Here’s what clients are saying about working with Bright Spot Studio. Their words are better than mine!

Engaging Bright Spot Studio, a.k.a. Tippi Thole’s services, in redesigning our website, branding, logo and overall presence online and in our community was one of the BEST decisions our company has made over the past year. She has an uncanny ability to listen, ask the right questions and get a handle on how to achieve a particular goal or objective in the creative space. She is easy to work with and incredibly responsive as well. We plan on continuing our relationship with her and draw upon her expertise (that also seems to have no limits) for as long as she can stand us. We cannot express adequately with words how much she means to our team as we continue to grow our business. You will not regret engaging with this star!”
Nathan Nayman, president of Tideline Marine Group

Tippi did a great job bringing our business values and personality to life through her design work, and we are thrilled with the result. But the value she brings to our business expands far beyond design. I think of Tippi as my secret agent. She is an expert copywriter, social media and SEO strategist. To boot, she is a true WordPress ninja. She helps me with things I don’t know anything about but have to know about as a small business owner. Tippi’s thoughts and insights have helped to create structure around all of our marketing initiatives and have had a true impact on our business.”
Lee Carson, owner of Hyatt Training personal training gym

Kourtney Sellers, commercial and editorial photographer

I’m now onto my second project with Tippi after a successful engagement starting from the logo/branding all the way to a fully functioning e-commerce website. Along the way Tippi has been proactive with ideas, responsive to my needs and dedicated to making the work she does stand out. She has been very cautious to make sure details are paid attention to and that we are forward thinking in our approach. I’m excited to be launching our next initiative with Tippi.”
Neer Patel, owner of the CabKing product line

Circle Yoga in Washington, DC, has been working with Tippi Thole at Bright Spot Studio for two years. She has added a huge amount of value to our business! Starting with a redesign of our logo, our layout and our look, Tippi has guided us in creating timely, eye-catching and informative marketing materials consistently and accurately. These have included quarterly schedules, print advertising, flyers, and creating a consistent look and feel on our website, in social media and in our email marketing. Class enrollments and customer retention, key measures for our business, are up because Circle Yoga has been able to reach our target audience with clarity, content and immediacy. Tippi has been great about listening to us, incorporating our values, asking questions so that she understands the big picture and even cajoling us when we stray from the brand and its message. She is excellent on all the details, including proofing her work so that our review is straightforward. Circle Yoga values Tippi as a member of our team. She is creative, technically excellent, fun to work with and is on top of deadlines.”
Sarah Brown, Director of Finance and Marketing at Circle Yoga

The word “synergy” is a cliché that is often overused to describe a successful collaboration that can achieve a 1+1=3 type result. This is exactly what Tippi Thole brings to the table. She is a gifted designer who can bring your brand into focus. She will listen to you attentively and bring your ideas to life. The end product will delight you and, most importantly, your audience. I was thrilled with the website that she created for my freelance editorial photography business. Most importantly, my clients have been impressed.”
Richard Tsong-Taatarii, editorial photographer

Tippi is an award-winning, thoughtful, creative and collaborative designer who has a never-ending supply of clever ideas and inspired approaches. What’s more, she exudes positive energy, and her cheerfulness is contagious. I have worked with Tippi as a colleague and a client and have benefited from both. The site she designed for me reflects my work and my aesthetic exactly, and I get compliments on it daily. I love working with her.”
Terri Sapienza, writer and design expert

Tippi has done great design work for Internews—she is prompt, creative and completely professional. She pays attention to detail, asks the right questions and always presents more than asked for.”
Laura Stein Lindamood, Director of Communications at Internews Network

Tippi was spot on with her analysis of my case and with her solutions. The branding update she created fits me like a glove. Also she is responsive, organized and affordable for a small business owner like myself.”
Julien Chung, illustrator

Tippi completely re-energized my photography business. Her insight, design style and attention to detail were the exact professional touch I needed to make Luxe Photography stand out in a competitive industry. I am so proud to show off my new look and feel to everyone I come into contact with. Tippi is my brand identity savior. What she provides is more than just design. She had me thinking of ways to better market Luxe Photography in a very competitive market, things I don’t think about behind the camera. If I had come to the conclusion early in my career to have Tippi do my design work, I’d have a lot more camera gear to play with now. Do it right the first time. Your brand is everything.”
Brian Sirimaturos, photographer

In the past, I always designed my own business logo and cards because I wanted to save money. The results were so-so — professional enough, but nothing exciting. This time I decided to do things right. I hired designer extraordinaire Tippi Thole of Bright Spot Studio to give my business a fresh new look. She was amazing. Not only did she create a new logo and cards for me, she helped me decide on colors and then developed a whole style guide for my brand.”
Laura Elizabeth Pohl, photographer and filmmaker

The ideal situation is when you can hire someone and just let her go. The more freedom I gave Tippi, the better she made my website. In the end, I just trusted all of the suggestions she had. Tippi was also extremely prompt, with a good turnaround for the final product as well as quick responses to emails along the way. Plus, she’s just fun to work with with! I will continue to go to her for any future website tweaks I’d like to make.”
Lindsey M. Roberts, writer and editor

I hired Tippi to design a website for me that would showcase my jewelry designs. With her keen eye for design and her sensitivity to my needs as a client, the end result is a beautiful, functional website that truly reflects my personal aesthetic. I couldn’t have asked for a better designer to collaborate with!”
Lisa Colby, jewelry maker and metalsmith

Working with Tippi was an absolute pleasure. She really listened to my needs and concerns and then came up with all these beautiful, creative solutions. She goes above and beyond. My cards and website came out better than I could have imagined and right on schedule. Her enthusiasm is infectious; it was great fun working with her!”
