This non-solicited comment from Brian Webb at Wonderland Printing is about Chelsea's amazing work on the FSI for Trent Hills Pharmacy! "Hi Schelle, I assume you or your company (graphic designer) created this flyer for Trent Hills Pharmacy, I think it’s very good, clean, not cluttered, all pertinent information is quickly located and easy to read. In all honesty it’s probably one of best I have seen in quite some time. Cheers, Brian!"

We love it when clients send us pictures! The note reads, "We look awesome!" and yes they do.

Thanks Schelle for your expertise in branding Curle’s Maple Products with logo details, rack and business cards, syrup and butter labels. Your infectious enthusiasm helped launch our 150th anniversary celebration which was an overwhelming success. Your eye behind the camera captured unique images that we can use on our website and future promotions. You definitely went way beyond our expectations with your promotional savvy. We can’t thank you enough.”

Tom Groot, Spirit of the Hills

“THANKS for all you did for us, we do have the best books and promotional material!!! Thanks!” Tracy Russell, Percy Agricultural Society

“Nice brochure. Wow! It makes all of my work look important! Thank you…”
Brian Middleton, Earl’s Lock and Door Services

“My first project with Schellé was on a brand new publication for a completely new client, so success was measured in so many ways. After months of research, writing, approvals, sales, and considerable diplomacy, we delivered the raw material to Schellé for layout, thinking we had thought through every detail. Wrong. Schellé doesn’t just accept an assignment – she assumes personal ownership of it and does not hesitate to question, suggest, demand, direct, and insist on graphic perfection. She made us rethink convention, demanded creative input, and gently suggested improvements in every facet from editorial to ad layout. A few months after our publication hit the streets, the team effort, in which Schellé can share, placed second in North America in an advertising competition. A few months later, it was awarded First Place in an editorial contest as the Best Niche Product – Wildcard Publication from Suburban Newspapers of America. Schellé’s leadership and interest in our product not only earned us recognition – it shone a very positive light on the Canadian Forces and shared the inside story of Canada’s busiest air base with a North American audience. Thank you, Schellé, for making us look good.”
Catherine Stutt, Editor, 8 Wing Matters
