COPY & DESIGN is a creative studio in Long Beach, California

We provide creative content, websites, and print for clients large and small. Whether you’re in Orange County or Los Angeles (or three-thousand miles away), you can expect your project to be delivered on time and on budget.

What We Do

A few of the many services we provide


Higher Ed. California sea lions. Neon green beverages. We’ve concepted and written for them all. And then some. Whether writing about high tech, higher education, or high heels, we’re equally comfortable in any industry, market or niche.


From new sites to new content, we design and build websites that put the user experience first. Whether a large institutional presence or a small business need, we create websites that are easy-to-use and look good on every device.


From logo design to billboards, we can take care of your print needs both large and small, giving you a uniform design and messaging across your digital and print collateral.

Social Media & Email Marketing

From social media to full-blown email newsletters, we get your message into the hands of your subscribers with a design and content good enough to share (or tweet, or post, or pin).
