Skip is not only very talented but extremely patient, walking us through the process we knew nothing about, of an animated video he us creating for our new business venture. We have a rather tight deadline for the video to present to some investors and he's been on top of it from the outset. We appreciated his dedication and are thrilled with what he has accomplished thus far.

I hired Brandin to create a mural for my niece's room - I wanted something whimsical and set in a forest. She did an excellent job populating the room with adorable and quirky little forest creatures and trees with leaves drifting in the wind. My niece absolutely loves it, every day she wakes up and greets every animal by name!

Mike was super helpful with direction, patient, and extremely skilled for a great price. We only communicated over thumbtack and email and he was still able to create exactly what I was looking for. Mike is extremely talented at providing direction and creative input to someone like me, who has zero experience in animation. 5 stars for sure. I will definitely be using his services again!

I have worked with Patrick for over 8 years, for clients including Scholastic and Highlights for Children. He is an especially versatile illustrator whose clever depictions of kids and animals are always spot on for the assignment (often very tricky assignments, as with Hidden Pictures scenes) and usually add thoughtful and humorous touches to our original briefs. Some of his individual illustrations (my favorites include his anthropomorphized insects and fish) have inspired us to create actual series based on the characters, such as the Antics series of inside-back-cover puzzles for Highlights Let's Play Hidden Pictures. Always on time (and timeless — the Scholastic skills book series for which Patrick illustrated the whimsical covers in 2007 are still top sellers at B&N.) Always in the format I need — and always willing to make last minute adjustments or send me versions or elements when needed. Patrick is one of my favorite "go to" illustrators for a variety of clients and types of projects. Sharon Streger Sequel Creative http://www.sequelcreative.com/

Jason created an infographic to illustrate the process of our rather complex finance concept. Our initial meeting was in-person, and we corresponded via email for the rest of the project. He was timely, consciences of our budget and produced an immaculate final product.

Working with Mark Huelskamp and IPowerChicago.com has been one of the most positive professional experiences I’ve ever had. Mark made our project a top priority and returned every call and email promptly. He is extremely talented and knowledgeable about every aspect of website design and development and his level of professionalism is rare in any field. He went above and beyond our original agreement to make sure every detail was accomplished. Our project was very complex and challenging, yet he completed his work prior to our expectations. . Mark presented creative ideas and solutions resulting in total satisfaction. Our websites are organized, consistent and match our business materials perfectly! Not only that, but after just a few weeks, our sites already show up on the first page of a Google search! Thank you! We couldn’t have chosen a better website company.
