    We just launched our new community website, and we are very pleased with the results. We were seeking a fresh, intuitive site when we found Andrew. During the preparation, Andrew brought keen insight of what can and should be done to have an effective website. He helped us every step of the way in his low key, savvy way I recommend Andrew for anyone who is just starting out on a new website or seeking a website refresh.

    I’ve been working with Vanguard Ideation for more than a year now. Yes they are talented, yes they are capable, but more than anything they are good people and their entire reason for being is to create great work that you can be proud to call your own.

    Andrew has a keen eye for design while keeping in mind brand cohesion. He has helped my company, Sprelly, develop in a short time from just an idea that was pitched at a local business competition to an instantly recognizable regional brand. Along the way, he has implemented numerous helpful tips and tricks for a continued marketing campaign while teaching me a thing or two about the graphic design world. Andrew’s work is excellent.

    Working with Vanguard on Startup Weekend Fredericksburg made my life easier as the lead organizer. I was able to entrust Vanguard with any design decision related to social media, marketing, and website design. The quality of their work was impeccable and they could have not responded fast to request for additional materials. We plan on using Vanguard again for our next event.

    Working with Vanguard was great! They helped build the public image for a technology start-up. Branding was essential since we were starting from scratch. Their UI and UX designs gave our product the cutting edge it needed to stand out from competitors.

    When I look at WishStars – on my phone, tablet, and desktop – what I see is the vision I carried with me in my head brought into view for the world to use by the creative passion and technical skill of Andrew and Luis. And it is more beautiful than I could ever have built – or imagined – alone. With only the benefit of a couple of hours of direction and input, Andrew and Luis crafted a design for WishStars that is as captivating as it is easy to use.

    Starting my business, I knew that my logo and website would be my business’ first impression to my potential customers. I knew the look and feel I wanted but needed someone to be able to create it for me. Vanguard Ideation was able to create a comprehensive branding package for me that has made my store recognizable in our community.
