“Transforming vision and concepts into a full corporate identity package takes creativity, passion and a high standard of organization and efficiency. Branding a company image through the design of a logo, website, business cards, brochures, stationery and marketing tools takes brilliance and it is amazing all the terrific characteristics required for impressive design and development found their way into one graphic designer, Steve Zelle.

“Creating an identity was something I knew was vital for success on my own as a designer. Like most designers, personal and client commitments were always higher on the to-do list. Steve gave me a perfect balance of creative freedom and influence along the entire project. His calm, organized process made the project feel effortless and quite fun, I was always excited to see what he came up with next. Most importantly, I know there was a solid thought process behind every decision.”

“As a company whose focus is bilateral trade and services between North American and India, we had a requirement for a visual identity that worked across cultures and was sensitive to different needs. Steve captured the idea of accelerated growth and global connections in an identity that was and continues to be relevant to our markets in North America and India. His process caused us to hone our own strategy and develop the identity that we were looking for. The service he provides is exceptional and he has always made himself available — during the process and after. I have had no hesitation in recommending him in the past and continue to do so.”

“The assumption that artists can easily establish their own brand is inaccurate. The reality is that as a fine artist, my focus is on my work and branding requires a distinctly different skills-set. I wanted a mark, something that was representative of who I am as well as reflecting my style. Working with Steve was a wonderful experience. His professional approach was refreshing. Steve’s deep passion for his work and love for identities provided invaluable perspective throughout the process. He brings an enthusiasm through a process that make you acutely aware that you are defining your brand at the ground level. The end-product exceeded my expectations, it is exactly, well . . . me!”

Throughout the process, he was consistently professional, creative and above all, helpful as this was a new experience for us coming into it with a logo that was 40 years old. Steve sincerely cared about what he was doing for us on a personal level and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
