To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this as a letter of reference for Kurt A. Hill, Jr. I have had the opportunity to work with Kurt on a variety of creative and graphic design projects, through my association with Holistic Health Practice and CAN-TV, Chicago. The focus of the design projects were for identity and logo design, where I have found his work to be of consistent high quality. 

Kurt has a keen grasp of the strategic needs of projects and is able to translate these needs into a strong creative approach - always backed with a solid rationale. Throughout the creative process, Kurt has been thorough, on time and on target. He is passionate about his creative expression while maintaining a customer focus.

Not to be overlooked is the fact that it is always an enjoyable experience working with Kurt. He is equally interested in people as he is in design. A gifted artist, and able conversationalist - I enthusiastically support Kurt in his work and would choose him for future design challenges.

Most sincerely,

Sara Davenport
