Reviews and a Bit of Flattery
Here’s what others say about working with Kandra.
As the Marketing Coordinator for our firm I have worked on several projects with Phases Design Studio, and every time they’ve assisted me by coming up with creative solutions to my marketing challenges. They’re a lot of fun to work with, but still take their jobs very seriously! I am thankful to have them as part of our team.
Over the last few years, Phases has earned a spot as our go-to firm for branding and graphic design. Their design work has proven to be functional, as well as attractive. Kandra and her team approach every job with a dedication to creativity, attention to detail, and customer service that really stands out in their industry. We love their work.
Phases was the perfect marketing partner for my firm. They really took the time up front to get to know me and my goals, which helped them to more easily communicate my strengths to clients and prospects. The final products were great, and the entire process was really collaborative and creative.
Phases Design Studios brought teams of specialists to the table to help complete an overhaul of our company’s marketing, branding, messaging and web site, which had become obsolete over time. Through a well-thought interview process and collaborative meetings, they were able design and develop a new logo and web site that placed our company in a new league.
I had spent years struggling with different designers trying to create a company logo, but no one was able to create the visuals I saw in my head. Phases accomplished this nearly impossible task perfectly by presenting our very technical operation in a way that reflects our customer-focused company policies and friendly, Denver-based atmosphere.
After we started implementing our new brand we also started receiving positive compliments from our customers! One customer told me over the phone that she loved our logo as well as the new slogan, which she stated described us perfectly. Another customer called it a “great logo; scientific but not pretentious.” We also received compliments from customers who I would never even expect would notice!
The feedback from our clients and the confidence we have in our new brand makes all the hard work worth it!
I absolutely love our new logo and thank Phases for all of their hard work.
Five years ago we began working with Phases Design Studio when we were looking to redesign our website and give our marketing materials a fresh new look. Beginning with a creative brief, Kandra did a great job helping us to refine our look to fit our brand image. Not only does she have a great eye for color, images and design, but she is knowledgeable about SEO, website design and social media. She has consistently delivered timely and professional designs for all of our marketing and communication needs… website, facebook, print and digital advertising, letterhead, business cards and new patient materials. She is a pleasure to work with and an important business partner!
I can’t tell you how fortunate I am to have Phases working with me on my brand. First, they came up with a unique and original name that fits my business to a “T”. Now, I’m constantly receiving compliments, and people commenting that they remember me because of my brand colors!
Phases has been so supportive throughout the entire implementation process, too. I can’t believe how many wonderful and effective ideas they have had for promoting my brand – everything from amazing and shareable infographics and informative blog posts to ways to reach new audiences that I would have never thought of on my own.
I look forward to continuing both the relationship and the success my business has received from their work!
Working with Kandra and Phases Design Studio was an absolute pleasure. Kandra helped us identify our needs and educated us on our options. She assembled a talented group of programmers, designers, search engine optimizers, etc. and gave us a website that exceeded our expectations. Now that the site is launched, Kandra continues to address our questions and helps us with strategy to build on what we have. Working with Kandra allows us to have a first-class site that allows for functionality and ease of use for us and our visitors.
It is always a pleasure to work with Kandra Churchwell at Phases Design Studio! She is responsive, works diligently to make sure we’re happy with every aspect of her work and she lets us know in advance how much each project will cost so there are no unpleasant surprises at the end.
