Our company was created to help businesses of all sizes become, and remain, successful
For over 25 years, our office was home to a different kind of shop. A shop so successful that it was known nationwide as a trend-setter in its industry. This business catered to an exclusive group; making costumes, dresses, stage gear for actors, dancers, and all sorts of other “things” that were both sold locally and shipped across the nation. Appropriately, it was named The Thing Shop
Our name, The Think Shop, not only reflects what we do on a daily basis for our clients, but also pays proud homage to that small local shop in Northern Kentucky that made such a huge impact in its industry. Today, The Thing Shop sign still hangs prominently inside our studio
Today’s society is overwhelmed with gadgets, widgets and disposable items. For many, it’s hard to comprehend or quantify the experience, effort and craftsmanship it takes to actually make something by hand when modern technology and methods enable us to easily dispose of, and replace, the things that we use daily.
The axe represents a time when the quality of a tool meant survival. When handmade was a necessity not a trend; and when forging a new path meant you gotta’ get dirty. The axe was one of mankind's most useful tools in both industry and life. It still remains relevant today. Many continue to use the axe daily all over the world; the axe stands as a symbol of one’s roots, discovery, innovation, integrity, craftsmanship, progress, and success.
Builders, artisans, explorers, and pioneers have used, and continue to use, the axe for forging and fabricating; always forward thinking to make a better life for themselves or express individuality.
What could be considered by some a crude instrument fashioned for destruction, to many, axes are considered an original piece of artwork; each hand made and tailored to a particular region, tailored for its use, and, in many cases, tailored specifically to the maker themselves.
The style of our axe was born in Kentucky (like us) and pays respect to creators, explorers, and pioneers from every industry, culture, and society. Our axe represents our roots, ongoing discovery, well honed craftsmanship, and the quality and integrity in everything that we do each and every day.
