Tara - we felt as if you were right in the room with us as we were brainstorming our Logo concept. You were amazingly intuitive as to the 'feel' we wanted the Logo to portray, and you stuck with us enthusiastically until it was just right. Being so confident about our 'image' will surely make us a huge success!

I was new to etsy and starting up my photography business. Miss Tara jumped at the chance to help me. She did everything I asked for and more! She took all of my thoughts about what I wanted and made them into a beautiful graphics for my shop. She made me a beautiful logo and did an amazing job on my banner and avatar! You can expect fast and friendly communication, complete attention to detail and a fabulous product from Graphic Design by Tara. Miss Tara is so easy to work with on custom jobs! She started on my project right away and had great communication through out the entire process - with updated photos as she worked. I didn't really know what I wanted but she was able to come up with something completely wonderful for me. Super friendly, super fast - I highly recommend this seller! It was worth every penny!

Tara created a logo for my new spa line. She created my logo in about 10 minutes initially. However, I had hired someone else before I saw her work. Upon seeing her work and not being happy with the other persons work I asked Tara if she would sell me the image she created as a sample for me. She was friendly, and obliged me. I cannot say how happy I am with her format, creativity, design, and all around business ethic. I would gladly hire Tara again for all my future designing needs. She is on call whenever I have questions and she doesn't charge an arm and a leg. She is fair, and quick.

"I asked Tara for a fresh new look for my Etsy banner. I gave her a few ideas of things I wanted to change and to give my banner a nice fresh look. Well what you see is the result of Tara's awesome work! I just love it, it is exactly what I was looking for! Thank you so much Tara!" http://www.mangogyrldesigns.etsy.com

I contacted Tara to help me in the process of opening my Etsy store, specifically requesting her graphic design services. I really had no idea how to begin creating my banner, avatar, and store logo. I first had a convo with Tara on April 17, 2010. She created a design for my avatar, and when I asked her if she could create a couple more so I could choose the one I liked best, she was more than willing. She also answered several questions regarding the setting up of my shop. Later, when I decided to have a store logo, she was very helpful in creating a logo I loved based on my interest in crocheting, cats, and my favorite color, purple. She was very willing to listen to me, and her communication with me regarding the details of my order was super. She also designed my business cards, thank you note cards, return labels, and stickers. We had twenty-seven convos during the process of her creating these things for me. I was extremely satisfied with the whole order, and she told me she is available if I have any further questions. It is obvious to me that customer satisfaction is a priority for her.

"While searching for custom design service packages on ETSY, I came across an image of a tree branch that was so lovely it gave me goose bumps. Although the image itself was not what I was looking for, it evoked the look and feel I was hoping to achieve with a custom design. I contacted Tara and two other graphic designers on ETSY with questions about how to get started. Tara was the only one to respond to my inquiry. She responded promptly and was eager to help! From our very first conversation, it was apparent that customer service and complete satisfaction were at the heart of her design services. I didn't realize how much help I was in need of until meeting Tara. She worked tirelessly through numerous revisions as I worked through my own process of discovery. She was invaluable in helping me to find just the right look for my shop. Browse her shop, check out her portfolio. You won't be disappointed! Her website promises to deliver unique, quality, and affordable graphics. Tara will deliver on her promise! She is guaranteed to meet and exceed all your expectations!" Trudi @ Dreaming Tree Farm
