Our Story

From A Sailboat, To An Office, & Now Totally Virtual.

Helping Bluffton Service Based Businesses Build Websites & Grow Their Business Since 2005.

In the heart of the Lowcountry in the quaint little town of Bluffton, South Carolina, you will find the bustling marketing agency Morning Sock Studios just blocks away from the May River.

When you do what you love and go for your dreams, it is hard to call it work. We once read somewhere “to succeed in business, avoid business as usual.”

It all started back in 2005 as a small husband and wife design firm named Guppie Graphics. In 2010, we rebranded as Morning Sock Studios then set sail on our sailboat Papillon. After a few years of sailing, the business grew to the point we needed an office, so we cruised back home from the Florida Keys to open our headquarters. Now we offer an array of marketing products & services that were only a dream when we were Guppie Graphics.

We look forward to serving you, and a huge thank you to all our current clients in the Hilton Head and Bluffton, SC who got us to where we are today.

I came up with this quote while hiking a section of the AT near Mount Rogers. Not only did it apply to that particular hike, but it follows through into all things in life including business. Feel free to follow me on these social media platforms.

Bluffton Website & Marketing Experts

Your website is one of the first places people look when wanting to learn more about your business. With the majority of people turning to mobile and tablet devices to do searches, your website design needs to create the same impact on a device as it would on a computer screen. As simple as this sounds, your website needs to provide your visitors exactly what they are looking for quickly. Secondly, if someone is searching for your product or service, your website needs to be easily found especially if that someone has never heard of your business. Your site is indeed the hub of all your marketing efforts. We do not just build websites; we help website bring more customers.
