What our clients say

Our work speaks volumes about our creative capabilities. But, we know you like to hear the word on the street too! Here are a few words from our clients.

What you see is what you get. Unlike your quintessential agency cliché, we’re not a big team of hot shots delegating tasks to junior designers. We’re a small masterful team who believes in putting a spirited effort into honest long-term relationships with our clients.

Working with Rachelle was a delight! You know when you are looking for a place to live, and you walk into the house that just feels like home? You know that feeling? Well we had that feeling early on with Rachelle. She showed us a few concepts for our new Holy Crap™ packaging, and she nailed it! We knew working with her was our one! Not only do we love our new packaging, but our customers and retail partners also feel the same way.

As we evolve to a more agile and human centred design approach with our innovation pipeline, I’ve appreciated the creative horsepower and agility that Rachelle brings to the table. She combines thoughtfulness with speed while maintaining a high caliber of creative effectiveness throughout the process. We look forward to continuing to engage Zesty Brands as we continue to move our brand and portfolio of innovations forward.

We’ve worked with Rachelle on a variety of projects from the development of our Hitcase™ branding to packaging. Rachelle’s work has always been on point and she works quickly. Highly recommended!
- Brooks Bergreen, HITCASE
Our team worked with Rachelle to refresh and implement the brand at one of BC’s top Lower Mainland school districts. Rachelle’s approach was professional and her design skills are unmatched. One of the challenges in a project of this scope is getting and retaining broad organizational support for the implementation aspects of the project.
Fortunately, Rachelle’s responsiveness at every stage of the process and her ability to explain design decisions to non-communicators always kept us moving in the right direction. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone embarking on a major organizational design process, and I am grateful for her contribution to the success of our project.
- Beverly Pausce, West Vancouver Schools
I have engaged Zesty Brands services for all of our product packaging design needs. Not only is Rachelle a very talented graphic designer, she is an absolute pleasure to work with, and can always be trusted to deliver fantastic results. Highly recommended!
- Jamie Kasza, STACT
I worked with Rachelle on the Chiwis brand as well as the retail ready packaging for our first two SKUS which can now be found in stores across BC. Rachelle was a pleasure to work with. She is very collaborative and open to ideas. Rachelle brings experience and a trained eye to brand and package design. We consistently receive compliments on our packages and would never have been able to showcase Chiwis so well without Rachelle!
- Sarah Goodman, Chiwis

Zesty Brands have done the branding for three of my companies, Canvas Homes, Sea to Sky Construction, and Muse Architecture. Each brand is unique, eye-catching, and most importantly, relevant to the company’s core values and beliefs. Rachelle’s design work garners frequent compliments from our clients and has helped push all three brands to the next level as they become a house-hold name in the industry. We appreciate your effort Rachelle!
- Avi Dhaliwal, Canvas Homes
My favorite thing about Rachelle is that she’s not interested in telling the same story twice. She’s curious from the start, creative with her approach and really cares about the art that’s being born into the world. Anyone who wants to “say something” knows how hard it is to find those qualities. Rachelle is kind, committed, and goes above and beyond the ask – a pleasure to work with!
- Erika Rouleau, Ocean Spray®
Zesty Brands creative work stands out and has greatly helped build our cycling brand at Rescue Project. Rachelle is professional, timely and really understands our mission. I would highly recommend Zesty Brands to anyone seeking guidance and expertise in creative design, branding, apparel and cycling kit design and brand strategy.
