Nomad Design House was founded by Laura Galvin and Trever Adams. We’re a team of designers from opposite coasts of the U.S. who met and joined creative forces overseas. After meeting on the beach in Costa Rica, we discovered not only were we both travel-lovers, but also designers and artists. We bonded over critiquing logos and menu designs while traveling, and realized there was a need for affordable branding and web design services for small businesses and entrepreneurs. So we set out to build an agency that offered unique, quality work that businesses on a budget could afford. We both have a formal art education, plus diverse background in traditional art, web and digital design, marketing, as well as clothing design and production, product design, and photography.


We are inspired by nature, travel, culture, and the freedom of a minimalist lifestyle. Our favorite projects are related to the ocean, environment, travel, health, wellness, or eco-friendly companies and brands. Protecting our natural resources and living in balance with the earth is something we feel strongly about, and try to incorporate as much as possible into our lifestyle and work. We also love helping non-profits and companies that give back to the community they are in with their design needs.


We love helping small businesses succeed, and creating a strong visual identity and brand materials are key to that success. Our branding and web design services give other entrepreneurs, digital nomads, and expat-owned businesses the tools they need to reach their clients and develop into thriving businesses. Seeing other people achieve freedom by working for themselves and helping to make their dreams a reality is such a rewarding task.


As our name suggests, we are digital nomads and can work from anywhere. Currently we spend the most time in Costa Rica and Seattle, but can also be found in the New York and Orange County areas, Panama, Nicaragua or exploring new places. Follow our Instagram to see where we are currently!
