At National Institute for Alcohol Recovery, we have engaged various graphic design firms nationwide for the educational portion of our programs. S2 Design Lab is by far one of the best we have ever worked with throughout the years. They are seasoned professionals and have a keen sense of capturing the very unspoken image the client needs to project. They are always on target and timely and their creativity translates to immediate sales. For anyone looking for a full service design firm, I highly recommend that you first give Mr. Don Summers at S2 Design Lab a try for he will become a benchmark by which others need to perform. Kamran Loghman M.A., MCTC Executive Director National Institute For Alcohol Recovery 301-330-5809

If you’re considering working with Don Summers and his firm, S2 Design Lab, I can help you with your decision making process. As one of the most dependable groups that I have ever worked with, this talented design guru and his graphic gang have not only solved many of my creative problems, they’ve helped me think through ideas, solve complex production issues, and meet challenging deadlines without the loss of hair or valuable dollars. Every job that I’ve given them (and many were on short notice) has been beautifully designed and executed as well as on time, on-target and within my budget requirements. I have known and worked with Don for over ten years now and handed him many assignments that have required his big picture thinking and overall ability to grasp ideas and concepts – he has consistently turned those visions into products that totally satisfied the needs of a wide range and diverse group of clients. The way he approaches and solves problems is always with an attitude that conveys his belief in the power of true collaboration. Needless to say, it continues to be a pleasure to know and work with him. Frankly, I sincerely hope that you don’t pass up the opportunity. Pamela Zacha Director of Marketing Nemea Security Services, LLC 703-584-7700

Working with S2 Design Lab has been one of the highlights of my job as the editor of a government newsletter. The ingenious design of Don and his team injected life into our bureaucratic publication, giving birth to a much more contemporary and dynamic newsletter that has drawn considerable praise from our diverse readership and staff. I’m amazed how S2 Design Lab can take a single thought—even a sputtering idea from my brainstorming session—and maximize it into a dazzling product! After searching through the portfolios of more than 70 potential designers for our newsletter— and considering the creativity, quality service, competitive price and personal touch that Don and his team offers—I can say hands down that S2 Design Lab’s work is unparalleled. Nicole Ashby Editor U.S. Department of Education 202-260-1441

I have known and worked with Don Summers and S2 Design for over 8 years. Having been in marketing for 18 years and now an entrepreneur, I’ve had experienced my share of designers, but no one can compare with S2 Design’s capabilities, professionalism and ethics. They will sit with you and truly take the time to understand what you are looking for. Our latest project, a high-tech web site, had to be done integrating videos, vendors pages, downloads and more - all within a tight deadline. They worked diligently, day and night, to make my deadline and delivered an awesome state-ofthe-art web site. From simple invitations to major web sites and video, they give their all in implementing into your design the latest graphic designs techniques that will make it a success! And they do not stop until you are completely satisfied! I recommend Don Summers and his team without reservation. Liamar Young President TNL Enterprises, Inc. 410-810-1755

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and S2 for the outstanding job you have done on redesigning Cini-Little’s website. We have received numerous emails from our clients and potential clients telling us how great our redesigned website looks thank you. Whatever concerns I had regarding the size of your firm were quickly diminished once the project started, I have never worked with a more responsive graphic/web design company in my entire career. I am eager to start on the next phase of our website build-out and am hopeful to involve S2 in other projects in the future. Kathleen M. Held Director of Marketing & Business Development Cini-Little International, Inc.
