graphic design client testimonials

Here are a few testimonials from client’s who were kind enough to comment on their experience working with me:

Adam R Hill – Attorney/owner of “Hill Law”, Nashville Tn. I designed Adam a logo, business card and letterhead. Here is what he had to say about my graphic design services:

“As someone unfamiliar with the graphic arts, I needed to find a partner who could both describe what I needed and help me create it. Derek made the extra effort to describe how his work could implement the goals I sought, and helped me understand the issues inherent in each step of the design process. We worked extensively on my logo, finding the right balance and impact after making edits to the first design concept. In the end, Derek’s image encompasses my hopes in graphic form.”

“Derek is an artistic and gifted professional who can assist any business in developing an identity. I would highly recommend Derek for his work, responsiveness, value, and ability to implement his client’s goals while also explaining a complex and new environment to those unfamiliar with the artistic realm.”

For those reasons, I highly recommend him for both his artistry, and his professionalism.”

“I wanted to thank you for your speedy work. I am one of those types of people who want everything now, and you were still able to work with me. Derek really gets it. There are some designers who you have to constantly send and resend back to have redone, but Derek seems to understand what you want on a whole new level. I needed a project done in two days and he was able to fit me in. And I have realized that I can be pretty demanding sometimes yet Derek worked with me the whole time. Thanks.”

“Derek has always been able to take an idea and turn it into something amazing. I love what he did with my logo, website and business card design. Even though Derek is my husband, I’d still want to work with him if he wasn’t. I’ve seen the hard work he puts into his projects…even on the difficult ones, he isn’t happy until his client’s are happy.”

“Seeing first hand the dedication Derek puts into his work is something that is hard to find these days. While many cut corners and only see $ signs, he truly seems to care about becoming the best creative he can be. I constantly see him on the design blogs, watching videos, or practicing new things. If there’s one person who knows Derek best, it’s me. If you’re seeking a designer, he’s your guy.”

“I found Design Buddy through a search for local graphic artists to design a logo and business cards for my new start-up business. I don’t know very much about design and marketing, but Derek was very helpful in providing me a starting place and insight into designs that would convey my personality and business goals. Since I also needed a website for my business, Derek designed a site that was simple enough for my very small business needs and budget, but that was also user friendly and complex enough to fit my personal specifications. Another invaluable service that Design Buddy offered with my website was Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – an essential service that gets my site and my business name out there in the search engines to generate traffic to my site.”

“Derek was extremely patient and responsive to my communications. He made the overwhelming process of getting my business design out of my  head and onto the site painless. I have already recommended Design Buddy to others, and look forward to an ongoing to business relationship for future design and website needs.”

We use the logo not only in the website but also on business cards and even on T-shirts and it looks great.

Jordan Haislip – Vice President of “AutoMart”, Nashville Tn. I created Jordan’s logo design and helped him with his store signage.

“Derek was the first person I called for a logo for my car dealership. In the car business I normally get three quotes to make sure I’m getting the best deal, but from the first correspondence with Derek, I decided to stick with him and Designbuddy.  The process couldn’t have been easier. I picked out some logos that were clean, simple, and recognizable. I described to Derek what I liked, and he delivered. He had a draft for me almost instantly, and was always sensitive to my preferences. If and when I need design ideas and work for my dealership again, I know who I’m going with. Thanks, Derek.”
