High Five

AJAX/Santa Barbara Refrigeration

“We came to Sidekick Creative with a pretty lofty goal for a small company like ours.  We essentially wanted to take our Company logo that had been around for over thirty years and update it.  Needless to say we were a bit nervous about it as it represented a major shift for us.  To top things off, budget was a big concern too.

Jane and Jake took on the project with a lot of energy and optimism and that helped put us at ease.  After our first conceptual meeting they took over and within a short period came back to us with a design that blew us away.  It was love at first sight:  we went from our old traditional penguin logo to a new fun, animated yet still classic looking new mascot!  We then took the new design out to the public with a nice big vehicle wrap, new business cards, promotional items and solution-specific information cards.  The feedback has been nothing less than Fantastic.  I have people approach me that ask if they can have their picture taken next to my newly wrapped van all the time!  Kids want stickers and they love the new penguin!  I went from being ok with the same old same old to being proud and excited about my new company logo.  More importantly it has created an opportunity to reinvent the company on a certain level and to generate a new “buzz.”  People see the change and naturally want to know what is new and what is going on with a company that has such a great new logo.  It’s positively attractive.

Overall, our experience with Sidekick has been great.  Personable, affordable and second-to-none product output!  They are hugely artistic and have really lived up to their philosophy of being our company’s creative sidekick!”

Georgia’s Smokehouse

“We used Jane and the gang at SideKick Creative for our entire design and branding for our food truck. Everything seen with Georgia on it, from business cards and t-shirts to the entire wrap of our 30′ truck, they have created.  We gave them a sample girl (Much less family oriented than the Georgia you see today) and they took her and ran with the theme and did more than we could have ever hoped or dreamed for. They thought of details we’d never think of like giving her BBQ tongs, or making her figure a little curvy because, “She can throw down and eat some BBQ”.  They rock!  Every time they give us a design for something, whether it’s a flyer, menu, coupon, etc, we look at it and say to each other, “Oh yeah… that’s why we pay them!”  They are not only skilled, talented, creative individuals but they are great people to the heart.  We love working with Sidekick.. And feeding them!”

Calle Real Center Merchants Association

“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the logo you created for our Caring and Sharing annual event.  The process was painless. You interviewed me for about an hour and asked questions about the event – what we were trying to achieve and how it evolved. You then went away and did your magic.  You called me back (right on schedule) and presented me with far more options than I ever expected and they were all good. You explained your reasoning your artistic decisions in both the graphic design and the font choices and then you actually listened to my feedback and worked with me, on the spot, to make some adjustments. The final result is as perfect as I could have hoped for and conveys at a glance the spirit and feeling of the event.  In short, it made me smile. Everyone I have shown it to has had high praise. I highly recommend Sidekick Creative to anyone with a logo or identity design project.”

Kras Design Studio

“Sidekick Creative is a rare breed of design firm in today’s competitive market that put an emphasis on quality, creativity, timelessness and integrity.

As principal architect of a newly established design studio, I sought out a graphic firm to establish a new identity that mirrored my beliefs. After our first meeting I was convinced that Sidekick Creative were the ones that were going to take my concepts to the next level. They were engaged in the challenge from the outset and we continued to work together closely throughout the process to deliver a product of quality above and beyond what was expected. Sidekick Creative provided the needed “one-two punch” of rhythm and repose to the graphics and layout.

After coming up with my initial logo, SC has gone along for the ride, designing my firm’s letterhead, marketing posters, document titleblocks and website.

(As I said before,) In every challenge that was presented to them, Sidekick Creative has stepped up, delivering a quality project that has lasting value. And they make me look good.”

Le Beurre Shop

“The team at Sidekick Creative is amazing!   They basically made the launch of Le Beurre Shop a success.  The design of my labels and website are without question the reason why customers, beauty bloggers and retailers have been drawn to my product. I absolutely trust them with my brand, my image and my name.  Without Sidekick Creative, there is no Beurre.  Love, love, love you guys!”
