The San Francisco Giants are one of the most iconic brands in America and nobody has been more responsible than Nancy Donati.  Her creative  fingerprints are everywhere you look, from team and promotional logos to ballpark signage and displays, to art exhibits to historical memorabilia, to every publication design. Nancy has been the driving force behind every visual aspect of the franchise.


I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with her over a 10-year period when she reported to me when I served as Vice President, Communications during the team’s transition from Candlestick Park to the new ballpark in China Basin.  I found Nancy to be the ultimate professional, so easy to work with—despite having to meet countless deadlines under constant pressure—and just a warm, wonderful person.  


If you’re looking for exceptional results and want to interface with a cooperative, talented agency, I cannot recommend anyone more highly than Nancy Donati.  She’s simply the best.

Former PR Executive with the Giants, A’s, Stanford, Cal and the NFL

Working with Nancy on San Francisco Giants projects over the past 18 years has been an exceptionally positive experience for me and my team.


In her role as Vice President of Creative Services she engaged us in the development and production of the Portwalk History Walk commemorative  plaques, the O’Doul mural with it’s yearly updates and a range of other creative projects such as special awards and fundraising items.


In these projects she played a stimulating role not a just the client but also as a team member. Together we have succeeded in the creation of iconic work for the SF Giants.


Her strength lies in bringing exceptional typographic knowledge and experience to the design as well as great interpersonal skills that bring out the best in the artists she is working with.

Nancy Donati has been the creative force and design guru for one of the most admired and successful sports brands in America: the San Francisco Giants Baseball Club. After almost three decades of being one of the best at what she does, Nancy has decided to become a free agent.


Her creative talent, design sensibilities and story-telling fingerprints are most impressively on display everywhere at the Giants heralded waterfront ballpark, but her contributions as a creative resource and collaborator can best be told by the people who have had the benefit of working with her.  As the longtime marketing/business and “idea guy” with the Giants for over 30 years, I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with Nancy for two decades. 


What she does is impressive, but how she does it is what separates her from others. Nancy combines her collaborative listening skills and superior creative instincts to always develop appropriate outcomes. She can deliver both big and small solutions with flair and do it on time and on budget.  


Do you have an important story to tell?  Let Nancy Donati do what she does best. She always delivers without seeming to break a sweat and is a pleasure to work with. Please contact me if I can clarify or amplify Nancy’s qualifications.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nancy Donati for many years on the publication of Giants magazine. The words that immediately come to mind in describing her are, creative, committed, professional and fun to work with. Nancy always delivers the very best. If an innovative, quality outcome is your end goal, Nancy is perfect for the execution.
