Maelin Levine | Partner/Designer

MaeLin’s work has been nationally recognized and was awarded the prestigious AIGA Fellow Award in 2008. Originally from Leadville, Colorado, Levine holds a BFA in Graphic Communications Design from the University of Denver and participated in the AIGA professional program at Harvard Business School. 

MaeLin recently lead a team to submit THE WINNING BID for San Diego/Tijuana to be designated the World Design Capital 2024.

MaeLin is the incoming board president (2nd time) for the San Diego Chapter of AIGA – the professional association for design. In that role she was part of the team that envisioned and launched the Y Conference, now in it’s 25th year, and developed the first ever international chapter of the organization.

MaeLin is the Founder and President of the Board of Trustees of the Urban Discovery Schools (TK-12) – a highly successful K-12 charter school. This unique learning environment integrates the creative DNA of Visual Asylum into its curriculum and character development programs. Levine is also a design instructor at UCSD Extension, where she developed the new certificate program in Communications Design.

Levine’s hallmark style incorporates bold use of color and whimsical touches, and she is inspired by Alexander Girard, Charles & Ray Eames, Edith Head, folk art, toys, dolls, fabric and paper. Collaborative by nature, MaeLin appreciates working with clients who challenge the status quo and value the big picture
