"Richard understands the client's business and its need for graphic design work by listening to his client and then designing work that is of high quality and creativity. He consistently delivers on his commitments and brings a unique sense of creativity to his work.

"My agency hired Richard to help us come up with new imaging and a new logo. My partners and I consider the work he did for us critical to the success we had in the years after we implemented his suggestions. Richard is a truly creative ad man. He listened to us, worked with us to give us what we wanted, and then surprised us by going above and beyond our expectations. He's not satisfied merely meeting expectations, he is interested in achieving success for his clients. That's a rare trait. And to find that in a designer as talented as Richard is like getting your cake and eating it too."
