Be bold. It's fun!

Welcome to Hot Pepper Studios. We do award-winning work for web, print and film and produce popular events that people dig. Got a zesty idea? Let's talk.


Deconstructing Bauhaus

We're fools for fun projects that push the edge of design and technology. Our lab and testing ground is chock full of prototypes and ideas sometimes not fully hatched. We ask "what if?" and start experimenting. The great ideas eventually, after a good deal of testing, flow into our recipe for the secret sauce that flavors project greatness. And every now and then, a client like Extensis will say "we want to see some crazy ideas that just might work."


ecosystem, my ecosystem

ecosystem is a colorful new line of notebooks and journals made from 100% post-consumer, recycled paper. We like the large flexi cover blank journals with the black cover, but the lagoon and watermelon covers are delish. Hot Pepper designed and built the ecosystem site and we invite you to check out the nifty little "build your ecosystem' tool.

walk there

People dig it

The fabulous "Walk There!" pocket guide is a favorite among Portland residents and visitors to our fair city. Some of our picks include the "4T - Trail, Tram, Trolley and Train," "McLoughlin Historic District" and "Brooklyn and Rail Yards" (hop a freight train!). Walk There was the #5 best selling non-fiction book at Powell's Books. If it weren't for that popular Michael Pollan character, this book might be number one.
