Kelly has provided outstanding work for my business revamp.

Following my very basic ideas, she has created a fantastic new logo for DANDELIONZ. I am amazed at her ability to be so in tune with what I was seeking regarding an updated image.

Balaclava has provided a new logo and letter head design.
They have also completely updated my website (nearly ready!).

I highly recommend Balaclava Design. Their work is of the highest quality.
I felt very comfortable working with Kelly because she understood precisely the product, the market and the image I wanted(reusable cloth).

Kelley is fantastic, and an extremely talented digital artist!

I worked with her on the design of the logo for my new WAHM venture ChookMook and was blown away how effortlessly she was able to incoporate my ChookMook mascot...whose a super duper cute little birdie.

I highly recommend her.

I am a huge fan of Kelley's. I went to her recently to ask her about designing my new website and related advertising material. She was completely in tune with what I wanted, extremely fast and really friendly.

She designed all of this for me in a mad rush just before going to NZ for the wedding. Kelley spent every evening prior to her trip designing and emailing me with updates to her work. I am truly impressed with her professionalism and commitment to this project.

Thanks Kelley, you are fantastic :D :D .

(I'll post a message once Kelley's masterpiece is ready to view :wink: )

I'll have to jump in on this one too. Kelley has done a few little jobs for me and she is awesome. You hardly need to go over stuff with her - she just knows!!

Her work is very profesional and she is extremely quick, and reliable.

We love you Kelley! :smt050

Thanks so much Carla! Was this a way to lure me on to TNN?! I am supposed to be working 8-)

To be honest, I don't deserve a good review from you, based on the time it took me to turn it around!! :oops:

Unfortunately I won't be taking on any new clients now, until I finally get my new venture off the ground and can actually get some sleep. What was I thinking?!!!

Anyway I can recommend my friend Claire who does design (and also some amazing jewellery) - she won't be as cheap as me (I shouldn't be as cheap as me!!!) but said she can try lower her prices a bit for you guys.

www.atticacreative.com
www.meadowlark.co.nz

Otherwise - pixeldust is good, and also Shae's dp has a design business too.

Thanks so much though for all the fab reviews!!! :D :D :D

Hi all,

Just letting you know that (cough) due to the 'current economic crisis' (dh got made redundant) The Business Formally Known As Balaclava is currently open for business... Ben will be taking on some freelance work and we are willing to do some 'package deals' for a good price for TNNers (and friends). It will be mostly Ben as I am busy with Peppermint (but we work together on everything anyway) - his own website is now www.benmcgill.net

Probably best to email us - at ben@benmcgill.net

Thanks!!!

Kelley
