Joanne & Bill at Small Dog Design are like family to me and my #1 go to designers for movie posters! Intricate posters, complicated posters, and posters that require a creative vision for both VOD, Festivals and Theatrical release. Their dedication, follow up, professionalism, and creativity are bar none.

Avi Federgreen

President, Indiecan Entertainment & Federgreen Entertainment

I have worked with Joanne for over 15 years.  Working in an industry that doesn’t always allow for long lead times, Joanne always comes to the rescue. No matter how big, small or last-minute the job is, her work is consistently fantastic – on time, and always just the right design for the vibe we’re going for.

Stacy Murphy

Manager, Channel Marketing, Universal Music Canada

We often give Joanne creative freedom on jobs and always get back exactly what we’re looking for. Her professionalism, quick response time and dedication are unmeasurable and make working with Joanne an absolute pleasure.

Alexandra Horlatsch

Marketing Coordinator, Universal Music Canada

Joanne is someone I can rely on when it comes to graphic design and web banners. She delivers quickly and on time and at the last minute. Her prices are beyond reasonable as well. I have been working with her since my Universal Music Canada days, and have recommended her several times and will continue to do so!

Rose Slanic

General Manager, Better Noise Music

Small Dog Design worked with us at Anchor Bay Entertainment for 10 years. We used Small Dog Design for the design of DVD box art, print ads, online banners and everything in between. Joanne’s creativity and ability to just know what her clients want is truly amazing! Her dedication to each project small or large and making us happy is what kept 
us coming back for more! We trust her 100%!

Laura Dinato

HMV was pleased to have Joanne and Small Dog Design as part of our small group of graphic design partners. Joanne’s work is both creative and inventive. Joanne understands our brand and works very well with our team to deliver exceptional results for the myriad of mediums in which we worked in, on time and on budget. She is a pleasure to work with.
