nice words...

"Doug was great in providing creative insight to my Willie Nelson studio videos. His creative graphic production, editing and final product were exactly what was needed for views. I would highly recommend Doug and will work with him again in the future."

Christine Winburn, Musician

"Doug helped me with the Art for my new album. I spent three years creating the album and had very high standards for the graphic design. Doug listened to what I wanted and added his own creative input for a product I am 100% satisfied with. I requested a few edits to the original design and he was more than happy to accommodate me. If you want to see the art, check out my album "Seasons" on iTunes. Thanks Doug!"
