dorothyDorothy Ryan,

why | Why studio d? Because we are focused on serving the creative needs of the customers we know best: in-house marketing departments and small- to mid-size businesses that operate without the luxury of a dedicated marketing staff.

For the busy in-house marketing department we can provide a fresh perspective on how to approach a new project or be the extra set of hands to take the project to the finish line.

For the small business owner, we can be the creative arm you need to breathe life into your vision by developing your brand identity and articulating your competitive edge; engaging customers and building business. 

When you work with studio d you will find a dedicated creative partner who listens to your ideas, understands your challenges and delivers high quality, professional services at a fraction of the cost of a large agency. Moreover, as your company grows we can guide you in the best practices for developing your own marketing staff and creative department.

who | Dorothy Ryan, a passionate marketer, pragmatic problem solver and seasoned creative director, started studio d in 2001. With more than 20 years of hands-on experience in every facet of marketing communications, Dorothy infuses the company with the studio d hallmarks: ideas with impact; precision execution; and an overarching respect for the client’s time, budget and company culture.

where | Studio d is located just north of Chicago in Lincolnshire, Illinois. We work with clients literally “right next door” and, as far away as sunny California but our favorite place is working shoulder to shoulder, head to head with clients to take their communications—and company—to the next level.

Come inside. Look around and see for yourself
what ideas can do.
