Staten Island Arts

"When Staten Island Arts began the branding process, we wanted a memorable and exciting design that reflected the spirit of the organization. After looking at many different portfolios, I found Adam Ladd. His strong, graphic sensibility and customer-centered approach won me over. But the proof is in the project itself. And Adam not only met the challenge we put out for him, he exceeded our expectations. From the beginning, his focus was on getting to know our organization and understanding our needs. Throughout the process, he listened carefully and took our comments and feedback seriously. He then delivered a brand design that we could connect to—a clean, eye-catching mark that will help Staten Island Arts shine. I highly recommend his services, and I look forward to hiring him again on future projects."

Potty Mouth Soap, LLC

"Our company set out to develop a logo for our newest product 'Potty Mouth Soap.' After contracting with an online logo company we soon learned that it was a mistake. We reviewed a dozen or so logos over a four week period and every time ended with the same result, disappointed. We weren't getting the right feel. Not only was time flying by, our tempers were rising. The bottom line with that company was just a waste of time and money. The problem was simple, they weren't listening to us. Finally, we found Ladd Design. I spoke with the owner, Adam Ladd, for a few minutes to share what we were looking for. To my surprise, I got an email back from Ladd Design a few days later that asked us to look at a logo design. I remember that day very clear when I opened my email; I sat back in my chair and said out loud, "'That's it.'" Adam had listened to us, the first time, and we will never make that original mistake again. Now the logo is on our products worldwide, and we have gotten many compliments on the logo."
