Lead Designer

Costa Mesa, California / Form | by FormulaFolios

Posted: Oct 20, 2017


Form is a creative agency with a focus on the financial industry, born from its parent company, FormulaFolio Investments. We know that for most creatives the word "financial" can be scary. Don't worry, our agency operates completely separately from the financial team and partners we serve. You'll reap the benefits of a larger company with substantial budgets and great benefits while retaining the vibe of a small design or marketing agency setup.
