My experience of working with Grue was extremely positive. I found this artist to be particularly good at paying close attention to my ideas yet bringing enough creativity and artistic enthusiasm to ensure the beauty of the outcome. Correspondence throughout was prompt, professional and solution-orientated. As such I would recommend Grue without hesitation.
Currently working with Sidao on a children's book. Main character has been designed and going well.
Amazing job! Very talented
Nice and fitting design, she really read the brief and understood what I was looking for.
This is the second time I've had the opportunity to work with this particular designer. He's incredibly responsive, takes direction well and really has the unique ability to take my ideas and turn them into beautiful creations that reflect my brand. I'd highly recommend!

like vibrant colors, robust characters, and full lettering/font
would like the name/lettering to have character of its own, such that
we could "extract" it from the illustration and use it alone as
necessary. But we also want to play on the term "Smokin' Hot"- we
would like to see it come to life in the illustration. We have
attached a couple of examples of the styles we like. But we aren't
set in our ways, let your
Our roof color and building color are shown in the first two
attachments. (The building color will actually be a bit darker). We
really like the logos in the next two attachments. Our building (under
renovation) are the final two images
