Welcome to Soapbox!

The portfolio and creative company of Charlie Tourtellotte. Here you can view my most recent work in the areas of Graphic Design, Web Design and Development, Motion Design, Illustration and Photography.

With over eight years experience, I have had the of pleasure working with high-profile entertainment, large-scale corporate and small business clientele, providing: interactive projects, branding, animation, social media and print work. I love to conceptualize and develop unusual and clever solutions to design challenges.




Advertisements, direct mail pieces, posters, brochures, catalogs, trade show graphics and booths, menus, business cards, letterhead, envelopes, CD artwork, large scale banners, product packaging, vehicle wraps… your brand identity can be extended across an unlimited number of mediums and Soapbox designs them all.


You never get a second chance to make a first impression, which is why it is very important you have a professionally designed logo. A logo should be simple, clean, timeless, and instantly recognizable, while telling a story about your organization and its products or services. Logo design is a specialty of Soapbox and I encourage you to look through my logo design portfolio to see some of my work.


Whether you are a start-up company looking to develop your first website or an established organization in need of a website redesign, I am ready to help. I create websites that not only look good, but help your company reach marketing goals (data collection, product sales, making the phone ring) and set up analytics to measure the results. Soapbox can also develop blogs, e-commerce stores, and membership sites.

Jackson Glen Logo Design

By Charlie Tourtellotte

Jackson Glen is a mixed use building that includes 26 private residences and 3 large commercial spaces located in Glendale. The direction for the logo was to use the architectural focal point of the building, or its front, which faces Colorado (main thoroughfare). They wanted a logo that is more contemporary in style, something “edgy”.

Colorado University Anology Illustrations

By Charlie Tourtellotte

Created for the University of Colorado.  The task for this project was to create 10 scenes with 5 different caricatures designed after well known and highly regarded figureheads and related locations at the University.  Each Photoshop deliverable was required to be fully editable by the client in order that they could alter text, and change position and color of objects in the scene. The character heads were modeled with Zbrush and 3ds Max then comped into the various scenes with Photoshop.
