Your brand is your promise to the world. No one understands that better than Mark Stern. His ability to take your ideas and transform them into a collection of logos, imagery and artwork will take your brand to another level. He is professional, efficient and a lot of fun to work with! I’ve hired him multiple times – from single projects to a full re-brand. Hiring Mark was one of the best decisions we could have made when it came to improving our marketing and design materials.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mark for the past three years. During this time, he has helped to develop our brand and identity and carry this forward in a multitude of projects. In addition to being a talented designer, he also brings solid writing and communications skills to the table. He embraces our work with conviction and passion. While Mark is a freelance, he acts as though is one of the team with a strong sense of ownership in all of the projects that he undertakes. I would highly recommend Mark.

Mark's talents range from his excellent custom line art of nearly anything including his outstanding character development, to branding and logo development and packaging layout. His excellence comes from his ability to listen and hear you to fully understand the project objectives make him a pleasure to work with. The project outcomes have always been excellent and his work ethic comes through with every job he tackles. I would recommend Mark for any graphic design project that needs the creative eye, the subtle touch of magic or the creative fortitude that is needed to push through the large and difficult jobs as well.
