“Thanks so much to Studio490 for helping us update or “recreate” our website. It had gone untouched for over 10 years, and now it’s new and fresh. Josh and Tj worked with me on creating a website that really reflects our company; we added new products and links, so now we can direct our customers right to our site. Tj was super easy to work with, we worked well with each other, sharing ideas and images. I appreciate the time and dedication you put into helping us create a wonderful new website. I look forward to keeping it up to date with you in the future.”

Laura Cheshire, Owner & Sales Manager, Triangle Communications, LLC

I’ve worked with Tj and Studio490 for several years now on a range of projects from local startups to international non-profits. Studio490 always makes time to be responsive and attentive to the project and communicates effectively to help set expectations. While they offer an incredible range of creative services, I believe the value they offer from an experience standpoint is off the charts. I would highly recommend using them for any of your creative business needs.

Greg Cash | Investor

Congratulations to the whole team at Studio490 for celebrating 15 years in business. As you know companies don’t stay in business and continue growing for this long without positive feedback and responses from their existing customers. You can count Industrial Communications as one of your many “Raving Fan” customers.

As a company and individually your team continually provides innovative and current solutions to our sometimes urgent requests in a pleasant and always timely manner. The technology in keeping our brand, digitally in front of our narrowly targeted desired customers is a constantly moving target with the parameters continually changing with Ad Words, Bing, and other platforms. Your experts know how to tweak the logarithms and your designers produce choices for our time-sensitive promotions and website content quickly and professionally.

After searching for the personal, expert touch for many years we are so happy to have found Studio490 over 5 years ago. You haven’t missed a beat!

Kevin Barry | Industrial Communication

Studio490 is a fantastic company to work with! Great support from beginning to end of the process of building our new website. The team took great care to hear what our needs, concerns, and ideas were, and they went the extra mile at every stage. I would recommend them unreservedly.

Terri Crites | COO, SMS Tech Solutions

I wanted you to know that almost all referrals we are getting right now are from Google searches. Seems like our social media marketing is keeping us at the top of the Google algorithm. Great work!

Gregg M. Cole, CPA, MBA, CITP | Cole & Company, PC

When we reached out to TJ and his team from Studio490 to upgrade our website, we did so with great anticipation. As a very specialized integrative neurological practice that serves clients from throughout the

Carolinas and beyond we have a unique niche, and we wanted professional help in designing a website that could convey what we are about. We had scheduled meetings with TJ and his team

in which our goals for the website were clearly laid out. We received valuable recommendations and support every step of the way and, in record time, we were able to have our Brain Restoration Clinic website (BRC) published. Not only did studio490 meet BRC’s expectations, but they also surpassed them by far. I will therefore be recommending studio490 to all my friends in the medical community that need help with developing or upgrading their website.

Jean-Ronel Corbier, MD | Neurologist and medical director of the Brain Restoration Clinic

Thank you for all of the expertise that you and your team showed us. We grew tremendously with your help and achieved success in areas we hadn’t done previously. On top of that, your professionalism from start to finish is unmatched.

Bill Fivek | President and CEO of TMC

Studio490 has surpassed our expectations! Rebuilding a website was a daunting task. From the first conversation to the website going live, Studio490 made us feel like our every desire for the site was their only priority. Even when we asked for changes, they honored our requests with speed and professionalism. Thank you, Studio490 for delivering an excellent product! You made a daunting task very manageable. We couldn’t be happier with the job you have done.

Andy Zawacki | Principal Arborbrook Christian Academy

We at Industrial Communications have been extremely happy with the level of professionalism, ethics, technical expertise, and skill that we have found in forming our relationship with Studio 490 over the past five years. Having a high level of trust in any of our vendors is very important to us. This allows us not to expend time and effort that we wouldn’t have the bandwidth for to babysit or second guess our partner companies. They have helped us in creative, timely, and cost-effective ways with our website, special promotions projects, logos, and SEO. Their professionalism, knowledge, and customer service are a rare find. We give our highest recommendation to this team of professionals.

Jayme Barry | Industrial Communications

“I cannot say enough about Tj and the Studio490 team. They simply are amazing! The quality of their work far outweighs any of the costs. For the past 3 years, Studio490 has built 2 customized websites for us, designed all our social media, produced all our digital marketing and print ads, and partnered with us on countless projects. They always over-deliver and far exceed our expectations.

As a small business owner, I am very grateful to have a partner like Tj and Studio490. They have helped us build the professional image we need to attract customers while still helping us stay within a reasonable budget to be successful. Thanks, Tj and Studio490 for being great partners and always exceeding our expectations! We love you guys!!”

Jorge Martinez | President, Kalina’s Fitness

“The Studio490 team is AMAZING! We have worked with them for years and they have consistently developed wonderful design work for our print and web clients. Not only that but they are reasonably priced, have high morals and a quick turn around time. If you aren’t working with Studio490, you should!”

Daniel Trimpey | CEO, Page Progressive

“We did not make the decision to switch to Studio490 as our new web site designer lightly. We wanted to work with a firm that is as devoted to an exceptional client experience as we are for our wealth management clients. Throughout our time with them, Tj and Dana lived up to what they said they would do when we had met with them during our due diligence. They worked patiently with us to implement our ideas and also suggested some things we had not even considered. We are all thrilled with our new website. I recommend Studio490 to anyone who needs a website design partner and am happy to speak with you about our experience.”

Whit Wilks | Director, Novare Capital Management

“I was actually referred to TJ and Dana by some very dear friends of mine. I worked with several companies, in the past, and have had some challenges of various sorts. From the moment we connected I knew that they were the right team for the job. They took the time to listen, were extremely professional and friendly, but had the chops and resources to get the job done incredibly well. I can’t say enough about how impressed I have been working with this team. I expect to have a lifelong relationship with this company and their principles. Thank God for good friends, and solid referrals.”

Marcus D. Dilley | CEO & Owner, Carolina Realty Group

“Working with Studio490 to develop and produce our video was one of the best decisions we have made from a marketing perspective! They really took the time to listen to our feedback and they helped make suggestions along the way to improve the overall quality of the video. I highly recommend Studio490 to any organization looking to engage a marketing firm for video marketing. They made our staff feel comfortable and relaxed when shooting and they were just an overall great team to work with during the entire project. Thanks, Studio490!”

Matthew Lewis | Vice President & COO, ProvidaStaff, LLC

“Studio490 has been absolutely fantastic to work with. I could not have imagined a better experience with a graphic design team. TJ and the team fully engaged our product and our mission, and patiently listened before quickly producing the images and overall look and feel we were always after. To sum them up in two words would be creative and critical. Studio490 takes personal pride in their work, and they thrive on working with us collaboratively in creating products that are truly our own. We are privileged and excited to be connected to such a great group. Thanks so much, guys!”

Dee Lanier | Google Teaching Extraordinaire

“Being a physician in a large practice, my medical group needed a comprehensive website to assist our patients and be attractive to future patients. Studio490 put together an outstanding website for us that has been easy for patients to use to learn about our practice, and the individual services offered, and to introduce them to the physicians. But I wanted to further personalize the website for my own patient population, so I asked Studio490 to put together an informative video that dealt with a delicate subject matter in men’s health that I often treat patients for.

The video that Studio490 created for me surpassed my expectations by far in what I envisioned that my patients would have access to view. The quality of the video is outstanding, and TJ Todd and his staff did a superb job in how I wanted to present the subject manner to patients in a confident, informative, and compassionate manner.

Being a novice to videos and web-based technology, TJ guided me through the whole process and provided excellent advice on what he thought I was hoping to accomplish, and he did not disappoint! Furthermore, Studio490 was always prompt with their response and answers to my requests and questions, made considerable adjustments and travel on short notice to make a video just how I wanted it, and did all this for what I felt was a very reasonable cost.

Thank you TJ and all of your staff at Studio490 for providing me and my practice, as well as my patients, with an outstanding website, and an informative video. I would not hesitate to use you again and would recommend Studio490 to any business entity, large or small.”

Michael B. Pryor, MD | The Urology Center of Spartanburg

“When you are building a business there are just some points in the process where working with a vendor just won’t cut it. What you need is a partner. A partner is someone whose behaviors demonstrate a sense of ownership in both the product and the outcome.

Studio490 is a shop that partners. At every level of design and at every contact point my brand evokes emotion and inspires action on the part of the customer. And it doesn’t stop there. A logo, a website, SEO, social media- all of these things are just products or tools. What really matters is how these things are used to draw customers to your business.

And that is what sets Studio490 apart. From the first meeting, TJ and Dana were intent on learning about the nature of my business as well as my short and long-term goals. Results, and by that, I mean bottom-line business outcomes, really matter to them. So if you are looking for fantastic design and marketing savvy, but you also need a real partner attitude, do yourself a favor and look no further than Studio490.”

Terri Anne Hintz | Certified Funeral Celebrant

“I cannot thank you enough. Your patience and experience were exactly what I needed to push me to the next level. It is amazing how you were able to make my vision become a reality through web design. If anyone ever has a doubt about whether to use Studio490… “DO IT.” You will not regret it. The Studio490 team goes above and beyond expectations to deliver a customer service experience that is more than you could ever pay for.

Thank you so much TJ and Dana”

Rhonda Piggee | MS, CSP, Safety Piggee

“Okay, can I just say OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE IT! wasn’t sure what I was looking for, but here is what I saw and felt when I looked at it: The first page drew me in. It told me this company is excited to help you. This company is excited about its products. The training demo on the first big picture is awesome. The TMC-featured event is fantastic. We always have something going and perfect placement. Then the featured products for the month are perfect. I have been wanting to feature products in some way just wasn’t sure how to.

I feel like the store drew me in and said I need to buy something from this store; it is what I need; I will be satisfied with my purchase; this company is professional and knows what it is doing! I felt the call to action. I like how it works simply and looks like our website just like our blog. Very professional!”

Nichole Eaton | Business Dev & Marketing Manager, Total Medical Compliance

“A friend of mine recommended Studio490 and I am so happy that I listened to him. Not only did we have Studio490 set up everything for the Lean Teen Program including business cards, stickers, internet marketing, and design work for our print ads, but we also converted our website and blog from GoDaddy and Blogger to WordPress. The final product Tj and his team delivered were amazing! Now the Lean Teen Program has the professional image that I was hoping for.

Through this experience, there was no lack of complications. However, Studio490 faced every challenge head-on and worked hard to deliver a product that I can truly stand behind and that will give our affiliates the edge they need to operate a successful program. If you need a top design company that can do it all, I highly recommend Tj and his team. Thank you, Tj! I am grateful for your dependability, integrity, determination, and cost-effectiveness, and look forward to a long relationship with you and Studio490!”

Jorge Martinez | President, Lean Teen Program

“TJ and Dana have always been a pleasure to do business with. They didn’t have to read the textbook on the taking care of their client, they just naturally live it every day. Both bring complementary skills to the table for an overall package deal. Studio490 uses their small size to their (and my) advantage. We used them for our social media campaign which has gone well and as a small business myself, I needed a very competitively priced set of services. TJ, Dana and their team behind the scenes have delivered.”

Rod Springhetti | President, Topanga

“I wanted to say thank you. We have had so much trouble getting our website the way we wanted it and it looks fabulous! I am extremely happy. You guys were able to do what two different companies have failed to do so we are very pleased. Thank you, thank you!!”

Teresa Fivek | Vice President, Total Medical Compliance

“TJ and his staff have been a pleasure to work. We communicated well (which is number one to me) and they were very prompt with their response to questions and getting the work done. I am very pleased we choose Studio490 to do our web project as it was done timely and TJ delivered everything he said he would. I would recommend Studio490 to do anyone’s web project.”

Nichole Eaton | Business Dev & Marketing Manager, Total Medical Compliance

“I wanted one company that could do it all – web design, SEO, and maintenance; design marketing literature for print ads and the web; write and distribute press releases; produce newsletters; take professional product photographs; redesign our trade show booth, and start up a blog. I was sick and tired of dealing with 4 or 5 different small companies or larger impersonal companies to do all of this. I wanted to deal with one person who takes the time to learn my technical business, listens and is responsive to my needs, makes recommendations, and is reasonably priced. I wanted a miracle!

Thank God I found Tj. He is an expert in all of those areas and he really knows small business because he has one. As a small business with closely managed overhead costs, Studio490 is able to provide services that are more cost-effective than services provided by larger firms. I was impressed with Tj’s commitment to technical excellence and to providing uncommonly responsive service. He is a very talented marketer, graphic artist, writer, web designer, and photographer. I look forward to a long relationship with Studio490!”

Denise Chew | President, Enviro-Equipment Inc.

“I wanted to take a few minutes to express how happy I have been with our relationship and with our website launch. Our website has turned into something quite complex with a great number of moving parts, and getting it up and running has been a challenge. From the very beginning, we were impressed with Studio490’s thoroughness and helpfulness. During the design process, you brought fresh ideas and helpful comments on the direction of the new site. During the development phase, you showed tenacity in keeping track of all of the details and excellent project management to keep my team on task and on schedule.

The most important thing throughout our relationship is that I can trust you to keep our project going in the right direction and you are always willing to offer input when asked. I appreciate your dedicated hard work in getting our site up and running. We are very pleased with the project, and we look forward to a continued relationship with Studio490.”

Melissa Irmen | VP, Products & Strategy, Integration Point, Inc.

“First off, your pdf is very professional and nicely presented. This is more than we have received from other graphics people and in our opinion, whether you know us or not, the presentation of your artwork and ideas should always be done the way you did.

We also appreciate receiving the logo ideas plus a rendering of how they can look on a business card. This further helped us visualize the finished product. Your presentation was far superior. The highlight effect you did is absolutely stunning, in my opinion. The logo looks so clean and refreshing before and afterward. The effect you created is subtle and did nothing to distract from the beauty of the creation itself.”

Kathee & Bill Austin | AZ High Tech Talent Partnership

“TJ is a hard worker and a pleasure to work with. He is very detailed oriented and extremely creative. He has been able to come up with very good work and very little notice. TJ is able to multitask and handle various projects at once. I highly recommend TJ for any web-oriented work that needs to be done!”

Aaron Alexander | Purchaser, Able Inc.

“Tj is a creative and innovative designer, with an eye for color, balance, and graphic styles that complement the client and the message. During the time he worked with Able, he was often asked to achieve goals that were only vaguely conceptualized. He always managed to come through with distinct, professional and exciting work to make the ideas come to life. Tj is organized and proficient at multi-tasking. His quiet humor and integrity make him a pleasure to with, and he is always proactively building his knowledge base to stay abreast of new techniques and trends. I highly recommend Tj for any graphic design, website or blog work that you want done right.”

Dana Hawman | Sales Coordinator, Able Inc.

“I found Tj to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, TJ is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He successfully took our company, with no marketing plan to be spoken of, into a new realm. His efforts included an up-to-date technology-focused website and several marketing plans for our company that has resulted in increased revenue. During his tenure, I personally received feedback from numerous customers as to the professionalism and content he developed, which in turn led to numerous new prospects which lead to new customers. The new revenue was a direct result of the plans implemented by TJ. Though he was an asset to our marketing efforts, TJ was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas of the company. I highly recommend TJ in his new endeavors. TJ is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization.

Chris Soiles | Northwest Education Sales. Able Inc.

“Tj was able to bring us out of the marketing stone age in a very short amount of time. I was surprised at how quickly he could develop images and literature that dramatically changed how we were perceived in the marketplace (and how we perceived ourselves!) He worked well with the team to develop effective marketing campaigns with our partners and greatly enhanced our image at trade shows. He also has a great sense of humor and was a lot of fun to work with. He was always professional and has a great deal of integrity.”
