Reviews and a Bit of Flattery
Here’s what others say about working with Kandra.
Once again, thank you for all your hard work on this project. It obviously means a lot to Mike and me, but your complete dedication was not only very impressive but pretty unbelievable. Mike and I have worked in high-end retail and legal industries for many years and we have never been fortunate enough to work with such a great team of very talented individuals. We are very lucky to have met you.

Phases did a great job walking us through the branding process and explaining the why and how behind every decision. Our new brand is about more than just visuals; it’s about how everything, from our name to our internal company culture, works together. Since we implemented the changes, our services have more continuity, and our team has more confidence as a whole.
We have worked with Phases on many projects, and each time we learn to value their services more and more.
From last-minute designs on a tight deadline to thoughtful and well-implemented campaigns, like the Rapids season sponsorship materials, they always come through.
It’s been a pleasure working with Kandra and her team through the years and we look forward to many more.
Phases Design Studio branded and set up a website for our non-profit organization. They helped develop our tagline and logo, and handled all the design, coding and setup work for the site.
Kandra and her team were creative, competent, and responsive; they turned our high-priority job around extremely quickly, but without sacrificing the creativity and quality of the work. We love Phases Design Studio.
Kandra is easy to work with, creative, and very professional. They are thoughtful and very thorough when approaching a project, which always leads to greater customer satisfaction and improved results. We are thankful to have met the team at Phases and look forward to continuing to work with them.
Kandra always went the extra mile to make sure our team was happy and taken care of. We’re really happy with the final designs, and the branding process gave us some valuable insights into how we should communicate the strengths of our business to the public. We love our new brand!
One of the reasons Phases Design Studio is so great to work with is that Kandra is able to step in and seamlessly integrate with our internal marketing staff. We’ve used them for our print pieces for years and Kandra’s print background combined with the creative content her team develops make for consistently interesting and effective work.”
Kandra is knowledgeable and creative. We move fast and we really appreciate everything Kandra brings to our team. She meets our design needs across all mediums with efficient, quality work.
They helped bring my needs and wishes to an organized and easily navigated presence on the web. The process was extremely easy and was a learning experience for me as well. I learned more about the importance of branding my company, having a corporate vision and how that will help me grow my company. I have always thought these were lessons for larger, chain companies but Phases helped me see the importance of it, even for small businesses. Thank you so much!
