Words of Delight

I hired Cheryl to help create some NFTs for our women’s healthcare company. She was beyond amazing.

She took our vision and amplified it to another level completely. She had amazing ideas, expertise and passion.

Her knowledge and attention to detail made everything easy for our developer. I was also impressed with how quickly she could create assets without compromising the final result.

You can tell she is a true artist who is passionate about creating something she is proud of and that her client is proud of.

I will absolutely work with Cheryl on future projects and have already referred her to some colleagues.

Cheryl came highly recommended. Starting a new business, I wanted to make sure everything is done the best way possible that would help us stand out above our competition.

The website is a key element which needs to be informative and inviting. Cheryl designed an awesome website, incorporating all the information needed to showcase our company and professional services.

Her design work and text throughout is fantastic and spot on!

She will be an asset to anyone needing her abilities as a web designer.

I have had the pleasure of working with Cheryl of Cherbear Creative many times on multiple projects. She is a joy to work with and always exceeds my expectations. I initially commissioned her to draw some portraits of my personal dogs. I loved her aesthetic so much that I had her create a logo for my business and from there had her create a whole branding kit.
Every item she has created for me has been exactly what I was looking for.
She is great with the collaborative
process and always delivers all items quickly. My favorite project I’ve worked on with Cheryl was a complete set of custom illustrations that included a dog print I turned into fabric and
several illustrations I turned into t-shirts as part of a collection to raise money for the senior dog rescue I volunteer for.
Her creativity knows no bounds and
I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great graphic designer.
