What our Clients Say About Us

 

“The hardest thing about working with Halski Studio is matching their enthusiasm. They see each job as an opportunity. And they over deliver at every turn. If there’s a chance to make the project better, they’ll pounce on it. And fortunately for those of us who get to work with them, their energy is contagious.

When you add their approach to their high standards for quality, you know you’re going to have both a great experience and an amazing product. I’m proud of the work we’ve done together. And I always look forward to the next time.

The AT&T small business video they produced, shot and edited for us is a great example of how they can scale a crew and create a piece that is equal parts polished and heartfelt.

I particularly appreciated how Halski was able to cover the shoot from multiple angles while shooting within a narrow (mirrored) 200 square feet. They made the talent feel at ease. And they brought their own perspective to the subject matter while capturing everything we wanted.

Their vision and enthusiasm carried over into the edit as well. Working with the same core team from beginning to end added to the honesty and authenticity of the work. When all was said and done—in less than two weeks—the finished piece reflected the dedication they put in throughout the production.”

JAKE EDINGER   Creative Director, Rodgers Townsend

 

“Mark is a pleasure to work with. His passion for our products and craft is infectious. We run a global company that is driven entirely by emotional decision making. We benefit greatly from Mark’s ability to transform our brand into an aspirational dream. Mark was instrumental in developing a passionate vision of Klipsch that well exceeded ownership’s expectations. In addition, his detailed approach to work product and follow up is outstanding.”

PAUL JACOBS   President, Klipsch Group

 

“Meg is a wonderful collaborator and versatile talent. Whether interpreting the creative solution to the client ask, pulling all strings to bring an idea to life, jumping behind the lens, or cracking the challenge in the edit room, she brings a refreshing optimism that in itself can make greatness possible.”

RYAN BROWN   SVP Strategy and Brand Content, FleishmanHillard

 

“Mark is a creative professional that is working at the top of his game with a unique ability to turn a creative vision, formed together, into a work-product that inspires an emotional connection with consumers. After hiring countless agencies, Mark and Halski Studio rose to the occasion as a boutique agency that delivers on their commitments and works hard to exceed expectations. Mark’s personal talents as a photographer are iconic. I have now hired Mark at three different organizations, that’s how much I think of Mark and Halski studios. If there is any doubt in his abilities, simply look at the Inspire image from his work at yurbuds. This image became the brand yurbuds. Truly stunning.”

SETH BURGETT   Entrepreneur, Global Executive & Board Member

 

“Halski Studio have been an invaluable asset to Better Life in helping to develop the initial brand concept and evolving it ever since. Halski Studio has amazing creative skills, but also the rare ability to translate this into achieving business objectives. True professionals.”

TIM BARKLAGE   CEO & Co-Founder, Better Life

 

“Halski Studio has the rare ability to capture the brand essence of a company and develop an emotive, engaging, and enduring brand strategy. Feedback from customers and shareholders have suggested that the yurbuds brand is striking and has a DNA that runs deep with an ability to touch a broad group of customers. Consumer testing has reinforced the compelling ability of the yurbuds package design to engage at the shelf and was a top pick with consumers.

“The Cardinals brand is one of the most long-standing and iconic in the country. Mark Halski provided great artistic direction for several years. Mark’s work on the “Play Like A Cardinal” campaign helped create great buy-in from our fans, with dynamic creative work across multiple media.”

MARTIN COCO   Marketing Director, St. Louis Cardinals

 

“Hire a Director and get a Writer completely free. I had the pleasure of working with Halski Studios this summer on a series of videos. None of which would have ever happened had Meg not written an additional creative treatment which took us on a journey to Puerto Caimito. Her enthusiasm for the work is infectious. We need more of her in our industry.”

JONATHAN HANSEN   Associate Creative Director, Rodgers Townsend

 

“I have worked with Mark over many years, while he was at Arnold Worldwide, Waylon and now Halski Studio. I’ve been happy to follow him as his results speak for themselves. He was instrumental in shaping the brand voice for Klipsch while I was there. I’ve also worked with Halski on packaging design projects for Gilchrist & Soames and they bring incredible enthusiasm and passion to every project. I could not recommend them more highly!”

CHRISTINE PYLE   Director of Marketing, Klipsch (previous), Senior Director of Marketing, CEDIA  (current)

 

“Halski Studio have time and again proven to be an invaluable asset to yurbuds. They have excelled at everything they have been tasked with, including packaging, print ads, social media branding, and videos. Their continued input into the development of yurbuds’ look and feel has helped us create a consistent, emotive, and award-winning brand. They are a pleasure to work with and execute in a timely fashion. They have my highest recommendation.”

DANIEL DEVILLE   Director of Marketing, yurbuds Sport Earphones

 

“I was beyond excited when Meg and Halski Studio agreed to make a short film to accompany the release of Never Give You Away. As a passion project with no budget, this was not her typical assignment. And it would certainly not be your typical music video. It was decided early on – there would be no band performance, and no band members would appear. This gave Meg complete freedom to interpret the song in her own unique way. It also required her to utilize all of her creative talents – not just those behind the camera. From casting and production to shooting, directing and editing, Meg did it all. In the end, it was her passion that made the film happen as much as her talent and vision. And I love that as much as the result itself. Making something for the pure and simple joy of making it. That’s good stuff. And that’s often where true creativity is revealed.”

J. CHAMBERS   Creative Director, Rodgers Townsend

 

“While serving as an art director for Klipsch Group, I had the pleasure to work with Halski Studio on multiple projects. Halski Studio are a joy to work with. Their creativity, attention to detail and careful planning allowed us to achieve imagery beyond our expectations and stay within a strict budget. Our collaboration yielded outstanding results and strengthened our brand. I recommend Halski Studio with great enthusiasm.”

“Halski Studio has a profound understanding of design. They understand the customer and the audience and deliver above all expectations. It has been a true pleasure to watch Halski Studio bring our brand to life from conception to reality. They are truly gifted designers and outstanding team players.”

KEVIN TIBBS   Chief Chemist & Co-Founder, Better Life

 

“Megan Halski served as the director of the movie, The Bunglers. She is capable of handling projects large in scope and complex in implementation. Her spirit and dedication was the driving force that made the production possible. She brought both passion and composure to the production, two attributes I value most when looking for someone to work with. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again.”

BRADLEY BOWERS   Owner, Tree Tractor Productions

 

“Mark is amazing. Not only is he extremely talented and passionate about his craft, he is also a great team member, colleague and collaborator. I’ve worked with Mark on several amazing projects that I can honestly say would not have been as successful without his contribution, perspective and inspiring attitude. He is a true talent and a genuine person. I will always respect and admire Mark and would work with him on any project, anytime.”

AHAB NIMRY  Creative Director

 

“I worked with Mark on several projects at Klipsch including brochures, store displays, website design, ad campaigns, photography and overall branding. He is always extremely passionate about the work and brings creative that clearly explains the function and beauty of our products. We can always count on amazing creative results. Our entire team enjoys working with Mark and I look forward to continuing our work in the future.”

MEREDITH RONEY   Marketing Manager, Klipsch

 

“Kona has always done everything from the inside and it was considered a huge risk to hire an outside firm to create ads and promotional materials for our brand. Risky though it was, the results were great. The materials were bursting with the right attitude for our brand and I was a part of the process the entire way.”

CORY BLACKWOOD   Sales Manager & Advocacy Director, Kona Bicycles

 

“Mark is an amazing art director, designer, photographer and brand-builder. The guy is smart, passionate and finds a way to make something special out of everything he works on. Teaming with Mark is as creatively-satisfying an experience as you could ask for.”

“Mark is the ultimate team player. A must have on your team. He’s easy to work with, his enthusiasm is contagious, his work ethic is admirable and everything he does is at 150%. It’s hard to find people as multi talented as Mark. And after many years of working with him, I’m still in awe of all he brings to the table.”

CECILIA SHEA  Director – Ecommerce and Digital Marketing at Build-A-Bear Workshop

 

“Mark’s an extremely talented guy who’s passionate about what he does. But to me, his relentless enthusiasm and willingness to take chances are what really set Halski apart. Whether it’s shooting photography that refuses to be ignored or creating ads that make copywriters and brands look better than they have any right to, Mark’s real gift is that he never forgets to have fun along the way. He’s an easygoing perfectionist who makes everyone around him better.”

BOB HARRIS  Creative Director

 

“I truly cannot say what I am more impressed with; their heart of serving others in need, or their seemingly unlimited talents. It is impossible for me to find the words to say how much Halski Studio have meant to me and our organization. They are God-gifted artists. They are amazing free-thinkers. They are multi-talented craftsmen. They are humble servants to those in need. They exceed expectations. They are good friends.”

The end result was always fantastic photography and visuals that conveyed the emotion of the products exactly as we needed.”
