"Sometimes good design doesn't have to be yelling. It doesn't have to be boisterous. It's very thoughtful and much more considerate." - Lucille Tenazas on Leather Soul, branding design.

"This, we all gravitated to pretty quickly as a successfully executed system. Really exquisitely done." - Christopher Simmons on Leather Soul, branding design.

"I wanted to see how it worked. I wanted to dig around in it and find things." - Sean Adams on JetGraphics.net, website design.

"It's a very functional site and at the same time it's very attractive. There's an excellent sense of scale and the color palette is very restrained." - Christopher Simmons on JetGraphics.net, website design.

"It feels like it's so appropriate, but at the same time, smart." - Lucille Tenazas on Children's Museum of South Dakota, website design (prairieplay.org).
