        Testimonials

        • Forwords Communication

          Brandon Brind is a communicator, first and foremost, whose chosen form of expression is creative design. I have worked in partnership with Brandon for almost a decade in his capacity as creative director and designer, on a wide range of client projects. He never fails to listen, and to respond, in ways that are thoughtful, strategic and timely. In addition, his creativity has won the praise of clients, and the recognition of his peers for the way in which his visual communication supports business success.

          I have been honoured to work on a number of award-winning projects with Brandon, and he has become an indispensable and steadfast member of my team. I just couldn’t do what I do – and wouldn’t enjoy it as much! – without Brandon Brind by my side.

          Jennifer Wah, ABC, MC Principal Consultant

        • City of Coquitlam

          Working with ImageStudio is always a pleasure, and the work Brandon did for us at the City of Coquitlam consistently demonstrated his professionalism and exceptional understanding of strategic graphic design. He enabled us to produce materials that engaged our audiences and delivered our message both visually and through the content itself.

          Brandon’s ability to grasp the objectives of the communications and develop creative solutions is an enviable skill, and one that we benefitted from with each new project. It is no surprise to me that Brandon has been recognized with multiple awards of excellence for his work, and I highly recommend him as an exemplary graphic design professional.

          Therese Mickelson, ABC, Manager, Corporate Communications

        • Emily Carr University of Art + Design

          Leanne has more than delivered on multiple high-profile projects for the University. Ours were complex, integrated marketing strategies including development of: websites; crowd-funding; video and social media strategy; highly confidential/timed releases of information; on-site kiosk integration; web advertising and more.

          Without Leanne’s expertise, responsiveness and project management skills, (not to mention beautiful design), we simply wouldn’t have succeeded.

          Karin Watson, Media Relations, Communications Department

        • Royal Ontario Museum

          I first worked with Brandon and Deana when I hired ImageStudio to help design and fabricate the Royal Ontario Museum’s orientation system. We quickly established an excellent working partnership and I worked with them for many years, producing banners and signage, for both interior and exterior usage, most of which had to be bilingual entailing a great deal of patience, lots of proofing and tight deadlines. ImageStudio never failed me even under enormous pressure and the design services they provided were of exceptional quality. Together we created a product that, if you were to go to the Royal Ontario Museum today, would still be currently in use.

          Jill Dyer

        • Insurance Corporation of British Columbia

          I have had the pleasure of working with Brandon for many years on a number of key communications projects. He brings the unique ability to help translate complex editorial content into accessible and graphically appealing concepts that entice and excite readers. He supports and helps drive creative beyond traditional boundaries, and he always delivers support and service with a commitment to help achieve required outcomes. As a busy communicator who seeks collaborative partnerships with the suppliers I engage, I truly appreciate and value Brandon’s passion for service, his unwavering commitment to excellence, and above all, his desire to effectively satisfy his client’s needs.

          Manager, Employee Communications & Change Management

        • British Columbia Automobile Association

          Brandon delivers the whole package—creative design solutions completed on time and within budget. He’s takes the time to understand his customer’s needs and is personable and professional. It’s a pleasure to recommend his services, but, truth be told, I’d rather keep him all to myself!

          Heather Prime, ABC, Communications Manager

        • Tekara Organizational Effectiveness

          I hired Brandon to create a graphic identity and elements for a special corporate program. He had to work within some defined parameters, including a strong brand, but despite what appeared to be limitations, he was able to create an “outside the box” design that met our needs. I appreciate that Brandon approaches an assignment like this with an open mind, and spends the time to understand the client’s business and goals, before jumping to design solutions. The result was a win-win all ’round: great design that complemented the corporate brand.

          Tracey Wimperly, ABC, Associate

        • Vancity

          I worked with Brandon at Fraser Health when he designed a patient information brochure. Despite a client who had many changes and a lot of content to work with, Brandon delivered a beautiful and functional brochure on time and on budget. Brandon is personable and a good listener. I highly recommend him.

          Rosetta Cannata, ABC, Communications Manager

        • International Association of Business Communicators

          Brandon Brind volunteered his time to design a stunning IABC Gold Quill Awards brochure. He carefully listened to our vision and took charge of the project to turn it into a reality. He respected our budget, was a team player and was able to meet our deadlines even when we had very last minute changes. Brandon really helped us achieve our goals, was a key player in contributing to the overall success of our project and exceeded our expectations with the final design.

          Angela Green, CMP, Director, Business Development

        • Cunningham Lindsey

          I’ve had the pleasure of working with ImageStudio for over 10 years. During that time Brandon and Deana made a committed effort to understanding our business and our customers, and to assisting us in developing quality marketing collateral that reaches our target markets and accurately reflects our brand messaging. Their creative guidance, depth of experience, and commitment to service and collaboration have made ImageStudio a valued business partner.

          Kris Newman, Assistant Vice President, Corporate Communications

        • Enhanced Marketing Services

          I had the pleasure to work with ImageStudio on a number of projects and have been genuinely impressed with the service and products they provide. When ImageStudio was commissioned to develop our visual identity they created some branding that significantly improved our company image and helped pave the way to new business opportunities. We received many favorable comments from our clients and business partners about our new identity.

          ImageStudio also created the look and feel of The Molson Business Edge our primary communications vehicle for The Molson Customer Care Program. Offering more than just an eye for aesthetics ImageStudio helped shape and focus the perception of our marketing communications. The MCCP became the footprint for many similar programs to follow.

          If you’re looking for someone to develop and provide creative direction and then coordinate all the production details I strongly recommend ImageStudio.
