Our Motto

“It’s nice to be great, but far greater to be nice.”

We are a studio of collaborators that love working with people who love what they do, too. And while awards, recognition, and your name in lights is fun, we are more focused on building relationships and figuring out how we can help bring people, companies and organizations’ passion to life visually, and communicate their ideas effectively.

And who are our clients? People who share this philosophy; this world is a big place, with a lot of room for good. We aim to combine our clients’ expertise in what they do with our experience in design and branding to make the most impact.

It All Starts with a Conversation

Businesses and organizations come in all shapes, sizes, stages, and specialties; we build our team and our recommendations based on each client’s needs. While we can work with an existing brand, our collective expertise really shines when we partner with you on a brand building experience to bring your brand to life or back to life!

Founder & Creative Director

Having worked with large and small agencies, Alison founded Tiny Bold Creative in 2012 as a means to work directly with passionate small business owners and good-hearted organizations. Besides scootering around town (helmet hair be damned), one of her favorite things is seeing a client’s eyes light up upon seeing their vision come to life.
