graphic designer specializing in brand development for creative businesses and passionate entrepreneurs



I’m Ciera Holzenthal, graphic designer and blogger who loves photography, traveling, the color green, typography, New Orleans, festivals and keyboard shortcuts. I continuously set goals for myself and strive to learn more about design and technology in order to grow in my field.



Ciera Design Studio officially launched in 2010, offering full-service graphic design services. We specialize in visual brand development for creative businesses and passionate entrepreneurs. We are based in New Orleans but work with clients nationally! Read more on our services page.



Ciera Design is a lifestyle and design blog that was created as a way to curate and share my obsessions with design. I like share my adventures as a small business owner and everything that exhilarates me as an artist. I also love sharing DIY projects, photography, home decor, arts and crafts, inspired living and all things graphic design.
