We last redesigned our magazine five years ago, and it was all done in-house. It was an all-consuming process that I was not excited to repeat. Selecting Studio 630 was an easy choice. Their work stood out as fresh and modern, as well as something our in-house team would be able to carry forward – a perfect blend. Simone helped us think through the reorganization of the magazine and suggested some changes we hadn’t thought of. The whole process was so much more enjoyable and fun than I was expecting. The comments from our readers have been glowing. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Studio 630 again.

The one thing we knew was that our magazine was in desperate need of a new look, but from there, we had no idea where to start. While doing research on design firms, Simone and her teams work easily stood out to us. The designs we saw throughout all her samples were exactly what we were looking for and she delivered beyond my wildest expectations. Working with Simone throughout the redesign process really helped us come to think of our magazine in new ways too. With her help and guidance, we came up with fresh ideas for how to lay out our magazine and fine tune our editorial strategy — all things we may have never even considered without help from Simone. She was very helpful and responsive to all of concerns and worked with us to quickly resolve any issues we came up with. I really thought this was going to be a more daunting process than it was. Simone helped us keep this process fun and let our creativity run. I am very happy with our end result and, most importantly, so are our readers.

Over the past 25 years, I have been an editor at consumer magazines with 5 million readers, an association magazine for the fashion industry, trade magazines for the home furnishings industry, and at a children’s book publisher where graphics were crucial. In short, I’m accustomed to working with talented professionals in the graphics department, but none have exceeded the high quality and level of collaboration that I have experienced with Simone Tieber and her team at Studio 630.
It’s easy for creative writers to fall behind deadline, but the Studio 630 team keeps the production schedule on track without fail and builds in tremendous flexibility when editorial disasters strike, as they inevitably do.
Our start-up design magazine can attribute a significant part of our success to the innovative layouts, graphic treatments, and creativity of the Studio 630 team.

In all my years in the industry from HBO to Kosher Media Network, I have yet to work with as talented and gracious a designer as Simone Tieber and her team at Studio 630. She transforms the average into excellence and is a pleasure to work with at every stage of the project, even when the deadline is looming and the stress is on. Given the opportunity I would work with her again and again and again.

Whether it’s your first or your fifth redesign, it’s an emotional experience just as much as a creative exercise. The beauty of working with studio630 is that they bring a rational, calming influence to the team while also offering bright, inspired design solutions. It’s a pleasure to work with Simone and I would recommend her to anyone, except our competition.

I’ve been through redesigns that were chaos. Not this one! Simone is focused, creative, quick and calm. We are thrilled with our beautiful new magazine.

Studio630 is my absolute favorite print design and print production design studio to work with, period. Their elegant design supports the content at hand while staying true to the brand. And Simone’s eagle eye always makes me as an editor feel like somebody has my back. I've worked with studio630 on a number of projects over the years and am always impressed with their ability to gather client feedback, get to the root of an issue, and propose solutions everyone is happy with. I can't recommend them highly enough.

I worked with studio630 on the latest redesign of Florida Trend magazine. As the magazine’s art director, I needed an experienced consultant who could do top-quality design work. Simone was great. She asked all the right questions beforehand, learned who our audience is, offered suggestions that helped us achieve what we wanted and worked diligently implementing our ideas. Together, we came up with a magazine with a cleaner, more modern look. On top of everything else, studio630 was very professional and easy to work with.

Simone Tieber is THE most professional designer we have ever worked with! She is creative, talented and highly skilled at her craft. She treats your business like it’s her own with all the care and attention to detail that you’d want from a designer, but seldom get. Her work is top notch and always on time. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have this fine professional on our GRAND Team. It is my privilege to recommend Simone and Studio 630 to anyone who seeks the very best!
