“My old logo (designed by someone else) was never “it” for me. Then I decided to re-brand, and started working with yet another person to develop a new one. Three rounds later, it just wasn’t the right style to make me happy, so I went searching online. And found Kelli Swan! I could see right away that her style had the feeling I had been looking for. Then, what REALLY impressed me, was how well (and how fast) Kelli was able to offer truly exciting ideas for designs, get the concept narrowed down to “the one”, and then make it JUST RIGHT with a few more small tweaks. The whole process was easy (for me) and quickly evolved to my now having the first logo I’ve ever been excited about. Thank you, Kelli!”
“I love working with kelli. Her artwork is so beautiful, and she has so many great ideas! Easy to work with, and so helpful. She is prompt and professional and with a soft side that makes her an absolute pleasure. I will recommend her to everyone!”
- Francisca M. Matthews, Equine Bodywork since 1991

“I contacted Kelli after seeing some of her artwork that turned up in a Google search on the Internet. There was one particular drawing that caught my eye and I asked her if she could do something similar for a logo for our Virginia winery. I am very particular and hard to please. Very few people fulfill my expatiations. Kelli surpassed them. I had a vague idea of what I was looking for in a logo but no specifics. In our initial conversation I am sure I told her more about what I didn’t want as opposed to what I was looking for. She took my nebulous vision and gave me several suggestions. Within a few days, she sent me her first batch of proofs. There were about twelve and there was not a single one that I didn’t like. Kelli designed logos that I could never have imagined. Even if I had artistic ability and could draw a logo, I could not have thought of these designs. The hardest part was choosing among her designs. We narrowed it down to two and told Kelli what we liked about both. She took the elements that we like and combined them into a single perfect logo. Again, this is something that we could have never envisioned on our own. Kelli then went beyond drawing the perfect logo. She even worked to reformat our chosen text font to perfectly complement our logo. The attention to detail was something that I rarely encounter. After choosing our primary logo and text, I spoke with Kelli about acquiring rights to use one of her other designs. After all, they were that hard to choose among. In addition to our “official” logo, we chose to purchase one of her other proposed designs. This design is a variation of our chosen logo and will blend perfectly in our promotional and marketing campaign. In short, I did my research and knew what I was going to spend on a custom logo. What I didn’t know was that I was going to be fortunate enough to work with someone like Kelli. She was very attentive and responsive. There was never a time in the process that I was left wondering what was going on. This is the first recommendation that I have felt compelled to write in my forty years of doing business. I simply cannot recommend Kelli highly enough.”

“We can’t even begin to tell you how pleased we are with the product and the service we received from Kelli and Cygnet! Our new logo is simple and elegant and we’ve already received many, many compliments on it. We found Cygnet on the Internet and didn’t know what to expect when we first contacted them. We were amazed and delighted by the quick response to our initial inquiry. We were further impressed with their responsiveness during the design phase and the speed with which the final product was ready. We will use this company in the future and recommend them to others.”
- Nancy Baumgardner, President, Southwest Animal Resue Fund, Inc.
“Words just can’t express how pleased John and I are with this entire process and with the results. Thank you so much for designing a logo that looks totally custom at a fraction of the price! You have been so wonderful to work with too, and so fast! John and I will be spreading the word far and wide about your great talent and services!”
“Working with Kelli to develop my business logo was a pleasure from the start of the process. She listens and executes quickly and with a lot of thought to provide great options. The process was exciting because Kelli offered enthusiasm in addition to an artist’s eye in developing a logo until I was completely satisfied with every detail. Thanks Kelli for your professionalism on my project!” [UPDATE 3-31-14: “I’m still entirely proud of my logo after 3 years. Slowly but surely my brand is growing. You really hit a home run capturing the energy and essence of my business. Thanks again for your prompt professional service!”
“Kelli Swan was a dream to work with. I contacted her in crisis mode from the other side of the globe, desperately needing help with our group’s newsletter. Kelli was super-fast in responding to my email, and she immediately put aside other work to assist me. More than this, she worked long hours over two days to perfect the newsletter as an email in Constant Contact. She did more than simply take our words and pictures and upload them. She designed and created a beautiful, accessible, and interesting newsletter, playing around with our text and graphics and photos to get it all just right. She was speedy with edits, and extremely responsive to any suggestions, so that what resulted was something which looked like it had taken weeks rather than just 1 or 2 days to create. What is more, we are a non-profit group, so Kelli could easily have turned the work away, but she did not, simply because we needed assistance and she genuinely wanted to help. I will always be grateful to Kelli for her courtesy, understanding, professionalism and humanity. It means so much in today’s age when a real human being responds, and reacts, with such integrity and good will. Thank you Kelli; I would heartily recommend you to anyone.”
- Krystyna Duszniak, Greyhound Safety Net, Melbourne, Australia
“We at Greenway were lucky to find Kelli a few years ago. I had a very complicated form that I needed typeset overnight and didn’t have the time to do it myself. I hired Kelli and the next morning the file was in my email and was perfect. We have used her service quite a bit since then. We appreciate Kelli’s quick turnaround, her excellent work and her ability to communicate well and understand our needs. Every project, including forms, brochures, fixing art, etc. has always been delivered on time and perfect. Her attention to detail helps keep our production cycle running smoothly. We can’t say enough to express how good she really is.”
“I have to tell you that your turnaround time and professionalism are outstanding and I will highly recommend you to anyone that is looking for any logo work.”
- Paula Brown, Mt. Airy, MD - Day Break Fields
“Kelli was fantastic to deal with. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product or the process she used. The value provided, for a logo that will hopefully serve my business and my family name well for the next 100 years, was absolutely astounding! I can’t thank Kelli enough.”
- Todd Alexander, The Alexander Financial Group (PA)
“We have contracted Kelli to create artwork for several of our branding campaigns. Her work has never failed to impress us with their power and motion and realism. She always knows intuitively what we need and delivers the work in a timely manner. We look forward to working with her in the future.”
“Kelli Swan has worked with our company over various projects and has proven to be a tremendous value and asset to our team. In addition to her skills, she is professional, kind and a joy to work with. Kelli doesn’t shy away from challenges and won’t let you down. You can count on Kelli!”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kelli! As an architect, I am often in the position of finding the sometimes very delicate balance between offering my opinion and guidance on a project, and incorporating what the customer wants and/or think they want in a project. It has been great to work with a fellow professional who is easy to talk to, gives great advice, and yet listens to the customers’ wants and needs. I am very excited to have my own logo that I can proudly use in all of my business related correspondence and promotional materials.”
- Darryll Sherman, Residential Designs - Pullman, WA
“Kelli did a great job for a great price. I was impressed with how quickly she got our site up and running. I highly recommend her. If I would have known it was this affordable and easy, I would have done a website a long ago. It has boosted my business and made getting info to clients a breeze.”
“Kelli went above and beyond our expectations when we asked her to design our farm’s logo. She listened to our story and was able to capture the essence of what we wanted to portray as a family and a business. Our clients are especially impressed with the design of our logo. We highly recommend Kelli every chance we get. Thank you for your work, your patience and your talent at Half Pass Farm and Stables.”

“Let me start off by saying your customer service was incredible ... only to be topped by your product! You are an amazing artist with a knowledge of “branding!” Our sales will increase BECAUSE of your logo!”

“I am so fortunate to have found Kelli! She is fast, professional, and extremely talented. She offered expert advise and unbeatable level of quality and price. I am delighted with my flyers and I look forward to the next project. Thank you so much Kelli! ”
“I’m the vice president of a Cleveland advertising and general communications
firm. In overload situations, our artists need a reliable, conscientious team of outside artists to whom they can turn to get a job done beautifully, quickly, and without drawing on their already tapped resources. Kelli is a leader in this pack. She takes the ball and runs -- creating art that sells. Notable also, she is very detail oriented and easy to work with.”
“We at Greyhound Pets of America Houston were so excited when Kelli created original pencil drawings as fundraisers for our adoption program. The drawings are so realistic and totally capture the elegance of the breed. But more amazing is Kelli herself . . . her generosity and compassion and assistance in growing our program cannot be measured by mere dollars raised.”
