“As a brand-new social enterprise we needed to develop a logo, tagline, website and suite of design standards that allowed us to step out from our charity founder but still convey our dedication to mission while promoting our new partnerships and re-commitment to technical and programmatic innovation. Spryberry created all of the tangible communication materials and content that we needed. From logo development to website flow and content that helps relay our two drivers (mission and innovation), Spryberry did a huge amount of work for us.

Spryberry was great to work with! What we appreciated most of all was their listening, we never had to go back and say “no you didn't get it'”, edits and updates were always around small tweaks to design or language and never around tone or clarity. This made the work truly enjoyable and absolutely meets our needs.

The feedback so far has been great, people love the colours and design standards that were created and find our website easy to use and stylish. We very much look different from our founders and partners but the feeling of connection still exists, which was critical for our clients during our transition.

We recommend working with Spryberry!”

Amanda Barney, CEO, TEEM Fish

“My organization was looking for a communications partner for the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada Indigenous Fire Marshal Office Project. The project needed a bi-lingual website, as well as print and digital communications with an updated design theme that better reflected our aspirations.

Spryberry helped us define what existing content was superfluous and what we should keep and created consistent language across all mediums. We also asked Spryberry to create brand standards that retained our crests as the centre element. They created brochures, flyers, and designed a beautiful, easy to navigate website that is visually appealing but low-bandwidth friendly.

Spryberry is an amazingly responsive team! They were really good at asking us the right questions and quickly ‘got’ us. We’re delighted with the finished products and we are getting great feedback from our members and beyond. We’ve already recommended Spryberry to others and will continue to do so.”

Emma Wiggins , Founder, Triumph BSA
“In the spring of 2019, we engaged Spryberry to help us develop the first edition of our Complaints Management Toolkit for Fraser Health staff and physicians. We needed a resource that would provide all the necessary information our staff needed in a visually appealing and easy-to-use format. The end result was stunning! We have an online version and printed hard copies and expect the resource to be widely adopted across our health authority. Word about this new resource is spreading quickly and we are already receiving a ton of positive feedback thanks to Spryberry. We will absolutely reach out to Spryberry in the future for all our graphic design needs…many thanks!”
Michelle Preston, MA, Managing Consultant, Patient Care Quality and Safety, Fraser Health

“Spryberry came highly recommended to me from Jane Atkinson and others in the professional speaking industry as to whom I should consider when hiring a website creator. I needed a website to help me showcase my speaking services and Spryberry did not disappoint on any level. Their recommendations were “right on” and their timeliness and follow up exceeded my expectations, especially after working with a different provider for a short time. Clients who have viewed my site are impressed with its style and professionalism. I whole heatedly recommend the Spryberry team for your website needs. Thank you Dana, Tara, Sarah, Scotty and Shawne!”

“We needed to merge, after putting two different businesses together, two websites into one. The spryberry team came up with a great solution that exposed the two businesses perfectly on our new website.

During the process of getting the website done, the spryberry team was always there for us when we asked for changes — and the time of implementing the changes was really fast and always on time.

Our new website looks great and our clients like it a lot.  We definitely recommend Spryberry and would work with them again without any hesitation.”

Ralf Holzapfel, Co-Owner Brainpower360

“We were very pleased with the work that the Spryberry team delivered for Ecotrust Canada. The charity was launching a new social enterprise, TeemFish Monitoring Inc., and we needed a logo, design standards, website, and sales tools that would make it stand out from the crowd. With our modest budget, Dana project-managed and utilized her team very effectively so I never felt money was being idly spent. Communication was great right from the start, with Dana asking the right questions to get to the essence of what we were looking for, and the team being very responsive to our feedback on the solutions while also offering their best advice. Each member of the team brings a great energy, so you always feel things are moving forward and that your project is as important to them as it is to you. I have used Spryberry again for our annual report, and have no hesitation in recommending them to others who are looking for efficient and effective marketing support.”

Sarah Stott, VP Development & Communications, Ecotrust Canada

“HousePaws Mobile Veterinary Service has undergone explosive growth since our beginnings in 2010. Our previous website felt outdated and lacked functionality-we needed to update and enhance our online home to better reflect the cutting edge nature and high quality standards of our practice. We looked locally and then widely for a website designer would would create a modern website in look and function, but retain a sense of our individual style and community values. After interviewing a number of designers who we felt relied too heavily on templates and would be resistant to our creative impulse, we came across Spryberry. They listened to what we felt was important, and designed a new website that feels friendly, yet professional, and provides a platform for growth as we continue to expand as a company. Spryberry’s team brought innovative ideas to the table, but they were also very responsive in bringing to life the ideas we had for the website. Working with the Spryberry team was a collaborative, rewarding experience, and we’re thrilled with the end product. We recommend them highly.”

“The Tk'emlúps te Secwepemc cultural heritage study project began in late March 2017 and focused on identifying and articulating TteS’s intangible and tangible cultural heritage, to ensure that it is protected and avoided during the KM Trans Mountain project development and construction phase. Spryberry helped design the layout of the 440 page technical report and smaller, more public-facing high-end booklet. I was very happy with the final products and would recommend Spryberry for future report design.”

“Spryberry’s design work is impressive. They’ve done an amazing design layout that carries forward our 2017 patient experience conference look –and applied it to the 2018 conference materials and the women’s health portion of the conference. We are thoroughly happy with all of the work they are doing. I feel confident that we will continue to have great success in this work. I don’t take a moment of it for granted. Sincere thanks to Sarah and Dana for everything.”

Stephanie Bale, Communications Consultant, Fraser Health

“With Spryberry’s help, we were able to integrate our social efforts and move social media in house so that our own experts could speak intelligently and quickly to customers. Customers are asking questions and getting the best answers. Our social selling has skyrocketed.”

“The dedicated team of Spryberry and Apollo Healthcare Project Management were fantastic to work with. They were extremely committed, organized and professional. They took my dream of a heart failure clinic in a private office, and worked with me every step of the way to turn it into reality. I am amazed at everything we accomplished and extremely grateful for everything they did.  They were outstanding.”

Dr. John Vyselaar, North Shore Heart Clinic

“We came to Spryberry after not being happy with our previous website provider. Spryberry was very good at explaining the technical side of things that had been previously misrepresented. They quickly and efficiently helped us to create a website and digital presence we are proud of. More importantly, they have been able provide a cost effective online presence. We would not hesitate to recommend Spryberry to other small businesses.”

Rob Hopkins, DVM, Owner, Burquitlam Animal Hospital

“My company has been using Spryberry's services for years. We keep coming back because, simply put, they are the best we've worked with and offer excellent value for their services. What sets them apart is the fact that they really took the time to get to know our needs–even as we grow and evolve. We'll be working with Spryberry for years to come.”

Edoye Porbeni, CEO, Future Health Ventures Inc.

“We worked with Spryberry on completing the graphic design for our provincial standards of care for cystic fibrosis and care pathways. While the content of the standards and care pathways were written for clinicians, Spryberry was able to inquire about the potential uses of these documents and how they would be accessed. Dana skillfully designed the standards and care pathways for that audience and their needs while being open to feedback and providing suggestions throughout the entire process. The final products were formatted for both the web and for print, enabling us to disseminate them to many different audiences. I enjoyed working with Dana, and would recommend her for report design services. Dana is very skilled in working with technical information and presenting it in a clear and user friendly way. Spryberry is professional, flexible and delivers quality services. Thank you for your all your assistance!”

Kamaljeet Guram, Manager, Provincial Health Services Authority

“Simply put Dana and the staff at Spryberry are Rockstars at what they do. Dana has had to deal with several of our clients and the charities we support as our Marketing and Branding specialists.  I have had several companies from insurers to charities call and say how great she and her staff were to deal with on our projects. In 2016, I bought a firm in London, UK and I put Spryberry in touch with our COO there. Spryberry created a new name and brand, and the UK team raved about her vision, collaboration and ease of communication.”

Alexis Harke, Insight Insurance
“Dana Koch, leading her team at Spryberry, has unfailingly met the communications needs of clients on whose projects we have collaborated, ranging from marketing and communications materials created for a childhood obesity project carried out for BC Children’s Hospital, to complete rebranding including website redevelopment for Greater Vancouver Community Services Society and the BC Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries. It is a pleasure to work with someone like Dana, who engages at the strategic level, and who translates that strategy into creativity with impressive creativity, speed, and attention to detail. Dana is able to understand the constraints within which public sector and not for profit organizations operate, and within that context, deliver quality solutions that speak effectively to their stakeholders.”
Helen Carkner, (retired) VP Communications, Fraser Health
“Working with Tara & Dana and their team at Spryberry has transformed PADS from the inside out. From simplifying our systems from 5 technologies to ONE – to driving thousands of visitors to our site every single month through SEO & Adwords grants – to transforming our volunteer program through our online community “The Hydrant” I couldn’t be more grateful for their knowledge and expertise. We couldn’t do what we do without them!”
Laura Watamanuk, Executive Director, PADS
“Tara provided both social media training for our Communications team, as well as developed a social media marketing strategy for one of our business units. Our group walked away from the training with a strong sense of excitement around the things we would be able to accomplish. While all of us were well-versed in social media, Tara’s insights really took our group to a new level. The strategy she developed for our website and the social media and online advertising plan around it were easily implemented and resulted in drastically improved search engine ranking and traffic to the site. I would absolutely recommend the services of Spryberry and Tara. Great to work with and impressive results.”
Corinna Bork, Director, Communications, Maxxam Analytics
“Spryberry researched and provided SEO recommendations and a subsequent pay-per-click campaign for a local neighbourhood development that was promoting the sale of building lots to first time home buyer and those close to retirement age. The project is ongoing and the traffic generated from this campaign has led to increased awareness and actions to visit the website for more information. I have enjoyed working with Spryberry, which is thorough in its explanation of strategy, and very responsive when there are questions or concerns. I would recommend Spryberry to others.”
Jennifer Muir, Communication Consultant, Thought Dot Marketing

“We love working with Spryberry! We have been working with them for over 10 years.

They are the only designers we trust with our logo and brand, as they understand us and our clients.  They have an edgy flair that always remains professional.  We are always getting compliments on our brand, especially our new square business cards.

Always accommodating, committed and agile, Spryberry makes us look great on our crazy timelines!”

Lisa Leitch, Teneo Results
“Dana has worked with me to design and execute two corporate rebrands for Urban Systems; the first in 2005 and the second in 2012. In both cases, Dana proved to be an excellent thinking partner and highly creative and efficient designer. In our most recent rebrand, Dana was invited to step into the project part way through. She came up to speed quickly and demonstrated great flexibility in advancing a partially developed design concept. In addition, to her excellent design contributions, Dana is a very pragmatic consultant who strives to deliver a high quality product as quickly and cost effectively as possible.”
Trina Wamboldt, Urban Systems

“We are a small group with big plans and reached out to Spryberry to assist us with a fundraising event. Dana and Spryberry immediately set to work to get a system in place to help us advertise our event and sell tickets online.  Working within a very short timeframe, Dana and her amazing staff activated our website, created a simple but effective graphic to announce our event and sourced out the most cost effective means for us to sell tickets online. Whenever we had a question or concern Dana’s response time was amazing and she would often phone to clarify something.  Most importantly, Dana and Spryberry made us feel like we were the most important client they had.”

“We worked with Spryberry on rebranding our company and found their guidance invaluable. Spryberry led our team through the process with excellent advice, and they made sure we stayed on track. The research they conducted was so insightful in helping us better understand the areas of opportunity leading into the design stage (which was fantastic). We feel we were in great hands with the Spryberry team and recommend them highly. We are delighted with our new brand and the launch of our website!”
Suzette Bayrock, Think Mint Media

Spryberry's clear intention and creativity, unquestionably has reflected the essence of all I stand for in my commitment to empowering my niche audience. The results of my new website is artistically brilliant, with consistent positive feedback from a significant group of sophisticated individuals, allowing for a newfound credibility that was essential at this critical time of my career!

Not only is her work strategic, creative and “wow”, she's also very client-focused. Whenever I had a question or concern, she got back to me in lightning speed, which is very important to me. I highly recommend her.”
Steve Slaunwhite, Copywriting Training Centre

Yvonne O'hara, Langara College
“We worked with Spryberry on a project for the mental health programs at BC Children’s Hospital, and were very impressed with the quality of their work, their dedication to their clients, and their genuine passion for the project. From the first time we met with Dana and Tara, we knew that Spryberry was going to be a great fit with the project and what we were envisioning. Our project involved a collaborative team environment, which sometimes meant getting lots of different feedback and trying to balance multiple perspectives. The Spryberry team has excellent communication skills, is always open and responsive to ideas, and is able to effectively manage tight timelines. They demonstrated great flexibility, and were proactive and solution-oriented when we were faced with difficult decisions or changes in the project plan. In the end, we couldn’t be happier with the final product, and we are so excited for the clinical team to start sharing the resource that was developed with patients and parents. Thank you Spryberry for all of the creativity, positive energy and personal touch that you brought to this project – we look forward to working with you again!”

“The Kamloops Interior Dragons (KIDS) 55+ dragon boat club wanted to create a new website to provide members with current information, help to recruit potential paddlers and raise awareness within our city and the dragon boat community. We contacted Spryberry and are very pleased with end result. 

KIDS members are impressed with the website’s professional design, ease of use and attractive layout.

The instruction was well done and having a training video available for referencing when modifying the website has proven extremely helpful.

The KIDS look forward to seeing new individuals join our club as a result of this great website!”

“Dana has been an absolute delight to work with. She is professional and very personable, and is an excellent communicator. I hired her to create an entire social media platform for my new blog, and I am thrilled with the results. Not being particularly tech savvy, Dana patiently took the time to explain the entire process in a manner I understood. I would highly recommend Dana and her team for any size job, and I would certainly return to her and her highly skilled team for any future job requirements.”
Pam Azad, The Laughter Womb
