WHAT THE PEOPLE SAY

I’ve had the pleasure of working  with Blend on print and digital projects for the past four year. They are always professional and receptive to feedback. I can depend on them to deliver on time and help me out on rush projects.

Anne Hernandez
Senior Marketing Officer

I am constantly amazed at the high quality of work they produce – the final products always exceed my expectations. The team is professional, efficient and always available to their clients. Working with the Blend Team has been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to working with them on future projects.

Antoniette Garda deCabezas
Development Officer, Special Events

I have had the pleasure of working with Blend on a number of projects over the last 8 years. Ali and his team brings an amazingly creative mind to the table and delivers above and beyond what is expected. Their attention to detail and willingness and eagerness to work with clients definitely makes projects flow seamlessly. Without a doubt, I endorse Ali Khamis and Blend Creative Studio.

The most noteworthy aspect of working with Ali is how quickly he 'got' what I was looking to do. He then was able to tranlate my ambiguous communication, multiple ideas/notions and vage references into a masterpiece so that I could say "that's it" - even though I wouldn't have known what I was looking for until I saw it. Ali is a gifted designer and has a talented extended network of others who can turn your idea into a commercial reality that is has style, sizzle and 'stickiness'

Ali and the rest of the Blend Creative Studio. team truly deserve more than the "top 3" limit with respect to attributes that I can select. Personable, professional, extremely knowledgeable and talented, Ali has truly made our visions come true! Ali translated our disjointed and uninformed expressions of our wants for Bacchus Sommelier Services' look and feel into a spot on, stylish, eye-catching and attention getting brand. Our continued thanks and appreciation to Ali and the Blend Creative Studio team!

Ali and the Blend Creative Studio team provide the perfect "blend" of creative intent with ability to ground ideas in client requirements. They took our design need and materialized it by listening, explaining and sharing ideas to make sure that we were part of the process. I highly recommend Blend Creative Studio as a team that delivers brilliant concept and design in a high quality collaborative experience.

Blend Creative Studio was unbelievably helpful to me when I was tasked with developing a marketing plan for camps at our 3 campuses. From developing logos to  constructing websites and designing forms, Blend Creative outdid themselves. They exceeded expectations with their efficiency in meeting our deadlines and often went above and beyond when handling any revisions that needed to be made.

Through Opening Hearts, I have had the pleasure of working with Blend Creative Studio on a number of projects. They have helped us create logos, postcards and sponsorship booklets – just to name a few. Their work has been very professional in all aspects. They are very creative, coming up extremely impressive designs for us. Ali, Lynn and everyone else at Blend are excellent at what they do and I highly recommend them.

Blend Creative Studio and I have had a lot of opportunities to work on many different projects together. From small-scale projects such as the refreshing old and tired creative to the development of new marketing collateral for Sunnybrook Foundation, YMCA of Greater Toronto and Children's Wish Foundation, Blend has consistently shown their ability to provide impactful and effective designs that help deliver the objectives of the initiatives. And unlike traditional design agencies, Ali and his team move at lightning speed to ensure that projects are delivered on time and on budget.

We consider Blend Creative Studio an integral partner of our organization. From flyers, to brochures, to more intensive rebranding with logo redesign, our experience has been positive.  Not only are we able to count on their creative expertise but we feel comfortable that they "get us" which reduces the amount of time spent on send-backs and rewrites.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

As the owner of a new business branding is extremely important to the success or failure of my new endeavour. To help achieve that end I enlisted the professionals at Blend Creative Studio. I have been working with Ali and his team for many years and knowing their commitment to their clients I choose to use them when the time came to start my own business. Together we have created marketing tools that have helped lift my business over well established competitors making Yellow Dog Grooming the groomer of choice in the Ancaster/Hamilton area. Thank you to the team at Blend. I look forward to using your services to a greater extent as my business grows.

The team at Blend helped us build our photo and digital foundation, and along the way, when our strategy changed in the middle of our project, Blend was quick to pivot and change the focus to deliver a great experience for our membership.  They understand what makes us distinct and were always ready with creative ideas and designs that were beyond our expectations."
