Diane Lindquist is an award-winning multidisciplinary designer, creative director, entrepreneur, and survivor—of life and cancer.

Her work combines clean, stand-out designs with a fresh, bold, modern, and minimal aesthetic. It is unique for its use of lively colors; a synthesis of her Mexican-American heritage and love of Swedish minimal design. She is a member and has previously served on The Professional Association for Design (AIGA) Los Angeles chapter as a Board Member. She has also been featured on top industry blogs, serves as a speaker at design and creative events and most recently was named VIP Woman of the Year Circle by the National Association of Professional Women. She works as a contractor for a diverse client roster and is devoted to two side projects — GURL Museum Day and Compassionate Landscape — with a goal to empower women through art and a mission to change the social exchange of images and ideas into one fueled by our shared humanity. Her 20/0 vision has earned her the praise "one-eye designer with a fine eye”.
