Darren and I have worked on some fun projects together before, and he always has a great eye for pushing designers to do their best work. A true entrepreneur, Darren is starting a new music production company to make money from a hobby he’s had for years. Thus, Square Productions was born.
Creating a new logo for Square Productions was a fun process. How could we take this idea of a Square and push the design to be interesting and yet reflective of the “square deal” you receive when you work with Square? I came up with a variety of designs, and we forged ahead on one that incorporates a musical note and a modern, slick feel. Darren was already set on using the Novacento font, and it worked into the final design perfectly.
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.
Brad was excellent to work with! He was creative, utilized broad input and was very quick to turn around deliverables. I would highly recommend Brad and Apt Design.
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’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.
His design work and attention to detail is impeccable. He’s also pushed me, and our team to become better designers. When I look at finished work from Brad – I don’t see his face all over it. It’s not about him – it’s about the design. When I look at a finished project and see a happy client, happy budget and happy timeline – well Brad’s face is all over that.
…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.
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.
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?!”
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 was always extremely prompt and professional in turning around what we requested. And Apt Design brought top quality design elements and ideas to the table for our consideration.
I have always found his creativity, professionalism, and work ethic to be outstanding. He consistently meets deadlines, and is honest and up-front as to his timeline when scheduling my projects.
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 is a pleasure to work with: professional and friendly every time. He continuously produces excellent work.
I still get compliments every other week on my site design and I think a huge reason my conversions are through the roof is because of the stellar work you did on that site. That project was by far the smoothest experience I’ve ever had with a contractor and I wouldn’t hesitate an instant to work with Brad again.
Working with Apt Design is like working with a genie….”Your wish is my command!” I simply had to share my vision, and, poof, just like that, it was created! Timely, detailed, and precise. It’s comforting to know that I never have to worry when working with Apt Design. They consistently come through for me, allowing me to focus my energy in other areas.
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.
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.
Brad executes a project with such ease that it really makes for an enjoyable experience. I trust Brad and would highly recommend his design solutions to anyone.
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…
I really can’t recommend Brad highly enough. He’s come through for us time after time, and always delivers outstanding work. His sites are beautiful and functional works of art. Brad has designed the websites for some of our biggest authors. You know he’ll deliver an amazing site, right on schedule.
Brad is an incredible designer. My book’s website is exactly what I wanted, even though I couldn’t even begin to articulate what I wanted before talking to Brad. Not only is the website wonderful, but he finished it faster than he promised, and he was great to work with. I am so glad I hired Brad for this project. I am absolutely delighted with the results.
He’s nailed countless designs for my clients and he gets it every single time.
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.
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!
