Titanium Design Studio, Inc. Applies for Patent on World's First Titanium Sizable Ring

TDS Plans to Be Profitable in the Month of August

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 25, 2005 -- Pacific Peak Investments (OTC BB: PPKI) announced today that one of its portfolio companies, Titanium Design Studio, Inc. ("TDS"), has applied for a utility patent for the world's first sizable titanium ring.

David B. South, President of Titanium Design Studio, Inc., stated, "The reaction of the jewelry trade has been one of amazement. Titanium is a huge growth category for the jewelry business and, by solving the sizing issue, TDS is poised to become the major player in the titanium ring category."

Bruce MacGregor, President and CEO of Pacific Peak Investments, stated, "TDS was already the only company in the country offering cast titanium rings, which results in a level of precise detail previously unattainable in titanium rings. Add to that the ability to offer the rings in sizes, and TDS has created a completely new standard in titanium rings which is going to revolutionize the industry. This proprietary process will significantly add to the revenue potential of TDS."

TDS is forecasting a profit for the month of August, a tremendous feat for such an early stage company. Added MacGregor, "We are extremely pleased with the progress TDS has made since we made our investment in the company, both in terms of product and in profitability."

About Titanium Design Studio, Inc.

Titanium Design Studio, Inc. is a Nevada-based corporation founded by David B. South. The Company was founded on its proprietary ability to cast precision titanium pieces resulting in a level of detail not obtainable by milling titanium. The initial focus of the TDS has been the titanium jewelry industry, the fastest growing segment of the jewelry business. Due to proprietary TDS technologies, the firm can economically produce and supply jewelry in shapes and patterns, which were previously considered to be impossible or uneconomical to manufacture. Beyond the jewelry industry, TDS believes its technology has applications in a number of other industries including sporting goods (fishing rods), commemorative coins, aerospace and dentistry.

David B. South has spent over 10 years as a jewelry designer casting and manufacturing custom pieces. Three years ago, Mr. South saw the opportunity to develop jewelry in the new and lucrative metal of titanium. He is a self-taught artisan and has had experience in mass production of silver, gold, brass, bronze and pewter. Mr. South also developed the art of stone in place casting with titanium alloys. His products have been sold to large companies including BMG Music, Universal Studios, and Deseret Book. Mr. South won International Recognition from the World Titanium Council in May 2003 when he was presented an award at the JCK tradeshow in Las Vegas.
