Immotion Studios is a Fort Worth based brand development and advertising agency and the only certified brand strategist in the state of Texas. Through collaboration, a proven brand development process and successful marketing strategies, we help transform your brand into a valuable asset. We execute communication programs that begin with a solid branding strategy and result in increased brand awareness and recognition.

It’s our belief that the true definition of a brand is evidence of distinction. It’s not just a logo, tagline or slogan; it’s not a marketing initiative or a campaign, it is a claim of distinction that only your company, organization or product can deliver. Without this evidence of distinction a brand is only a label that identifies the product. Our proprietary 8-step process that sets your brand in motion is proven effective in growing businesses and brands.

In addition to our exclusive branding services, we offer a variety of award-winning design services (graphic, web, package, label, and more), as well as video production, food styling, photography, advertising, social media, and public relations.
