“I was happy to find myself on a team with Clint at my first agency job in Chicago. One thing that stands out about Clint is his consistent take-no-short-cuts approach to design. He taught me a great deal about developing a sturdy concept as the base to every design—no matter how big or small. Clint is not only a exemplary designer, but also a talented writer, self-starter, investigator and motivator—an excellent asset to any team.”
—Melissa Leonard | Designer at BatesMeron Sweet Design
“Whenever I’m asked for a recommendation for a designer, Clint is the first person I approach. From a personable yet professional demeanor to expert knowledge to flawless deliverables, Clint is always a designer I’d recommend, especially for identity systems design or digital.
As a web development professional, I demand a high level of proficiency of designers when I’m contracting with one for a web design project. Web isn’t print—and Clint get that. His work is always concept-driven and follows (or rather leads) the ever-changing digital landscape. When I’ve worked with Clint, he’s understood the restrictions and limitations of what digital design presents… and also when to question whether a boundary can be pushed, which is a quality I find necessary in a designer who is committed to advancing the field, rather than marinating in the status quo.”
