In the Spring of 2009, in the middle of a recession, Tad Carpenter officially kicked open the doors to start a new design and branding studio. Over the last ten years, our team team has expanded along with our passion for design. We love design. We love the clients we get the opportunity to work with and truly hope we get to continue doing this for 100 more years. Thank you to everyone and anyone who has ever worked with us, collaborated with us, inquired to work with us or supported us in anyway at all. Thank you!
It has been a dream come true to be a part of the team behind Made in the Middle—a design and creative conference celebrating creatives from the Midwest. We recently wrapped up our 2018 conference in Kansas City, Missouri which included amazing parties, a full day of 10+ workshops followed by a full day of inspiring lectures from 7 creative leaders from around the country.

Every year we design something for the holidays to send to our friends, clients and loved ones. In the past we have designed board games, design and packaged toffee, made letterpress greeting cards sets and ornaments.
