“Elena is a pleasure to work with. We were first drawn to Elena's work through her 'Inukshuk' branding for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Elena helped us through a successful branding process for our landscape architectural business. Not only were her solutions creative and artistically inspired, Elena's approach was very thoughtful and considerate of our needs. Elena helped us see our firm through our client's eyes which was very helpful. The final results of her work are much more than just a pretty logo. We now have a company philosophy, a good understanding of our value proposition, and a full set of graphic standards to accompany our web page that we are very proud to share with our clients. I would recommend Elena to anyone in need of a graphic artist or a branding expert.”

“5 years after opening our new health centre, we felt that the branding we originally went with no longer represented us. Elena from Rivera Design sat down with us on numerous occasions to first determine our core values and identity, then what direction we wanted to go in the future, and even helped us to put together a questionnaire for our clientele to provide valuable feedback. With all this, she began to chart a course on our new look and brand, and she was very patient in going through numerous drafts and versions before arriving at the right colours and imagery. We did a full package of rebranding, website look, signage, posters, stationery, and uniforms. Rivera Design was an irreplaceable partner in helping Elign Health Centre arrive at the right products from the right suppliers, and we would recommend their services to any business wanting to look professional and get ahead of their competition, all at a reasonable cost. Thank you Elena and Rivera Design for your great work! My clients love our new look, we have had an upsurge in online referrals.The brand now more closely matches our business model and facility so it has had a positive effect on staff and our overall reputation.”

“A couple of years ago we underwent a major rebranding for our company. We interviewed a number of potential brand design professionals and we choose Elena MacGregor because we were able to connect on a very personal level. She was an excellent listener, made our entire team feel like they were part of the process and delivered outstanding branding options for us to choose from. The feedback we have received on our new designs has been outstanding. We are proud of the growing body of beautiful branding pieces we are able to pull together to tell our story. We would recommend Elena in heartbeat and continue to utilize her services.”

“An outstanding brand requires a commitment to go deep; to build a strategy and get into the mindset of one’s own customers who really know the truth about what you offer. Elena extracted very specific information from my clients that was directly applied to the revamping of my brand. Her in-depth competitive analysis was key to creating my own, unique brand identity. Due to Elena’s depth of experience, wisdom and special gift of understanding my needs and objectives, I knew that her company and brilliant creative skills were the perfect answer to my branding dilemma. She is intuitive and will tell you exactly what you need to hear. Elena knows that the market place will continue to evolve and will work with you to ensure your brand is relevant and desirable. If you are ready to listen and commit to her ideas, you will achieve the results you want and a brand that you are proud of. My clients like the website and they "get" the core message.”
