What’s with the name Green Pea Design?
We are a green company, meaning we are earth friendly! When Green Pea Design was first launched in 2005, we made a commitment to do everything we could to be friendly to the environment. We recycle all waste, bottles, cans, plastics, paper, computer equipment, cords and ink. Whenever possible, we use earth friendly inks and papers at our local print houses. Our group at Green Pea Design also practices vegan & vegetarian lifestyles for a happier, friendlier, and healthier tomorrow.
The owner came up with the silly name because she is just that – silly, but she is also passionate about eating healthy, loves gardening, and is a vegetarian.
The Green Pea also symbolizes growth. Green Pea Design began as a one-man operation, but over time and with a little nurturing, has grown into a successful company and will continue to grow.

Ecommerce websites range depending on the complexity of the project. Please call for an estimate and details.
Logo design takes 2 weeks. One week for concepting, and one week to finalize with the client.
Rush projects are accepted for a slightly higher rate, however not recommended for logo design.
How do you price?
Ecommerce websites are billed on an hourly basis and are generally maintained and paid through a monthly retainer based upon an agreement we come to with each client depending on their budget. Our goal is to provide our clients with the tools they need to succeed with their online business and we can find the correct solution for any budget.
Standard WordPress websites range from $1500~$2250 depending on the complexity, number of pages, plug-ins, and number of revisions.
Our monthly maintenance packages range depending on how many revisions, updates and posts are needed. We also offer all website clients a free 1-hour training session to learn how to make your own text edits, and how to upload photos and videos on your own.
We offer monthly payments for long-term clients needing graphics, marketing, social media, website maintenance, website backups, SEO, and ongoing website updates.
Graphic Design is billed on an hourly basis, however, before the start of any project we always provide new clients with an estimate and design brief to prevent any confusion.
Our Work Flow
At Green Pea Design we begin by asking new clients a series of questions, which tells us about your company, your needs, goals, and expectations. We offer this form on our website or you may get in touch with us directly by emailing or calling.
Design Brief & Estimate
After the initial interview, we have a much better understanding about your project. Now we reiterate in form of a design brief. This works as a clarification between designer and client to make sure we have the same goals in mind, and there are no misunderstandings. With the design brief, we also include a design estimate to break down the costs involved in the work described. Once the estimate is agreed upon, Green Pea Design will proceed with the project.
Research & Design
We now begin research on your company’s industry. In order to design a successful logo, advertisement, or any print or web campaign, we must have knowledge about your competition and your target audience. We search for inspiration, colors, concepts, and styles. We investigate what other companies have done to see what has been successful and what has failed. All these clues help direct our concepts in the right direction.
Combining all the information we have gathered, we sketch ideas on paper, fitting in each aspect together like a puzzle. We look at everything we wrote on our brainstorming sheet and begin forming rough sketches out of the visuals we get from the words. Only after we feel confident that we have enough clever sketches do we begin generating the ideas on the computer.
We select our strongest concepts to present to you for consideration. Our client may chooses his/her favorite design concept and ask us to make any adjustments at this time.
Once revisions are completed, your designer will present the final designs to you either digitally or on CD in a variety of formats.
Cilla and Kurt did a fantastic job on my new website. I could not be happier. They really listened to my ramblings about how I wanted the site to look and how the ‘feel’ of the site was important to me. They managed to get the website EXACTLY how I had envisioned it and how it needed to be. Their communication was top notch and they were extremely patient with my constant tinkering. Kurt’s tutorial at the end was also very helpful and he even managed to make a rather “computably challenged” person like myself confident that I could handle adding content/images to the new site. Awesome. I’d highly recommend Green Pea Design to anyone needing any kind of web or graphic design work.Andy Vevers
I’m so happy I found these guys. Not only are they incredibly talented and professional, they’re personable and great to work with. I called a few different places around LA, and every other company seemed disinterested and just wanted to send me quotes (which seemed extreme for the website I wanted) and get off the phone with me.
Priscilla handled the organization of my website, and she was wonderful. She called consistently to make sure I understood what was needed (I’m not the most tech-savvy) and to check if I was pleased with her work. Kurt handled the actual creation of the website, and he was just as great to work with. He very patiently took me through a tutorial, and has continued to help me make changes so I would be completely satisfied. I love these guys so much! They absolutely a pleasure to talk to, and worked tirelessly to make sure I got the website I wanted. I would recommend them to any and everyone, they are the best in California.Kate St. Clair
Priscilla and Kurt did a great job on our new website (tvalaw.com) and finished it faster than I ever thought possible. The process was easy, smooth and cost effective. If you’re considering building or modifying a website, Green Pea Design should be your first call!Thomas Vogele
