With over 20 years of experience, we officially opened the doors to our own studio in 2003. We have a great appreciation for any graphic art done by hand (sign painters & letter press for example). Matt has fond memories of being completely transfixed watching his dad work in the trade of graphic design when it was done by hand, and we try to keep that spirit of art and craft alive and well in the Lab. Our goal is to offer unique perspectives and creative solutions (and award-winning work along the way) in satisfying the creative needs for a vast array of clients, from the music industry to furniture manufacturers. We’ve also managed national ad campaigns for clients ranging from national furniture brands to medical centers. Since there’s nothing quite like having your furry pal with you at work, we are a pet friendly studio. Our dear dog Satchmo had accompanied us the entire way. She was such a great friend of 12.5 years. She is a big part of the ‘Labs’ in our studio name (and is featured in several of our studio logos). Long live Satchels.

Pfahlert Creative Labs has had the pleasure of creating work with clients such as:
