We are passionate about our customers and fellow entrepreneurs.
Stay up to date with what is happening at Hitch.


We are a heartfelt design and gift boutique in downtown Brookings, South Dakota. Our specialties lie in graphic design, website design, event planning, wedding invitations and wedding styling. 

Where did the name Hitch come from? We hitched our already successful freelance businesses together to join forces and start our dream. The nod to weddings is a bit more obvious as our couples are getting hitched and we love being a part of their day and enjoy what it truly means to have a marriage.

When we meet with a client about their new logo or website, we are truly hitching their business vision with our creative vision. Together, we are a Hitch Studio.

When hitched together, we are mightier; we are teachers, mentors and believers in inspiring others. We bring an added value to your project by thinking and creating in unique ways because of our diverse backgrounds.
