About Gray Creative Studio

Gray Creative Studio is a boutique branding and graphic + web design agency based in Ventura County, California. We specialize in working with women owned-and-operated businesses with everything from the beginning stages of creating their business to a complete brand refresh and all things in between. Founded in 2014 (originally as Taryn Marie Designs), we have worked with a range of clients including service based businesses, photographers, bloggers, e-commerce businesses, musicians, and more.

At Gray Creative Studio, we work with companies to define their brand and create the essential pieces needed to convey that message. We firmly believe that companies cannot maintain long term success without a clear, defined brand. One thing that truly sets us apart is a genuine skill for understanding the vision even when our clients are unable to vocalize specific details about it. It is common practice for us to ask our clients to create a Pinterest board with “anything and everything” that inspires them as it relates to the brand – this can include actual pieces of branding and colors but also, it often includes things that convey a vibe such as interior decor, artwork, floral arrangements, and more. Inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places.

Taryn was wonderful to work with. She really took her time getting to know our brand and understand our vision and delivered accordingly. We’re so happy with the logo she created for us. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking to use her services and I hope I’m able to work with her again!

It has been such a pleasure working with Taryn at Gray Creative Studio! She was able to take my jumbled rambles of what I wanted for my company logo and bring it to life by creating the most perfect representation of my brand. In addition to designing my logo, she has also helped me create beautiful business cards, gift cards, and product labels in a timely manner. I have, and would, recommend her to anyone and everyone in need of bringing their brand to life through graphic design and overall branding.
