Joel arrived on time and new what he was doing. He fixed all the problems I was having with the computer and printer. He is very easy to work with and does a good job explaining as he goes along. I would certainly hire him again if the occasion arose. CharlesJul 22, 2017Verified
SillyCar Design was a wonderful company to work with for our logo creation. They designed a beautiful logo for our law firm for an extremely competitive price. Best part was the direct contact with owner/designer. His designs were great and the customer service was top notch. We look forward to working with SillyCar Design again in the future and highly recommend!Dec 19, 2016Verified

We are thrilled with the beautiful new look Joel created for Sokolowski’s Greenhouses! He began with a new logo, then moved on to create a new website, and even designed and installed a new roadside sign. Joel was very easy to work with. We gave him our business information and he did the rest. He was also very patient with us as we requested changes, especially with all the plant photos. Joel’s creativity and expertise in web design was exactly what we needed to create our beautiful new look!Mar 8, 2019SillyCar Design's reply
Thank you Carolyn! It has been a pleasure working with such great people at a great local business!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am constantly training through online courses to keep myself sharp and able to adapt to the ever changing internet and its standards. I love to learn new things and apply them to my work!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After studying Computer Science in college, I realized that I could not be a programmer for a living. There is a lot of creativity to be expressed in programming, but it is very frustrating. I purchased a Macintosh computer when I was a junior in college and just really enjoyed creating things graphically with it. By the time I was finished with my Computer Science degree, I knew what I wanted to do. The programming background combined with my now many years of experience working in commercial printing has also given me an edge over other designers because I understand the technical ins and outs of the hardware, operating systems and software that are essential tools of this trade.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?You have tons of choices when hiring a graphic designer. There are so many of them out there. Many are very good designers and some are good at many things. I am good at many things and can provide a lot more services than most graphic designers (I can provide web and print design, print brokering with great pricing because of my connections with printers, custom print items like outdoor signage, floor graphics, magnets, stickers, custom labels etc., every door direct mailing services, and more). A one stop shop could be better for many people and that is something to consider when hiring a provider like me. My advice is to look at the designers portfolio, then if you like their work, check their reviews and contact some of their past clients to see what they have to say about how they are to work with and go from there.
