Kind Words

A few nice people saying nice things.

  • Jordan Karcher, Owner of Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co.

    “If you are looking for a designer who will care for your brands as much as you care for the business, I highly recommend contacting Tiny Bold Design! Fun fact, she actually let us have a photo shoot in her house with 6 dogs, 9 people, and hot coffee in every room… good luck finding another design firm with that type of commitment to your brand!”

  • Lisa Guillot, Founder of Step Brightly Creative Group

    “Alison is a kind, smart, witty, and lighthearted person to work with, which makes working with her enjoyable and recommending her all the easier.”

  • Thomas Peri, Chicago Public Schools

    “I would recommend Tiny Bold to any organization looking for graphic design work, and particularly to start-ups or NPOs who may need some additional support (OK, hand-holding) with creating a design and an identity.”

    - Thomas Peri, Chicago Public Schools
  • Todd Jones, Founder of Every Last Morsel

    “The logo she artfully crafted for my business has served as a priceless addition to our pursuit. A good logo offers a glimpse unto the soul of an organization just as a designer’s work offers glimpse unto their character, and Alison’s identity as a designer is one of empathy, passion and persistence.”

  • Abi Humber, 826CHI

    “Alison is a wildly talented designer who truly cares about her clients; she works quickly, is flexible, and has always exceeded our expectations.”
