what people say

Bonnie Packo

Owner

Packo Private Wealth Management

Our new brand elevates the presentation of our practice to our clients and distinguishes us from other financial companies. It efficiently brings together form and function in a fresh, professional way. It incorporates the visual elements that are important to us and more clearly demonstrates the services we provide. Shew Design really listened carefully to us and went the extra mile. They exceeded our expectations.

John Jenkins

President

Spark Museum of Radio and Electricity

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!

Sarah Sumadi

Senior Program Manager

One America

We were really happy with Shew Design. They listened to us, incorporated our feedback and ideas, and delivered a website that we love. I recommend them to anyone looking for help with building a website.

James Lovell

Director of Development and Advancement

Neighborhood House

I worked with Shew Design on a fast-moving project with a lot of externally-mandated parameters, and Shew Design was wonderful! Our $24 million/year multi-service nonprofit has a lot of considerations and voices to factor into all web design projects, and Becca and Eric listened and responded well. They kept our users at the center of the conversation and provided excellent customer service as they implemented a production plan that followed an aggressive timeline. The website they designed & produced is better for our clients, staff, and communities than we had envisioned, and can easily be edited and expanded to continue to meet the needs of an ever-changing social services landscape.

Rebecca Johnson

Development Director

Interfaith Community Health Center

Our new logo and the quality of the materials they’ve created have truly inspired our staff and board. 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.

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.

Shew Design consistently produces great communications tools for our national advocacy efforts. They encouraged us to invite a diverse group of stakeholders to be part of an advisory group for each project. After listening to multiple voices, they made recommendations, including creative strategies we had not considered. Communicators across the country love the assets they have created. We will definitely continue to work with Shew Design!

Paul Hemminger

Owner

Bellingham Frameworks

I have worked with Shew Design a couple of times, most recently for a new logo and rebranding for Bellingham Frameworks. I came to them with the most vague idea of what I wanted and had a hard time articulating it. Within minutes they had on screen what was in my head. They do get it. The whole process was also super efficient and clear.

Jonathan Lee

Storytelling and Digital Engagement Manager

There are many stakeholders engaged in this project and they are able to wrap their arms around all the insights and ideas. I’m so grateful for their expertise, attention to detail, project design, and their overall approach to working with our diverse group!

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.

Throughout the entire process of retooling our market image, the Shew Design crew was able to deliver tasks on schedule while maintaining amazing attention to detail at all levels of the project.

David Stalheim

Consultant

Mud Bay Consulting

When working with Shew Design, I’m reminded of the Calvin and Hobbs “bats are bugs” report. A crisp presentation was meant to overcome the report shortcomings. Shew Design consistently produces crisp graphics, concise text and stunning reports. I’m not sure they would put their name on a “bats are bugs” report, but if they did, someone might just believe it because their work is outstanding.

Sayyora Polat

Communications Manager

We loved working with Shew Design on our nonprofit organization’s WordPress website redesign project in 2020! Eric and Becca were very responsive to our complex needs and flexible with all the challenges that came our way. They continue to provide technical web support for the website. Highly recommend this local Washingtonian team!

Marlene Finley

Board Member

Evergreen Islands

The process of designing the website was very well communicated and smoothly delivered. Their tutorials were excellent and the written instructions provided are clear and extremely helpful as we update content. Since our organization launched the new website I have heard people call it “exciting”, “informative” and “fresh look”. Within two weeks, people outside our organization were referencing the website on social media.

Kat DeVaney

Shew Design updated our brand’s look and feel, and helped us organize a lot of content into a new website. The result is a website that beautifully expresses who we are, is easy for customers to navigate, and is easy for us to maintain. 

Susan Marks

Executive Director

Bellingham/Whatcom County Commission Against Domestic Violence

Working with Shew Design 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.

It is a fresh look that perfectly pairs with our new menu. They are wonderful designers and extremely responsive to our numerous and unique requests, which included a new look for our school menu, an introductory video, buttons, stickers, aprons and even vehicle graphics.
