In 2007, owner Jaison Tortorea launched third_shift|studios (ts|s). The company name derives from doing freelance design after working his traditional 8-5 advertising and marketing job. Jaison’s formal education includes bachelor’s degree in graphic and communication design. Jaison’s artistic background gives him the ability to approach car detailing from a unique point of view, which results in a truly aesthetic finish.
In the beginning ts|s initially developed a line of car emblem designs for GM late model muscle car and show car enthusiasts. ts|s Custom Car Emblems quickly established ground as news spread like rapid fire, fueled by web forums and eCommerce convenience. In 2008, ts|s was officially licensed by General Motors to reproduce near-factory quality customized emblems.
With such success in the national car enthusiast world, ts|s turned to an unexplored local venture: car detailing for the Cincinnati tri-state. Utilizing years of car show experience, as well as a marketing + customer service background and the genuine appreciation for automotive aesthetics, the company quickly gained a client base. ts|s Detailing originally began as a weekend hobby for Jaison while juggling his career paths. In May 2010, he resigned from his graphic design career to pursue a passion for automotive appearance full-time. ts|s Detailing was initially just an on-site (mobile) service. In February of 2013, the company opened a 1300 sq. ft. studio in Madisonville, Ohio in order to accommodate more clientele and to offer a broader range of services. Since initiation, ts|sDetailing quickly became synonymous with high quality auto detailing and continues to provide detailing services to participants in tri-state car shows, Cavalcade of Customs and Concours d’Elegance.
