DAVE UNGERECHT, Senior Category Manager, West Marine
I’ve worked with Toni for many years on a variety of private labeled products including bringing her onboard when expanding our kayak category. We hired her services to create a new sub-brand and packaging for a full line of kayak accessories. Initial sales exceeded my expectations resulting in a 140% increase in revenue. In short, her knowledge, responsiveness and ability to grasp the big picture has served me well.

Toni put together advertising materials for me on a tight time line and under budget. Her design was innovative, clever, and memorable. When I saw the Apple I-Pod campaign it reminded me of the artwork she did for me. I will always wonder if some one saw our artwork and was inspired.

 

TOM OLLER, Former Director of Private Label, West Marine
I worked with Toni for close to 20 years and relied on her design skills for a variety of projects, primarily packaging for our private label merchandise. She designed the look of several products (binoculars, inflatable kayaks, and foul weather gear). Her can do attitude and ability to work with team members in a fast-paced corporate setting made it a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend Toni and the Art Dept. to any serious business professional.

 

JOHN DRAKOS, Owner, Winterize It Pro
I’m very impressed with the creativity and service I experienced while working with Toni of the Art Dept. We collaborated to launch a new product which involved a label redesign and coming up with marketing materials for a trade show. Each project was time sensitive and all were delivered on time and within a tight budget. I really appreciate the attention to detail and Toni’s willingness to educate me as to the process and different design options. I look forward to us working together again.

 

ERIC RUPP, CEO, Laundry Care Express
I’ll take any opportunity to tout the collaborative instincts and intuition that Toni Henderson and the Art Dept. brings. As we created Laundry Care Express from the ground up — she started with a cool logo. Then came collateral materials, the look and feel of our website, internet ads, even van-wrap graphics. Now, as we push into new markets, it all stands the test of time.

 

MARY OFFERMANN, Fine Artist, Santa Cruz, CA
I have worked with Toni Henderson for a couple of decades now; she has the uncanny ability to make my publicity completely reflect my sensibility. She is easy to work with and always comes up with terrific visual presentations and a good price. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

 

CHRIS ARUTA, Steiner Optics
We recently collaborated with Toni Henderson of the Art Dept. to brand and package a series of binoculars which included working with and coordinating several people in three different locations around the world. Toni’s attention to detail throughout was only surpassed by her great sense of design AND humor. It made my job a lot easier.

If you need a visual communicator to sell your services or products, Toni at the Art Dept. is your gal. She created a logo for me close to 30 years ago that I still love, it still receives compliments and looks current. Being in the real estate business, I know a good investment when I see one and Toni’s work is simply that — a terrific investment!
