Working with Annie was fun, easy and stress-free. She did a great job of nailing down a fresh new logo/mascot design for our event that was a big hit with our racers and our spectators.

It was a true joy working with Annie as she was able to enthusiastically take our ideas and concepts and elevate them beyond our wildest expectations. I had a clear vision of what I was looking for as far as our original "core" brand presentation and initial brand extensions and Annie was able to not only intuitively take those ideas and run with them, her ability to ask the right questions and help us dig deeper created a sleek, thoughtful vision in a uniform (yet exciting) colourspace that really made our products "pop" and stand out from our competition.

Director Of Connection & Engagement, Saunders Farm
Annie designed the logo and defined the brand identity for our new contracting business. She was engaged from the very beginning and laid out everything in a clear and accessible way. We went through multiple stages of collaboration to create a design that really worked for us. She was very responsive, easy to talk to and very professional. We really enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her!
Nicholas Mitchell
Owner, Plateau Electric Co
Annie is a brilliant designer whose work has elevated our brand and so many of our products. She created designs for a merch line for both our Cider company and our Farm. From the initial brief, to the concept phase, to the final design, she was timely, professional, fun, and always got to the heart of what we were seeking. The depth of her talent as an illustrator is mind-boggling — the only difficulty we ever had was choosing which concept to go with because they were all stellar.  5 Stars !

Annie only exceeds her talent with her work ethic. But most importantly, she's really fun to work with.

Annie built a website for my company and did an amazing job. The aesthetic is beautiful. She knew exactly what I was looking for just by answering a couple of questions. She is easy to talk to and makes herself available for us. I am looking forward to rebranding my company with her! She has proven countless times with my other company that her work is 100% worth it.

Annie is awesome in all that she takes on. We've had a chance to work together at a couple places and each time she has had solid ideas and professional follow-through. Her illustration skills along with her design treatments are top notch!

Our ciders are now as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside! The Farm and Cider branding is sleek and uniquely appealing bringing a whimsy, delight and authenticity we can all be proud of. Looking forward to working with her and seeing more inspiring collaborations in the future.

Annie is absolutely amazing! Her professionalism, kindness, positive energy and talent make her an absolute pleasure to work with and is why I will continue to work with her and her studio in the future.
Matt Smart
I have been working with Annie for a while and what sets her apart is her drive and passion. She certainly has the technical chops and knowledge, but that is only the start. I am very particular with who I work with and the quality they deliver. I never hesitate to reach out to Annie. I know that I will get quality work that I am proud to present to clients. She has proven to be not only a solid designer but also an excellent collaborator. The work is simply better when we collaborate. You will easily find someone who can execute but it is rare to find someone as well rounded as Annie.
Rob Smith
Creative Director + Owner, Think Smith & Greenmelon
Annie captures where we want to go, then lands us there in a single meeting. That is her gift.
Sean MacFarlane
Annie did a full rebrand and website for my company. My sales have gone up dramatically and I've received so many compliments on her work. She made sure it represented me and my brand - and she barely knew me. She knows exactly what she is doing and her work is of such good quality. She makes time for you, even when she is busy, she'll accommodate you and put you on her schedule as soon as possible. It is an absolute joy to work with her!

We were looking for a rebrand.  We wanted a fresh juicy look that spoke to a wider audience.  We are very happy to have worked with Annie.  She gave us many different avenues which we were able to work with and created with her a design that we are all very pleased with.
