Chris Grinnell is an excellent graphic artist. He is a good listener and easy to work with. Keeping the clients needs in mind and coming up with creative and beautiful design is a gift Chris has.

Over the past 10 years Chris has developed our web site to our exact specifications and then re-engineered the web site three times to meet the changing needs of our business. Each time we ask him to redesign the site he produces new logos for our products, new graphics for the site and provides new technology to present our ideas in the most efficient way possible. Chris has a special talent for turning ideas into art. He has produced amazing logos for the software that we write along with the brochures, web sites and graphics that present the benefits of our software in pictures and words. In short, Chris makes us look good. The best part of working with Chris is that he takes responsibility for producing the highest quality work that he possibly can. There are no short cuts that can be taken when an artist attempts to take a hundered different ideas and harness them into one simple image. We depend on Chris to help bring our ideas to life.

A couple years ago ZoeCare was in the midst of rebranding. When Chris Grinnell undertook the task of designing our logo he really got to know Zoe's mission, purpose and vision. In doing so he not only captured the essence of ZoeCare with his logo design, but also helped us understand the nuances of branding, marketing and preserving the integrity of our logo as we move forward. If you need a logo, graphic design materials, or a new website design I heartily recommend Chris Grinnell of Bearing the Light.

It has been our pleasure to work with Bearing the Light on several projects including logo design, business cards, letterhead and large promotional posters. In all cases the work was completed on schedule to our complete satisfaction. The staff was easy to work with and communication was fast and efficient - very important since we are located in Texas. Cost was very reasonable and "service after sale" was outstanding. I would heartily recommend Bearing the Light to anyone needing graphic design services.

Bearing the Light provided excellent design services for a report that we were self publishing. Chris was very happy to search for photos for the publication and provided many options for us to consider. His creativity helped to guide the development of the project and at the same time he took our suggestions for changes and responded to those in a very timely manner. Chris was very patient in responding to our last minute requests for edits and was willing and eager to create a document that satisfied us fully.
