About Us


MB Design is an award-winning graphic design firm specializing in the sports industry, with the ability to take graphic design from concept to finished product in a timely, cost-effective manner. MB Design works with clients on an as-needed basis. We only do as much or as little as you need, and we make sure we fit it into your schedule, on your budget.

The Competitive Edge:

Maggie Oren and her design team have worked in the sports industry for more than 25 years, and know the ins and outs of every aspect of sports publications. After working for the Sports Information office at the University of Nevada for five years, Maggie interned with the Stanford Athletics Media Relations office for one year. She then went on to work for Cobb Hogue Creative, a design firm specializing in sports publications with clients such as Stanford University, Santa Clara University, The Oakland Raiders, San Jose Earthquakes, San Jose SaberCats, and the then-newly formed WUSA team the San Jose CyberRays. After the company dissolved Maggie formed her own company, maintaining her contacts with both Stanford and Santa Clara University, and forming her own client relationships with USC, UCLA, University of the Pacific and the Pac-10 Conference. The team of MB Design is well versed in all forms of desktop publishing, including Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and QuarkXpress. The company has a downloadable ftp site, making it easy to transfer large documents, and uses Adobe Acrobat for all proofs, allowing the proofing process to be quick and easy. The files are always press-ready, and MB Design is able to manage the printing process as well.

Just a few of the projects MB Design has done in the past include:

• Design work for 28 of Stanford’s varsity sports, including football, women’s basketball, and NCAA Champions track and field, cross country and women’s volleyball. Other Stanford clients include the athletic marketing department and the development office, in charge of alumni relations, donations and scholarships

• Posters for UCLA athletic marketing – football, men’s and women’s water polo, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball. Also the women’s volleyball media guide cover and the John Wooden Court Dedication poster.

• 410 page 2003 USC football media guide, women’s volleyball media guide cover, including the 2003 and 2004 NCAA Champion Trojan Football Team

• Poster, media guides and schedule cards for Santa Clara. The 2003 Santa Clara Tennis media guide cover was awarded “Best cover in the Nation” by CoSida

• Posters, schedule cards, postcards and fund raising brochures for The University of the Pacific

• NCAA game programs

• Game/meet programs

• Marketing flyers, newsletters and ticket applications

• Magazine and Newspaper Ads

  2. Complete redesign of the Giving Program’s flyer for Stanford Athletics

Because the design team is familiar with the sports industry, and the process involved in creating a publication, MB Design is the ideal working partner to cope with tight deadlines and challenging situations while still giving you the best quality work.

We look forward to working with you!

What They’re Saying about MB Design

"MB Design is a first-class operation. They know the design business in and out, and are true professionals. I am consistently pleased with the products they produce, and most importantly, the jobs are always done on time."

Scott Leykam

Associate Commissioner/External Relations

West Coast Conference

"We are thrilled with our relationship with MB Design. They are able to accommodate virtually any need we have with a high degree of professionalism, creativity and flexibility. We are often under tight deadlines and are limited in our selection of artwork, but MB Design always turns out a product that reflects the high quality Santa Clara University Athletics expects."

Richard Kilwein

Former Associate Athletic Director, External Services

Santa Clara University

"Maggie Oren of MB Design has been involved in the design of several of our publications, including the covers of the media guides for USC’s 2003 and 2004 national championship football teams. She is a talented, creative designer who works quickly and takes direction easily. Quite frankly, we are fairly demanding clients and we make Maggie jump through a lot of hoops during the design process. But she is unflappable and always come through in a timely manner with what we have conceptualized. By doing so, she makes the design process seamless."

Tim Tessalone

Sports Information Director, USC

"Maggie and MB Design’s expertise with designing promotional material has been an important asset for the Bruins’ sports marketing campaign. Reliability and Creativity are the most important qualities when working with a designer and MB Design excels in both areas. We just give Maggie a couple of ideas, and she runs with it. The finished product is always impressive!"

Cassidy Moore

Marketing, UCLA

"The work that MB Designs did for the University of the Pacific Athletic Department this past year in developing attractive, eye-catching and unique designs was just fabulous. We received so many compliments from our fans, student-athletes and coaches on our posters, schedule cards, postcards and brochures. MB Designs ability to turn things around quickly, while developing beautiful and unique designs was impressive. I also appreciated the fact that they were able to work within the budget of relatively small athletic department. I am looking forward to working with them on many more projects in the near future."

Georgia Kovich

Director of Athletic Marketing, University of the Pacific
