What People Are Saying About My Design Work
“Thanks again SO much for all the incredibly complicated work you did on my print materials, labels, and online store: what a gift to just be able to say “GO” and have you do everything so seamlessly. It’s really wonderful having you on my team, as someone who combines your intricate knowledge of the field with the understanding and knowledge of how my business works. I value it so much!”
I have had the pleasure of working with Margaret & Emily on a number of projects and would highly recommend their services without hesitation. Never have I received more positive feedback on an event promotion then when I used their designs. I also love that I can always trust that the writing pieces will convey my message with appropriate tone for the audience. I appreciate most their responsiveness, punctuality and attention to specific detail; they make sure to thoroughly understand the nuances of a project prior to launching, which always saves time & most importantly, budget.
What an asset to the farm community and business community! I have worked with Emily Longbrake and Margaret Adsit on a few occasions working on logos and building my website. Communication being key to the success of both logo and website design, these ladies are able to take ideas and put them into media forms that are both artistic and professional, but also tell the story behind each product and service. I found working with them to be smooth and complete. These gals are thorough, reasonably priced, and care about what they are doing and how it will grow the businesses they are working with. They take the time to listen to their clients and make sure that they are happy with the final results. My website is both beautiful and functional. We have found a steady increase in direct sales since having this site completed. And the logos are creative and really updated original designs without losing historical reference.

The hardest part of making art, to me, is answering the question why. Why make it? Why show it at a particular place and time? Why is my voice important? Why did I choose the technique, the colors, the medium, or the inspiration that I did? Why is my work better,...
