About

Design Action provides graphic design and visual communications for progressive, non-profit, and social change organizations.

By providing high-quality professional graphic design and web development services, we aim to help build and strengthen progressive movements fighting for economic and social justice.

Design Action Collective began in 2002 as an independent design and communications spin-off of Inkworks Press Collective. This allowed us to better serve movements for social and economic justice by expanding our design capabilities to provide web and other interactive and “new media” services, and continue to expand to include strategic communications and messaging.

Over the last 14 years we have grown to be a diverse, multilingual, 11-person shop that is majority people of color, women, and trans folks.

Our members are social justice activists and organizers who offer our skills as graphic designers and web developers to progressive movements.

Design Action is a worker-owned and managed cooperative and a union shop, affiliated with the Pacific Media Guild, Local 39521 Communication Workers of America, AFL-CIO. We are also active members of Grassroots Global Justice AllianceGraphic Alliance, the Network of Bay Area Worker Cooperatives, and the U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives.

We are bound together by our Points of Unity.
