Kim Seeling Smith


“I met Robert when I wrote my first book. I needed a designer and had no idea where to turn. Robert and I worked really well together on that project. He clearly got the visuals for what I wanted to portray through my words. Since then (2014) I’ve used Robert to help me with two website redesigns, training manuals and marketing materials. I can highly recommend his work and now value him as a friend as well.”

His work is characterized by accuracy, expert execution, and inventiveness.”
