education under my belt. In 2020, I took a risk and quit my corporate job in pursuit of flexibility and freedom.
But what I realized lights me up most, goes far beyond working from home in my sweatpants. I discovered a passion for giving founders like you the tools to show up confidently and wholeheartedly in your business.
Enter: Mariko Studio (formerly known as Lindsay Mariko Design) — an intimate creative studio delivering thoughtful design solutions rooted in strategy and visual storytelling. It’s my hope that through the services and resources provided by the studio, brands and business owners alike will flourish and realize the impact of their story when told with smarts and style.
A few fun facts about me? I’m a true ambivert, who’s obsessed with all things skincare (especially its packaging). I live for a good breakfast sandwich. When I’m not designing, you’ll find me at a local coffee shop sipping on an oat latte, sleuthing through Pinterest for my next recipe, taking a trip somewhere new, or binging on Bravo shows.
As a textbook Pisces, I know what it’s like to have big dreams and I’m here to help you make those dreams a reality.
