Studio 101 West Marketing & Design is the winner of the 2014 Graphic Design USA Americian Packaging Design Award for the Xblock BasiX packaging!
Deborah, The packaging is over the top fabulous— it is the slickest thing and everyone is just blown away with it. THEY LOVE IT! It has re-invented the entire X-Blocks company. I'll fill you in on details when I get back—we'll have LOTS of new things to be working on can't thank you enough (and Dennis and Molly). – Patricia, X-Blocks
Its easy to have problems, but harder to have solutions. Deborah Swanson always provides a solution for me that is both elegant and appropriate to my need. She has done my websites over the last 10+ years and each one is beautiful and extremely functional. Rave about Deborah — you bet! Great Designer. Great at making my business shine.

Dear Deborah, On behalf of our entire organization I want to thank you for the superb job you did on our Annual Report. I don't know how you always manage to do it, but you once again outdid yourself. This project has by far exceeded all desired outcomes. Lee and I both have received nothing but positive comments. People can't believe what a beautiful, yet simple piece the annual report is. As a matter-of-fact, one of my counterparts is jealous that I am able to produce something that people will actually read (To me that is the greatest compliment!). You are a great team at Studio 101 West. - Michelle Robles, Private Industry Council
Dennis, In an effort to excel in driving a focus for work performance, we deemed it necessary to advertise to our facility in a new and creative way. Historically, we used common technical terms and site pictures. This time we felt is was necessary to go outside the box and this is where Studio 101 came into play. In a record time, less than 2 weeks we compiled 5 slogans, screened hundreds of pictures, reduced our listing to five key photos, reviewed and revised the original drafts, and well, Studio 101 West did the rest! Multiple posters were created with the key formats, and it was amazing the comments and interest that were generated. The design and photography were so inspiring that many commented like: "The art work was refreshing." "The posters and messages caught my eye for the first time in a long time." "The picture really drove home the message." Thanks for making the change, it does make a difference! Thank you Dennis and Deborah. - Jim Ramirez, PG&E
I received the photos you created for our corporate advertising and wanted to let you know they are fantastic. - Sarah K., Avefuel Corporation
WOW, I just received the CD of the images from the Geranium Shoot. They are beautiful and will make our catalogue stand above the crowd. Thank you so much. - Kathy W. Oglevee Ltd.
Dear Dennis and Deborah, Thank you for helping us with our capabilities brochure. The heartbeat of this piece was very much born of your visions. The photography that Dennis created for us is stunning. Thank you both for your personal investment in this brochure. - David Wilson, V3 Printing
I have been pleased with Studio 101 West's quality of work and the speed getting proofs and projects done on time. I have worked with them closely on many photo and video projects since 1994 and have always been pleased with their quality of work and his "easy to get along with" professional personality. This has made jobs easier and more relaxed. I highly recommend Studio 101 West for any type of job whether it be print, photo or video. They get the job done right the first time! - Dave Carpenter, Marketing Media Manager, DEL Ozone
