Brand Development

But branding is more than the visual identity of your company. Everything you do, especially customer facing, must work together to generate a trusted brand for both new customers and retention.

Business Strategy

Do you ever wonder why some companies are successful and perform better than others? Or why some are hard to beat and others are not? Well, if a company wants to stay competitive in the industry, it must create and execute a strategy that is good and sound. A strategy includes your company's goals and objectives, the type of products/services that you plan to build, the customers who you want to sell to and the markets that you serve to make profits.

Inside the Studio

Darin Sims, President

Darin founded Studio D with the goal of "redesigning the outdoors" back in 2010. With over 20 years in design, marketing and business consulting, he brought his talent and experience to the outdoor world and has established Studio D as a leader in strategic design, brand development and quality video production. His experience and hands on approach lets him understand your business needs before transforming them into a company image that sets you apart from your competitors. A long time business owner, Darin has worked on numerous large scale projects with Fortune 500 companies as well as state and local governments, and Studio D now has over 300 clients across North America.

"I came into the outdoor industry from the business side and soon found areas that I knew I could help companies in. I was told 'the outdoor industry isn't like others', and to some degree that is true, but business is business.  It was just a matter of learning the nuances and dynamics of how the industry works, which I had done in many other industries throughout my career. At that point you are able to pinpoint how you can help companies grow and succeed. When you provide services of any type, you must be able to adapt and continuously look at what you do and how you do it. Improvement always comes from looking inward, not outward. Trying to emulate someone else always leaves you playing the role of follower. Studio D was built on being different, and that is still what drives us everyday."
