“When I was searching for as much information as possible to learn how to transition my business from being 100% in person to including virtual work, I wanted to know how to express myself with my standard delivery. Whiskey and Red’s messaging rang true. Design and image are something, I am well aware, communicate who we are. I’m also well aware that while I adore it, I’m not a designer. So I wanted to find someone who completely understood me and could express it visually, artistically. Because while I’m not a designer, I am creative in a different way.

My experience was symbiotic, fantastic, fun, successful. Julie and Steve both completely understood not only me, but what my business needed to succeed online. That is the piece many other companies lack. While there are other designers and developers (arguably, perhaps not as talented), the total combination is missing. With both of you, you put all the components together for what I needed to succeed.

Would I recommend Whiskey and Red? No question, absolutely, of course. And already have.”

“I found Whiskey & Red through instagram. I’m not sure if someone I follow had design work done or if I searched through hashtags though I think it was the latter! I desperately needed an overhaul of my branding. I needed logos and color schemes, basically a total re-brand.

My experience was great! It was super smooth and efficient, which was wonderful for a busy business owner like myself! I never doubted Julie’s design abilities and her instinct as an artist was always spot on. She did a wonderful job integrating my style and ideas into the perfect, professional branding I needed.

I would definitely recommend Whiskey and Red! Julie’s professionalism is top notch. If ever I needed help or just a trusted opinion on design elements for my business, she would be the first person I would ask.”

“I believe I came across Julie Harris Design on Instagram…but it was probably at least 3 years ago. I was looking for a total re-brand and new website to match the new brand. I honestly don’t know if there is a word to describe my feelings about working with Julie and Steve. I’m not even sure where to start.

From the very beginning the process was amazing. When I first reached out to Julie she was actually somewhat familiar with my business from social media and for her to already know a little about my business going into our initial consultation was very impressive. She clearly communicated what her branding process was like, clearly communicated the expectations from both sides, as well as answered any and all questions that I had at the time. She never left much room for me to guess or wonder what I needed to do or what she needed from me. I was able to share with Julie some thoughts/ideas that I had but she totally took them and made them ten times better than what I had imagined. Once we nailed down the new Captivating Calligraphy brand, it was time to bring Steve in to build the new website. My experience only got that much better! Same thing, Steve communicated everything that he needed from me in order to get my new site created. He was very responsive to my questions, thoughts and/or ideas. Overall, Julie & Steve both exceeded my expectations far above what I could have ever imagined. I am SO glad that I decided to choose Whisky & Red to make such an important investment for my business.”

“I discovered Whiskey & Red Design through Pinterest. I needed help with the visual branding of my new business Art World Adventures. Working with Julie was a wonderful experience. She demonstrated true professionalism in every interaction we had, from the initial consultation through to the final file delivery, and I really appreciated how she seemed to approach the project with genuine enthusiasm. I felt confident in Julie’s ability to create a strong visual identity for my brand and she went above and beyond my expectations. I LOVE my new logo and I’m so excited to start using it as I grow my brand. Thank you, Julie!

I will definitely be working with Whiskey & Red again the future as my business grows and evolves and would recommend their services to anyone who needs helps with branding or website design.”

Melba Dalsin

“We first discovered Whiskey and Red on Pinterest. We were looking for a website designer, preferably a small business owner so that we could be in direct contact with the designer throughout the process and to ensure the designer would understand our needs as a startup company.

Julie and Steve are an absolute dynamic duo! Julie and her team work with excellence while maintaining a sense of ease, which was greatly appreciated as we embarked on this new journey! We would absolutely work with Whiskey and Red again.”

Traci and Eric Hatton

“I discovered Whiskey and Red when I read an article Julie authored regarding branding, and I loved what I read, checked out their work and knew right away they were the goods. They made it very easy for me to see what I would be working with.

The short answer to what I was looking for is full branding. I was tired of trying to put together a branding team myself with fiverr. I thought if I could muster up a decent idea, that the fiverr crowd could embellish or top them. Well, I was proven dead wrong with my experience. Thinking I could tame the fiverr crowd to performing at the level I ultimately wanted was the worst idea ever. I should have been locked up to have my head examined because I knew better. Yet I did it.

If I would have known about Whiskey and Red from the start, I would have saved myself, roughly $500 and at least 5 months of bumping my head against walls.

I was able to cut the time I expected to have my site and branding done by 60%. Most importantly, it was done right! I could have lost more time and money, but luckily I inevitably made the right choice.

I never wondered if Julie or Steve were going to answer an email or be on time to a meeting or whether the work turned in would be excellent. I always knew for sure and I genuinely knew I didn’t have to worry. Would I work with Whiskey and Red again? Absolutely!”

“Julie was referred to me by Jodi Farrell, my vocal teacher. I needed a branding package and a website built. Working with Julie and Steve was a fantastic experience. I really loved their process which really helped me to get clear on the visual style I wanted and the elements of my site that were important to me. I’ve had less positive experiences with other designers in the past and Julie and Steve have such a wonderful way of orchestrating the process so that, in the end, I got exactly what I dreamed of. I am extremely happy with the outcome! 

Would I work with Whiskey & Red Design again in the future, and recommend their services to others in need of branding or website design? Absolutely. I will definitely work with them again and look forward to having my site grow in functionality and other features as my business grows.” 

Andrew Bassuk

“I found Julie through Pinterest. I wanted help with my branding. I knew what I needed but realized I didn’t have the design expertise to create brand collateral that I could be proud of. I was looking for a design and branding expert who had a style that I admired (Julie’s branding on her Pinterest posts appealed to me and I started following her to decide whether she was the expert that I could work with).

Julie was absolutely five star! She is a rare combination of energy and creativity combined with an efficient and systematic approach. She is a true master of brand design, managing to transpose my thoughts and values into beautiful modern brand collateral for my website. Working with Julie has been thrilling and enlightening. Would I recommend working with Julie? Yes, yes, yes! I would highly recommend Julie’s services – she is a true talent.”

Fiona Flintham

“I was originally introduced to Julie through our mutual friend and colleague Marianne Manthy of Design Your Own {Lovely} Blog. I had worked with Julie in the past as we had collaborated on a digital workbook, “Webinar Essentials” together, and I had partnered with her and her developer Steven to develop another site for a personal project of mine, razwanawahid.com.

Working with Julie and her team was an absolute delight. From start to finish, the experience felt professional and always in control. The design and development skills of Julie and the team are second to none. They have a way of tuning into your personal style and reflecting this on your website and marketing material. It isn’t just about what colours make up a logo or what font works well. It’s about creating an experience on a website that reflects exactly what your brand stands for. Julie and her team are able to capture that in detail.”

Razwana Wahid

“I first discovered Julie when I was searching for a designer that I could connect rather than just a designer to get a job done. I searched pinterest to see what there was, what I loved and who gave sound design advice as well as created beautiful designs. I thought I just needed branding but realised very soon that execution of that design needed to be in one place and I wanted a website built as well.

My experience working with Julie was excellent. I loved the ideas, great flow and her developer Steve wasn’t so techie with me, so I got what he said which was a huge relief. I also loved the fact I could hire him for an hour to go through anything I missed. Julie was involved all the way through the process. In fact the whole process was relaxed and directional from the start.

I would definitely work with Julie and Steve again. She listens, asks questions, and creates beautiful designs.”

Melody Akena

“I was recommended Julie by a good friend Jamie Yoshida who had also used Julie for her business. I needed a whole new website- branding, logo, copy and design.

Julie was amazing- she took the time to attend one of my meditation evenings so she could personally experience what I do and we had a follow up meeting in person so she could ask me exactly what it was I was looking for – this was all during her packing and relocating!! It just shows her professionalism and her dedication to her work and her clients and this remained consistent throughout the whole time she worked with me. Julie was so efficient in responding to my questions (brilliant communication) explaining everything she was doing and why and really took the time and attention to do quality work that was in alignment with me and my work.

Julie is one of the most dedicated professional and talented people in her field of work I have experienced- I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone! It was a beautiful positive time working with her!”

Emma Mitchell

“I heard of Julie on artsandclassy.com. The owner of that site mentioned that she hired Julie and I clicked the link and went to Julie’s site. I remember this day I was blog searching because I was feeling stuck and when I read Julie’s brand development package and it was like she read my mind about what specifically I needed help with.

I needed help finding the voice of my brand. I had ideas, lots of ideas but I didn’t how to move forward and I was really scared to make the wrong move. I needed someone that would let me share all my ideas and help me make sense of them and then help me create useful items for my business, an about page, core values.

Julie was a dream to work with. On our first conversation Julie, was able to summarize my ideas in the perfect way for my brand. It was crazy. I hadn’t been able to do that for the months I’d been planning and brainstorming and filling out worksheets. During each session we got more to the core of my business and how to describe it. Julie asked the right questions to get me to think critically and ultimately come up with some really great ideas and really great content for my brand. She was available and I appreciated that so much. Julie happily answered my questions in between sessions that allowed us to really hit the ground running during our sessions. I think no matter where you are in your business some coaching can help. I’m a believer now.

Yes, I would totally recommend working with Julie, and I plan to do so again. I’m looking forward to future launches and expanding my business and being able to work with Julie again and I will absolutely recommend her to anyone I know looking for a similar service.”

“We were ready to upgrade to a professional image and branding for our business. We had commissioned a logo image from an online artists’ collective and now wanted to incorporate it into our social media and marketing materials. Julie’s Social Media Marketing package articulated just what we were looking for and we enthusiastically got started with her on it. Unfortunately, on our own, we hadn’t gone through a proper process of determining our brand identity before choosing a logo image. Consequently, in the process of trying to use it, it became apparent that we’d ended up with a design that didn’t really reflect the image we wanted to convey.

Julie was awesome in that she was totally willing to work with it anyway if that’s what we wanted, but with her gentle advice and guidance, we learned about the steps that we could take to build our brand on a sound foundation. Her Branding and Logo Design package is designed to do just that and so we engaged her to take us through that process first. We are so glad we did! We ended up with a solid brand identity and a fabulous new look and logo that we know reflects who we are and the qualities we want to communicate.

Julie is a delight. She is personable, knowledgeable and fun to work with. She’s excellent with communications and with managing expectations which I appreciate. She is reliable and efficient and delivers on time. “Branding” can seem mysterious if it’s not your field. Julie has created step-by-step processes she can lead you through to come up with something that uniquely and completely expresses you. If you follow her guidance and do your part, you get a fabulous result! Watch out world, here comes the new Uncle’s! :D”

Barbara & Paul Logan

“Julie Harris is the best! I am so thankful that hired her to help me with rebranding for the renovation of my website for 2015. Her amazing effective detailed process of meeting with me and asking me the right questions to help me get my own story out was totally impressive and led to successful results. I am learning so much from her. You would be crazy not to hire Julie. She is highly organized, passionate about her work and so talented at branding and content writing. I was so impressed with her that I went further and hired her to handle content for my blog and social media. Julie is a life saver!”

Tracy Wright Corvo

“Starting my own business was difficult, but It wasn’t overwhelming until it came to the website design. Within a week of working with Steve, he had created a web design that encapsulated everything I wanted Brewed Bars to portray and even gave me a better understanding of my entrepreneurial goals.”

Justin Farrell

“Whiskey & Red Design’s work was wonderfully executed. Steve was able to translate the artistic direction of my site into a beautiful functioning brand. I would absolutely use his services in the future and would recommend him to anyone. Extremely professional, timely and quality work.”

Kate Horsman

“Julie is incredibly insightful with her creative and inspiring ideas.  She really made me feel like she understood my needs and helped me to focus on how to fulfill them.  She came up with suggestions I never would have thought of on my own. She had such talent for designing and helped me to zero in on my targeting market. being both creative and business minded was just the combination I was looking for.

Julie is very competent and organized.  I appreciated her attentive and timely work ethic. It really helped relieve a lot of stress on my part.

Working with Julie was such a positive experience as she is so positive, herself.  Her passion for what she does left me left me feeling no doubts that I had found the perfect person to help me transform my businesses to remain successful and be able to keep up with this ever changing social media world.

Steve’s creative and efficient work, designing and programming my website, markedly improved my business revenue and visibility by providing a professional looking and user friendly site for all who use the internet to find services and goods. If you are looking for a way to increase revenue and visibility online but aren’t sure how, let Whiskey & Red help you!”
