WHAT PEOPLE SAY...

Karen Lightfoot
Regional Sports Activation Officer
CENTRAL COAST COUNCIL

“Michelle assisted with event coordination on our 3-day event testing the $23.5m Central Coast Regional Sport & Recreation Centre at Tuggerah. Her easygoing manner and attention to detail will provide a level of confidence in anyone who engages her services. From managing budgets to compliance requirements, to building event awareness with social media posts and coordinating food vendors, security and safety - it's a credit to her level of  care and professionalism in keeping projects on track for a range of events.

Michelle's ability to remain focused and calm when things didn't go as planned (which for an event is par for the course), and being able to pivot to consider a different approach was highly valuable to our events success. "

Dr Kam Tara
CEO
URBAN RESEARCH & PLANNING

URaP and URaP/TTW have worked on a numerous technical reports, submissions and documents for transport and traffic management studies for over 14 years with Michelle and her team at Accentia Design.

Early on we recognised Michelle's natural ability to be able to understand and interpret our very uncreative technical ideas and turning them into easy to read, very professionally presented documents and technical reports for our projects.  Some projects required a high of confidentiality and ability to handle complex and restricted information. 

Michelle also coordinated work from other members of our project team, chasing up outstanding items and keeping me updated on outstanding elements that required my attention and approval. Many times I commented that she must have read my mind as I'm continually impressed by the finished graphics work and her ability to quickly get up to speed on complex projects.

Her eye for detail and problem solving ability is a testament to her level of professionalism.  I always found it a pleasure to work with her and have a high level of professional respect for what she brings to our projects.

Alan Rankins
CEO
GOAL GROUP

Goal Group has engaged and worked with Accentia Design for well over 10 years on defence, disposals, training and compliance related projects for our company.

 

Michelle and her team have created conference and marketing material, video and presentation designs to printing and pull up banners for our business to support our seminars and industry related events we're involved in.

She worked with us on projects with AIDN when I was heavily involved in the setup of this network.

A very flexible and dedicated lady to work with. If you have a business that provides services and products for defence related products and services, we can highly recommend using her services.

Over the years Accentia Design created many exhibition catalogues for touring and local exhibitions held at the Gallery. From catalogue design, invitations, signage for the exhibition and ensuring accurate colour reproduction was extremely important to the Gallery's image and respectful to the integrity of the artists work.

I've always found Michelle and her team to be proactive and easy to work with - I like the fact they take think things through and always have our brand at the forefront of their design process – its the little things.  A pleasure to work with and always professional.

Debbie Abraham, Director Lake Macquarie Art Gallery

 We were referred to Michelle at Accentia Design to develop a name and brand for a financial product we were launching.

We were impressed with the research involved behind the ideas that were presented  including a number of options for the business name allowing us to do some testing before making the final decision. This was invaluable and various product naming and visual branding concepts.

Michelle worked with us to deliver a very professional product brand of high quality that we could use to immediately go to market  locally and internationally. We wanted an agency who would actively listen to our needs and keep us regularly updated on the progress of our project. Accentia provided a range of options, and unlike many packaged type creative services, we were able to go beyond the basics with a suite of work that accurately captured our message and was appropriate for multiple uses.

I refer colleagues to Accentia Design that are looking for a level of prestige, care and thoroughness—which is so valuable on the scale of the projects we work on.

Michelle and her team at Accentia Design provided us with design services to create our inaugural Maitland Indie Writers Festival Program. I've received many comments on how easy it was to read and use and we were fortunate to have such talented people come together in the planning of this event. I'd definitely recommend Accentia Designs services for future events and publishing work.
