I feel so fortunate to have Mark Hand doing my design and layout. We've been working together a long time and always everything gets done so quickly, efficiently and creatively. We have an easy back and forth with ideas and I can't remember a single time I've been unhappy with a job. I would recommend Mark most highly to others. I intend to keep using Mark's services for the foreseeable future.

I have worked with Mark Hand Design for the past seven years, omg, has it been that long.  Mark is not just a design guy but he also gets the "vision" that I might have for a particular event, brochure, or cover.  He is meticulous and detail-oriented, a great quality to have in a designer, and he is always catching my errors and quietly fixing them.  I highly recommend Mark for his clean, crisp style and his ability to work within tight deadlines.

I have worked with Mark Hand over the years in my capacity as coordinator for a charitable organization and also as an independent artist for design work with newsletters, annual reports and books.  Mark has always been extremely organized and great to work with and has been able to accommodate tight deadlines in many instances.  He is always courteous and pleasant to work with and has great design ideas for our publications.  I am also aware of his work with a local publisher and know that he has created excellent book cover designs.  I worked closely with Mark myself on two book publication projects and his expertise, knowledge and efficient style made the process very smooth and stress-free.

 I would not hesitate to recommend Mark for your design and publication needs.

I have worked with Mark for a decade and he has great creative ideas for brochures, book covers, stationary, bookmarks, posters etc. He is an experienced professional, quick and patient, never stressed, stays within budget (so there are no surprises); works, it seems, effortlessly which gives me a feeling of confidence and calm, important in this world of deadlines and intensity.
