Jan is a 5-star designer without question. I interviewed a number of different potential designers to build the brand of my new investment firm -- Jan was the first one I spoke with who truly connected with the ideas, feelings and qualities that I was attempting to portray. From that interview through to the end, he was a true partner to me. He would text or call to discuss iterations, he would really listen to my feedback and creatively seek solutions, and he would never get frustrated if something just wasn't quite there (even when I couldn't articulate why). The logo, collateral and digital assets that Jan delivered far exceeded my expectations. I will be going to him for any design needs I have for as long as I am running this company.
It was a pleasure to work with Jan! He was easy to communicate with and was very responsive, completing any requested edits almost immediately. Jan was able to take our loose conception for what we imagined we wanted our publication to look like and turn it into a professional, polished document ready for web and print publication. He went above and beyond his scope of work by suggesting a few changes and edits that I had missed in my own review, and I really appreciated him being a second set of eyes. We are very happy with Jan's final product and will certainly reach out to him with any future design needs.

Jan Halili is EXCEPTIONAL! He's the ONE you're looking for! His work is on par with the top design agencies and without all the overhead costs. He exceeded my best expectations and delivered a world-class design experience paired with an AMAZING brand for my new business venture. I work at a Fortune 100 company and know Digital Product Development - what I appreciate most about Jan is how he operated like a Creative Design Partner. He always expressed genuine interest in knowing me, my vision, and what I was trying to communicate in my brand (logo, word-mark, & slogan). He was timely in communication, so easy to work with, and iteratively brought my brand to life through efficient and effective design rounds, allowing me to shape his creative direction while leaning on his extensive experience and knowledge of contemporary design. I can't say enough positive things about my experience.
Jan was AWESOME!!! This was our first time working with an artist to bring our vision to life. He did his homework before coming to the first meeting and had some great ideas that really blew us away. Jan had the job done fairly quickly and left time for us to give last minute suggestions. We will be using Jan again on future projects.

Jan is a phenomenal designer. He offered creative solutions for a difficult patient infographic and insert for a new book.

Jan was brilliant from his first communication, he addressed all my concerns in his cover letter. He took my initial instructions and delivered exactly what I asked for. Jan was attentive to the details and the quality of his work was fantastic.

Jan's attention to detail and willingness to openly communicate with us throughout all phases of the work truly sets him apart from everyone else – definitely leaps and bounds above the rest.

Jan was excellent to work with! Extremely clear communication and brilliant execution of design. He was very flexible as our project changed somewhat part way through our contract and he rolled with it. Will definitely be hiring Jan again for future projects!

Jan was terrific to work with. He has a great ability to translate thoughts into reality. He is also extremely responsive and genuinely cares about his craft. It was a pleasure to follow Jan through his process. I strongly recommend him for logo, icon, and slogan development.
