About

Hi! My name is Tippi Thole, and I'm the happy owner of Bright Spot Studio

Before starting my studio, I worked for 15 years as an art director and designer for a variety of U.S. magazines and newspapers, including The Washington Post, Smithsonian magazine, Minneapolis Star Tribune and St. Louis Post-Dispatch. For the past 12 years, I've been doing business as Bright Spot Studio, working with small businesses and entrepreneurs to help them market their services and grow their businesses. I have a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Missouri at Columbia and a master's degree in visual communication from Ohio University. I've won numerous awards for my design and photography projects.

When I'm not helping clients, I'm striving to reduce my environmental impact as much as possible. You can learn about my zero waste efforts at tinytrashcan.com.
