Vehicle Graphics is one of our specialty’s, we produce high quality and cost-effective vinyl graphics for your company car, cargo van, box truck, trailer, RV and tour bus.

Here are a couple of company vans we did for a local electrical company located in Oxnard CA . The design is simple and clean so contact information is easily seen. Big company logo (which we also created), so it “pops” and can be seen from a hundred feet away. The graphics are cut out of a thick and durable vinyl material that will last for years.

We make each process simple, from concept to completion. Before we do any work, we take a picture of your vehicle and superimpose what the design will look like on your vehicle. Once the design is approved, we cut material and install at your location which cant take 1-3 hours per vehicle depending on the design.

Whether working with a large corporation looking to enhance their vehicle fleet graphics, small mom and pop shop or a startup business just wanting to add some window graphics with their logo and phone number to their car, you will stand out and get attention.  Looking to change your current vinyl graphics?  We will take care of that for you.  Do you have old or outdated vehicle graphics?  TUF Designs can provide you with fresh new vehicle graphics. You can check out some of our vehicle graphics here:

Graphics and Design

Graphics for Album Cover.


Custom graphics for artist’s and bands.

Just finished doing some graphics for a Doo Wop Album cover for artist “SANTOS” yesterday. We have worked on several projects for SANTOS including his website which you can take a look at HERE. Very fun, loving people to work with. Awesome music, and they are doing great things in their ministry.

CD’s will be printed on a 5×5 cardboard sleeve. These sleeves don’t take as much space as the old, bulky CD jewel cases. Which means they are easier to store. I’m still working on putting together the back of the sleeve as well as the CD face which will have mostly text and credit etc.

Graphic and design is our niche, our power spot. It’s where we shine the most! When I started this business in 2004, most of the focus was on our graphic design services. Wether the graphics were for album covers, web design, flyers, business cards or banners. Cool graphic designs was what we were known for.

Today, we’re still going strong with our graphics services as well as web design, logo creation and pretty much anything else relating to graphic design.




Photography and custom cars.


We did a photo shoot of this custom 62 Impala for the Ventura County “Street Rod Calendar” a few months ago at the “Marina Park Harbor” in Ventura. The car will be in the 2017 Street Rod Calendar with 12 other custom cars from Ventura County. We have been helping design and put together the calendar for the past 7 years and hope to keep on with it for many more!

I’m not quite sure if this shot will be the photo used for the calendar since it it’s still being designed? But this is one of my favorite photos. There are a few other good shots with the beach in the background that I really liked, but we do have other cars that were taken on the beach as well, which also look pretty sweet. So it’s going to be a tough call! If you didn’t get last years calendar, you can checkout the Calendar in a PDF HERE.

So, If you like custom cars and photography, make sure to get your hands on a copy of next years calendar. To find out how you can get a copy, contact us on our contact page HERE.

Also, if you or someone you know that lives in the 805, Ventura County area, have a nice street rod that you would like to get into next years calendar, feel free to give us a shout HERE!



Graphic Design Anniversary

This month is our 12th anniversary for our graphic design business!

Graphic Design studio

How about that! We have been doing graphics and design in Ventura County for 12 years! Pretty good right?

What’s new you say? Well, one of the things I have decided to do is to continue with this blog that I started back in 2010. But this time around I will post more informative content, photos, updates and projects that I’m currently working on.

Furthermore, I will be including some how-to videos, graphic design tips and tricks and FAQ’s. And anything else you can think of.

The Old Studio

Here is a picture of the old design studio on Ralston Ave. in Ventura back in 2004. It looks like I may have been working on a brochure design at the time and going over the proofing and edits with the customer over the phone? Or, just being shy in front of the camera and trying to look busy.

Check out that midi keyboard!

When I started TUF Designs back in 2004, I did it all! Including video editing which also included making my own music for videos and TV commercials! Yup, I made my own instrumental music tracks and sound effects!

Continue to scroll down to take a peek at a few older designs and pieces of art I did years ago. From random sketches to logo designs and vector art illustrations.


Artwork Designs

Artwork Designs for hiphop and skateboard brands.

Artwork designs for skateboard decks hand drawn and digitized in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Did these pieces back in 2002 when I used to work for a small silkscreening company printing skateboards. Started off sketching out the art on paper. Once I was happy with the artwork design, I scanned it and created the outlines in Illustrator. From there I exported the line art (vectors) into Photoshop where I added all of the shadows and highlights.

All of this is created in separate channels in Photoshop. Which work a little different than layers. Channels make it a little easier to separate artwork designs. The channels are exported as individual files used for the different colors of the art. In this case, there were only about four screens used since the artwork is monotone. Black, white and two different tones of grey.

The art on the bottom with the boy peeing on the fire hydrant, never made it to a skateboard deck. It was only a concept piece for a new startup business clothing line called “Streets”. However, I did a few other designs that did make it to a few skateboard decks as well as some t-shirts. Still thinking of what I can do this artwork.

I’ve always been into urban style artwork such as graffiti and “hiphop art”. Maybe this is where my style of artwork designs comes from? So when someone ask’s me to do some art for their brand new urban clothing line, I’m all over it!
