The Bridge Studio is a boutique design studio located in Boulder, Colorado.

Our mission is to use design to encourage understanding, collaboration, and cooperation for positive change.

We are dedicated to delivering exceptional design services through joyful experiences.

A recent client said, “Michelle, your design reviews feel like art therapy.”

Imagine working together could mean that your project gets done on time, on budget, and it can feel like art therapy.

The Bridge Studio (TBS) provides custom design solutions for organizations at the leading edge of new technologies and social change.

Hiring TBS means you get the personalized experience of working with a consultant and the firepower of a small army. We do this by assembling fit-for-purpose teams based on your unique communication needs. This tried and true model has allowed TBS to remain nimble and focused on our niche client base over the years.

With over 14 years in business, it’s safe to say that TBS is not going anywhere. As we collaborate over time, we gain institutional knowledge about your organization that proves invaluable during times of transition and growth.

Working with TBS, you can expect an experience that goes beyond the conventional design process. We’ll ensure you meet your deadline and enjoy the creative process along the way.

When you hire The Bridge Studio, you are supporting a minority, woman owned and operated small business that is a force for good.

Michelle Fox is the creative social entrepreneur behind The Bridge Studio. She has worked in non-profit communications since 2006. Her expertise lies at the intersections of design, strategy, systems thinking, and creative communications. 

When she’s not rolling up her sleeves on client projects, Michelle proudly demonstrates her commitment to being a force for good through advocacy, activism, and volunteering in her community. She currently serves on the Boulder Chamber Board of Directors and was most recently involved in the passage of the 2023 Colorado Senate Bill 127: Protecting Opportunities and Workers’ Rights (POWR Act).

The Bridge Studio's name is inspired by the long-horizon view seen from the bridge of a ship.

Our branding process was inspired by natural systems and sacred geometry. This resulted in a logomark that resembles a compass, ship's wheel, and mandala. Our name and logomark inspire us each day to look to the future and pursue solutions that are in harmony with people and the planet.
