Mental Shed Studios

Mental Shed Studios

Mental Shed is a Wisconsin-based graphic design and internet marketing studio, specializing in creative, conceptual design, key art, and digital strategy for horror and other entertainment.

This backwoods internet outhouse of the devil was founded by Charlie Hintz in 2002 as a method to spread his particular brand of madness. Through targeted content marketing, organic SEO methods and a steady flow of ad revenue, the site grew into a full-time job. This eventually spurred Charlie to begin using the knowledge and experience gained from its operation for good rather than evil.

No, wait…it’s still evil. But the good kind of evil that everyone likes. With gratuitous nudity and bloodshed.

Today, the Mental Shed is a boutique horror design and marketing monster with its claws and tentacles deeply embedded in the guts of search engine optimization, internet marketing and social media trends. Check out some vile Mental Shed spawn with highly successful SEO, content marketing and social media strategies: Cult of Weird and Wisconsin Sickness
