About

ARTISA LLC is an award-winning graphic design studio, celebrating more than 20 years of consulting in the Greater Princeton New Jersey area. Specializing in graphic design and marketing for businesses, museums, universities, foundations, corporate and nonprofit organizations, ARTISA excels in creating museum books, catalogues, responsive website design, corporate identity, branding and image consulting.

Founded by Isabella Duicu Palowitch (ART+ISA from Isabella), ARTISA’s designs are strongly influenced by the fundamental artistic principles of proportion, color, composition, and expression—principles that grew out of the founder’s education and training in the fine arts. At ARTISA LLC, we believe that design works and is at its best when function, value, and aesthetics connect to form a final product that exceeds our clients’ goals and visions. We embrace each project from concept to delivery of final work, in a boutique-like fashion with attention to detail.

Milton Glaser’s famous quote resonates with us: “There are three responses to a piece of design—yes, no, and WOW!” “WOW” is the one we have a passion for and aim to achieve. You are invited to contact ARTISA for your next design project or immediately request an estimate.
