“It has been a wonderful experience working with Mary Chong Graphic Design. Mary was instrumental in helping me develop my logo and coordinating the printing of all materials for the start-up of my accounting practice. I could not take any chances on presenting the wrong image to my potential client base. Mary guided me through the design process so that I started with my best foot forward. Mary’s professionalism was only matched by her creativity. Mary was easy to work with and I would recommend Mary to anyone looking to for graphic design and printing services.”

“Mary is wonderful to work with. Her work is excellent and creative, while also cost effective and time efficient. Mary was able to pinpoint my needs and present the material with an eye-catching design and in a professional manner for my specific audience. Her suggestions, knowledge, and management of print/production proved her ability to bring a piece from concept to final product. Mary’s integrity, consistency, and reliability makes me feel at ease every time I use her services. Her approach to work is fun, friendly, and creative. I highly recommend Mary Chong for your graphic design needs.”

“I have been using Mary Chong as our graphic designer for a number of years now. She quickly grasps what we are looking to produce, and consistently provides superior professional looking products. In the past, I had seen creative from other designers who just didn’t “get” what we were looking for, or they presented designs that were neither professional nor suited our industry. Mary understands these subtleties and is able to accurately reflect the message and nature of our business. I always look forward to the next project I will do with her.”
James Ahola

“Mary Chong is a conscientious designer that really listens to what you need done for your project, then gets the job done right and on time. At the same time, she brings her own ideas and concepts to the table, which helps us find the right design for each individual project. Her attention to detail and colour schemes is highly valued, especially when dealing with such crucial information. She always seems to find the right blend of colour and design to not only accent but emphasize the text and each concept for the reader. I highly recommend Mary for any project needs you may have.”
