Dewdropstudios has done an AMAZING job for us at Jump Dragon Media. Velvette worked with us to get our company’s identity out of chaos and into something that I can be proud of, and that will last us through the years to come. I couldn’t be happier.

Allen Atha, Owner

As a new organization, we had some thoughts for our logo, but we had never designed anything. Velvette has an exceptional ability to transform that vision and bring forward beautiful design ideas. The work was always done in a timely manner and effectively captured our vision. We are simply thrilled with the end result.

I came to Dewdropstudios for an identity system for my new business, and I was not disappointed. The process was painless—the right questions were asked so that the final design fit the needs of Saving Grace Events. The design work is gorgeous, straight-forward, and delivered on time, as promised.
Regina Roberts, Owner

Velvette’s perfect blend of innovation, environmental consciousness, honesty, and attention to detail, have made my experience with her simply a pleasure. An integral part of my success in starting my own business is due to Velvette’s innovative marking ideas and design. I will continue working with Velvette for all my design and marketing needs in the future.
Matt D’Amour, Founder

It’s my deep and true pleasure to highly recommend Velvette De Laney. Velvette and I have worked on projects over the last four years. She has become one of my most trusted design allies. I put my brand in her hands confidently on a regular basis and I trust her with it. She’s considerate, she’s well thought-out, she always brings ideas to the table that I never could’ve thought of. I highly recommend her and I know you’re going to have a great time working with her too.
