Testimonials

I have had the opportunity to work with LightBox several times now. The organization, creativity and understanding they have had for my campaigns has been second to none. I have been impressed with both how they understand my target audience, but even more so with how they understand and connect with the direction I would like to move towards.

Jeremy Stutsman, Mayor, City of Goshen

Lightbox did an amazing job with our “Master It” series project. I really enjoyed working with them and am very pleased with the deliverables. Thank you for your time and talent!

Sheila Sieradzki, VP Client Empowerment Services, Lacasa

We were in need of long-overdue update of a display for Mennonite Central Committee at Menno-hof. They were professional, responsive, and timely. They didn’t just create what they wanted, but listened to our needs and created a product that reflects the values of MCC. It was a pleasure to work with them.

Eric Kurtz, Executive Director, MCC Great Lakes

I really enjoyed working together with LightBox on my new logo design for my photography brand. He guided me through the process effectively, and with plenty of opportunity to collaborate. Logo has looked amazing everywhere I’ve used it. It gives me a lot of confidence to get my brand in front of people and the results have been solidly positive.

Grant Beachy, Grant Beachy Photo

Their thorough approach to gathering both concrete and intangible information led to a deep understanding of the organization’s vision and values and a new visual identity. This is a talented, insightful and creative team with a great blend of expertise in marketing, design, photography and web development. It was a pleasure to work with them and I highly recommend them.

Leanne Farmwald, Director Of Outreach & Development, Goldenrod

I was blown away! I have worked with other designers in the past but I truly learned the importance of creating a well-built brand right off the bat that will quickly help the customers understand what the identity of your business really is. I will never go back to wanting “just a logo” after working with them!

Yolo Lopez Demarco, Director Of Development, Center For Healing & Hope

LightBox consistently knocks every project out of the park. Amazing design sense, amazing people.
