Tomboy - Graphic & Web Designer

Our Story:

Chelsea & Anna are the girls of Tomboy, a small graphic design shop located in the nation’s capital. They met while pulling all-nighters in undergrad, but it wasn't until a summer abroad in London that they discovered their mutual attraction to fashion, hand-drawn typography, and tycoon games.

Tomboy Studio got its name from the unfortunately awkward middle school years of its two founders. When they weren't playing sports, or getting their clothes dirty, they were being mistaken for one of the guys – literally, adolescent males. Since then, both their personal styles and design approach have grown up a bit, but they’ll still do anything to get their hands dirty on a project.

What gets us up in the morning is the idea that we can use our design powers for good– that is, help great ideas and products be clearly and beautifully articulated. We firmly believe that design can elevate ideas that would normally be overlooked.

Having lived in the district a little over 3 years, the ladies of Tomboy have a love for local DC small businesses. We absolutely adore collaborating with other entrepreneurs in making their vision a reality, both in style and in function.

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chelsea and Anna (of Tomboy fame) for over two years now and have enjoyed it immensely. They are consistently creative, passionate and deliver products on time. I’ve recently worked with them on a branding book for my organization, The American Spectator, and couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Tomboy captured the tone and feel of our brand perfectly while giving it a fresh and dynamic look. They really are passionate about capturing what your brand is all about and being true to that vision while delivering a fantastic product. I also had the opportunity to work with them on infographics, printed marketing materials, annual reports and photography projects. In each of these areas, they refuse to accept anything less than excellence. Whatever your graphic design needs, you couldn’t find a better pair to work with. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how well they manage the process. Working through project goals and timelines is enjoyable and they are extraordinarily gracious and pleasant to work with." - Ben, The American Spectator, Client

"Tomboy excels not only as a graphic designers, but also as creative partners. From infographics, to annual reports, to identity and branding Tomboy’s style and visual problem solving skills are uncommon, and you’d be lucky to have them on your project. I’m always amazed at their ability to adapt to changes, while still maintaining such a high standard of quality. They treat every project as a potential portfolio piece, and it shows. But they’re not just talented design professionals, they’re also pros creating and maintaining good client relationships. Speaking as someone who isn’t a graphic designer, I always feel my opinion is valued and their willingness and desire to collaborate on projects let’s me know I can trust them to meet our project goals. I always feel comfortable knowing that any project we give to Tomboy will not only be exactly what we asked for, but also creatively more than we could have hoped for." - John, The Public Notice, Client
