Our Rave Reviews

I commissioned Carla to provide an enlarged portrait sketch from an old, grainy photograph. All coordination had to be done via email as we were located in different cities. She promptly responded to my questions and performed the work faster than I expected for a very reasonable price. She is a talented artist. Carla did a wonderful job and I would gladly recommend her services.

Carla designed a logo for my company. She was very professional, punctual and easy to work with. Through the process, she was very good about following up and the end product is something I am very happy with. I would recommend Carla to anyone looking for graphic design and illustration expertise!

Carla created storyboards for my screenplay, Ishmael’s Son, and she did an outstanding job. She is creative, punctual, and most of all artistic. Working from the script, Carla chose screen shots, angles, and developed distinct characters. I would use her again and we are currently discussing terms for a graphic novel.

I commissioned Carla to create a logo for my new business. Her art captured the theme of my enterprise perfectly, and I’ve gotten ‘rave’ reviews on my business cards!
I have freelanced worked with Carla a couple times this year and each time has been fantastic. Meeting every deadline in a timely manner even going beyond and above to reach customer satisfaction. Having Carla for the rolls she played has been nothing but a learning experience and a great look to what’s to come from her future.

My website had everything I needed except for one thing. A logo. I heard about Carla through a friend as I was desperate for anything and had nothing but bad ideas on what the logo could look like. After explaining my situation to Carla, less than one day later my dream logo was created that I could have never imagined. Not only is it a logo I am proud to look at everyday, but a logo that makes me want to come back even more as well as my fan base. I had Carla do some drawings based off of the main logo site, and it added so much more life to the brand than I could have ever imaged. If you want a reliable, amazing quick turn around, stunning art, you would be crazy to look anywhere else. This company gets the job done and leaves you wanting more. Thanks again for the amazing BEAST!

It was always a pleasure to work with Carla. She has an inquisitive nature and is eager to learn and absorb all that she can. When tasked with projects and responsibilities of her own, her attention to procedure and documentation of detail were attributes that were rare and unique. Carla has an incredible amount of potential that will benefit her and the projects/companies she progresses to from here on out.

I hired Carla to create a logo for my business and to design a business card that leveraged that logo. She provided much food for thought along the way, was timely and responsive to my needs and input, and ultimately we arrived at a logo and business card design that I am super happy with. Thanks Carla and good luck!

Cranial Island keeps the many steps in the animation process manageable and moving. The final product always meets or exceeds our client’s expectations. More than anything, we appreciate the creativity they bring to the table from concept, to graphics, to troubleshooting and beyond. Any agency would benefit from having the Cranial Island team as part of their projects.

Awesome people to work with, very professional and talented artists. They work to understand your vision, then work harder to develop the animation you want. Highly recommend Cranial Island for any animation needs. Great pricing, and great value. Thank you guys.
