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.
Brad is a guy that elevates himself to the status of “trusted advisor” and not many marketing partners understand how to do that. On top of that, I get e-mails from my staff telling me how wonderful it is to work with Brad. Brad has earned our trust and our business.
Brad came up with a powerful visual look and graphic design that tied together the various “chapters” in my story. What’s more, he is a pleasure to work with—a great listener and highly collaborative!
…finding Brad was the answer. He listened, researched, welcomed honest responses to drafts, adapted, educated us, stayed on deadline and delivered a first-rate creative website that continues to draw rave reviews.
Since completion we have noticed increased customer usage of our website for research and enjoy additional business from these new customers. Brad comes to you from Boswells highly recommended.
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?!”
I have not known of anyone that has worked with him on a project that has not been 100% pleased with the end product but also with the process.
Brad’s creative insight is easily accessible through constant communication and feedback. He’s concerned about your vision, and it shows in the final product. He has a consistent devotion to making your vision a reality.
Brad’s design sense is outstanding. I can communicate a concept and leave it up to him to come up with a beautiful, balanced, and rich interpretation of our ideas. It’s nice to have a few thoughts, and just say go.. and be amazed by what he creates.
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.
I had a terrific experience working with Brad. He was at all times flexible, patient, and responsive. Above all, Brad is a terrific person and working with him was a pleasure.
It was so much fun working with Apt Design on our logos and branding. Brad listened carefully to what everyone had to say and then somehow gleaned the critical points out of that diverse input.
I can count on Brad. When he says he’s going to do something he gets it done. That accountability is probably one of the most important things I can have from someone I work with. Brad is certainly one of the most accountable people I’ve had on my team.
When you hire Brad you get his creative talent mixed with dependability and you end up with someone who is really great to work with.
…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.
Brad is a pleasure to work with: professional and friendly every time. He continuously produces excellent work.
After scouring dozens of author websites I contacted Brad – because his designs are clean and tight, and he is easy to work with. From inspecting his initial concept drafts, it was clear that selecting Brad was the right move.
Brad’s work consistently impresses. He has a great knack for designing material that both fits our mission and pushes our look to be new and fresh and innovative. Working with Brad is a delight. 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.
His ability to grasp an organization’s goals and translate them into images is pitch-perfect. With his upbeat attitude and timely delivery, he is a real pleasure to work with.
I have seen Brad’s web design work on two separate and very different projects. I was impressed on each occasion with the time he took to really understand what the customer wants and needs from each project, leading to a great website both times.
The quality of his work and his professionalism (think pragmatic time management, setting expectations) are superb. He’s a seasoned freelancer and that means good things if you’re a client of a collaborator.
Brad made the process of developing my web site not only painless, but positively enjoyable. His enthusiastic, “can-do” attitude permeated every discussion we had. I would recommend him to any writer looking to develop a web site!
Brad effectively translated my half-formed ideas into a beautiful website, and he gave me lots of choices and allowed plenty of feedback. He also did a great job making the web design flexible enough to evolve with my needs.
Brad’s design work is creative and impeccable — and best of all, he listens well and asks all the right questions, with no assumptions about his clients’ experience.
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.
Brad is a joy to work with. He’s a great listener. He was able to take our vision and make the reality of our design even better! He is a design professional with an understanding of what businesses need: on time, on budget and on point. He was patient with our input, prompt with our…
