Farmhouse Table Produce is the retail front for the Community Farm Connection, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting local farmers in North Central Washington, and to providing residents with a connection to their locally-grown, fresh produce. The organization wanted to the brand the store as fresh, bright, vibrant, and ultimately a place to get delicious fresh produce. Apt Design bridged the gap between the farmhouse and the table with a custom-illustrated, brightly-colored logo. The organization was in love at first sight.
Communicating design concepts can be tricky, so when you find somebody who can consistently understand your abstract needs and ideas and translate them into creative designs that actually work, you latch on to them. That’s why I latched on to Brad at Apt Design at the very beginning and have stayed with him ever since.
It was a pleasure to work with Brad at Apt Design. On the design front, his concepts were spot on, so we never got started on false trails. And he easily and accurately incorporated my feedback in a comfortable back-and-forth dialogue that resulted in a strong final product. I remain extremely pleased with the result.
As an author, I wanted something that would showcase my books, but do so by telling a kind of story. And that is exactly what Brad accomplished. The finished product is beautiful, evocative and efficient, just like a great novel.

It is a collaborative venture that engages the creative process. His patience seems endless—in spite of how much we test it. Brad and Apt Design an ideal fit for us.
Working with a new designer can be overwhelming – but through Brad’s organizational systems and resources, we were able to work through various projects in record turn-around timing. Additionally, our latest posters and designs have captured the hearts and attention of the community. We increasingly receive requests such as “how can I get one of those posters?!”
…artistic intuition that can’t be learned, keen insight into what a project needs, the people skills to lead the creative process, the organizational skills to manage the whole undertaking, and the work ethic to get the job done when and how it should be.
The thing that I have always appreciated about Brad is his timeliness in turning around great new designs even in the face of looming deadlines.
