Who we’ve helped

Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing companies and organizations. Here’s a look at who we’ve collaborated with and what they have to say about our work:

As the founder of Ava’s Grace Scholarship Foundation, an organization dealing with children of incarceration, I knew how important it would be for us to present ourselves to the world as an organization that provides hope and support for children typically not comfortable talking about their situation. Christy Fuston helped pull my thoughts and vision out of my head and created what I consider to be a beautiful, impactful and effective brand for our organization. From the website, to the logo and everything in between, Christy has been there for us. Her creativity is amazing and she is fantastic to work with. I am complemented regularly on our brand and image and I have her to thank for that.

– Stephanie Regagnon, Founder/Executive Director, Ava's Grace Scholarship Foundation
 

Christy was there for me in the beginning stages when my reflexology business idea was just a dream. She helped turn my vision into reality. After just a few meetings, she listened to my goals and needs and was able to create and deliver the perfect logo. Daily, I get compliments on our logo and marketing collateral. Christy’s level of patience, reliability, and professionalism is top-notch. She is wonderful to work with; I highly recommend Fuston Creative!

– Kelly Conti, Owner, De La Sole Reflexology Spa
 

I wanted you to know how much we thoroughly enjoy working with you! You are always so helpful, professional, and quick to respond while consistently delivering excellent work. We particularly appreciate your ability to take a project and hit the mark without needing a lot of direction. It is so nice to work with a designer that will take the time to listen and work through a project, but also know when to take a project and run with it on your own.

– Katie Gerber, Marketing Manager – Wine Sector, Verallia
 

What you have done for us through the re-branding process has been remarkable. By implementing the pieces you have helped us design, we have commanded the attention of customers and others throughout our trade area. The comments I hear about our new and improving image on a daily basis are outstanding. When you and I began this process of improving the FES image, I hadn’t expected the results to be so overwhelming.

– Sarah Swanson, Human Resources, Farm Equipment Sales
 

Christy is an excellent designer, easy to work with, and above all a creative professional that understands the needs, requirements, and restrictions of business. We have worked with Christy to integrate a common look and feel through all of our marketing collateral and have been extremely happy with the results. She took our brand image from disorganized and bland to award winning (literally!). In more than a decade of working with designers and agencies I have never had an experience as satisfying as working with Christy. I would highly recommend Fuston Creative for anyone looking for a creative agency.

– Jake Mortensen, Marketing Communications Manager, AgraQuest, Inc.
 

I have worked with several graphic designers and I have found none as professional, helpful, and responsive as Christy. She created customized clothing design, promotional postcards, and race shirts for both our triathlon club and a half marathon race. Christy consulted with our staff in the beginning of the project, making certain she understood our goals while she developed the original concepts. Having experience with clothing manufacturers, Christy offered advice that proved invaluable once the product went to the manufacturer. She followed through with the manufacturer to make sure the template was correct, something that ultimately saved timely delays we had experienced with previous designers. I highly recommend Fuston Creative.

– Sue Dziuban, Vice President, Multisport Madness
 

We are so grateful to have Fuston Creative as Jowler Creek’s design agency. The logo and branding campaign they designed helped shape our business and positively differentiate it in the marketplace. Their work is top-notch and not a day goes by without someone commenting on how great our logo, labels, website, shirts, or any of the other items are that Fuston Creative designed and developed for us. We highly recommend them.

– Colleen Gerke, Owner, Jowler Creek Vineyard & Winery
 

Christy really took the time to understand my brand and target audience to maximize the effectiveness of my online and direct mail campaigns. Presenting creative to my client is always a breeze when designed by Fuston Creative, which speeds up the approval process and keeps my marketing programs running smoothly.

– Jonathan Faitel, Account Manager, Active Marketing Group – The Active Network
 

When we first contacted Fuston Creative, we were looking for a fresh perspective on our very outdated website. Interestingly enough, we not only created a whole new website, but we gave our brand a complete overhaul at the same time. Throughout the process, we engaged in many discussions, from our brand’s visual identity to determining the pure essence of our brand personality. As a result of developing our Brand Standards, everything fell into place after that…I think our sales teams have been hugely impacted in their ability to distinguish our brand.

– Kris Palmer, Director Creative Strategy, Grapevine Designs
