Darnall & Associates
About this pro
I cannot say enough about our experience with Darnall & Associates. We came to them with little to no creative vision yet requested logo design, letterhead, envelope design, auto graphics and wearables. Not only did John and his team come through with outstanding preliminary options; they delivered the most outstanding logo and design work we had ever seen. Now 11 years into building the business and the logo still receives compliments from clients and associates on a very regular basis. I was and continue to be impressed with the skill of the design team, the process and the follow through. I truly cannot recommend Darnall & Associates highly enough. With their professionalism, vision and guidance they helped to build a foundation on which we have grown our business exponentially, year after year.Jan 12, 2016
John has helped me with several projects over the years. He is always very professional, thoughtful and offers in-depth concepts to meet our needs. In each case John came up with creative ideas and was able to easily take concept to the medium we employed while using his unique eye for color and images in his work. I would recommend D&A for any marketing need, graphic project or for consultation.Sep 18, 2015
John Darnall of Darnall & Associates has provided outstanding work even without a lot of lead in time. His ads have had great eye appeal and more importantly they have worked.Sep 15, 2015
John is a true professional. Not only are his designs timeless and carefully crafted, but they are also always delivered on time, even when our deadlines are exacting. We have worked with him for years without any issues, and our clients (podcasters) are invariably pleased by his designs. We get our money's worthand then somewith each new project.Sep 15, 2015
