The assignment was to make a hat made of all dried plant materials based on a fairy tale character, so I chose the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid. It was made from Corm husks, acorn caps carved avacado pits (for the skulls), eucalyptus, and reindeer moss. I got an honorable mention, however we got a "Judge's Class Commendation" stating that all four of the entries should have all received blue ribbons.
"I’ve had the pleasure to hire Gardiner Design to perform multiple projects under multiple companies. There are three things that keep bringing me back to this small firm; bright and innovative design work, reliable and timely completion of projects, and very competitive pricing. Debi Gardiner and her team are always easy to work with on the often difficult process of developing new design ideas that look great, but also support my company’s business objectives. From our websites to our business cards, and everything in-between, they make us look good. And they make it look easy."- Michael J. Prevost, CEO / Innovative Applied Sciences

"Debi Gardiner has been 'my' graphic designer for the past 15 years. Her creativity is contagious and her artwork speaks for itself... but let me tell you the best part - she is a real pro whom you can count on even under the tightest deadlines. She has saved my bacon more times than I care to admit. Debi is absolutely terrific to work with."- Matt Van Wagner, Former Marketing Manager / Flynn Systems
"Debi’s style and professionalism have had a tremendous impact on the many projects we’ve done with her, from simple logos to multi-spread brochures and packaging, all delivered promptly at a fair price"- Scott Gridley, Director of BioProducts / Blue Sky Biotech, Inc.
"Having Debi Gardiner design and build a website for my craft gallery was a great experience. I had been approached by so many "web-masters", but none of them seemed to notice that my craft gallery was different from the other businesses they'd done. Debi designed a site that is as personal as my gallery is. She took my vague ideas about what I wanted and amazed me with how she implemented them. I've been thrilled with my site... how it looks, how it works, how much business it has brought me."- Glenn Johnson, Owner / Handworks Gallery of American Crafts
"Our web site gets praise from virtually every person we get a response from, and that's no small tribute. "It's so imaginative... so well organized." "Love your web site"! It's what we've been wanting to do for years. Thanks, Debi, for fledging For the Birds on to the internet."- Chris Ridley, Retired Owner / For the Birds
"As the marketing director for a small company, it is a pleasure to have a creative resource like Debi. She is excellent in soliciting our amateur input and incorporating it into a professional result. The process itself is enjoyable." - Richard Passarelli / Sigmet
"Debi's creative work was integral to the rebranding of our over-50 career site. She really delivered, under a tight time line, on a great logo, site look and booth exhibit as well as marketing materials. Without Debi's work, we would not have successfully launched at the AARP National Convention." - Nancy Peterson / Work Force 50
"Debi has a natural talent and creativity at graphic design which results in stunning artwork and fast results. Just give her the basic parameters of your project and let her go. What she comes up with will be way better than anything you have been thinking of. Apart from her graphic abilities she is a pleasure to do business with. She is accurate in her quotes and delivery times, and goes the extra mile to meet deadlines and work around any obstacles that may occur." - Peter Darnell, President / Visual Solutions
"Please accept my thanks and congratulations on the exceptional new Parmenter website. I’m keenly aware of how many hours of thought, testing and creativity are required to “go live” with a new website. Parmenter certainly benefited from your fresh approach but equally important, you captured the spirit, breadth and importance of their work. As a Web commuter I appreciate the ease of navigation, the overall clarity and organization of the site. Thank you again for giving Parmenter this meaningful contribution and a significant presence on the web." - Robin Fields / Parmenter Board of Trustees
