“As a small business owner finding competent and reliable companies to help create and present a professional company brand image is a little daunting. Through the recommendation of other women in business we found Karen Gaudet of Graphic Design Halifax. You will never find anyone more willing to listen, offer valuable suggestions, and most importantly create the designs that you imagined in your head, but couldn’t convey in words. She didn’t just meet my expectations, she exceeded them. Since our first project I have relied on Graphic Design Halifax extensively. Not only does Karen have a passion for design, she has a giving heart and has been instrumental in supporting the design needs for the 1st Women in Business HFX Trade Show ‘A Chance to Shine’. There is only a five star option here. If I could, I would give Graphic Design Halifax ten stars. I don’t believe it is possible to find anyone easier to work with, or who produce exactly the results you were hoping for. If you need graphic design work, I highly recommend Graphic Design Halifax.” Design Mandate: All event materials for The 1st Women In Business Halifax Trade Show (digital and print, including Logo and event booklet) All business graphics for Women In Business Halifax (digital and print, including Logo)
