Our Work Always Tells a Story

Behind every design, every message, and every solution is strategy, planning, exploration and more cups of coffee than we can count.



For over twenty years, we’ve been helping many amazing businesses and the people who run them.


It’s an honor to be trusted and valued by so many.

We take our role of being the catalyst for positive change very seriously. We aren’t here for our egos; we’re here to help, bottom line.

Every day we tackle new challenges.

We embrace the challenge in an effort to deliver more powerful, beautiful, thoughtful, purposeful, and impactful solutions. Every day we challenge ourselves to do better, to get smarter. Here are just a few examples of those efforts. Can you picture yourself here?





Brand Identity Design

Professional Logo Design That Strengthens Brands and Businesses

BRICK-AND-MORTAR RETAIL

Anderson’s

Redefining a Newport News and Virginia Beach, VA Retailer That Defies Convention

FOOD MANUFACTURING

Ashman Manufacturing

Repositioning the Producer of Some of Virginia’s Finest Sauces, Marinades and Rubs

Inspired by a delicious array of seafood sauces, marinades, BBQ sauces, hot sauces and rubs, we helped reposition Ashman’s from being “just a manufacturer” to a desirable producer of specialty foods. Don’t underestimate the power of a strategically-designed label… There’s so much more thought and effort that goes into food packaging than what you see on the shelf. And it pays off.

Music Makers

Putting a Private Music-Lesson Business in Tune


It’s always a challenge to maintain the equity and legacy of a business you’ve bought, and insert your vision to create the business you want. That’s just what we helped the new owner of Music Makers do. And in the process, we had a little fun along the way.

HOSPITALITY

Oceanfront Inn

Helping a Family-Owned Hotel Better Compete With the Big Chains


When you’re a family-owned hotel in the very popular Virginia Beach oceanfront resort area, surrounded and competing with big hotel chains — from the Hilton to Holiday Inn — marketing and delivering a unique and desirable brand experience is extremely important. We’ve been working with the great folks at the Oceanfront Inn for over decade to do just that. Their secret? Taking care of their guests like a hometown hero. Our secret? Keeping them happy.

VOLUNTEER NONPROFIT

Volunteer Rescue Squads of Virginia Beach

Increasing Donations for the Nation’s Largest Volunteer-based Rescue Squad System


We are proud of our local volunteer rescue squads, which, collectively, happen to be the largest volunteer-based rescue system in the nation. One of the ways we help, besides having a Red Chalk team member (Ellen!) run rescue one workday a week, is by managing their bi-annual collaborative fund drive. In the process, we’ve decreased their costs and increased their donations. That’s a win-win

Need help strengthening your brand and knowing where and how to focus your marketing efforts?


Take a look at these THREE POWERFUL ways we can help you do just that. (Of course, this isn’t all we do, but it’s a nice place to start.)


Brand Foundation Directive

Strengthen Your Brand with Our Brand Foundation Program at Red Chalk Studios

Having a strategically-developed Brand Foundation makes the difference between just running a business and growing a valuable, focused brand.

It’s the difference between competing smarter and being indistinguishable from everyone else. What do you want to be?

Customer Journey Mapping

Customer Journey Mapping Solutions with Red Chalk Studios

The people you’re trying to reach and convert into customers are, at any given time, on a journey.

You need to be top of mind when they have problems you can solve. If you’re not when they’re assessing options, making decisions, and determining value, then you’re off the map. And that’s not good for business.

Marketing Success Planning

Plan for your marketing success with Red Chalk Studios

We want to help you avoid costly mistakes, wasted time and lost revenue.

Before you assume what you need to implement, be it a website, advertising, social media or more, you NEED TO KNOW the big picture of what, where, when, why, who and how before making investment decisions.
