“I've been organizing events for over 30 years and have worked with dozens of talented graphic designers.
Wendy Hoag, by far, is the best! She is grace under pressure, meets tight deadlines and produces superior designs and marketing materials.

"My name is Madison and you worked with my now fiance (oh my goodness!!!) and his family on the most magical proposal in the world and I just wanted to email you to thank you so incredibly much for all your hard work in designing those pictures. They were the most beautiful pictures and they truly captured the essence of our relationship. I cannot imagine them being any more perfect and I am so excited to hang them up in my new apartment to always remember our special day with my love."
“I have been working with Wendy for years on a variety of projects and clients and have consistently been happy with the results. She's one of those vendors you can always rely on to get the job done well and on time. She is a pleasure to work with, both from a business standpoint and has a great, flexible personality, working well under pressure and meeting multiple deadlines. I have also recommended Wendy many times to colleagues, many of which use her services to this day. She's a great asset to any creative team.”

“Wendy's magical creative is more than just delightful layouts, logos and design; it's the end product of thoughtful, strategic creative thinking—rendered by one of the most inspiring collaborators I've ever worked with.”

“Wendy is one of the most creative designers I have ever worked with, but what sets her apart from other professionals in her field is how she 'builds marketability' into the concepts she creates for her clients. A beautiful design is necessary, but if it doesn't excite the marketplace and encourage readers/viewers to act on the part of the respective client, it is not of much value. To accomplish this end result, prior to delving into a design approach, Wendy does infinite research on each situation or product to assure she fully understands what is required graphically to have a positive impact on the client's bottom line. She also knows full well that graphics and copy must function as one unit, and timeliness is of equal importance. I would readily recommend that any individual, company, or organization, requiring design effort for any size endeavor, use Wendy's company Hoag Design, Inc., as their graphic design provider.”
