What does Toggle even mean?

To Toggle is to switch modes or change states. In this case the states are Louisiana and South Carolina. (New Orleans and Columbia)

So what can you do?

We can design branding – logos, business cards, letterheads, brochures, ads. We can design and build WordPress websites. We can also create illustrations for publications.

How did you team up?

We met at the Savannah College of Art & Design in a 3-D Graphics Studio class in 2004. We collaborated on a trade show booth project (we both got an A!). After working together on and off for 12 years, we decided to start Toggle Design Collective.

How do you manage the time difference?

Um…It’s just an hour.

How are you able to communicate so effectively over such a long distance?

Which one of you is better at responding to my emails?

Nice try. We collaborate on those too!
