​❝I’ve had the pleasure of working with Steve on three occasions. I first met him when I was president of TCS Private Jet Expeditions. In collaboration with our marketing team, Steve created an entire new look for TCS trip brochures and other marketing and sales collateral materials. The new design was absolutely brilliant. Nearly everyone on our staff and (more importantly) the vast majority of our customers and reseller partners (both travel agents and affinity travel planners) were so enthusiastic about the new design. Steve proved to be the perfect person for TCS; a great listener, easy to work with and able to translate insights and desires into marketing communications reality. During Steve’s time with TCS, sales increased and the company saw significant gains in its direct and travel agency channels . . . exactly what we set out to accomplish. I’ve also retained Steve twice to create logos and graphic identity packages for my two consulting businesses (Solaia Consulting and Cascadia Marketing). In both instances, Steve again delivered and exceeded my expectations. He’s one of my favorite ‘creatives’ and I highly recommend him.❞

​❝I have worked with Steve for over five years and could not be more enthusiastic in recommending him for any creative advertising, marketing or communications environment. He is an extraordinary creative talent but further, he is a extraordinary person who is positive, fair and hard working. Steve is also very organized, deadline-oriented and a star with each of our associates at Preferred. In addition, Steve and I won the Printing Industry Association of America’s Award of Excellence together for our work on the Preferred Annual Conference campaign, "ReInvent." He will always be a “go-to” person in any creative environment that I am associated with and I look forward to working with him at every opportunity.❞

​❝I’ve hired Steve and Cowart Design over the past 10-years to provide support to a number of our cruise and leisure travel oriented companies, specifically to in the design and development of new marketing concepts, with a focus on tactical retail and new-brand development campaigns. These included ‘point of sale’, full product brochure writing, graphic design, a full range of print collateral items and web site development. Steve is affable and friendly with a calm and professional demeanor. He continually demonstrated to our teams the highest level of professionalism, both as an independent contributor and as an outside project manager who effectively interfaced with senior staff, sales management, and our customers. Steve excels in his ability to bring new design concepts to a project while reacting quickly to time-sensitive schedules and the needs of our hospitality oriented corporate clients. Steve is adept at communicating new and often detailed creative design concepts in clear terms while directing necessary production elements and vendors to execute them.❞
