Worth it Studios is a big grandiose name I came up with that refers to a business that I am indeed in charge of. I am also it’s only employee and that’s just fine by me.
The name itself came from my ongoing comic strip that started concurrently with my previous business of strictly Graphic and Web Design. This new direction is a reflection of my passion and profession blending into one.
Worth it Studios now provides Cartoon Marketing and Illustration along with Graphic and Web Design services. These services are provided with the utmost professionalism and creative passion that drives all my work. After all, this is a brand that I stand proudly behind.
The greatest satisfaction I receive from my work is from my clients. By working with small to medium sized businesses, I have the privilege of working closely with the owner, someone who is as passionate about their own business as I am of mine.
It is my belief, and by extension, that of Worth it Studios that is that passion along with open communication throughout the entire process, in which the best and most effective results are achieved.
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Around the age of 10, after discovering the beautifully drawn Garfield, I decided to be a cartoonist. After 5 art classes throughout high school and three years of Fine Art at Georgian College, I looked forward to building a career as an artist.
But, believe it or not, I could not find 1 job that required my talents. I took a temporary job in a factory to make ends meet, but after my wife became pregnant with our first child, I stayed on to provide for my family.
I toiled away for 15 years before parting ways with the company and decided that once and for all I was going to be an artist. I started Steve Mills Design in 2009 and introduced myself as a Graphic Designer. At the same time I had decided to create my own comic strip and publish it on the web, forcing me to learn web design, which I now added to my resume.
My guiding principle has always been to do my absolute best in everything I do whether it’s for myself or my clients. My passion is to bring your ideas to life.
