We are Luke Shomo and Matt Bartley from Columbus, Ohio. Truue is our creative studio specializing in branding, web design, package design, and 3D modeling. We met at a design agency in 2012 and have been creating together ever since. We also have a big time affinity for nostalgia.

I put hot sauce on everything. (Leading off with that because it’s probably what I’m most known for.) Hot sauce aside, I’m also a designer and illustrator. I love sports, and though most of my teams enjoy letting me down, I keep coming back. I’m a big fan of cheap beer and expensive coffee.



I do the coding around here. I made my first website in “Microsoft Frontage 1998” and haven’t looked back since. I get genuinely excited about tech and I take bowling, mechanical keyboards, and denim way too seriously.
