“I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with the services I contracted Claire to provide. For this multi-phased project, I worked with Claire for roughly three months. During this time I found Claire to be extremely responsive, intuitive, and collaborative. Her team was well organized and stayed on schedule throughout, despite a few changes I made to the scope along the way. She was accommodating, and possibly more importantly, she took the time to really understand my product and what my long-term goals were in order to best develop the project from the ground up and have it ready for future expansion. She kept my budget in mind when offering suggestions and has the appropriate connections to truly be a one-stop shop. Finally, her attention to the finer details is extraordinary. I can’t recommend her highly enough and I will absolutely do business with her in the future.”

“Claire Liston and her team are extraordinary. They have been our partners in developing several client websites and I wouldn’t consider working with anyone else. They are more affordable than many firms, but they are also far better. Claire combines her web expertise with strategic marketing insights and attention to detail, always going the extra mile to deliver a project that is beyond the highest expectations.”

Helen Sullivan, InHouse Communications LLC

“Claire helped me refresh my company’s branding and develop some new marketing materials. It has been a pleasure working with her and her team. They have been extremely professional and completed all the work in a timely manner. She even went the extra mile when I had an issue with the printing company’s final product. The team did extra design work to make sure the job was done right and I was pleased. Recommend highly!”

 “C. Liston Communications delivers us fantastic graphic design—beautiful, thoughtful, and with an understanding of what we are looking for based on only brief conversations. Each year Claire gives us several options for our conference logos and is always willing to tweak the one we like. Some designers were aghast when we have asked to incorporate ideas from one design into another! We hire Claire’s team for their meticulous attention to detail, because they work with short deadlines and deadlines that change, and because Claire asks the right questions and follows up to keep the project moving forward. So easy to work with!”

 “C. Liston Communications does great work for our non-profit organization! Projects are completed on time and Claire and her team go above and beyond to make sure we are satisfied with the final product. Recently they created two banner designs for us including an original graphic. Claire understood our goals and was very responsive to our request. The final products are beautiful and we will use the new designs for years to come.”

 “Claire is one of the best graphic designers I’ve met because, while she has wonderful graphics and design skills, she keeps the best interests of the customers in mind as she consults with them about their business needs. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.”

 “Claire designed a Heart Hero Gallery for us that was beautiful, on-time and a good value, but I was most impressed with how much time she saved me in back-and-forth editing. She had excellent intuition and attention to detail from draft one, and she incorporated my few comments throughout the whole project, making the experience easy and the end-product fantastic.”

 “Hiring C. Liston Communications market services was one of the best management decisions we made for our company. The brochures, newsletters, and posters are beautiful, attractive, and deliver the message we want to pass to our customers. They also go hand-in-hand with our website campaign. Claire is not only a highly intelligent person with incredible marketing design skills; she also takes the time to listen and understand her customer’s needs. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a reliable, upfront, intelligent marketing company, who cares about the product it delivers.”

 “Claire has helped us work with a government client website. She has provided superior service, helping us navigate the shoals of 508-compliance and delivering quick, accurate, and creative turnaround on often unreasonable deadlines and demands. Her sense of humor and professionalism have helped us look good to the client. I highly recommend Claire for web development.”
Helen Mitternight, Vanguard Communications

 “Claire has been an amazing associate for the past 10+ years. Her work is creative, timely and always client-centered. She brings a great passion to her work and it shows.”

“Claire and I worked on a creative marketing concept for my company and I was amazed by her creative quick thinking and to be able to deliver exactly (and more) than which she had promised. I have received many positive comments from my unique postcards and would encourage any company who is looking for fresh new ideas to contact Claire without delay! ”
John Sexton, Author at Irish Author

“We’ve been working with Claire and her team for nearly a decade. They handle everything from web design to corporate image and email for us and have done an amazing job. I can’t imagine experiencing the success we have in these areas without Claire.”

Claire has managed many aspects of marketing for the Vienna Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce. She does an outstanding job with the website, newsletters, and almost all aspects of marketing for the chamber even volunteering her hours on the marketing committee. I would eagerly recommend her to anyone who wants top notch work completed on time and done expertly!”
Joan Fletcher, Leadership Coach

“Claire and her team are a pleasure to work with and their eye for design and attention to detail are excellent. I have had the opportunity to work with Claire on a number of different projects from logo design to annual reports, and the product she delivers is extremely professional and impressive. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for quality design.

“I’ve meet a lot of marketers, website designers, and content generators to know who has their “stuff” together and who doesn’t. Let me tell you that Claire Liston is one of the best in the Alexandria/NOVA area. What I love about Claire is that she truly loves what she does, and because of that her work is truly a craft. Her passion for helping businesses get noticed stems from deep within her, and it’s not just “work” to her. It’s her mission to make sure businesses stand out. What I also appreciate about Claire is she’s always thinking about ways to improve her business. She isn’t an owner that is checked out of her own business. She’s very much hands on, and is willing to go the distance.

If you’re serious about making your business stand out start with Claire and her team.

Matt Stephens, Clarke & Sampson

 “I originally asked Claire to design a logo and website for our firm in 2007. I was extremely pleased with the design proposals for both, which we implemented. I still love our logo! We recently worked with Claire to re-design our web site and to integrate a separate WordPress blog into the site so that viewers have a seamless experience. Once again, I thought that the final results were excellent. We have also asked Claire to develop a marketing brochure for the firm that has a consistent look with the web site and blog, using our logo as well. Again, Claire produced an outstanding product.

Claire has produced outstanding creative work product for us in a timely and cost-effective manner. She is professional, responsive, and easy to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Eric Welter, Welter Law Firm

 “Claire Liston is extremely creative and designs artwork that is incredible. We have worked together on many projects and she pulls together ideas and makes them come to life. If you have an idea of what you want, she asks the right questions to create artwork that is exactly what you intended it to portray. She also designs with print and web in mind so that your designs “pop”. The vendors we send the artwork to for our clients never request revisions. She is wonderful at helping you brand your company. I recommend her highly.”
Karin Collis Arnette, Karin's Custom Images

Claire has been an excellent resource to help our small trade association prepare professional quality newsletters.

 “Claire runs her communications business with a no-nonsense approach. She doesn’t waste time nor will she let you waste your time. She executes and delivers with knowledge and creativity. I am completely satisfied with the web design she did for my company and look forward to working with her on future marketing projects.”

 “It’s such a pleasure working with you and your team! My staff and I are always amazed at your projects’ creativity. It’s easy to see that you listen carefully to your clients and then interpret their thoughts so that their messages get efficiently communicated to their clients. I would and do recommend C. Liston Communications to any of my customers.”
Jay Thomas, Owner, Alphagraphics

 “[Your work] on the illustrations and captions goes beyond mere excellence. Some of them are so well-planned and executed that they appear ready to become stand-alone, successful, free-standing posters… Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is so delightful when a project turns out even better than I could possibly imagine at the beginning.”
John Armor, Author

 “I knew I needed a web site to add credibility to my small business, but I never expected it to bring me so much growth! Claire designed a site that is constantly complimented, and then recreated it as a postcard to hand out at events. I’d recommend her to anyone who wants to solidify and/or improve their image.”

“While I have known Claire for 15 years, it is our most recent work together that caused me to write this recommendation. Our Directory project for the Vienna-Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce was delivered ahead of schedule for a very fair price and it looks beautiful. Our clients LOVE their new directory!”
Jeremy Rusnock, Photographer

 “I hired Claire to help me develop a brand identity for my consulting business. She and her team brought me many quality ideas to consider and her guidance helped me make sound choices throughout the process. I’m thrilled with the results!”

 “C. Liston Communications has helped me with several client websites over the past several years and I wouldn’t work with anyone else. Claire and her team bring so much more to the table than superb web design at an affordable price. Aside from being incredibly service-oriented and delightful to work with, they are thinkers and marketers, so they help guide the process and offer insights from their deep expertise and experience that make all the difference.”
