IMPECCABLE DESIGN.

“I have worked with staff at STUDIO KAST since the firm’s inception. As their creative leader, Christy has an uncanny knack of knowing exactly what her clients need. She and her team produce incredible concepts and develop them into some of the most engaging, intuitive and gorgeous pieces I have ever seen. 

As a brand manager, I have hired STUDIO KAST in my last three positions. The team has gone above and beyond to learn each organization’s mission and goals and was able to produce spectacular pieces for me. Christy has a unique ability to take complicated information and make it user friendly. She’s interested in the user’s experience with a piece of collateral, not creating something that just looks pretty. Beyond that, she and her team have an attention to detail I’ve not experienced with other design firms. 

I would highly recommend STUDIO KAST. Their work is truly impeccable!”

SEES THE BIG PICTURE.

"STUDIO KAST is an agency that my colleagues and I return to again and again. Christy and her team are skilled in helping clients outline the scope of work by asking probing questions to help identify goals. They have creative solutions to challenges that often arise, and approach every piece with professionalism. 

STUDIO KAST is an excellent firm to use for projects that involve brand establishment, or for programs that need a full library of materials. I find that Christy really understands our big-picture strategy and goals, and can help us create the materials to get there.

Working with STUDIO KAST is like working with an extension of our in-house team— there is a true feeling of partnership. In addition, STUDIO KAST always delivers work that is on time and of a high quality. Her team is patient through multiple rounds of review and changes— a quality that we greatly value!"

RESPONSIVE AND COLLABORATIVE.

"Christy and STUDIO KAST recently created an amazing Powerpoint presentation for my law firm. Christy’s approach to helping us with the project was truly refreshing. She not only ALWAYS answered my phone calls and quickly responded to emails, she gave us a beautiful presentation that impressed our audience. I would highly recommend STUDIO KAST and certainly will use them for all of our graphic design needs."

EASY TO WORK WITH.

"You've spoiled me. Working with other design firms is akin to torture.”

STRONG PROJECT MANAGEMENT SKILLS.

"I’ve worked with Christy on several projects for the branding of our Chasing Harvest wine company. Christy and the STUDIO KAST team have incredible attention to detail, strong project management skills and a talent for coming up with clever design solutions— including the creation of our wine label recognized as one of the top designs of 2013 by Graphic Design USA and chosen for the 50th Anniversary Magazine cover. For the launch of our website, the STUDIO KAST team managed and executed the design, programming and new content management system flawlessly — making it easy and intuitive for us to update our website with new content whenever we want. STUDIO KAST helped us every step of the way and made the whole process easy and enjoyable!"

WORK THAT PERSUADES.

"STUDIO KAST’s work persuades because it is smart AND pretty. Their work is intentional—not just design for design’s sake. They do an excellent job of interpreting a brand through the lens of a particular objective to deliver creative that is effective—that provokes response. 

We leaned on STUDIO KAST to evolve our brand and bring it more in line with the changing demographics and needs of our member base. Their work influenced every component of the member experience: from a new web design to new looks for our publications and revamped brand identity standards. Everyone was thrilled with their work! It set a new tone for our organization and established a clear, relevant set of brand standards for our marketing department to follow. STUDIO KAST made an incredible impact on the AACS."
