Our experience with Buffie was such a pleasure during the whole process. She was able to really listen to our needs and set out on a plan. She devised 3 great choices for our logo and website. Her due dates were all on time. We are completely satisfied and happy with the results. And it really was a fun process to boot. Her calmness and experience, created a trust between the three of us that was evident from the first day we met. So yes, 100% I recommend Buffie. I would do it all over again with her in heartbeat!

Thank you very much for your work on the logo. You've done a great job of capturing what I was trying to explain in words..As additional feedback, your talent and "spirituality" shine through your work. Hard to describe, but there is a "calmness" beating beneath the surface...very... comforting.

Design Orbit did more than produce a beautiful, meaningful website for my company. They created a business identity for me that is now recognizable in the community. Buffie Harris is a true business partner, able to respond with new and creative ideas as my business grows and evolves.
Just by looking at the the unique designs Buffie has created for a wide range of clients, it is easy to see what a gifted and talented graphic artist she is. Professionally speaking, Buffie is a joy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and always delivers above and beyond what she promises. But let me tell you about the person behind Design Orbit, because her personal touch is truly what I feel helped to make my business a success.
When I first started working with Buffie, I came with what felt to me, an overwhelming amount of design ideas and business needs. From her vantage point however, she viewed this as multiple opportunities to pull forth the heart of my business. And this is exactly what she did. Buffie had this uncanny gift of listening for the "voice" of my business and then building innovative design concepts around it. She is truly an advocate for what will help her client's business to thrive.
I've had the honor to work with Buffie on and off for the past six years. In that time, the direction of my business has evolved; yet Buffie has been able to use her expertise to help blend the old with the new. The genuine care and attention that she gave to my logo and web design six years ago was so well thought out that they have stood the test of time and grown right along with the evolution of my business.
Thank you Buffie. I am so grateful for all your insights and dedicated efforts. You are a gifted and talented professional with amazing personal flair.

Design Orbit has been the "light" that we needed to spearhead our marketing efforts for Ceres Fruit Juices in North America. Nothing is too much trouble and the work is always performed on time.

Working with Design Orbit has been a tremendous pleasure. Buffie asked me thoughtful questions about the nature of my shiatsu practice and what I wanted to convey with my logo. And the resulting logo is fantastic! It captures the essence and heart of what I do.
The response from friends and clients to my new logo is overwhelmingly positive. When I used it in my e-newsletter for the first time, 5% more people opened my newsletter than ever before. Several recipients emailed back and said, “Your practice is going really well—I love the graphic design!” The magic of a good logo is immediately evident when working with Design Orbit.

Buffie - I wanted to thank you for your patience willingness and creativity. I was so hesitant to join the computer age. I love my web site, you certainly took it to a level i could not have imagined. Working with you has been fun and easy and I greatly appreciate your efficiency. Thank you for gently bringing me out of the dark age.
Buffie is patient, talented and superlative in her areas of expertise with her business Design Orbit. She is inherently an artist and it comes through loud and clear in her work. She has an incredible eye for color and balance, superlative technical skill and a lovely, gentle demeanor. She completed the requested work in a timely manner and her prices are very fair. I am thrilled with the new look of my site and it's increased visibility. My visits statistics are already on the rise I highly recommend Design Orbit as I am 100% satisfied with all.

Buffie, Your universe of thought based on the principles of Feng Shei, Numerology, Sacred Geometry and Sacred Symbols blows my mind. It's an amazingly powerful paradigm and I'm stoked to be aligned with a designer who can put these principles to work. I have goose bumps.
I wanted to let you know how very well your logo design was received today at Millennium Laboratories. I unveiled our new branding for the employees this morning and continue to receive great feedback on the logo design and colors.
As a true testimonial, our Laboratory Director, has a few degrees in the hard sciences (i.e. organic chemistry and the like) and constantly reminds me he knows nothing about marketing or what makes things sell. In a side meeting with our CEO today, he expressly complimented your logo and went on and on about the colors and design.
I found this to be the true test of a good logo – even the scientists like it! Congratulations on an excellent job for Millennium Laboratories. We are a very happy customer and will continue to recommend your talents. Thank you for pulling such great work off for me under very, very tight deadlines.
VP of Marketing,
I would highly recommend Buffie at Design Orbit for logo creation and web site set up work. Her keen eye for design and color has helped to create the best logo I could have ever hoped for and her web site design services have gotten me off to a great start. I have received lots of positive comments about my web site and the owl logo. Thanks Buffie. . . .
The concept I had for my web site involved juxtaposing old photographs from my grandfather’s business with contemporary ones of my building projects. The purpose was to create a sense of my being grounded in solid tradition while providing 21st century approaches for my current clients. You were the ideal person to work with because you listened carefully to my ideas and found ways to creatively turn my raw material of old and new pictures and text into an artistic and inviting presentation for the web site. You guided me through the technical issues with ease, making suggestions along the way that further enhanced the final product. Your work consistently exceeded my expectations. I will enthusiastically recommend you as being both a fine professional and a remarkable person.

First, it was a pleasure working with Buffie, as aside from her being a great graphic artist, she is a wonderful human being. I worked closely with her in designing a book cover for my latest book and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Her ideas and suggestions were great and she skillfully lead me from a place of uncertainty and confusion about what I wanted to a cover design that I was completely happy with. It was a great experience from start to finish and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a superb, and professional, graphic artist.
Tom McGuire, Author
Buffie is smart, creative, helpful and flexible. She perseveres to get my web site looking the way I envisioned. Plus, she's able to offer advice on options. Buffie has sparks of innovation that are unhampered by practicality that create other sparks and, in turn, produce a superior product. I am very pleased with not only the product that she helped to create but the process we used as well: deliberate, well reasoned, respectful.
Great Results, High Integrity, Creative
We came to Buffie Harris during a challenging time with our web site, and we needed a great deal of work done very quickly. Buffie dealt with everything we asked of her with patience, good humor, and a steady approach that has served our site well. We have been very pleased with Buffie's reasonable rates, her ability to respond quickly, and most importantly, her ability to truly listen to, and understand, her clients needs. Communicating our vision -- and having Buffie interpret and execute that vision -- has led to a web site of which we can feel proud. Buffie is an exceptional person, a skilled web site, logo and graphic designer, and a pleasure to work with. We recommend Buffie Harris Dunn and Design Orbit without hesitation to anyone needing assistance with creating, repairing and/or maintaining a web site.

It is my privilege to compliment on the services I have received from Design Orbit. Buffie offers nothing but top-notched assistance and expertise all the way. She is totally dedicated, creative and a resourceful professional. Buffie has the ability to give you the confidence that an idea will present itself, all you have to do is turn it over to her. Buffie has surpassed my expectations, as I know she will with yours. Thank you Buffie
I loved my logo design as soon as I saw it, and then when I read the descriptions of the concepts, it blew me away...so perfect! You are so talented! I highly recommend you as you so came so highly recommended to me. I think that your work is exceptional. Your questions are so helpful and you clearly work from a highly inspired, intuitive, talented place. Thank you so much!!!
For several months we sought a person to develop a quality logo and design a web site built around it. There were companies and individuals who looked and sounded great, but who just could not deliver the goods. That all changed when we found Design Orbit in the Yellow Pages. Buffie has done a phenomenal job in all aspects of the work we needed ––not only did she create a effective and beautiful site, but she was patiently there every step of the way.

I needed to attract customers at first glance. You combined your knowledge of graphic arts and web design to create a rich, inviting, engaging, and winning web site. Within one week of posting and submitting my site with indexes and search engines, I was already reaching my target market. The response was amazing. I am extremely pleased with my results. Working with Design Orbit is a delight! You are extremely professional and intuitive to my business needs.

I wanted to create a quick-read newsletter for my business and by sheer luck Buffie Harris was referred to me by a friend. From the moment we met I just knew that she would be able to help me with the creative aspects of the project. I immediately felt confident and at ease in the knowledge that I had someone who had listened to my needs. She came back to me in record time with exactly the right feel and professionalism that I wanted to convey. Buffie was spot-on in her assessment of my communication strategies and I would recommend her to anyone also wanting to create a professional marketing and communications tool. Ken Hermer, President

Even though it is simple, our web site is serving its intended purpose. It was really just a vehicle for email advertisements. No more spending hundreds of dollars on mailers. It has been great, thanks!
