We are a design studio that creates and implements visual identity systems for brands — in print, web and environmental design. Our work is fresh, distinctive, thoughtful, and tailored to our clients needs. Tell us your story, your ambitions, what you’re thinking. We ask and answer many questions in order to build a robust foundation that will support the work we deliver — from the first brief to the launch, and beyond. We are conscientious, unpretentious, easy to work with, and most importantly, approachable through the process.

 

Our team:

  • KEITH KNUEVEN, Creative Director, Designer, Owner

    As founder and creative lead, Keith creates visual systems that are the foundation for brands — in print, web, motion, and the built environment. 

    Before Keith & Co., Keith worked for several Los Angeles notable design firms including KBDA, Ph.D, Selbert Perkins Design, and Siegel & Gale. He taught Typography at USC and Identity Systems at Art Center College of Design. Raised in rural northwest Ohio, he attended the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is a former Events Chair for AIGA Los Angeles and currently an Advisor for the chapter.

  • ALICIA HOLLEWEG, Designer

    Alicia Holleweg is an avid designer whose roots and cultural influences were formed in Los Angeles, California. She contributes to projects that include The Music Center, Caltech, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Metro, Barnsdall Art Park, It Gets Better Project, USC School of Cinematic Arts and others. Prior to Keith & Co., Alicia worked with Bright Design in Marina Del Rey on a number of notable projects. She studied at the Art Institute of California in Santa Monica where she graduated with honors. She’s a cat lady.

  • CHAL PIVIK, Designer

    Having been born in Pittsburgh, lived a 27-year residency in Manhattan’s West Village and then relocated to Los Angeles, Chal Pivik, in his lifelong search for truth, meaning and beauty, pours his street smarts, cultural discernment and bristling intellect into his design work. He attended NYU, The New School for Social Research, Alliance Francaise and Art Center College of Design.

    In New York he worked extensively in music and theater marketing, collaborating with and cultivating audiences for Broadway Theater entities including Lincoln Center Theater, Roundabout Theater, Dodger and the Schuberts, as well as numerous Off Broadway theater companies.

  • ANA GARCIA, Studio and Project Manager

    Ana Garcia is project and office manager at Keith & Co. She supports the K & Co. creative teams on all projects and communicates with clients regarding their unique and specific needs.  

    Previously she was a graphic designer at 944 Magazine, where she collaborated with editors, designers, and photographers to design a 10-city national magazine. She graduated from The Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, where as a student she collaborated on projects with study teams for The Eames Office and City TV Santa Monica. Ana grew up in Carpinteria, a small beach town south of Santa Barbara. Her passions beyond design extend to re-purposing and upcycling vintage furniture, DIY projects, and growing organic veggies in her garden.

  • ANDY REED, Designer

    Andy is the kind of person who packs their Adobe key shortcuts on a flash drive and keeps a camera on them at all times. Originally from Northern California, he migrated down to the Southern half to get his Graphic Design degree from Cal State Long Beach. His love of design started in his parent’s garage taking apart old electronics. This never stopped. In college, he started as an Electrical Engineering major, moved to Architecture, then ended happily in Graphic Design. That engineering spirit still drives him, motivates him, and is the foundation for his work. He believes perfect design is when form cannot be distinguished from function, and as a designer is always chasing that perfection. 

  • ERIKA YOKOI, Designer

    Erika is a recent graduate of Cal State University Long Beach. She is a member of our studio’s cat society and drives a rad motorbike.
