TLC Creative Services, Inc. is not ordinary. We are a graphic design studio that started with traditional print design when computer-based layouts were not used everyday. We added large format signage – when it was unheard of for a small design studio to design AND print. We integrated multimedia into PowerPoint presentations – before video, audio and Flash were even considered for presentations. We focused on professional design layouts – when bullet lists were considered “design”.
TLC Creative Services is not about being the largest, most talked about, or highest budget design firm. We are a small studio with big talent. We take pride in every project, and continuously over deliver. We develop presentations that are delivered on a large scale, across multiple screens, multiple projectors, with integrated multimedia, dynamic animation and high impact visuals – definitely not the common bullet list on a blue background. Our graphic design experience and wide variety of services enables us to be a valued resource to clients, and our love and passion is reflected in every project we do.
TLC Creative Services, Inc. is a partner with many PR and communications firms, internal corporate marcomm departments, AV production companies and design agencies. We “white label” our services working as part of your organization. We allow companies to provide professional presentation/digital/graphic design services without the overhead of additional design staff, expertise training, software and hardware needs, while maximizing their company name and reputation. Our reputation is based on your achievements.
