We Exist to Help You Launch Big Ideas and Avoid Costly Mistakes.

Cardinal Studios is a team of multimedia production professionals with traditional consultancy and end-to-end agency capabilities. This means we bring a very high level of professional technical and production experience to a project but with the ability to strategically guide and consult beyond just the creative elements.

With decades of profit and non-profit experience, we’ve produced dozens of branded multimedia and print projects, courses, and curriculum supported by strategies that have reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world generating millions of dollars in revenue. 

We bring you behind the scenes and into the full process that a studio or publisher normally guards from the outside. 

Our team has accumulated experience and exposure that is rare among narrowly focused branding, marketing, or production agencies. 

What this means for you is that it is unlikely that we’ve not seen your challenge and have not already worked through it before at a high level. 

We can spot trouble areas fast and then diagnose, produce, and get you launched on time with a crystal clear plan for how to manage going forward. 

At the end of the day though, it is about bringing your big idea to life with beauty, efficiency, and creative elegance that is distinctly yours. Just as we would for our own.
