Stephen Lister, Owner and President, Synapspark Consulting

Kristen provided very creative ideas for my new business logo as well as my business cards. She was very patient, and allowed me many opportunities to ask questions and work with her to choose colors and design concepts. She also provided valuable information about the printing company she had success with, and I was very pleased with the results. I would recommend Kristen for any of your graphic design needs, she is very professional and accommodating!

Mark Caravaggio (DJ Charlie Clean)

Red Pencil Design (Kristen Clancy) was my fabulous graphic designer that put djcharlieclean.ca together, as well as designing both my amazing new logo and funky business cards. Using her extraordinary experience, clever sense of humour with custom taglines, as well as very creative ideas looking outside the box, Kristen helped me achieve what I've always wanted, and that is a funky & fun, yet professional website that caters to anyone looking for DJ services. Thank you so much for everything Kristen; it was wonderful working with you on this project and I'll be sure to spread the word of Red Pencil Design everywhere I go!
