“This was my first time working with Clint and he was AWESOME! I appreciated his communication skills, personality, and the creativity he brought to the project. He was able to listen to my vision, provide an opinion, and return a quality document before the agreed upon timeline. Look forward to working with him again in the future.”
"Clint volunteered on short notice to help us out given the quick deadline. Working with a talented designer like Clint truly makes such a difference on these types of projects. I was impressed with the quality of his work and ability to balance the need for quality with the time restrictions. His attention to detail was great and saved the team so much time."
"What truly made Clint’s support Gold Standard was his ability to be flexible to best assist the team. He did a great job checking in with me regularly to make sure I had the support I needed for the day and his positive attitude was truly refreshing. Clint is a great asset to our team and looking forward to hopefully working with him again."
Clint is a gem to work with. He approaches each project in a fresh, innovative and thoughtful manner and constantly researches, analyzes and recommends modern technologies. He introduced and implemented storage and project management tools to our team, which made us work more efficiently and effectively while ensuring brand consistency.
He has an extremely pleasant and professional demeanor when working with his peers and with the client directly. A proven problem solver, Clint is patient, responsive and articulate. My team and I have benefitted immeasurably from his wealth of experience, resourcefulness and enthusiasm."
I've had the joy of working with Clint as an interactive and print designer on a wide range of projects - from complex website designs to festival banners to brand development projects. He's a joy to work with - he draws from a deep well of research, technique and inventive play, and knows how to deliver a well-developed finished product on time and on budget.
As someone who loves to develop agilely and get into prototypes as fast as possible, Clint's speed, responsiveness, and creative range make him one of my favorite people to collaborate with."
Whenever I'm asked for a recommendation for a designer, Clint is the first person I approach. From a personable yet professional demeanor to expert knowledge to flawless deliverables, Clint is always a designer I'd recommend, especially for identity systems design or digital.
As a web development professional, I demand a high level of proficiency of designers when I'm contracting with one for a web design project. Web isn't print—and Clint get that. His work is always concept-driven and follows (or rather leads) the ever-changing digital landscape.
When I've worked with Clint, he's understood the restrictions and limitations of what digital design presents... and also when to question whether a boundary can be pushed, which is a quality I find necessary in a designer who is committed to advancing the field, rather than marinating in the status quo."
Clint is one of the most brilliant polymaths in Chicago. He's a designer who can write. He's a writer who can design. He's a critic who creates and a creative who critiques. Small wonder he's making his mark as both a thought leader and a productive member of society.
Clint May? No—Clint will."
I was happy to find myself on a team with Clint at my first agency job in Chicago. One thing that stands out about Clint is his consistent take-no-short-cuts approach to design. He taught me a great deal about developing a sturdy concept as the base to every design—no matter how big or small. Clint is not only a exemplary designer, but also a talented writer, self-starter, investigator and motivator—an excellent asset to any team."
Wielding sharply honed skill sets in identity, print and online media, Clint makes a phenomenal addition to any design team. His natural enthusiasm to learn and adopt creative technologies makes him a vast resource of executional savvy, and allows him to produce work at a pace rare in the industry.
Beyond that, he’s a crack copywriter which is a great pairing to his sense of meaningful design and awareness of brand identity. As a team member, Clint possesses a warm and engaging personality, quickly developing excellent rapport with clients and fellow teammates alike. His ability to take initiative and innovate when necessary means that Clint adds quantifiable value at every level."
Clint is great to work with. You can give him a project and he will always hit the ground running. A great organizer of ideas and thoughts. He has never missed a deadline and goes above and beyond any expectation on any job I have worked with him or have given him as a freelance designer.
He has always had a thirst for learning new technology that would help him make his work easier and more interesting. A great design style! Very clean. I would recommend Clint on any job."
