Client Thoughts

”It’s hard to know where to begin to express our gratefulness for the work you did for us. We are not getting turned down for sales requests. We basically have a 100% record. Unheard of! This is because of you all and the fine work you did, and pushed us to invest in. (The salt does taste good, too.) Thank you, thank you!“

— Nancy P Bruns, CEO
J. Q. Dickinson Salt-Works

”MESH understands how to build beautiful brand systems that work for large markets, as well as individual micro-entrepreneurs. They understand how to use design to support small business growth, and they are committed to racial and economic justice throughout the process.“

— Lisa Thompson, Market Director Flatbush Caton Market Brooklyn, New York

”The increased level of professionalism, authority, and credibility communicated through our new brand and marketing tools has opened many doors for us. The efficacy of our programming and marketing efforts has increased exponentially, leading not only to greater audience growth, but a greater interest from our constituents in the work we are doing, more frequent publicity opportunities, and also an increased ability to fundraise.“

— Emma Pepper, Program Director
Tamarack Foundation For the Arts, West Virginia

”I can't express to you enough, how much we appreciate the quality of work you have produced, the professionalism of your team and the ease and enjoyment of our experience. Having worked with you previously, when you rebranded my previous organization, the West Virginia Farmers Market Association, I had high expectations— but your studio has definitely surpassed them.“

— Kelly Crane, Executive Director
Oregon Farmers Markets Association

”Studio Mesh took our 2013 name change and ran with it to create a brand and visual identity that's both fresh and timeless. We've been around since 1981, but our new look is so strong it's hard to remember having anything else. We couldn't be happier with the MESH team’s creativity, professionalism, and commitment to quality work.“

— Carl Graziano, Communication Director
America's Essential Hospitals

”MESH turns even the most unfocused ideas into vibrant reality. It's not enough to say they have been our partners - more accurately, they have been our most trusted guides during a year that included a major rebranding, more than a dozen project-based micro-sites and the creation of a multi-layered news and community site. Get them while you can. “

— Erica Payne, Founder
Agenda Project New York, New York

”Equity and inclusion are in the bone structure of MESH values. As an immigration attorney originally from West Virginia, their value alignment and understanding of the intersectionality of small business, racial justice, and human rights has been crucial to our many collaborations over the years.“

— Varsha Kayi, Managing Partner Alight Legal Washington, DC

”The MESH team is incredibly talented. The projects that they’ve designed for us run the gamut from dense, text-heavy academic reports to user-friendly student guides, and each design encapsulates the essence of each work in an aesthetically pleasing way. We cannot say enough about their flexibility, professionalism, and communication from start to finish of each design process.“

— Zoë Johnson, Policy Coordinator & Tommasina Faratro, Special Projects Coordinator John Jay College for Justice and Opportunity
