"Most places did not take the time to get to know me and truly understand what I wanted for my business. Alchemy's process is so thorough in truly creating a logo that matches the ethos of your business. I was lost before working with them and now have a product I am proud of. Thank you again."
"Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Alchemy to anyone seeking logo design and branding services. The company’s genuine commitment to understanding and realizing clients' visions, make it the ideal choice for exceptional design work."
"I wish I found Alchemy sooner. They listen to your needs and DELIVER! We are in the cannabis industry, which makes it tough to explain what we want when not too many people are familiar with the ins and outs. They did immense research and was able to come up with a final product that not only hit the aesthetic requirements, but has depth to the design."
"Working with the Alchemy Design team was full service and a 5-star experience, from start to finish! Every meeting was very professional, and always on time. I had been through several designers who could never capture the logo I was looking for, but the Alchemy team proved to be beautifully creative, and delivered an incredible design for my business."
"I'm honestly not used to working with someone who actually sticks to deadlines, and does really knock out designs. It came out far better then I had imagined, and I also did not have to go back and forth with edits. Hats off to these guys and this team!"
"I didn't know what I wanted my logo to look like, but we communicated several times and they nailed it! They were very understanding when I wanted to see color variations and spent extra time offering professional advice in regards to final decisions."
"What truly stood out to me was their excellent communication and customer service. Whenever I reached out, I got an answer quickly and in a direction that spurred me forward."
"Very high quality work. Alchemy are true artists, so definitely worth the investment in going with them, if you are truly seeking to build a brand that stands out!"
