While doing my research, I found that with certain States it was hard to pick just one, while other’s had limited resources. Some even had me cringe at the fact of picking any (see #26). Do you live in one of these States and know of any great Design Studios, including your own? Feel free to comment and let us know your thoughts and findings.

  1. I don’t know how alot of these websites made the list. I’d say over 50% of these have poor presentation as portfolios (hard to use) or showcase work that I’d hardly call best nationally. Not that my work is great by any means…

  2. Dana says:

    The studio you’ve listed for NC is actually based in Tennessee. I’d love to see which design studio ACTUALLY from North Carolina you pick.

  3. Jake says:

    It’d be great if you updated the screen-shot of C3. We revamped our website and it’s pretty cool technology.
