"To all future sidekick clients,Recently we entrusted sidekick with a very important job to design the corporate logo for the Arthur Beetson foundation. Not only did their finished product encapsulate exactly what we required in order to assimilate with the brand of the foundation, but the works were completed quickly and within our very modest budget. Thank you sidekick! Cheers"Justin Karcher Arthur Beetson Foundation
"Starting a small business is exciting and daunting task for a busy mother of two and I didn’t have time to create my on business card and logo. Sidekick provided me with exactly what I needed to make my dreams a reality. The process was so simple I had one phone call briefly explaining what my business was, who I wanted to target and I had specific ideas on what I wanted to include. The following communication was all done via email which allowed me to see the business card and logo’s at every step of the way to make any adjustments. I found Sidekick very helpful and nothing was too much trouble so thanks again for making Little Stitches such a success."Rebecca Eakins,

Work was completed ahead of schedule and there were regular updates on progress. Any queries were quickly answered and implemented. The site itself is easy to navigate and the training videos made our input a breeze. I love that you have taught us how we can easily edit, add and change the website whenever we wish.After being royally ripped off by the so call marketing gurus in our fair city, I can say the cost was super cheap in comparison.
