Branding & Design

Uptown Studios started in 1992 as a graphic design studio. Great graphic design is at the core of all that we create. We want you to be captivated with the things we design. We want you to touch them, pick them up, read them, be inspired by them, click on the buttons, and take action. Everything we do is created to entice you, the user, to do something. If you thought of your brand as a person, who would it be? Having a clearly defined brand image has become essential to long-term success. Uptown Studios can work with you and your team to give your branding and design an identity people will want to connect with.

Philanthropic Giving Strategy

Uptown Studios is ready to work with your team and create a Corporate Visibility and Community Impact Strategy for your company. At our core, we believe that corporate giving to our community is one of the best marketing tools ever. We will create a tailored community impact plan that provides the highest level of return on investment.

This is accomplished through identifying nonprofit agencies and events that yield the most visibility, community impact, “buzz” and social impact for the dollars invested. We will act on your behalf to negotiate benefits above and beyond the normal listed event sponsorship benefits and will seek to create year-round relationships with charities, not one time event publicity and sponsorship.

ADA Compliance

At Uptown Studios, we create Designs for Social Change. Part of designing for social change is ensuring our designs are accessible for all people! To do this, we design, develop, and maintain ADA compliant websites. That means checking web elements like page layout, subtitles, user controls, text and color usage, and more!
