Hi, I’m Vip: founder & designer.
Hi, I’m Vip! I work with organizations of all sizes: from high-growth startups (Y-Combinator, 30U30, Inc5000 alums) to Fortune 100 companies (PEPSICO, JCPenney, AHA) – even venture funds & investment banks.
I’ve raised funding myself, and designed slides that closed billions for my clients:
- seed to Series D+ rounds from blue-chip VCs like Tiger Global & Khosla Ventures,
- national distribution deals with the likes of Southern Glazers, Starbucks & Walmart,
- $100M+ investment funds (from VC & PE firms, to RE, crypto & quant funds),
- even mergers & acquisitions of publicly-traded companies.
Quick, affordable & proven approach
My process is quick (just a few business days to first draft), affordable (flat-fee rates), and proven by hundreds of happy clients, who have closed billions collectively.
Don’t trust faceless agencies, get 1-on-1 expertise
Unlike most agencies (who may delegate your work to inexperienced interns & analysts), I don’t have any team: you’ll always work directly with me 1-on-1, with my personal touch from start to finish. My background as both a designer & VC-backed founder lends the unique skillset & experience necessary to craft winning pitches.
I look forward to a chance to create something amazing together! PS. If you’d still like to know more, I invite you to read more about me below:
My clients have closed $2B in funding from the likes of Tiger Global, Khosla Ventures & Y-Combinator, as well as deals with Starbucks, Walmart & Southern Glazers:

Forbidden Spirits ($3.6M)

RangeForce is an interactive and hands-on team cyber readiness platform. Helped design their Series A pitch collateral.

Our friends at Scythe Robotics (Thiel Fellowship & Forbes 30u30 alums) have been collaborators for years — I’ve helped design a wide variety of collateral: ranging from pitch decks to the company website.

Created the pitch deck that helped Advano raise their seed round after exiting the prestigious Y-Combinator accelerator program. Advano is pioneering next-generation batteries that are 10× more effective than today’s options.
Unlike most other designers…
I’ve raised VC funding myself.

Skills & Service
Much more than a pretty presentation.
Close deals faster.
Investors & decision-makers see 5000+ slide decks every year—will your pitch stand out?
Why choose Vip:
Tap into insider knowledge: I’ve created decks that have won billions for both startups and VCs — plus raised funding for my own ventures. I’ve spent years perfecting what it takes to win funding.
I personally design, research & craft your deck, and work 100% solo. Don’t trust agencies that may outsource your deck to inexperienced interns / jr. designers who never raised funding.
$2B track record
More than design: a proven approach that has helped close millions in startup funding (pre-seed to Series D+), investment funds (Fund 1 – 5), as well as retail/distribution deals.
You’ve got one shot.
Investors are busy. Prospects are unforgiving. Which way will you go: a boilerplate PowerPoint template, or the expert trusted by Fortune 500 companies & award-winning (ie. YC, 30u3o) startups? The choice is yours. Close deals faster and easier with slides you can trust, from Vip.
Do you just do design, or content / storytelling too?
Both. My expertise is at the intersection of creative communications & business strategy: I’m a designer who has raised funding myself and I’ve spent years perfecting the formula for a winning pitch deck.
I not only help organize & design your pitch to captivate, but also offer insight & research to flesh out your business plan.
Storytelling is a big part of what I do for decks: both in terms of communication & copy, and deeper questions of business context (e.g. market size, recent transactions, competitive landscape) and execution (e.g. go-to-market).
My approach & understanding of go-to-market & financial strategy is informed by experience collaborating with investment funds & financial institutions, as well as being founder of my own startups (from which I have personal experience raising VC funding).
On the other hand, my background & skillset as a graphic designer offers a visual storytelling approach to concisely & effectively communicate your pitch.
How long does it take? How does pricing work?
The process usually takes 12 business days (four to five to 1st draft, remainder for revisions)—although, I can deliver on rush timelines if needed (options as quick as three business days).
There are no surprise charges with revisions, as I charge a flat fee, agreed upon before the start of work. For pricing details or to get a quote, get started here.
Who creates the deck?
Me, Vip. No outsourcing or delegating to a faceless team. I handle 100% of the pitch deck creation myself: including graphic design, storytelling strategy, and market research.
Don’t trust agencies that will delegate your pitch to designers & analysts with no fundraising experience — collaborate 1-on-1 with me from start to finish to craft your perfect pitch.
Looking to create your pitch deck on your own?
If you’re not looking for bespoke services and would rather create your pitch deck yourself, you may find these resources helpful:
Can I see sample work?
