Here are some insights into my process and the results, direct from my clients…
Erin brilliantly clarified what I envisioned in my mind and turned it into a reality.
Before working with Erin, my brand and design elements were “all over the place”. Not only were my prospective clients confused, so was I! My message and offers had no connection to my visuals. My brand was bland and boring. I was embarrassed to even give out my website address because my site looked so unprofessional. The worst part, I was attracting the wrong clients, and more often, no clients at all because they couldn’t figure out what I offered, who I offered it to, and what results they’d get from working with me (the mismatched hodge-podge “brand design” certainly didn’t help in the credibility department!)
After working with Erin, I have a cohesive design that aligns with my message and vision, clearly conveys my brand type, and reveals my authentic personality. Now when prospective clients visit my website they know immediately who I am, what I offer, and the results I deliver. I finally have a distinctive identity that is in integrity with my expertise and personality, and allows me to stand out in a crowded marketplace. Potential clients instantly know if I’m the right fit for them. They transition into high paying-clients easier and quicker. They feel confident in my abilities and services because my brand says: expertise, results, innovation, exceptional experience.
Over the years I’ve worked with numerous designers and branding experts who just didn’t “get it”. Erin brilliantly clarified what I envisioned in my mind and turned it into a reality. She knows what it takes to design beautiful and meaningful elements that actually work! In this New Economy where you must stand out and be remarkable in order to survive and thrive, your brand is essential to your business success. You cannot afford to be bland and boring or to send the wrong message to your potential clients. Erin’s Profitable Brand Strategy Intensive, along with her unique mentoring and one-on-one brand strategy + design services, is one of the best investments I’ve ever made for my business. Thank you, Erin!

Erin Ferree is my hero. I hired another vendor to create an ibook and waited for 2 months only to find that vendor had no idea what to do and created a huge mess. Erin stepped in, created a gorgeous ibook which exceeded my wildest dreams, and got it launched in just a couple of weeks. Don’t make my mistake- hire Erin right away!

Hey there Erin Ferree – I’m loving your Summit – the content, the guests, the brilliant info. Lapping it up – thank you! I sparkled up my free gift recently and am excited to give it a further tweak based on the ‘beauty’ tips!
Way Forward Communication
Really enjoying The Future Of the free Gift Summit. But considering I’m in Australia I’d like you to know Erin Ferree that not a lot gets me out of bed for 5am calls! So you’re definitely doing something right! LOL
“I first contracted Erin to help me with understand my brand style. Her insight was valuable in helping me structure how I presented my services. She has also helped me with a logo design for a new brand. She very quickly understood what I was looking to achieve, and I’m receiving rave reviews for the work she did for me. Thanks, Erin!!”
Strategic Success Mentor
Working with Erin was a true gift. She is a talented branding expert and through her work I was able to gain new clarity about my brand and who I serve. She taught me to look at the big picture of my business and how I was communicating with my clients, which were areas I had been neglecting. I feel more confident in how I communicate and have a greater sense of continuity about my business and brand. Erin’s work goes far beyond what I thought of as branding. She guided me and provided wonderful support so I was ready and prepared with everything I needed to launch my next program. It was real business planning and preparedness that made sure my program and communications were clear and included all the branded components necessary for success!
Self Care & Lifestyle Mentor
Erin is fun, warm, encouraging and really knows her stuff. She is a leader, if not the leader, in helping soul-o-preneurs and small businesses know what they’re about, so they can create a brand that’s going to grow their business.
I decided to invest in her training because my clients are designers, people who know about branding – so my branding has to be clear, communicative & look on-trend. I already had some ideas, but they were sketchy and I didn’t think they’d pass muster with my clients.
The class was fun, thought-provoking, and useful. I got very clear on what sort of business I’m running. I’m now working with a designer and am just a couple of weeks of away from launching my ideal website and finally having business cards I’m proud of. My designer said she wished all her clients were as clear as me on what they wanted!
Thanks to Erin, I am clear on my brand, I made good contacts in the class, and what I learned helped me to work better with my own clients.

I need to give some SERIOUS love to Erin Ferree for making my words come alive with her beautiful and brilliant artistry with images and fonts! She, in a matter of HOURS created my Sacred-Self, Impact, and Influence Mastermind Registration Package. I cried. AND she set it up so that it is in a Word file so I can keep tweaking the copy as I grow.
Erin, you are brilliant at what you do and you are sooooooooooooo generous! Thanks for helping me put my best foot forward when I needed to go in confident and proud. Thank you for your grace with my nerves and for helping me to shine. You were angel when I needed one. Thank you so very very much.
If you need someone who is kind, makes you look REALLY good, and who can quickly customize a solution that works for your special needs AND stays in budget, I highly recommend Erin Ferree!

Having a brand and an image that speaks for itself makes my “job” in selling who I am and what I do so much easier.
I had a very strong intuitive hit that you were THE person who would be able to capture the essence that was missing and very much needed for me and my business.
The brand clarity discovery process was journey that opened me up to many new possibilities and ways of presenting myself. You asked the right questions to get me thinking in ways that I need to support the creation of my brand, and you are so open and confident with what you do that I know the final product will brilliant – and it is! You have the ability to touch a person’s business soul and make it come alive.
I feel so much stronger with my presence. Having a brand and an image that speaks for itself makes my “job” in selling who I am and what I do so much easier. I am excited to present my cards and have people look at my website, and that alone is priceless.
Spiritual Healer and Channel
Erin’s strategic brand designs for my company, products and programs have made my company hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
I have worked with Erin for over a decade as my brand designer. She is truly THE most talented and strategic brand designer for entrepreneurs and small businesses that I have ever met.
Kelly O’Neil International, The Ignite Program and Marketing to Millionaires
This woman is a genius! Not only does she have design skills, but she writes copy and she grasps the essence of your business and tells you more than you knew about it within 10 minutes! Talk about instant brand clarity and full service!
Not only did my investment in her pay off, it will change the trajectory of my business.
Erin reviewed my new website under development and made excellent visual change suggestions, color and photos. It now feels much more like me!
The Renegade Leader
Thanks for the teleseminar today, I had a big ah-ha about my clients being idealistic and driven that I’ve never been able to put words to before. I can see how directly addressing that in my communications could help them feel connected to me and my business.
I’m now building a brand based on my biggest desires for my future, and it feels very empowering.
“For 2 years, I had been using a pre-made website from the school where I trained in nutrition. I modified it with pictures and video, but I still didn’t feel that it represented my company or the message that I wanted to convey. The shyness I felt around this website and my older branding was also keeping me from reaching out to collaborate with the big people in my industry. It was a sign that things needed to change.
When I signed up to receive weekly tips from Erin, I downloaded the recording of a call she did about branding. As I listened to it, I knew that my brand was outdated, especially since I had personally grown so much in the past year. I had also just chosen a name for my company, but hadn’t yet molded my company to the name. Her call inspired me to completely revamp my website that weekend, and to write out the new ways that I would begin to speak about my company.
I’m now building a brand based on my biggest desires for my future, and it feels very empowering. As I’ve lined up with my passions, the people around me have been mirroring my confidence and providing compliments and encouragement. I’m finally jumping into what feels right and now I feel proud to shout my message out to the world.”
Nutrition Mentor and Founder of www.ParisianPicnics.com
When I met Erin, I was really impressed with her radiance and passion for the work that she does.
Before meeting Erin, I did all the designs for my branding myself, having a background in computer arts and graphic design. The first thing I have learned from her was the importance of message and meaning behind the artwork of your logo, colors and fonts. That your design is not just about pretty pictures.
After having a branding consultation with Erin, I have learned so much about my graphics and how I can improve on them. She has taught me how to make stronger impression and how to convey power behind the colors and fonts I choose that fit me, my personality and most importantly, attract the right clients! I was able to take her suggestions and improve my own designs to make them stand out.
Because of all this work, I was able to see some significant changes. Not only do I love my new designs more, I can actually see them working. I am starting to attract the right people who are a much better fit to work with me than before.
Empower Yourself for Love
Before talking with Erin, I had been struggling with my business message for months, going back and forth about where to put the focus. I finally hired Erin for a short consultation and it’s not exaggeration to say I learned more in the first hour with her than I had in months trying to do it myself. She has an amazing ability to hear what you’re saying and laser in on a single branding message. I’ve still got some work to do, but I’ve got so much more clarity going forward.
Real Food Changes
I got your Perfect Brand Report – it resonates with me so completely that it takes my breath away.
I spoke with my Graphic Designer Gal and talked about all the things you suggested. She agreed with your analysis and we will be looking at making some major changes in 2011. Some of your pieces were certainly put into place right away and we use your ideas as a way to guide all advertising, marketing, etc. Your consultation was extremely helpful and timely given I had just revamped my defining statement and with it the true definition of what I do.
Your consulting package went above and beyond my expectations and helped me determine critical elements for my future look. You’re passionate about what you do and that enthusiasm can’t help but propel me forwards!
Simply put, she nailed it.
“I hired Erin to design a logo for my copywriting agency. Simply put, she nailed it. She knew and understood my target market based on an initial consultation, and then she created a logo that spoke directly to them and their needs, while conveying exactly what my agency is all about.
And she kept me involved every step of the way, so I knew what to expect and was able to offer my input so there were no surprises.Her expertise on the subject of design is unmatched in my book. Her strategic and creative approach to everything she does puts her work at a much higher level than anything else I’ve seen. She does nothing by accident. And mark my word, she is as patient and accommodating as they come.
In fact, I liked my logo so much that I immediately hired her to design my business card and a template for my sales kit and additional marketing materials. The results were incredible. My agency now has a recognizable logo and a visual identity that I can use on my website, brochures, and everywhere else I need to make an impact.
If you’re searching for a brand strategist and expert graphic designer, save yourself the time and hassle of looking anywhere else. Just give Erin a call and let her take it from there. It will be the best decision you make all year.”
Erin created a WOW logo and webpage that sealed the deal on 3 big package executive clients and an invitation to appear on a 1 hour television show – all within 72 hours of going live.
“She has a unique workbook that dives deep into the heart & soul of my business, my target market’s psyche and the pulse of my industry . Several of my colleagues have their own WOW logo’s designed by Erin. All are Brilliant. What a gift she has!”
The Legacy Track
I tell everyone I can that you designed my logo for my new business.
“I never could have come up with something as creative and multi-faceted as you did, and really appreciated the way you asked a tremendous number of questions in order to understand who I am, what I do, who my target market is and how I want my business to be present in the world.”
The final product reflects my style and the future direction of my company.
“I wanted to send you a note to say “thanks” for everything. I am very happy with the work you did on my brand design. The final product reflects my style and the future direction of my company. You made the process so easy and really listened to my thoughts and ideas. The workbook you developed is a great tool for helping your customers clarify their vision and style and getting them to think about how they want to portray their business. I would also like to thank you for your expert advice regarding what works best in graphic design.”
The thing I LOVE about working with Erin is how FAST she “gets” the concepts we need, and how she ties everything together.
“Before I found Erin, I thought a logo was just a picture and some words, so I tried some of the online logo package deals at other companies and I was seriously disappointed: they were just order takers. Then I began to search for the “real deal”: someone who could come to appreciate my business for who we are, why we’re unique and what we stand for, then capture it and render it on the printed page. The thing I LOVE about working with Erin is how FAST she “gets” the concepts we need, and how she ties everything together. Our logo compliments our letterhead, which ties in with the business cards, which look great with the thank you notes, and it all lines up well with the website. Everything was custom, made-to-order and there is nothing cookie-cutter about her work. When you want more than “just a logo”—that is, when your business is ready for the next level of having a real, living identity—you’ll be very glad you went with Erin.”
Physician Family Financial Advisors
I thought I needed a new logo. What I got was a new business!
“When I first approached Erin to help me with my rebranding, I had some concerns about her ability to capture the inherent contradiction of my business. My principal concern was the balance between having a predominantly conservative target market and the desire to “stand out”. I shouldn’t have worried.
The branding exercise she took me through forced me to reassess the fundamentals of the business and gave me a logo and other material that I now hand out with pleasure. The logo is simply the end of the journey, not the reason for it.”
People and Process Limited
She “gets” the business side of things.
“It’s a given that any good designer is creatively blessed. But a great designer is also insightful, practical, and dedicated. Erin is all of these and more. Her designs are beautiful and effective. She ‘gets’ the business side of things. And she’s a consummate professional.”
Women In Consulting
Erin has an exceptional talent for assessing and understanding her clients.
“She guided me through a well thought out process to deliver a prominent logo to represent my company. Her patience and motivation helped me move beyond any personal indecisiveness of having to choose an image that will accurately symbolize my company.
As someone who takes great pride in my work, I felt my company logo must provide the same sentiment. Erin has successfully created a logo that I am proud to display.”
Erin is a an expert at designing sites that define who and what your business is about.
“She’s able to articulate your message and translate it into a different language – web design – and does so in a timely, creative and cost-effective manner.
Erin is patient and knowledgeable and took the time to answer all my newbie questions. She is extremely efficient and responsive, returning emails and phone calls quickly; and she was able to develop a logo and provide a finished product – even when I was unable to clearly convey my needs and wants.”
On several occasions I gave her a logo design or a web page design that someone else had created and she took it to the next level.
“If you’re building your first website, or evolving the one you have now to get you to the next level in the growth of your business, I would recommend that you work with Erin Ferree. We’ve worked on a number of websites and other design projects over the years and I’ve always found Erin to be no-nonsense, bottom line and full of wise suggestions.
Erin understands doing business on the web. If you need a sales page, a shopping cart, autoresponders, an online offer, or a blog, that’s her bread and butter. I’ve encouraged her to look at software and services that I was interested in, and she rarely hesitates to investigate something new that could be of benefit to her clients. She’s comfortable with many kinds of technology. I like that she’s willing to try new things and to steer me away from products she doesn’t like.
She asked insightful questions to help me identify how to translate my vision into colors and images…
Erin helped me design my logo, business card, and website when I started my own law firm. She asked insightful questions to help me identify how to translate my vision into colors and images, listened carefully, came up with great ideas, and was patient and very responsive throughout the process. I am looking forward to working with Erin on future projects!”

Erin is one of those rare graphic designers who is both talented and easy to work with at the same time.
“Not always the case! She is flexible in dealing with unusual situations (are there any usual ones anymore?) and produces work that our clients love. Try her, this is one decision you won’t regret!”
Bishop Market Resources
Erin has a great process for helping you ‘get to’ how you want to brand your business.
“And it shows in a great end result!”
She quickly pinpointed the true essence of our ideas.
“Erin created and pulled together an incredible logo and brochure for me and my colleague in a timely way that allowed us to go “live” ahead of schedule. I highly recommend hiring Erin to develop graphics for your business.”
“Erin is a delight to work with. As the creator of our logo and brochure design, she was able to easily synthesize our varied thoughts. We loved her creativity and quick turn around. She quickly pinpointed the true essence of our ideas. I highly recommend her.”
I walked away with an incredible amount of valuable information in a short amount of time.
“I have known Erin for quite some time through Women in Consulting (WIC). I recently heard her speak at a WIC luncheon where she discussed “10 Tricks to Easily Refresh Your Website”. I walked away with an incredible amount of valuable information in a short amount of time. Erin loves to share her knowledge, has great insight, thinks outside the box and is an absolute pleasure to work with! I will be using Erin for my future website design upgrades. I highly recommend her services, as well as her eBooks, Teleclasses and Workbooks.”
I didn’t have any ideas when we began, but Erin created a logo that was exactly what I wanted.
“Erin designed the logo for my company and being that I am an insurance agent without a creative bone in my body, I needed all of the help in the world. Erin guided me through the process by starting at the basics and completed with the design of my business cards and letterhead.
I didn’t have any ideas when we began, but Erin created a logo that was exactly what I wanted. From the color selection to the font and beyond, everything she did was just right. Establishing a logo for your company is a very difficult process, but working with Erin made it quick and painless.”
Pat Richard Insurance Agency
We love the classy, yet “hip” design that continues to look fresh today.
“Erin created the KickStart Alliance identity pieces in 2005. We love the classy, yet “hip” design that continues to look fresh today. Erin is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.”
…a good sense of how to design a logo that resonated with me.
“Erin Ferree is a true find! She was the perfect fit for my small business needs—logo, business cards, and letterhead. The challenge we faced was my short timeframe. Erin adjusted her schedule and we both committed to a project schedule that was aggressive but realistic. Erin also has a fabulous tool to get started—a questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about the business, personality, general preferences, which helps her get a good sense of how to design a logo that resonated with me. In addition, it was a great tool to help me focus and hone my business objectives. Erin is an expert and very professional — and provided exactly what I needed and wanted.”
Morton Event Contulting
She was the perfect blend of creative ideas, knowledge and implementation.
“I worked with Erin to brand my company, GlamourByLBD. From the beginning, her professionalism became evident. She was the perfect blend of creative ideas, knowledge and implementation. She did what she said and she said what she did. I continue to use the branding logo and materials that she designed for me and I will hire her again when it is time to re-brand. Check out her work on my website, www.glamourbylbd.com”
Laura Beth DeHority
Glamour by LBD
After looking at lots of design portfolios and not seeing the look I was after, a friend told me to check out Erin’s work on the web.
There I saw lots of clean, simple, effective logos, so I called Erin about designing one for my new retail website selling unique products for every figure skater and fan. After discussing in detail what my business, www.skatingismylife.com, was about and what I wanted to convey, Erin sent me an array of logo choices. We steadily narrowed them down to the final one, which I’m quite happy with. Today, I sell a popular T-shirt with my logo embroidered on it.
After that, I asked Erin to design the look of my website. She incorporated the colors of my logo and organized it in a pleasing way. My site draws lots of compliments, and it’s design has unquestionably helped me draw customers.
Skating Is My Life
Her process is remarkable; she spurred me to do an in-depth review of my market and goals and relate that to logo ideas.
“I asked Erin to develop a logo and stationery for my new business. Her process is remarkable; she spurred me to do an indepth review of my market and goals and relate that to logo ideas. Excellent documentation, timely responses, helpful followup after the job was completed. I am very happy with my results.”
Beth Martin Quittman
Erin is an excellent listener and has a talent for pulling the core issue out of disorganized thoughts.
“I contacted Erin at the very start of my business, and she took me through the entire design process to build my brand. We started with the logo, and then moved on to visual vocabulary, advertising and finally my website.
Throughout the entire process, Erin was extremely helpful and responsive. When I wasn’t happy with something, she made her best effort to change it. When there was a problem, she made her best effort to fix it. When I look at my investment in Erin’s small business branding process, I know that it was worth every penny and I would recommend her to any small business owner looking for an identity.”
Each look she comes up with is original and complementary with the other representations of me online.
“I have been working with Erin now for a few months and she has done an amazing job reinventing my web presence. We started with a custom twitter page, then a vastly improved website with a matching blog, and currently she’s working on a new and improved (yet cohesive design) for my newsletter.
All along Erin has bowled me over with how quick and creative she is with the kit of parts we’ve put together. Each look she comes up with is original and complementary with the other representations of me online. I love it!
I recommend Erin to other business owners every chance I get and will continue to do so because I believe wholeheartedly that the part of the world that doesn’t know about Erin is missing out on a true talent in the logo, web design and branding space.”
The Growth Coach
Our organization has a professional, first-rate image that makes us stand out from other organizations.
“Erin has worked for me on several occasions, for both my own projects and clients. She is very creative and reasonably priced, too. She has done an incredible job for Women in Consulting (WIC) for several years: her work has really ensured our organization has a professional, first-rate image that makes us stand out from other organizations.”
L2M Consulting and Women In Consulting
Erin Ferree is the most reliable webmaster we’ve ever had!
“She is always prompt with maintenance and very quick with any updates we need posted.
Erin is ALWAYS available when we need to speak with her, and very quick to accommodate needs. If not able to immediately respond to a request—she is very honest about when she will be able to get to the item. She is very upfront with us about what she can and cannot do regarding our ideas. And, we get a lot of compliments about our Website because of her!”
The Wild Horse Sanctuary
Erin, being extremely patient, tolerant, and creative worked with us every step of the way to really give us what we wanted.
“My partner and I were really hesitant to begin finding or creating a logo that would really speak who we are and what we do. Erin, being extremely patient, tolerant, and creative worked with us every step of the way to really give us what we wanted.Her willingness and ability to work with us collaboratively was a delightful experience. I would recommend her to anyone interested in creating a unique and innovative design for themselves and their business. We will continue to work with Erin as our web site manager and designer. I feel grateful and relaxed to have this in her very capable hands.”
She was quickly able to translate my general ideas into a logo that captured the essence of what I had verbalized.
“Starting a new business has been fraught with a lot of challenges. Because I am not an artistic person, one of those challenges was clearly to design a logo and then use that logo on my business cards, envelopes, letterhead and PowerPoint presentations. Erin made that challenge easy to overcome. She was quickly able to translate my general ideas into a logo that captured the essence of what I had verbalized. She then applied that logo to distinctive business cards, envelopes and letterhead. She also produced PowerPoint templates that tastefully incorporate the logo. All-in-all she did a splendid job of translating my verbal requirements into an effective and artistic set of business tools.”
Seascape Financial Group
If given the choice, rather than hearing, “What a gorgeous outfit!” we women would prefer to hear, “You look wonderful.”
“Similarly, I prefer that the design of my business promotions motivate people to buy, rather than to simply comment on the beauty of the typefaces I’ve selected. That’s why I’m a huge fan of Erin’s!”
Her style is straightforward and elegant without being harnessed by intoxicating marketing trends.
“Erin Ferree is without a doubt an emerging talent. Her style is straightforward and elegant without being harnessed by intoxicating marketing trends. She is agreeable without abandoning her artistic integrity. She never losses sight of the profound history of symbolism that she incorporates into her designs. She has the remarkable capacity of maintaining her clients’ bigger picture while simultaneously attending to incredible detail. With her natural bedside manner, those of us lucky to have worked with her know for sure how fortunate we are she chose this profession.”
There’s something about her work that’s not only fantastic looking, it’s the ‘wow that’s us’ factor too. She understands who we are and what we’re offering and communicates that perfectly for us.
“I’ve used a range of different graphic designers. It’s hard to know what to expect, and even harder to describe what I’m looking for. With other designers I’ve been happy with the look they’ve given us, but with Erin it’s been different.
There’s something about her work that’s not only fantastic looking, it’s the ‘wow that’s us’ factor too. She understands who we are and what we’re offering and communicates that perfectly for us. I don’t know how she does it, it’s like some kind of magic.
The posters were really eye-catching. We had many people stopping to find out more. And also because they were simple and beautiful people stood there and read them.”
Everyone commented on how attractive the logo is and how it relates to my new theme of the V3 — Total Image Program (Visual, Vocal, Verbal).
“Thank you so much! I’m awaiting my new business cards and have already used the new logo on some materials for a workshop I taught recently. Everyone commented on how attractive the logo is and how it relates to my new theme of the V3 — Total Image Program (Visual, Vocal, Verbal). Thank you so much — I’m very, very happy.”

Not only is she talented, but she will push towards what will market you best.
“I highly recommend Erin Ferree. I have referred her to a number of my clients (and myself too!) and she is fabulous.”
Sagacent Technologies, Inc.
I still love my “look” so much that it lifts my spirit even under extreme time pressures.
“I know I already said thanks, but just to make sure…. I was really stressed when discovering late last week that all my presentation information was due on 8/1. I knew I could just use a regular PowerPoint template, however was looking for that extra edge to give me more confidence with being on a “big time” speaker agenda.I think that having the PPT format you put together for me not only added to my confidence, but inspired me as I was working on the presentation. I still love my “look” so much that it lifts my spirit even under extreme time pressures. I turned in all the required elements last night around 11 pm, feeling quite accomplished.
Thanks again for your willingness, help and great job as always.”
You are easy to deal with, customer-focused, skilled at synthisizing my descriptions of who I am and what I like as an artist down to something coherent as a brand.
You and I come from different directions on this project — you are linear and I am …. well…..not. I speak “artist-talk” and you speak engineer-web-site. I am giving you colors, feeling and personality and you turn that into a web page.
You have a high level of professionalism. By that I mean that you stay focused on the work, your ego doesn’t get in the middle, you communicate in a productive way, you do what is necessary to please your customer, and you are extremely flexible. You are patient and just as concerned about details as I am.
I have felt all along that this wonderful work was being accomplished through a partnership between us. I think that makes for work that feels good and looks great and is highly representative of my vision. Thanks!
Erin, you know, I REALLY love my website. Every time I look at it, it makes me happy. And it feels so ME. Thanks for being so good at what you do.”
Rarely I have found someone this talented who did not have a mightier than thou attitude.
“I have worked with a lot of people in various capacities for a very long time, including as the director/coordinator of a large law school web project; rarely I have found someone this talented who did not have a mightier than thou attitude.You were effective, gracious, generous with your time, extremely patient and willing to include my modifications in your work. During the card design, I was particularly demanding and asked for many modifications, your patience with my exigences was flawless.
Thank you so very much for putting your creativity to work for us.”
She is able to hear what I want (and need) to express in my design needs and offer many examples and special touches to get the greatest impact.
“What I love about working with Erin, is her efficiency with all details (start to finish) on a job. What makes her stand out is that her speed does not compromise her design. I also love that she is so competent with her skills and knowledge. She is able to hear what I want (and need) to express in my design needs and offer many examples and special touches to get the greatest impact. I recommend her to anyone who values high quality in both design and in service.”
Laura Burkey Coaching
Best of all, I appreciate her laser-like, straightforward approach to getting small business owners what they need.“Erin is at the top of her game. Having consulted with Erin on several occassions, she takes no short cuts with providing services for clients. She is extremely knowledgeable, creative, and professional.

A company logo is so much more than just a graphic element, and Erin guides you through the process so that the essence of your business is truly communicated.
“Erin is a master at creating company logos.I am incredibly pleased with my logo, and I recommend her highly.”
Erin is a super designer who understands her customers’ needs better than anyone else I’ve worked with.
“I know that when I work with Erin I’ll get not only the right solution, promptly, at a fair price, but also one that is sustainable. This is what sets her apart from her competitors. I’ve consulted Erin on a broad range of branding, design, and web site needs, and she’s always come through promptly with a superb solution. You’ll never regret your choice to work with Erin.”
You… offered logo design options that capture the spirit and identity of the business.
Thank you for your terrific work on this logo development project. You clearly presented the process we’d use for working together, listened carefully for my preferences and business goals, and then offered logo design options that capture the spirit and identity of the business. I appreciate your willingness to explore and explain alternatives during the project and your clear communications. I’m sure we will partner on future projects and will eagerly recommend your services to others.
The best thing about working with Erin is how incredibly responsive she is.
“Erin has done a terrific job of keeping my site fresh, clean and up-to-date. When we’re working together, I know things will get done quickly and, more importantly, they’ll get done correctly — the first time!”
Thank you Erin for providing me with everything I needed to get my small business going and for making me look as good as the ‘big guys’ !
Bravo! to Erin L. Ferree. She has proven that excellent customer service and a job well done are alive and well! Her artistic eye is superb, her follow-up second to none, and her commitment to her customers impeccable. It was a pleasure working with Erin, and I am thrilled at the final product: on time, on budget, and everything looks fantastic! Thank you, Erin!
Erin provided me the ultimate in advertising services for a small start-up. From logo design, to letterhead, to t-shirts, to website design to a customized wheel cover for my Honda CR-V, Erin did it all! And, she always gave me top-notch quality at a very fair price.

I can’t look at our business cards without breaking into a huge grin.
You certainly did good work for us.

If you are serious about your business, this is one of the first steps you need to take.
Erin’s patience and creativity, coupled with the right amount of persistence, helped me through the process of creating the first logo and identity for a business that has been around for years. I would not hesitate to recommend Erin to anyone who is truly interested in improving the image of their business.

I love being listened to about my desires in design, and it is really exciting to see those expressed thoughts turn into an accurate representation of my business.
“I have had a very positive experience working with Erin Ferree. I love being listened to about my desires in design, and it is really exciting to see those expressed thoughts turn into an accurate representation of my business. I love the finished product and I have found the process to be easy and timely. Erin, I would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone!”
Erin’s big strength is that she has educated herself about marketing–she understands how graphic design and logos fit into the bigger picture, and thus she is very “real” when it comes to thinking about the ultimate effect her designs will achieve.
“Erin and I have just started working together on a project and she is not only a talented designer, but she is also lightening fast with her turn around time, and very reliable. She’s the only graphic designer I’ve ever worked with that actually has thought out a way to *really* work with small businesses while respecting their budgets. She’s also the only graphic designer I’ve ever worked with who is both talented and reliable–I’ve found most to be flaky, difficult, unable to meet deadlines–very frustrating people who make me want to tear my hair out.
My experiences with Erin thus far is that she is very knowledgable and really tries very hard to watch out for her clients and save them money by avoiding design solutions that might look good now–but wind up not being as flexible in the future.
Working with Erin made completing our website painless!
“She stepped in and rescued our “plain vanilla” site and turned it into an easy to navigate and clean destination for our potential clients. We are a new consulting firm with very few resources and no “technical” background. She was flexible, patiently answered our questions and was able to translate our direction into a great website while working within our budget and extremely tight schedule.”
“Erin is a pleasure to work with. She gets it right the first time, within budget and time frame. And the work is great. I would use Erin for all my website and graphic work.”

The package just completely “matched” Kathie. Considering that she uses her KAS, which really reveals nothing about her business, other than her “marketing,” you captured the personal essence of her.
Kathie Smith, who rode with me to the WIC meeting a week ago gave me her new business card, AND, she showed me her new letterhead. All of which you created. The package just completely “matched” Kathie. Considering that she uses her KAS, which really reveals nothing about her business, other than her “marketing,” you captured the personal essence of her. Her rather relaxed style, the colors of her clothes. Kathie tells me she won your donated bid from the Silent Auction.
I highly recommend Erin. She is highly versed in her craft; and her many creative suggestions come from the angle of using graphics to interpret a person’s brand identity.
Normally I would consider logo design for a new venture to be a tedious chore, but with Erin I had a blast getting two logos designed for me!
“Not only does Erin do top-notch work, but the work has always been delivered sooner than the eminently reasonable promised dates I was given.”
Now, people tell me that my materials “look like me,” and I am proud to show them off.
I wanted a professional look, while conveying the idea that I provide collaborative, creative, effective solutions for my clients. You were successful in achieving that message. Now, people tell me that my materials “look like me,” and I am proud to show them off. Your well organized process–including the questionnaire and emailed information exchanges–made this very easy for me. You did all the work, I simply made the selections. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

Your finished product stands for itself, as it simply, elegantly, and boldly conveys all the elements of our identity that we hoped to express.
“I just wanted to thank you for the really excellent work you did on our logo recently. Transitioning from one corporate identity to another in a short period of time was a stressful event for us, but your handling of the logo made that aspect of it a complete breeze.
The high level of professionalism with which you handled all stages of the process, and your thorough understanding of all the elements in those stages, gave us terrific security in relying on your suggestions and output. I think your finished product stands for itself, as it simply, elegantly, and boldly conveys all the elements of our identity that we hoped to express. Thanks again for a job well done!
