I was in search of a Graphic Motion Artist to design logo animation for a music video. Jeff was referred to me from a film company I often work with and I am very pleased with the results he produced. He is quick to respond, keeps the content confidential and takes direction well. He also has a strong discerning eye for detail. I highly recommend Soko Design to others.

I found Mr. Labra online quite a few years ago while searching for someone to build a bookcase / wall unit. I reviewed his website and was extremely impressed with the creativity of his designs. Back then, I was just in the idea stage and Mr. Labra was very helpful (even though some of my ideas were out there) and not pushy at all. Due to my inability to decide on what I really wanted, I essentially ignored the project for quite some time. Cut to a few years down the road, I finally made up my mind. I emailed Mr. Labra once again. Right off the bat, he was a consummate professional. He quickly gave me an estimate for my "plans" which was on par with other contractors. What set him apart from the other guys was how he made me a part of the process. Other contractors I contacted listened to my plans and gave me a quote. He worked with me every step of the way (i.e. he listed the different types of wood that he could use, the pros and cons of each and why he felt one was the best fit for me) to give me the best outcome. He also voiced his own opinion when he felt it was warranted. When some of my ideas went against what he felt create a quality product, he let me know how he could tweak things to get it back on track. But, at the same time, he let me know that it was my decision and didn't force me to follow his path. It did take a while for it to get done. But, once the bookshelf was completed, it was impeccable. You can see the pride he takes in his craftsmanship (while installing the piece, he spent ten minutes fidgeting with a door to make sure it was not a millimeter out of place). There are so many little details I could go into that I've noticed on the unit that make it stand out. Needless to say, I am beyond impressed with Mr. Labra's skills (both in design and build) and character. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

David Goodwin has been employed with my company Gunwerks for nearly two years. Our company is unique in the manner in which we have vertically integrated our marketing efforts with a manufacturing company that builds products using our very specific, very advanced technology. A defining characteristic of our marketing efforts surrounds the conveyance of complex information in easy to digest segments of video that we broadcast on our nationally televised program. Dave’s artistic talent has combined very well with his ability to understand these complex topics. The segments he has created have served our customer, and therefore, our company, very well. Dave has scripted segments, shot video, edited segments, and created all the graphics and 3D elements to complete a video project. In addition to video and very detailed 3D models, he was also tasked with production work for our print and website advertising campaigns. I believe Dave to be very capable and versatile. He seems very interested in creating artistic elements, and responds very well to challenging projects that enhance his experience and expertise. He has been an excellent team member and very pleasant to work with. In our organization, his ability to lead and complete a project without significant oversight was as much an asset as his ability to work with many different people with varied backgrounds in engineering, sales, marketing and even accounting, along with other talented professionals working with video and print media. I can offer a strong recommendation for Dave’s participation in your Creative Ventures program. He is uniquely suited to thrive in an environment structured as your program. He will contribute a balance of professional capability and youthful verve.

I worked with Pete for many years while at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit, MI. He has an exceptional eye for detail and always exceeded our expectations. Pete documented our educational experiences through photographs and film. While much of his work was used for promotional purposes, he also produced educational products that were used in our theaters and YouTube channel. I would recommend his services to anyone!
