Alicia K Designs is a team of expert designers, producers, and vendors that work tirelessly to create events that are spectacular to attend and thoroughly you.
We get to know our clients as much as possible so we can advocate for you and answer questions before you even have to ask them. Most importantly, we meet you where you’re at. Some clients love to be hands-on and involved in every decision. Others want to hand off planning completely. We’re great with either.
We hold ourselves to a high standard not just in events, but in running a responsible business as well. Here are some of the ways we give back to ensure a rich, equitable community.
Mentorship: In addition to running the business, Alicia mentors junior members of the team, empowering them with the skills they need to succeed in their area of specialty.
Regular team volunteer opportunities
Pro-bono work helping fundraise and plan community events, including working with Oakland Unified and Covenant House of California
Alicia volunteers as a party coordinator with the Birthday Party Project, a nonprofit that throws birthday parties for children experiencing homelessness.
“Alicia’s ability to design and execute projects of all sizes, often with extremely last minute changes and requests, is unparalleled. She is unflappable in the most stressful of situations, but one of her greatest qualities is how she interacts with all levels of personnel in the Warriors organization. Whether it be the load in crews, security staff, mid level and top level executives, Alicia treats everyone with the utmost respect.”
“In the hands of Alicia and her incredible team, anything is possible, with ease and flawless coordination.”
“We will never forget the sight of you standing on a chair in the catering tent, in your mud-spattered white jeans, clipboard in hand, patiently explaining the rehearsal details as the rain pounded on the canvas. None of us doubted that everything would go off the next day without a hitch as long as you were in charge.”
In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic decimated our industry, forcing more than 12 million people in leisure, hospitality, and live events out of work. Many of those out of jobs were small business owners or freelancers, meaning they had little in the way of a safety net. When we saw our industry family suffering, we took action, forming the California Events Coalition.
The California Events Coalition supports career event professionals with advocacy, resources, and action to curb the devastating effects of COVID-19.
