The Studio

Through the years, we’ve built a unique and collaborative team and have fine tuned our creative process to bridge the gap between brand design and business objectives. Our studio is a space tailored to the way we work and our process is tailored for success.

Our Creative Process

Rather than immediately producing an artistic expression, we use a strategic process to go from good design to successful design. The strategic branding process that we use in our studio is rooted in the proven methodology of creative problem solving. By establishing clear business goals in the beginning stages of the relationship, we paint a clear picture of what success looks like so everyone knows when it’s achieved.

Our History

Josh and Ryan had both worked in-house for a number of years when they realized that their full potential wasn’t being utilized. Being people of action with entrepreneurial spirits, they decided to join forces and founded Quill Creative Studio in the spring of 2015. The team consisted of just the two for the first nine months.

Over the years to follow, the team of creative minds has grown but the focus has stayed true to producing industry-leading and award-winning graphic design and branded initiatives. The philosophy revolves around teamwork and collaboration where egos are checked at the door. This creative process only flourishes when ideas are explored and voices are heard.

Quill has been a trusted creative partner for more than 130 companies of all sizes and industries. Whether the creative team is working to rebrand a company, create campaign materials or design an on-brand monthly mailer, we utilize design fundamentals and consistency to ensure brand success.

Today, the team is on a continual mission to bring new ideas and brand-appropriate creative solutions to its local, national, and international partners.
