“I’ve worked with Patrick and Holly on book design and production projects, large and small, and find them to be creative, focused, detail-oriented, deadline-conscious and easy to work with. They care as much about the quality of our books and meeting our budgets and deadlines as we do.” —­ J ANE MUSSER  SENIOR DIRECTOR OF PRODUCTION, AVALON TRAVEL AND SEAL PRESS

“Patrick and Holly are a designer dream team. Creative, flexible, reliable — no design job is too ambitious to tackle, or too small to require their careful attention. In the often chaotic world of publishing, it’s comforting to know that I can always count on them to come through.” —­ ROXANNA ALIAGA  SENIOR EDITOR, COUNTERPOINT PRESS
