Christopher Tobias

Owner / Creative Director / Designer 

Christopher Tobias is the fuzzy brains behind Stereotonic and its Whiz-Bang remedies. Seeing the need for good design in music, Chris, along with fellow designer and friend Bryan Martin, started the endeavor in 2009. Since that time Bryan has gone on to do great things. So, logically, Chris is dependent on an extraordinary network of talented people backing him up. He isn’t new to the design scene, however. Since 1996 he has been peddling his trade as a book cover designer. His work can be found on an array of titles, including a number of New York Times bestsellers.

Matt Ayers

Video Production

Like the boy scouts, Matt is always prepared. Matt comes to Stereotonic with a desire to help the clients communicate articulately the vision and passion behind their project. Matt brings big and small brand experience (and various other talents) to the special sauce used in the Whiz-Bang remedy. He doesn’t see the need for a white board with Pros and Cons, he just sees the objectives and makes them a reality. When not in the office you can find Matt sipping coffee, instagramming, trying out new jokes on people, crowd-surfing at the concert, or playing the air guitar.

  • Working with Stereotonic on my project was such a pleasure, in that they strike the rare balance of being an excellent creatives while also being timely and totally professional. I’d highly recommend Stereotonic to anyone who needs their album art and design to match the level of care and thought that they’ve put into their music.

The Whistles & The Bells

The Whistles & The Bells is former Cadillac Sky member Bryan Simpson. I was thrilled to have been part of his debut project for Bryan's new group. I've heard the tracks on this album and I have to say that it is downright intriguing, personal and honest. The music is killer: think Alt-J meets Mumford, with lots of guitar. This album rocks  a category all its own. The cover art is a bit that way

Branding for “In the Round Tour 2014″

It was a great honor to be asked to design the poster, branding, and other promotional materials for Compassion International's In the Round Tour 2014, featuring Andrew Peterson, Sara Groves, and Robbie Seay. This project was completed for Streamline Productions in Nashville. With the design we tried to give the materials a very light, airy, almost book-like quality, like you might see on a paperback fiction cover. This was to reflect the type of lyrical,
