If you want the best, you found the right place! Businesses are constantly changing and evolving. About four years ago, my business completely shifted in a new direction. Luckily Blue Tomato was there give my business a fresh new identity to support the direction my business was heading. Kim recommended a new name, logo, and website. It was the best decision I could have made at the time. Start to finish, Kim's creativity, communication, and execution is second to none.

Kim has supported our team on a number of projects from website design, collateral and tradeshow booth design to print and digital marketing and she always delivers high quality work!

We have often contacted Kim with very short deadlines and she makes it very easy to meet the deadlines without any compromise to design quality. Kim is very good at taking feedback from different members of the team in the creative process and designing exactly what we need.

After many years of running agencies and developing brands, I decided to start my own business. After an internet search, my wife found Blue Tomato, which stood out with bold design. Discussing my needs with Kim was a pleasure, and she quickly developed a logo and website that incorporated my personality and style. It has proven to be a terrific brand design and a great business generator. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear, “I love that business card,” or “what a great logo.” I highly recommend the lovely Kim Collins and Blue Tomato.

Stan Muschweck - Owner

"Kim recently created an ad for our ecommerce business. Since the ad was being displayed on a local movie theatre screen as a preview, there were specific requirements Kim had to meet in order for the ad to accommodate the screen size. Kim turned the creative around in 48 hours, in time to meet the theatre's deadline. We were very pleased with Kim's creativity and turnaround time."

Kim and her team have been amazing in creating a new online store for our bakery La Gourmandine. They have also created our backend system for our production team to fulfill orders for customers from our 4 stores. Since the launch of the website and the internal system (2021) they have been very quick in responding and making any edits we requested (which have been a lot!). To this day we are still perfecting and adding new features to the system and the website. I highly recommend Blue Tomato.
