Kyle has been great so far. We had a few back and forths with design, but he was patient and open, producing great final products. In addition, he found a clever way to incorporate the lines of our logo subtly into all of the collateral, elevating our branding and cohesiveness.

About

Cece created my business logo along with business cards and guided me through the process of setting up a business website. Her responsiveness to my questions and concerns were prompt, accurate and she always went way out of her way to support my efforts in establishing my own business and branding and listening to my visions and ideas. Cece was well versed, communicative and creative in all aspects of how to best enhance the design while keeping the costs on target. Her professionalism and inspirations are excellent and it was a true delight to work alongside of her to strategically create the branding of my business. My business cards are always complimented on by clients and peers alike and I would highly recommend Cece to clients as well as using her services for my own future business needs.

We hired Annie to serve as a Graphic Illustrator at an event and create story boards from her drawings and the notes. She was responsive, timely, and very reasonably priced. It has been a joy working with her and we are very pleased with the final product that we will share with the meeting participants.

I needed to have a logo recreated from an old sweatshirt so it could be printed on new shirts. I sent Jason a picture of the sweatshirt and he took it from there. The project ended up growing somewhat and I asked him to create three versions of the logo, all of which came out great. Jason was extremely easy to work with. He was very responsive in all of our back&forth discussions, and kept me informed of his progress, checking in frequently and making sure all my requirements were being met. The end products were exactly what I was looking for and I am very pleased with the entire transaction.

I can't say enough about Tim! We had him design our save the dates. It wasn't your typical Save the date request and throughout the whole process Tim was more than accommodating. I can only imagine the extra hours he put into everything, and i was still charged the original price he quoted me. An excellent business man. There was constant contact between us and he was always willing to go the extra mile with my random requests and changes. I would HIGHLY recommend him to everyone. If you are looking for top quality work, quick responses, everything done in a timely matter, and an excellent personality to work with - Tim is your guy!

Suzanne painted a rocking chair for me, I told her my idea for it and it turned out even better than I could have imagined! She kept in contact with me to let me know how the progress and even came to pick the chair up and dropped it off again when it was complete! The chair is absolutely beautiful!

I had Caroline do an ink picture of our home for a gift for my husband. She worked from photos and absolutely nailed the house in all the details we wanted. It was a perfect illustration and her way of coordinating with me was easy and built my confidence. HIGHLY recommend is not enough praise for Caroline.

Working with 3 Monkeys & Aardvark Studios has exceeded our expectations. When we are creating collateral materials for events, eye-popping design is imperative in getting an invitation opened and read by our potential guests. Ben does a wonderful job making our vision come alive in design. He translates the look and feel of the event into the design and takes us seamlessly through the entire process from concept, to truly creative design, to paper choice and printing. He does all of this with a great can-do attitude and in step with our tight timelines. I would highly recommend 3 Monkeys & Aardvark Studios for anyone who is looking to stand out in an over-saturated mail/print market.
