When I sought out a branding guru/website designer, I had no idea the depth of remarkable I would get with Michele Perry. Her empathy, compassion, and genuine & honest approach has helped merge my expertise and my heart to create something that serves my clients AND fills my soul. It’s like she can see inside my head and my heart and pull out the pieces that I can quite recognize yet, or have maybe never dared to pursue... I can’t believe this is the woman I get to work with. I am so grateful.   

-Joanne


Michele is beyond amazing at this. She has taken my ideas, scratched onto various pieces of paper, and created a truly magnificent visual strategy. It was like she understood me and my vision even better than I did!! Thank you, Michele, for making my dream of many years come true. You are one outstanding woman.   

-Heather


I am completely awed by what Michele put together. She was a dream to work with and helped to refine my brand as we talked about logo ideas and my interests. Michele created a logo that perfectly describes my business... If you’re looking for someone who puts together design projects that draw raves from others, Michele is definitely the way to go!
