DESIGN

From corporate branding to trade shows, print ads and brochures, even the occasional yard sign, if it needs to look good and work hard, we’ll design it to do just that.

MOTION

TV Commercials, corporate brand films, web videos, 2D and 3D animation, motion graphics, multi-media campaigns. If it moves, we can make it.

INTERACTIVE

From desktop to mobile platforms, we can help get your brand in front of your audience however, whenever, virtually wherever they need to connect with it.

work

Our Work

Content production and design for all media platforms.

When people ask what we do, our answer is simple: help create solutions.

motion

The world didn’t need another garden-variety production company when we opened our doors and cued the lights. So we didn’t give it one.
Instead we created an environment where ideas are always on tap and three basic principles are embraced.

“Relationships are gold. Do whatever it takes. Success is everyone’s job.”

-Rob Tiisler

We do our thing in the heart of Tampa Bay, right next to the best coffee house in town. But the location and espresso are just perks. Our energy comes from helping clients connect with their audience. From creative concept to production, or any step in between, we do it fast and we do it good.

Because fast without good is no good, and good without fast is just a waste of time.

His diverse background includes production, animation, advertising, branding and always going the extra mile for every client. His thirst for unexpected solutions and get-it-done mentality drive our approach to each and every project. This unique blend of creativity and customer service is what truly sets Company Man Studios apart. Along with our cool schwag, of course.

In his rare spare time, Rob builds furniture, paints, fishes, and collects cool old things. No, we don’t know how he does it all either.
