What Our Clients Say

  We drive creative solutions that delivers unique impressions and brand awareness for our clients.  
  We transfer brands with creativity to drive solutions. If we must climb the mountain to see the rainbow or dig the well for the diamond in the rough, is the commitment we will live by and strive for 

  Unique Image takes all the worry out of the work we cannot complete in-house. When we were stuck on the creative for a national advertising campaign, not only did they come up with the foundation of a brand that we still use years later, but they provided insights into our complete B2C approach to marketing that layered the thinking that led to a five-year marketing plan that keeps bearing fruit. No other outside agency has ever delivered what they did at a price that wouldn’t, and didn’t, jeopardize my annual marcom budget. 

  Working with Unique Image is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made for my organization. Unique Image works closely with us to understand our needs and consistently delivers marketing assets that are beautiful, thoughtful and impactful. 

  Wafa Kanan and her team hold to an impeccable standard of excellence, from design to execution. Unique Image provides personalized service and always goes above and beyond to ensure our success in both overall branding and design as well as with our special event planning. 

  Unique Image helped Westside Food Bank with a comprehensive rebranding process that included a wide range of assets including brochures, digital design assets, food collection boxes, stationary, promotional items, advertisement design, business cards, and more, while providing thoughtful consultation and advice to guide us through the process. 

  Over the years that we’ve worked with Unique Image we’ve seen significantly higher response rates for our mail solicitations and enjoyed greater visibility in the community. I highly recommend Unique Image for their professionalism, commitment to.
