you need to build a brand. scary? no. exciting.

you landed on this page because you probably need one of two things: 


you need to build a brand.


you have a brand that needs big picture vision and/or day-to-day support.


"you were able to pull out of me what i could not pull out of myself...what i could not articulate. it's beautiful. it was really cool to see my dream be born into the world, which could not have happened without your beautiful words."

- melissa van hayes, serre vineyards


you need to build a brand...

all we need you to know is this: we’ve got your back. 


we have trusted resources and relationships to cover all aspects of brand building - from a logo suite and website design to photography and video. 


(rest assured, toth shop will always cover the brand development and storytelling angles.)


we teamed up with colleagues to create a package just for you.


you have a brand that needs big picture vision and strategy, consistent storytelling and

day-to-day support

raise your hand if you need a unique team that can do any of the following, a combination of the following, or perhaps the whole schbang:

define your brand

craft a brand voice

lead and execute the company’s marketing strategy to maximize brand presence

craft and produce engaging and empowering content and digital assets.

manage marketing and creative teams that produce marketing collateral and monitor social media, website performance, google analytics, and ad traffic to inform ideas, success metrics and overall strategy to maximize brand presence 

embody the brand voice and act as the go-to person for copy, externally and internally

manage external media relationships

provide research and copywriting support for inquiries & expert requests

own and maintain the company’s internal brand guidelines

interview and hire marketing partners when needed for functions such as social media advertising


we always create, coach, and partner with these three things in mind: 

toth shop is a relationship-based culture: this means we always put people first. 


every member of our team is a stand for respect and inclusion: we want to hear from and listen to every voice at your table; we create a partnership relationship that’s safe, comfortable, and respectful. 


we believe anything is possible: whatever the idea is, let’s put some strategy to it, and explore it; if it doesn’t work, we learn and we pivot; if it works, we lean into it, and we stay agile to keep moving forward with you. 


so, what’s toth?

toth shop is named for erzsébet toth who, at just 19, left her home in the village of paczin, hungary to board a transatlantic ship in the belgium port city of antwerp on may 23, 1912. she did it by herself, in the middle of the night. that ship docked at ellis island, nyc on june 4, 1912. she spoke no english; she knew no one in america; she started an entirely new life in pittsburgh. she - elizabeth toth doczy - became a u.s. citizen in 1957, and her name is on a brick permanently placed at ellis island. she’s our founder’s great-grandmother.

that courage, curiosity, and personal drive to rewrite the (life) story defines toth shop. 


welcome to the family.
