For nearly two decades, Candice Stern has helped financial services firms and nonprofits tell their stories through thoughtful, well-crafted design.


An award-winning designer, Candice Stern has a client list filled with household names like Citi, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Ogilvy PR and Transamerica. She is proud to have built her business almost entirely from referrals. Before launching Candice Stern Graphic Design, she worked in small design studios, big agencies and Fortune 500 corporations, touching nearly every aspect of graphic design and the creative process. 

"Candice was perhaps the most conscientious, focused and creative graphic designer I worked with during my 20 years at Citi. She was naturally talented but always team-first in her approach. She took responsibility willingly, held herself personally accountable and worked to a very high standard."

Ed Cheney
Vice President, Citigroup


Candice knows that every business or organization needs a designer who sees the big picture and takes the time to understand their mission. She believes that graphic design is an investment in your business and a designer is a strategic member of your marketing team. In this fast-paced world, the need for short, dynamic storytelling is essential—Candice comprehends complex information and distills it to produce compelling and informative visuals. 

"We loved working with Candice on our annual report. She took the time to understand our organization and mission, worked with us closely and patiently from conception to completion and designed
a wonderful product that we are proud to share with stakeholders."

Jeff Yuen
Impact Assessment Coordinator, New Jersey Community Capital


Candice understands that exceptional design goes beyond the artistic. She is passionate about graphic design because it combines her love of problem solving with her artistic talents. She also brings project management expertise to every job. Candice hones her organizational skills every day as a happily-married Hoboken mother of two daughters and three rescue pups.

"Candice is not only a great, creative designer, with wonderful attention to detail and the experience to know what works and what doesn't—she is also one of the nicest people I've ever worked with."
