Our Company

Albertson Design is a San Francisco creative agency focused on transformation through effective communications. Our method is anchored by a creative strategy, allowing us to collaborate deeply with leadership teams, and guide our work as designers, writers, coders, and crafters.

We have helped launched media companies, built social networks, and re-imagined what is activism. Since 2009, Albertson Design has served as the go-to design consultant for TED, providing overall visual identity and art direction for the annual conference, plus other divisions of the organization.
