“Joana is one of the few people who knows how to bring someone’s brand to life online. She’s got a great team and does truly great work. I recommend barely any people for things, but Joana always comes through.”

- Todd Herman

Gif Design Studios is the best agency I’ve ever worked with. They produced a website that was more beautiful and creative then I could have ever imagined. Joana and her team have a knack for what they do, they’re super responsible and always on the ball, and they truly care about their work. If you want to bring one of your ideas to life online, hire this team. You won’t regret it.”

“Just to go on record that Joana Galvão and her team at Gif Design Studios were such an amazing delight to work with. They captured everything I was looking to do and executed smooth like butter!!!”

- Nicholas Kusmich

“Through her brilliant web design chops, Joana has been the evil genius behind the business transformation of my dear friend Matthew Kimberley and other big names in the online world - people who’s livelihoods depend equally on beautiful branding and high conversions. Joana’s an expert on both the user experience and the invisible strategy of a website. I’d recommend her in a heartbeat.”

- Laura Belgray


“From the first day that the new design went live, my bounce rate decreased by over 50% and the conversion rate of the main pages went up by over 40%. What’s more, Joana and the entire team at GIF were a pleasure to work with. They did what they said they were going to do, on time, and with a big smile. I have used them since and I will use them again. Highly recommended.”

- Matthew Kimberley

“Joana's design work is stunning, unique, and visionary. Not only will it get the attention of your ideal clients, it will elevate your brand to new heights and establish you as a leader in your industry!”

- Selena Soo, Business + Publicity Strategist


Joana's the only graphic designer I hired a second time. And there will soon be a third, fourth, fifth, and more.

Joana and her team are the utmost professional and efficient designers we have ever worked with. Joana was able to see our vision, hear our ideas and the team followed through with design that was up with industry trends as well as providing optimal functionality.

Our quality designed landing page for our book greatly contributed to the overall success of our launch. We were impressed with the team's communication, although we are continents apart this didn't affect the efficiency or timing of our project.

We believe that Joana's design has elevated our brand, we'd work with Joana again and again after the service and success we received.

When working with Joana, I felt as if she were inside my head. She took what I envisioned and made it a reality far beyond my expectations. Working with her and her team was a dream and has made my brand and business come to life.


Mel Wells - Actress, Health Coach, Author

I feel incredibly grateful that I found Joana. Even though we are 1000s of miles apart, me in Canada and her in Portugal, through the entire communication and design process it felt like we were often in the same room, working side by side. I think it is rare in this day and age to find someone who can completely understand and take your vision to life. This is exactly what Joana and her team did for me. They provided even more value than I paid for in terms of insight, ideas, and inspiration for my brand, my website and my business. What we came up with brings to life the warm, natural, modern feeling I was looking for. What a privilege it has been to work with this incredibly talented team.

- Kylah Dobson,


Joana's taste is flawless: she hits the nail on the head just about every time. It's rare that I send back edits.

Joana's re-envisioning of my brand was like a revelation. I didn't know what I was looking for, but Joana found it. The colors and style she created were exactly right the first time around. 

Not only does Joana deliver at the highest level, she's also friendly, reliable and great to work with. If you're looking for the right graphic designer, look no further.

- Lindsey Witmer Collins, 

When I work with Joana and her team, I know I’m in safe hands. Their work is gorgeous and their attention to detail impeccable. I’m in for the long haul!


Laura Husson, Business Architect

Joana Galvao is the rocket fuel of design. Bring her your ideas and watch her bring them to life in ways that exceed anything you can imagine.

Impact. Attention. Attitude.

I can't say enough about her. Don't think about. Just hire her. You can thank me later.

- Rebecca T. Dickson, Writing + Business coach


Joana is an incredible designer and has been an absolute dream to work with. Through our journey together - from a quiet idea to a beautiful business - she has been an immense source of beauty, inspiration and insight every step of the way. I cannot say enough about the integrity talent and kindness that Joana possesses, but I can say, in all sincerity, that she is a gifted designer, a beautiful person and I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her.

I have been working with graphic designers for years now (I am from Marketing) and I can tell you one thing, I have never worked with anyone with so much passion and talent as Joana. Someone who could clearly see what I wanted when things were all blurry for me.
