about us

Westover Studios (aka Westover) was founded by Phillip Pettet in 2008 in a small, back room of his home on Westover Blvd in Lynchburg, Virginia. Phillip kept the name of the business he started with to always remind him of the company's humble beginnings. Nine years, an assembled team of talented designers and creatives, and billions of dollars of growth for his clients later, Westover Studios continues to grow and make an incredible impact for nearly 100 clients.

Westover is built on, and has nearly perfected, the remote site workflow. We have developed processes, workflow, and understanding that drive our efficiency and precision. We take the industry's best practices and pair them together with 21st century technologies, platforms, and applications to allow us to work seamlessly with the onsite counterparts to develop some amazing collaborative work. A lot of unnecessary money is spent in travel expenses that don't specifically benefit the project itself, so we figured that if we could find an effective alternative to traveling, we could save you thousands of dollars... However, if onsite support is what you need, we can do that too.

Over the years, the team at Westover has worked with companies large and small for various types of projects, for nearly every branch of the federal government, state and local governments, non-profit organizations, and private sector companies. This experience gives us the confidence to take on nearly any project while giving you the assurance that we have ability to handle your projects and will provide strategies that work.
