I had called several designers, but Neil was the only one who took the time to come to our store to get a feel for what the logo should portray. Havers Designs gave us some excellent advice as well as a beautiful logo. We have used Havers Design for all of our artwork and would highly recommend their services.

- Jan Bruce, Owner - Cody & Company

I have worked with Havers Design since the early 80s. I have always found Neil to be extremely creative and easy to work with. Neil has ALWAYS met deadlines, and when I have needed a rush job he has always accommodated, usually providing me the project yesterday. Neil keeps up with changes in his industry and often contacts me with new ideas.

I’ve worked with Neil in many capacities since we met in 1995. From Mount Washington Alpine Resort, to our many great posters for Vancouver Island MusicFest, to creating the shape and identify for Shelter Point Distillery. Neil has been and continues to be rock solid for delivering, understanding, creative and well, friendship.

- Jay Oddleifson, Courtenay, BC

Neil, thanks so much for all your work on the Hornby Denman Tourist Services brochure. Once again, it's been a pleasure working with you. Your technical skill and artistic creativity, as well as your patience in working with our fussiest clients, are so essential to the process of creating our annual brochure. And with your help, it always turns out to be a brochure of which we can all be proud.

- Margie Gang, Hornby Denman Tourist Services, Denman Island, BC

I worked with Havers Design for over a decade as the lead firm for Vancouver Island MusicFest. And what a decade it was! Over that period we collaborated on marketing work back schedules, websites, ads, posters, handbooks, printing projects, stickers, full colour festival programs, t-shirts, signage and much more. We did this during a time of rapidly changing technology, media and marketing trends. Neil's creativity, ingenuity, adaptablity, openness and wicked (and often irreverent) sense of humour is unrivaled. He also has some uncanny "psychic designer' abilities which meant he was more often then not one step ahead of me for deadlines and critical drop dead dates. I highly reccomend you spend some time with this guy, at work or at play.

- Meaghan Cursons
