  • Red Chalk Studios consistently exceeds our expectations. The energy and enthusiasm they bring to each project is truly inspiring.

  • We really respect Red Chalk’s work and consider them an integral part of our team. They care passionately about their creative product and want to be sure it will be effective with the target audience.

  • From start to finish, Red Chalk went well above and beyond the requested agenda, taking extra steps to better understand our design needs, products and business model so they could deliver a solution tailored to our business.

  • Red Chalk understands the online and mobile app ecosystem as well as any of the big agencies in NYC or LA. They help us not only come up with beautiful and unique user interface designs, but they also work diligently to craft the most efficient user experiences. Red Chalk Studios is the real deal – I plan on working with them for years to come.

  • When you get Red Chalk Studios in your corner, you’re not just getting the best branding specialists in the business, you’re getting a company that will help support, promote and grow your business to the top of its industry!

  • Kim Nelson is an exceptionally creative individual who understands every aspect of marketing and sales. She and her crew expertly put our clients’ messages and branding “into visuals” time and time again.

  • Whether you’re a new business just starting out or an existing company wanting to improve its identity, I think you will find Red Chalk Studios to be an invaluable partner in the process.

  • Many clients are only able to verbalize their graphics needs. Red Chalk Studio’s designers listen… Then translate ideas into unique solutions for their clients. The ability to listen, conceptualize and then create is one of their best assets.

  • Red Chalk Studios has an amazing team of talented professionals who know how to not only listen to their clients, but also exceed their clients’ expectations with cutting edge creativity.

  • I thoroughly enjoy working with Red Chalk, not only because they are a high caliber of people, but because they produce a high caliber of work through their creative output, quick turnaround and ability to create solutions for the web and social media.
