VAVA Graphics Office


We started small, helping the little guy become successful among giants. 2012 was the founding year we decided to make a larger impact in our community. The acronym "VAVA" Stands for Van Aken Visual Arts, named after owner Tristan Van Aken. Ramping up, we started cultivating and headhunting the best designers and strategists in the USA to join our team. Our goal was not just to help businesses grow, but to use the best of the best to make that happen. From there we gained a popular reputation amongst business owners and corporations in Charlotte, providing a high standard of service unseen anywhere else in our industry. Since then, we have served over 300 businesses in Charlotte grow visually & financially, through strategy led design.

Strategy Led Design

Strategy Led Design

Unlike most design agencies, we sit down one-on-one with you and your company, allowing us to learn about your goals, vision, ideas, and core values. Prior to talking about design, we want to further understand your clients wants and needs. This will help us bridge the gap that will drive consumers to your company. We conduct extensive research into your competitors and other logos and brands that inspire you, so upon the logo creation process, we know what to stay away from, what works, compels, and thrives for your company.

The Secret Sauce - Why We Provide Results

The secret is simple. We stay educated, excel in communication, and are an established fluid agency without limits or debt. This is not the case with most agencies out there. Our fluidity allows us to access highly professional designers around the USA to help assist in any project we need, giving you the best work possible. Every one of our designers have passed a rigorous design process. We attend design summits, pay for continuous education, and learn from the top agencies in the world on design trends, market changes, and business growth.
Best of all we are strategists alongside artists. Our knowledge in business and finances gives us the edge needed to put an action plan in place, while understanding your business concerns and goals so you see growth through effective design and strategy.
