About Us

For more than 20 years, Chen Design Associates has been helping clients find a voice to express the genuine and the necessary, the illuminating and the unexpected. Telling your best story gets your business noticed. Telling it in bold and authentic terms keeps your audience riveted. And loyal.

Our work is guided by a strategic and ambitious creative process and is grounded in the particular objectives of each client. We infuse a sense of alignment and engagement into every aspect of our work. We are streamlined to stay nimble and personal, even as our projects increase in size and scope. Because we are experts, not egoists, we engage clients in the process to foster respect and fuel invention. Together, we move people -- to explore, to wonder, to succeed.

CDA actively seeks clients who are passionate about creating quality products and services that enhance people's lives, who value strategy and integrity in the implementation of creative communications, who are interested in engaging their audiences' curiosity, and desire to use the earth's resources more responsibly. Sound good? Sound familiar? We could be a great fit.
