“Cindy Dyer has an eye for a perfect photo and for creative design. She marries these two talents into skilled graphic execution. She keeps
current with magazine and photography trends and displays her knowledge of both in her work. Cindy stretches her creative talents to
match what clients are looking for in the finished product. When you look at her work you can see imagination and creativity,
accompanied with style and discipline.”
— Barbara Kelley, Deputy Executive Director and Editor-in-Chief, Hearing Loss Magazine, Hearing Loss Association of America
"Working with Cindy on the newsletter for my small non-profit association is a real pleasure! As editor, for years I also prepared camera-
ready copy, so it was a relief to have a graphic designer doing the layout when the association went fully electronic with copy. Cindy has a
great eye, so I can say, do a photo spread from this folder of pix to fill two pages, or to fill whatever space we need it to fill, and presto, a
lovely looking layout appears. At first she used an old template for the copy, but when the association decided to update its look, we
trusted her to design our new logo, and then to redesign the newsletter. The results were fantastic! She and I have been working together
for nine years now, and we've become friends as well as professional colleagues. So we have a great time (as good a time as people can
have on deadline, anyhow!) as we go back and forth to produce the final result. Hire Cindy for your graphics needs, you won’t be sorry!”
— Anne McDonald, Editor, AWM Newsletter
“I solicited recommendations for a designer from the ASAE listserv and twelve designers were recommended. Some, like Dyer Design,
were recommended by several association professionals. After a competitive RFP process I chose Dyer Design because of the competitive
price, the firm’s size, and their design approach. Over the years, I have worked with several designers and Cindy Dyer is by far the best!
She listens carefully to my need and ideas, then quickly completes the projects. Her designs are terrific and creative, she has a keen eye
for detail, and she is fast and efficient. Great design makes a difference. We started working with Cindy Dyer about six months ago and her
design contributed to our best conference enrollment ever. A frequent comment at the conference was that the program book was beautiful
and easy to read. New members, experienced participants, board members, and sages in our field complimented me on the program book,
specifically mentioning that moved our organization’s image forward.”
