I have known Dan for 6+ years and he has been my “go to” resource for graphics and printing. The new logo we are using for our Facebook advertising service was created by him…and it’s been fantastic for us.
The thing that helped me decide to use Dan more was when I would attempt to create something in PowerPoint, and then he would make it look professional. Night and Day! Plus, today’s “tent” business card I use for Post and Boost is honestly the first business card I have ever had where more than one person has said, “Wow…nice card!”
I also appreciate his handling the printing. When he said he can do the graphic work AND the printing and save me money, he is right. He also saves me time because he’ll deliver it to my home. SUPER!

No matter what kind of graphic design challenge we have come up with over the past 10 years, Dan has been a patient, dependable, friendly, and easy-to-work-with partner. He understands our business, works quickly, and is very reasonably priced. Dan has become a highly valued freelance member of our product development team, and we love working with him!

After going through several designers and spending way too much money, I was nervous to try one more designer for my skin care line. But Dan nailed it. He sent back different options, he listened and he really worked with me to make sure we got it right, together. I’ve recommended him to many of my business clients since, and I’ll continue to. He’s a designer with a keen eye, and heart.

Dan is one of the most talented, creative graphic artists I have ever met. His attention to detail and unique visionary approach to projects enable him to bring new perspectives, effective messaging, and innovation to packaging, displays, and projects. Dan is well respected among his colleagues for his talent and vision as well as his work ethic, integrity, and leadership abilities. I highly recommend him in a capacity that allows him to contribute to organizational goals, provide leadership and direction for creative teams, and inspire others to realize the rewards of exceeding expectations. Anything less would be an underutilization of this wildly talented individual.

Dan is easy and fun to work with. He always “gets” my ideas and is able to put them into a really great design. I would highly recommend working with him on your next creative project!
- Jennifer Dawn, Founder & CEO of Jennifer Dawn Coaching
I have had the pleasure of working with Dan on several fast paced photo shoots. He is cool under pressure, able to get hands on, interact with kids and adults seamlessly and always gets great results. He is perfect for managing large and small projects, keeps the show going and is creative and quick thinking. I can always rely on Dan to direct our shoots and give me clear direction, yet I feel he values my ideas and will give me immediate great feedback. He is an asset to the project and great to work with, manages people well and at the end of the day we always feel great about what we accomplished. He's a fabulous person to be around.
