Ross is an outstanding designer that meets his deadlines and is a joy to work with. Ross is quick to come up to speed, even on the most complex products. He has great ideas and will always take the time to listen to what you are looking for. I highly recommend him!
When we launched our new consultancy service: Transition, we asked RedSpark Creative to develop our brand. I was very impressed with the process they used to get to know our business and define our core brand values, then turn this into a visual brand. They then proceeded with implementing our marketing materials. Thanks to our very professional looking brand we have won many new clients that we surely wouldn’t have if we didn’t have such a polished look. This has resulted in us growing the company well ahead of our initial projections. We highly recommend RedSpark Creative to anyone who is considering building a brand for their company or service.
If you’ve found out about Ross Murray, you’re a lucky one. Ross is extraordinary in many ways. I found out about him through a business connection over a decade ago, and I worked with him while I was the VP of Marketing in several hi-tech companies. He did a variety of projects over the years. It’s very unusual to find talented creative people who also understand the business side of things. I’ve met many graphic designers primarily interested in winning awards, while clients are most interested in design work that produces results. Not only is Ross is a superb graphic designer and illustrator, he’s also a fine account executive because he listens and clearly understands what clients want. He never missed a deadline while he was located in the Washington, DC area and when we worked with him back in New Zealand. If you’re in the USA, there’s a real benefit of working with him because of the time zone differences. Of all the creative talents I’ve ever worked with, none can compare with Ross Murray for the quality of work and results produced. He is truly exceptional!
When I first talked to Ross at RedSpark Creative about our branding, it started sounding like a high cost and I was nervous about whether I would be happy with the results. I went ahead because RedSpark had been recommended by a trusted business colleague and our existing brand really needed a lot of help. The whole process was very professional and painless and the work was done within the deadlines and budgets. RedSpark provided us with invaluable advice on strategic issues. The results were outstanding and I now see that the value RedSpark has delivered for us is worth WAY more than the actual financial investment. I was absolutely blown away. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend RedSpark Creative to anyone considering a re-brand.
I first worked with Ross as a colleague and since then as a client on a variety of projects. First and foremost, Ross does great creative work. He is an experienced professional who gracefully partners with clients to intimately understand and to compellingly reflect their brands. You couldn’t find a more low key, yet attentive, detailed, committed creative partner. Working with Ross across the miles (between the US & NZ) is just as smooth as when we worked in the same office. Ross is consistently responsive, easy to connect with, and does whatever it takes to come up with finished artwork that exceeds expectations. I recommend him highly and look forward to continuing to work with him.
I've worked with RedSpark Creative on a number of projects, as well as using their services for my own marketing material. On each occasion I've been absolutely thrilled with their great ideas and outstanding design work: Red Spark are meticulous in interpreting briefs and delivering designs that hit the spot each and every time. Best of all, RedSpark's customer service and communications are outstanding: very friendly and very prompt. I regularly recommend RedSpark Creative to my business contacts who are in need of quality graphic design as I know they'll get great service from Ross and the team.
Ross created the logo we use. It is clear, well recognised and liked. In addition to this Ross does our newsletters which look fantastic.
Ross is by far the best creative director I have worked with and I have worked with many. We have worked on a multitude of projects together while I was President of Townsend in San Diego and now as President of Bank2 in Oklahoma City. Ross deeply understands branding concepts and knows how to keep the work on brand from concept to final designs. I am always astonished at the quality of his work and he has an amazing eye for color. He is very fast and delivers on time. He is also very smart, very hard working and a joy to work with.
