Happy Holidays!


Tallgrass Studios will be closed Friday, December 23rd, Monday, December 26th, Friday, December 30th and Monday, January 2nd to spend time with friends and family this holiday season.

Here’s the Scoop (It’s for Poop)

Tallgrass Studios is always proud to support local Kansas businesses, and Integrated Employment Enterprises of Ottawa, Kansas is no exception. A certified not-for-profit business, IEE specializes in light manufacturing and providing staffing for general labor purposes, offering employment for individuals who are disabled or otherwise chronically unemployed.

Our Tallgrass Team, including designer/illustrator Shelly Albrecht, has been working with IEE to help establish a look for their new brand of pet products. The “Best Friends” pet line is made in the U.S.A., and includes products such as litter trays, deodorizers and scoops. One stand-out package we worked on is the Yard Waste and Litterbox Cleanup Kit: a nifty collection of tools for making waste collection a cinch. You’ll be able to spot these products in stores soon, with branding, packaging, labels and hangtags, all designed right here and printed locally.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Tallgrass Studios will be closed Wednesday, November 23rd through Friday, November 25th to spend time with friends and family this Thanksgiving.

4Sight Construction Group heads in a New Direction, Visually and Conceptually, with New Corporate Identity.

4Sight Construction Group (4Sight) has been working with Tallgrass Studios since 2015 to develop a new corporate identity that best represents the core of their business philosophy while incorporating all service divisions under one name/identity. 4Sight is a fully integrated construction group providing; general contracting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), mechanical installation and service, and environmental services for their clients; their new logos, taglines and corporate identity now reflects their unique and integrated service offerings.

Much thought and consideration went into the company name, colors, and icon at business conception. 4Sight selected the compass icon to best represent their company’s attributes. A compass is a surveying or navigational instrument developed to look carefully in a certain direction, and can be used to measure true direction. The compass is the beginning of a plan and the foundation of foresight – or 4Sight.

Tallgrass Studios redesigned the compass with a modern feel and utilized colors to segment the logo to represent the different service divisions for the company. The main color, Dark Blue, was selected for their core vales of trustworthiness, dependability and commitment, and as their main service, General Contracting. Red was chosen for Mechanical Services that include heating, air conditioning, service and installation. Green represents Environmental areas of their work, such as finding more sustainable ways to do business, restorative development, and demolition reclamation.

New taglines that play off the navigational theme were created to supplement each division.

Time was spent finding the right combination of elements, but eventually a new logo and graphic standards were put into place. Tallgrass designed and applied the new identity to collateral pieces, business cards, letterhead, vehicle wraps, construction signage, and, on July 1, 2016 launched a fully functional website that features an animated logo, customizable page information, news feed blog, image galleries and customizable forms that corresponds to their existing email marketing.

720 E 9th St – 720 East 9th Street #2, Lawrence, KS


to the Lawrence Warehouse Arts District. After 9 years in the vintage 901 Kentucky Building it was evident we needed more space, and moving into a large warehouse was a perfect fit. With 14’ ceilings and 1,000 more square feet of space, our new office gives us the room we need to create, design, produce and distribute. Our open house will be this summer. Stay tuned.
