Client Testimonials

Kind words from amazing collaborators.

“Catherine built two websites for us and working with her was a true joy. She is detail-oriented, creative, problem-solving, attentive. She walked us through everything and when unexpected details cropped up, she always brainstormed a workaround. When we first approached her to make our sites, I didn’t know what I didn’t know but Catherine knew the whole way through. Thanks for ably guiding us through, Catherine! We look forward to working with you again.”

“Catherine is a wonderful website designer. She worked patiently and engagingly with our team to address the needs of our organization. As a public library, it is important for us to be excellent stewards of public funds and as a non-profit organization, we are careful with the manner in which we spend them. Catherine was upfront with costs from the beginning and as we went overtime in our need for changes, she was reasonable and efficient. Catherine’s attention to detail and her eye for design made sure our site is both beautiful and user-friendly. We are thrilled with it and would recommend Catherine to any organization with a website change in mind.”

“I loved working with Catherine on the redesign of my website. Catherine is an incredible listener, a practical thinker, professional, patient, flexible, responsive and very well organized. Catherine’s artistic background and creative energy add much value to any project. Catherine intuitively understood my vision and executed everything on my wish list.  I now have a website that turned out better than I could imagine and I love it. She is a joy to work with and I look forward to more collaborative projects.”

“Working with Catherine has been a real blessing! She is the creative force behind our new website. She has a very intuitive way of interpreting my ideas into code that results in a beautiful and functional website.”

“The best decision I made in 2021 was to retain Catherine Toews owner of Tulip Tree Creative to create my Shopify E-commerce website. I was looking for someone who could speak in terms that a senior like myself could understand and a small business like mine could afford. So many web designers are out of reach for a small business but Catherine’s contract was extremely comprehensive and delivered on all levels. Her graphic design skills brought out the very best in my social media posts and stories always on time and on budget. I highly recommend Catherine Toews and Tulip Tree Creative to aid you in moving into the E-Commerce world.”

“I have carried the dream of starting an experimental, small-scale press for awhile. After years of working in academia, I wanted to create an inclusive space for emerging and first-time writers and creatives to disseminate their work. The result is OK Stamp Press, and Catherine at Tulip Tree was invaluable to help make the idea become a reality. Honestly, without her steady encouragement, it would still be a thing I only talk about rather than something I’m running. She immediately understood the ethos of the small press and why it was important, and she took this empathy and care into every step of the design — including the moral support, which really isn’t the typical job of a designer, but Catherine is different. At every consult, she was ready with answers to questions I hadn’t considered, and she gave me great advice (from coding ethics and typefaces to web-hosting) that was aligned with the kind of project I am trying to build. She also was patient with my absent-minded schedule as I continued to build OK Stamp between classes. I really cannot recommend working with Catherine enough. The combination of kind wisdom and savvy design is just wonderful. I’m really grateful.”

“My website is getting rave reviews, thanks to the expert design work of Catherine Toews at Tulip Tree Creative. This was an unbelievably easy and collaborative project: Catherine is a great listener and incorporates into her design ideas what she understands and feels intuitively from her clients. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her creative services to any individual or business!”

Dorry Rice

“Unending thanks to Catherine Toews for my business’ fantastic new logo. For years I had been using something I’d kind of slapped together myself without much thought, but Catherine helped me get on the right track. After we discussed what I wanted out of my logo and the kinds of things I liked, she created a logo that finally reflects my style and needs.” 

Samantha Garner

“Catherine designed our wedding invitations and we were extremely impressed with the process and the results. Very soon after our first meeting she created a stunning design that perfectly captured what we’d talked about. No revisions were needed. We’ve received several compliments on the invitations, and we wouldn’t hesitate to hire Catherine again.”

Jenny Stepa

“In the years since Catherine has been involved with LEAF; first as a volunteer, then board member, finally as Program Director, she has displayed a broad range skill set that transformed our website and social media platforms, organized and managed our festivals and brought thousands of children into the park for unique educational experiences. Her outgoing personality and infectious smile attracted volunteers, calmed and captivated students and inspired the board and staff of LEAF to become active participants in our mission.”
