Leslie Akin of Lake Oswego Graphics is the creative genius who rebranded my entire business logo/business card and website banner.
When I unveiled my cards to my executive development seminar colleagues, they all were gushing about how amazing they looked.
One of the women told me that it looked like I must have spent about a grand to have that type of work done and another commented how much they reflected my total personality.
And, Leslie literally whipped up the design within our first 30 minute meeting while we were gabbing back and forth about everything under the sun. (She is a hoot to boot!).

The response I get about my new "not just a business card, it's a work of art" business cards is FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!
Goddess Of All That Is Creative And Beautiful . . . Henceforth I will call you G-O-A-T-I-C-A-B.
Leslie did a fabulous job in bringing my thoughts to life. I had a dream and a concept and she read my mind and heart and created something truly beautiful.
Just wanted to tell you all of the compliments I've been receiving on my new (business) card :). People love the color scheme and the rounded edges.
Someone I work at my clinic with called me the day after I left the new cards out. Mind you, I never said more than a quick hello to her and a little bio exchange when we first met at a meeting.
She called to tell me she loves the my new business cards and would I be interested in a trade so she can explain what I do to people and refer them to me! Nice start.
I felt like I struck it rich when I met Leslie! You know when you meet someone that is living their purpose and has a passion for life that is contagious? That is how I feel about her. She is so gifted in her profession as a graphic designer, that I trust her with all of my marketing materials. More importantly than that, she makes me feel special. She believes in me, encourages me and really sees me as a person, not just a client. She is number one on my list when it comes to creative, beautiful, AMAZING marketing materials. I refer anyone and everyone I meet to her because I honestly don’t know anyone else that can do what she does. She has an eye into your soul and your message and she is able to pull that out and create it in a tangible way. Thank you Leslie, for being you and for living your passion and purpose. We are all so lucky to be your clients.
I am so loving my cards as does everyone else. I also need to get some more of your cards to pass out.
I just have to tell you what happened after I saw your design work for the first time. I had just ordered 1,000 color cards (same price you were charging) and after seeing your work I tossed them into the garbage can because I just knew I wouldn't be passing out the right card if I kept them.
Your layout and design and card stock was so much better, I asked the person who showed them to me where he got them and placed my order with you the next morning at 8:00 AM.
Having a card of this caliber that jumps out at you and tells a message all at the same time is crucial, for a businessman. I guess I didn't know what high quality really was until I saw your cards! You have a customer for life Leslie, and I know all my business associates feel the same way. Thank you for the outstanding work, Leslie.
Leslie was referred to me by a colleague that I know and trust. He has only reinforced that relationship. Lake Oswego Graphics has improved the visibility of my company tremendously.
Never before has anyone ever noticed my business card other than to say do you have a card. Now they all say wow that’s a neat card. Where did you get this? I have to show this to people. Isn’t that what you want from a business card?
Leslie has helped me to design some other pieces to help promote my business and I know they will see the same results. Run don’t walk to Lake Oswego Graphics to start improving the image of your business.
Clean and Free
The moment I met Leslie her energy and uniquely creative talent produced the most effective business card I have ever used for my business. Leslie is a joy to work with and she delivers what she promises. Lake Oswego Graphics is amazing!

Leslie Ann, thank you so much for helping me create a business card that set me apart. You are so amazing at what you do and I look forward to working with you again.
Leslie Akin is awesome. Don’t expect her work to be another me-too kind of quality. She truly does exceptional work for her clients. Most cards we see are fairly poorly done, and on cheap card stock. Her standard is really high. She’s an artist, and the amount of resources she has at her disposal is amazing.
She really nails it when it comes to knowing what a card is doing and not doing for people and really puts the years of experience to work for her, and the end result is really something.
If you want to stand out, and make an impact, Leslie is the gal to do it. Getting out of mainstream print shop and getting her design is in my opinion one of the best marketing moves you can make.
You are so AWESOME!!! I can't believe how fast you were able to come up with the design and how well it fits me!! I am bowing down to the Grand Master of Design.

What happens when passion meets passion? Creativity blossoms and something new is formed. That's what happened when Leslie with Lake Oswego Graphics began designing a new business card for me.
The new card is over the top with style and class and is receiving rave reviews. If you are looking to enhance your brand and style, Leslie is the gal to call!
Notes of Celebration
I would like you to know that working with you is not only a true pleasure but has also increased our business.
Your attention to detail on our business cards has caused people to really look at our cards and not just put them in their pocket.
The clean professional look has people remembering our business cards which of course has them remembering our business. You are a true asset to our company and we look forward to a long future together. Thank You.

Leslie, I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you a little bit more about the red cards, and what I'm doing with them, and how it's working.
Everybody LOVES them. And I mean LOVES them. As in, they have a strong emotional attachment to them, even. They carry them around with them everywhere they go, just like I instructed them to. They pull them out and look at them. They ADORE them.
Think about that. When was the last time that somebody other than the person you made the cards for actually LOVED the product of your work? When was the last time you made a card that when handed out, people would cherish, and would work hard to make sure they never lose it? That's what happens with those red cards you made for me. Doesn't that just tickle your fancy?
I don't know what I would do without you. Not only are you an extraordinary graphic designer but you know your clients desire to succeed. Your ability to help businesses thrive and profit in tight times is a blessing.
You created business cards that reflect my outgoing personality and that make me proud to hand out. But you are propelling my business to unbelievable heights of success that I dreamed of and knew existed but could not produce myself or with any other so called marketing experts. I wish I could have back every penny I spent on advertising and start from day one with your expertise.
I cannot recommend you highly enough. I try to send every business person I want to succeed to my marketing guru at Lake Oswego Graphics.
