“I’ve used Mark Wolfe Design for seven years now. I’ve also referred many others to his business. Mark is the go-to guy for graphic design and related services in the Charleston area. Top reason I use MWD: creativity. If I need it to be fresh, edgy, more global in flavor, Mark’s the guy. None of the same old same old, unless that’s what you want. Which brings me to my second reason for using MWD: customer service. Mark works closely with each client, in terms of the creative process as well as immediate responsiveness to customer needs. Mark is at his best when you let him be creative. But, if vanilla is what really makes you happy, he delivers that too, and it’ll be the best vanilla out there.  Mark also is adept at helping his clients with their social media presence, how to use it most effectively, how to integrate it into an overall marketing strategy. You can see his work all over Charleston, from law firms to non-profits to arts organizations and events..  I highly recommend Mark Wolfe Design.”

Most recently, in 2009,  I hired Mark Wolfe to design my company logo. He worked with me to capture the essence of my business and transform that into a logo to help build my brand and company identity.

I highly recommend Mark Wolfe Design as a key marketing partner for anyone’s business.”
