The most effective design is not a pretty picture, but a memorable tag line and image that stops them in their tracks. Got Milk?

- C. Bell


In the initial building stages of our business ToolStudios helped us establish and maintain a solid brand which provided us the presence of a much larger, established company. This larger presence allowed us to attract clients and opportunities which less established companies could not. It is clear that the brand, the website and overall highly refined professional image significantly impacted the success of our company."

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Peak Asset Management, LLC we decided that we would like a fresh, new logo and look to our website and paper goods.  Our personnel at Peak are experts in the financial services that we provide to our clients but not in branding , so we turned to Charlie Bell at Tool Studios.  He worked personally with us to fully understand our business and culture.  He then, using our input, created an updated look and feel that portrays Peak Asset Management, LLC  to our current and prospective clients in a way of which we are proud.  The feedback has been extremely positive. Thanks Charlie!"

Charlie and his team at Tool did a tremendous job of creating a branding package that matched our desired identity while adding an element of creativity.  It has been over five years since we adopted our new brand and it feels as current and up to date today as when if was first launched."

I've had the pleasure of working with TS and found them to be refreshingly creative. Full of great ideas for any type of business looking for a cutting edge look. Wonderful people with big ideas at ToolStudios!

Real estate professionals are struck with a difficult decision with regards to personal web sites. There are companies that offer "off the shelf" solutions that are functionally adequate but aesthetically challenged. They do not work to support the brand of the individual and subsequently don't tie in with the realtor's overall branding message.  Charlie and his team at ToolStudios have a deep understanding of the concept of branding and messaging and how that affects the consumer.  They diligently worked to communicate what I felt I wanted to say and in the process helped me refine my vision. As a result, I feel that I got tremendous value from what they had created; it is not only functionally superior but also supports my place in a competitive market. I would recommend them without hesitation.

I have been working with ToolStudios for over three years, and have recommended them to friends who are now satisfied clients as well.

I am absolutely delighted with both the work that Tool produces as well as working through the creative process with Tool's staff.

When people ask me why I am so satisfied with ToolStudios, my answer is always the same.

"With most creative service professionals, you need to choose two of these three: reasonable price, timely delivery, and great creativity. ToolStudios gives you all three!"

In working with Charlie Bell, I felt like I had not only a great design artist at my disposal, but a trusted advisor.  He was accessible, honest and thoughtful during my entire project, even when it was difficult for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  As with any design project, there were bumps in the road.  But with Charlie, they were always handled with professionalism, respect and humor. ToolStudios created a site that constantly garners compliments from those who see it and orders from those who visit.  Having the opportunity to work with Charlie not only gave me a phenomenal site that I'm proud to call my own, but a respect for someone who was able to visualize my dream and make it into reality.  And for that, I'm forever grateful.

One of the things that impresses me the most about ToolStudios' approach isn't just the forward thinking design—it's that the creative team is driven to find ways for their clients to better engage their own customers on a number of different levels. From interactive web presences to public relations campaigns, I see time and again strong foundations built around serving the customer. You see the basis for those innovative foundations at work every time you step into ToolStudios.

Working with Charlie and ToolStudios has been an absolute pleasure. Charlie’s well thought out process of helping develop a brand, really allowed for us to navigate the process clearly. During the entire process Charlie was able to bring his creativity to the table, helping push our ideas and discussions in the right direction. He understood where we wanted to go and took us there. Charlie and his team have continued to help us manage the brand and have always been very responsive and accommodating. Just about everything about working with them has been easy and produced great results. It would be hard to imagine a more straightforward process and successful outcome.
