Our job is to tell your story in the most compelling manner possible.

When you have the right tools to tell your story, you get great results. We take pride in helping our clients grow, thrive and prosper. And we enjoy the relationships we build along the way.
We are a truly collaborative team, both when we work in the studio and when we work with our clients. We approach each project and assignment with the goal of making it as good as it can possibly be. We love our company, we love our work and we love the satisfaction of making our clients happy.
fifteen years in the making...
AND we’ve enjoyed every minute of it!
Blood, Sweat & Tears
In 1999, Nick Hower and Kory Kapfer realized that there was a need in this world for more great design and creative work. So they launched Kitchen Sink Studios in Nick’s garage on a shoestring budget.
“If we were going to do this,
we were going to do it right. And that’s carried over into everything we do...”
“Kory wore a tie to work the first couple of weeks,” Nick tells us. “I was like, ‘Kory, we’re working in the garage!’” But his point was that if we were going to do this, we were going to do it right. And that’s carried over into everything we do.*
The business grew quickly, as did the list of services the studio provides. Before long, Kitchen Sink Studios was a full-fledged creative firm, providing everything from branding and identity to renderings and animation.
In 2006, Kitchen Sink Studios bought its current home on the corner of 3rd Street and Garfield in downtown Phoenix. In 2007, the company completely gutted the buildings and renovated it into the working studio you see today.
“We’ve been lucky to work
with great people, both on
our team and with the clients we’ve served...”
If you’ve seen our front gate, you know that our “sign” is made up of about 8,000 bottlecaps. The bottlecaps went up in 2009.
“It’s been a great partnership, and we’re really proud of the company,” Kory said. “We’ve been lucky to work with great people, both on our team over the years and with the clients we’ve served.”
