Shew Design helped clarify our organization’s message and materials through brilliant design and a thorough approach to content. The result is a far more compelling message and professional image that better reflects the work we do and why it’s important—given the complexity of our organization, this was no small feat!

From the first meeting to the final results the collaborative process was professional and efficient. Shew Design challenged our creative ways of thinking while balancing everything we asked for to create an amazing finished website and design beyond our expectations.
Shew Design’s method of diving into every aspect of our business enabled them to understand what our clients are looking for, and was vital in the development process. The final results were spot on.

Shew Design is a great team that create dynamic branding material. The process in creating our updated logo consistently had the goal of being as collaborative and as efficient as possible – which I greatly appreciated. Even after the delivery of the final logo, they have been tremendous assets for additional questions and assistance. In short, they’re rock stars!

Shew Design put together a whole team to work with us on re-branding. The research and subsequent tagline really nailed what we were looking for. Our new logo and the quality of the materials they’ve created have truly inspired our staff and board. I am so proud of the work we do here at Interfaith Community Health Center, and the materials they created are a fabulous presentation of our service to the community. Our marketing efforts have reached a whole new level of professionalism.
Interfaith Community Health Center
We are very pleased with our new brand and website. It looks great, as does the matching marketing material. Shew Design helped us get comfortable with wording that would resonate with more people and work on our website, while also respecting the fact that regulations often dictate what we can or cannot say. But they did it, and. we’re very happy with our new look.
Waycross Investment Management Company
Shew Design helped us develop an updated look for our popular Tech Stomp fundraiser for scholarships held annually as a summer social. The updated brand identity proved to be very effective in communicating to a broad audience of technology developers, business professionals, and community partners. The beautifully-designed marketing pieces and event signage helped drive event attendance and contributed to making this our most successful scholarship fundraiser since the event’s inception 11 years ago.
The Shew team’s enthusiasm and professional execution make the process of working with them very enjoyable. I am happy to recommend Shew Design to anybody looking for creative designs and marketing services.

I had a fantastic experience working with Shew Design on the graphic design for the RE Sources ‘be cool’ campaign. They not only developed an outstanding product for us, but were excellent collaborators and made the RE Sources staff feel like an integral part of the design team. Their work is truly unique and their manner is truly professional.
RE Sources for Sustainable Communities
Shew Design took the time to patiently explore our business concept and then brought it to life before our eyes! They created a showcase of exquisite pieces that work together to convey our messaging loud and clear. Our brand colors are dynamic and interesting, and the creative use of words, numbers, and shapes play off each other in a very interactive way. Our logo is a thing of beauty, and we get compliments on it constantly.
I’ve worked with Shew Design on a diverse set of assignments and on multiple occasions. They have never failed to deliver a fantastic product on time and on budget, and they’ve been a pleasure to work with along the way. They are always my first call when I need design work done. I highly recommend them.

Shew Design has been a great help to Interfaith Community Health Center in developing a clear, consistent way of presenting itself to our community. They provide value in developing strategies for outreach and marketing.
Interfaith Community Health Center
A new website is a daunting endeavor, but with the carefully crafted, intelligent creativity I have experienced at Shew Design, this process has been invigorating and at the same time affordable. Talk about real value! I have loved this connection with smart people.
We were looking for a logo that reflected our new brand: bold and modern while still anachronistic. Not everyone “gets” it, but Shew Design understood and produced a stunning design. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result, so we asked Shew Design to design a full corporate identity package for us: name tags, business cards, envelope design, letterhead, and a newsletter template. Again, an incredible job. I think the result speaks for itself!

I appreciate their insight into the process and how that process includes both design and production. They’ve saved us money, streamlined our work, and have had a huge impact in our ability to reach out to our community.
Director of External Affairs
Working with Shew Design, I’ve learned two things: 1. They truly produce ‘strategic visual communications’ and 2. They do their research and are excellent collaborators.

How do you market an event when you can’t use the name in the title? That’s what the Pickford Film Center had to work out when we learned we couldn’t use the word “Oscars” to describe the black tie party where we live stream the Academy Awards. Shew Design wasted no time in developing a clever, creative, yet unmistakably Oscars poster while staying within the restrictions of the Academy. Everyone got it and loved it. The Shews nailed it.
Pickford Film Center
Shew Design is a key partner and contributor in our campaign. Their insight, nimbleness, humor, and effective messaging and design have significantly helped our efforts in elevating our campaign to stop coal exports off the West Coast. Shew Design cares about their clients and takes care of their needs from soup to nuts.

When I ran for office this past year, I was looking for a new perspective in colors, design, and messaging. Working with Eric and Becca was a real treat. They helped to move me out of my comfort box and open up to a more modern creative look in design of my materials. I loved it. Thank you Eric and Becca for listening to my ideas and views and transforming them into a visually-strong and cohesive campaign package.
Bellingham City Council Member
I have regularly worked with Shew Design since first being referred to them in 2003. I have hired them to do brand development work for me at three separate companies, have referred numerous colleagues to them, and have even worked with them as a consultant on marketing strategy and content development.
I believe in the incredible insight they bring to a business, because they don’t just see marketing as a stand-alone activity that is a nice-to-have for a business. They see marketing as an integral part of successful internal and external communications. They recognize that in order to succeed as a business, a company has to passionately believe in the brand and feel proud of it in order for clients to feel that level of connection and belief in the product/service.
If you want to see your organization move to the next level, working with Shew Design is a smart business investment. You’ll not only receive amazing visuals from the deep creativity they bring, but you’ll also gain a new awareness about your organizational purpose and how to communicate it effectively to all of your stakeholders.

Working with Becca and Eric Shew to develop a new website and branding for Bellingham/Whatcom County Commission Against Domestic Violence, along with social media tools such as blogs and Facebook, has been a wonderful experience. They were very thoughtful about the needs of our organization and about the issue of domestic violence in our community, conducting their own research and obtaining a high level of input from our staff. They then provided us with tools and guidelines for using those tools in a way that will allow us to continually promote our mission in the community.
Bellingham/Whatcom County Commission Against Domestic Violence
My only concern about Shew Design is their name, since they do so much more than design, and do it well. Working from the communications, imaging, and identity frames (and, yes, with an exquisite sense of design and proportion) they have helped us build and brand meaningful campaigns. Re-usable elements have proved critical, and Shew will continue to be part of our campaign plans for the future.

Our new brand elevates the presentation of our practice to our clients and distinguishes us from other financial companies.

Their portfolio shows Shew Design can create images that are hip, elegant, and compelling– all at the same time. But really, it’s the customer service that sets them apart. From concept to final product, Shew Design not only translated our vision into an integrated “brand,” but they also were flexible, professional, and fun.

Shew Design did the branding packages for Otion – The Soap Bar and Bramble Berry Inc. They worked closely with us to determine the general feeling that we wanted each brand to convey, spending much time focusing on the customer demographics and business model. Eric and Becca are very passionate about both brands, often coming up with innovative marketing strategies and alternative ways to use the brands within our budgets. In addition to our branding packages, Shew Design has done extensive additional work with both brands from designing wrapping paper, to DVD covers, to advertising to letterpress bookmarks. I would not hesitate to recommend Eric and Becca Shew for all of your design needs.

We came to Shew Design looking for a really bold design for our annual Peace Event. They asked all of the right questions at the start to set the tone for our messaging. The resulting design was inspiring and people collected the posters, button, and postcards as keepsakes. We can’t wait for this year’s event.

Working with Eric and Becca at Shew Design was an amazing experience.

The insight, creativity, and depth of knowledge about branding and marketing that Shew Design provided to Chuckanut Builders was amazing and beyond our initial expectations. The entire process was highly-collaborative and educational. We left armed with a better understanding of our own business and processes as well as tools to improve customer communications. We cannot thank Shew Design enough for the tools they built for us!
