PROFESSIONAL + PERSONABLE

"We have worked with Steve on several projects for our businesses, the latest one was a project where we wanted to rebrand one of our software products. In doing this, Steve really made an effort to get to know our business processes and the way that we operated so that he could achieve our design goals and project outcomes. His response was always prompt and flexible to our needs, adapting and producing quality work without compromise. We have always found Steve to be both professional and personable in his approach. There is no doubt we will continue to use his services in the future and have no hesitation in recommending his services to other businesses."

Applying that across the board from letterheads, corporate folders, promotional materials and our website design. We would thoroughly recommend Parashis Creative for any branding and design work. It is evident that he has the experience and the knowledge to get the job done.”

master craftsman

I've seen Steven take wishy-washy verbal concepts from clients, and transform them into attention grabbing, visual reality. He truly is a master craftsman of the digital age. I'm happy to endorse and recommend Steven Parashis.

ARTHUR ECONOMIDES - Marketing & Communications at SUSA

BUSINESS OF DESIGN

Having worked with Steven under many different circumstances and on a diverse range of projects, I have always enjoyed his approach to the business of being creative.
He is a well-educated professional visual communicator who is able to sensibly brand a message in a creative or unique way that suits an existing framework, or he can develop a branding package in its entirety from scratch, allowing an entire suite of materials to be created from his art direction and original concepts.
Steve is very reliable and posesses a great understanding of many different mediums and production techniques giving him an edge in the business of design over creative professionals who may be less experienced.
He's pretty easy to get along with too!

Capable + multi-skilled
