“A number of people have asked me about the logo for Lem-Le Röcha. It was created by hand by John Lathrop at Plaid Design. He did an amazing job, and took his time to perfect the logo down to the very last detail in the lettering and the beard. I highly recommend anyone looking for design work to contact him. He won’t disappoint. Thanks John and Plaid Design.” - Jeff L., Co-Owner, Lem-Le Röcha



“Plaid Design created a logo and brand for my podcast. The price was right, the turnaround was timely, and communication was seamless, despite the fact that it was all over email (I live in Chicago, Plaid is based in Austin). The thing that stands out to me about Plaid is that they're not just a graphic design studio that knows how to treat clients, they also know how to stand out visually. I've never seen any graphic designer have such a strong, original, polished style of work. Don't take my word for it, either! Check out their portfolio! From the first image you see, it's clear that they've got something different going, and isn't that what you want to have for your project?” - Eli V., Owner, All People Are Famous Podcast



“Plaid Design created an awesome logo for my band. I gave very little direction on what I was looking for, which can be very difficult for designers, but PD blew me away with the first draft. Thank you!” - Chris S., Co-Founder, Light the Sun



“John is a great artist and designer and is super easy to work with. I can’t recommend him enough.

I promise you will be very happy with the finished product.” - Ferbie M., Mod Pop Art Client
