TESTIMONIALS

“1893 Brand Studio was GREAT to work with. Thanks to your team for being so professional in your communication, work quality and deadlines. You weren’t just mere order takers, but true partners.”

Ryan Thornburg, Reese News Lab

“Before I worked with 1893 Brand Studio, I had a poorly organized blog with great content but no vision. After, I had a beautifully-designed website with a cohesive branding strategy and a simple, elegant logo that unified all of what I’m trying to do. The students were a pleasure to work with and I’m thrilled with the end result!”

Jeff Shaw, Dirty White Belt

“Working with the DTH and their photographer for our events was seamlessly very easy. They work with us to make sure we are provided with the best customer service and easily accessible content. Strategic planning with the DTH has helped us to convey our messages in a timely fashion, defining our mission and making students aware of the many services that we offer. I would highly recommend working with them for your advertising and marketing needs.”

Karen Thompson, UNC Career Services

“Thank you so much for sending both the First Look press release and the Priceless Gem story in November! They’re both terrific, and we’re especially excited about the First Look story—this program is so important to us, and Jenni did an excellent job capturing its significance. Aramide’s photos are fantastic as well! Please pass along our compliments to your staff for their hard work.
We truly appreciate your assistance in arranging this opportunity for us. Thank you!!!”
