What People Are Saying About Red Raspberry Studios

I am so excited to have my very own Whimsical Lady!! Barbi created her for me and I think she is perfect!! She captured my flowing hair, love of the beach and I can wait to see her every day when I’m working in my office.

We have worked together on a number of projects including logo design, print design for tea towels, and coming this Fall, another design for new products exclusive to Mint & Honey. I can’t say enough about the wonderful collaboration with @redraspberrystudios except those few words: we keep going back for more! ?
