At Studio-MZ we know what is clearly the bottom-line — getting your job done expertly and within budget. With access to a state-of-the-art creative studio for design and copy development, an extensive team of networked communication professionals and vendors, more than 6-million stock images and art (at a greatly discounted price) or the best photographers in Atlanta on stand-by, we can manage your project no matter what you need done. Services include image campaigns; marketing campaigns; advertising for print, online or radio; direct-mail collateral; brochures, programs or annual reports; publications; book design; signage and more.



Studio-MZ is a full-service strategic integrated communications consultancy serving clients in the nonprofit, higher education, corporate and commercial sectors. Services include marketing communications planning, design for print, design for web and image restoration and conceptual development.

Studio-MZ operates off a distinctive philosophy and methodology: Strategic Integrated Communications. Through this mechanism, we recognize the importance of building communications planning out from an organization's core strategic imperative, mission or goals. Almost like the spokes of a wheel, communications should stem out from the center radiating in a blanket coverage. All communications vehicles (print, Web, video, etc.) should integrate in a harmonious plan to support the overall brand. For practical consideration, this helps immensely when dealing with projecting budgets — ensuring all bases are covered and no gaps are left untended.
