Our unique, all-inclusive approach involves leading our design with your company’s story, and values in mind, which will set you apart from your competitors, and help you connect with your target audience.

Kim Collins, a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, who began her career with one of Pittsburgh’s leading multimedia firms, founded blue tomato in 2002 to pursue her vision of what a design agency should be. Through blue tomato, Kim truly dedicates herself to becoming a partner in her clients’ growth through providing exceptional design, and an even more exceptional experience.
