Our Work, Their Success

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?

RETAIL

Anderson’s

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.

Belmont Peanuts

Growing a Peanut Empire in the Heart of Virginia Peanut Country


We count ourselves very lucky to work with the Marks family at Belmont Peanuts. Our collaborative relationship has produced packaging and marketing solutions that continue to “wow” their customers. It does help that their peanuts are mighty fine.

NONPROFIT

Edmarc

Repositioning a Nonprofit That Displays Their Heart Proudly, Every Day


When an organization evolves and its vision grows, changes are sometimes necessary. But that’s not always an easy decision. When we worked with Edmarc to strengthen their brand positioning, and along with it, developed a new identity system, we needed to be sensitive to their origin story and the equity they had built. But we were up for the challenge. And they were thrilled.

NONPROFIT

Meals on Wheels of Virginia Beach

Repositioning to Better Feed Their Brand


Running a small, yet vital, community nonprofit is always challenging, even when you’ve been doing it for almost 50 years. Helping Meals on Wheels of Virginia Beach find their voice and reposition themselves more strongly has given them the tools they needed to raise serious awareness and much-needed funds.

EDUCATION

Music Makers

Helping Tune a Private Music-Lesson Business


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.

RESTAURANT

Philly Cold Cuts

Rebranding a Local’s Favorite and Positioning it for Growth


It’s not always an easy decision to rebrand a family business that has experienced decades of success. But when your vision is on growth and expansion, it’s sometimes necessary. And when you have multiple family members involved, it’s not aways an easy process. But working with the Fuller brothers as they took over the reins from their father, and helping them fulfill and exceed their vision has been an incredible journey. And they definitely bring the yum!

ENTERTAINMENT, NONPROFIT

Symphonicity

Helping Our Hometown Orchestra Resonate with New Audiences


When a new maestro takes the baton and steps in front of an orchestra, he brings with him a new vision. In 2016, Red Chalk Studios was brought onboard to help bring that new vision to fruition and to elevate Symphonicity’s marketing efforts. It’s been a journey of love, passion and most excellent music.

RETAIL

The Aromatherapy Shoppe

Redesigning Product Packaging To Help a Small Business Get Noticed by Big Stores


Helping small businesses is a passion of ours. And when the owners of The Aromatherapy Shoppe approached us in need of a graphic designer and better product packaging so they could get into larger markets such as Whole Foods Market, we were delighted to take on the task.

FIRST RESPONDERS, 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.

Customer Journey Mapping

Customer Experience Journey Mapping 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

Marketing Success Planning 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.
