“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.
“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

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!”

“I've worked with dozens of design firms over the years and Dana (and her team) are among the best — if not THE best. 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

Savvy, connected, and innovative, with Tara on the job, you can be assured that your communications needs will be met and your expectations exceeded.”
Yvonne O'hara, Langara College
“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 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!”
Kim Korf-Uzan & Meredith de Freitas, Health Literacy Team, BCCH
“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

Dana’s broad technical understanding of all aspects of graphic design, printing and web programming has enriched her visual communications expertise. As a graphic design and website developer, Spryberry is a gem!”

Very professional high quality work, on schedule, on budget and with complete professionalism.
