I hired Rob to make 4 wine labels. I also hired about 5 other graphic designers to do the other wine labels. Rob's work and communication skills were obviously on a much higher level than his competition. He is a very professional designer and gets his work done on time and in the budget he quotes. You won't have any regrets if you use Rob for your designs.
–Carson Merkwan, President Riverbend Winery
Rob is able to listen to his clients, to hear what they need and then to suggest concepts that meet those needs, but also build on them to strengthen the messaging. He is creative and innovative in his designs. Everything he ever produced for us was first rate, on-time and as cost-effective as he could make it. We have beautiful promotional pieces because of Rob. I recommend him highly.
–K.T. Ockels, Manager Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Rob is an outstanding designer who can take a project from concept to implementation with excellent results. We have always been pleased with the look, the price and the turn-around time of each publication he's designed.
–Dianna Ott, Director, Digital Media Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
From point of introduction Rob Gorstein was professional, attentive and expedient. Rob's work created visual life to a report that had numerous hours invested in it, helping to draw in readers and stimulate the attention it deserved. Rob was flexible with a tight schedule and very responsive to requests for adjustments in the drafting process. He was clear about his scheduling and capacity and delivered what was promised. We value the creativity of his work would recommend him without reservation.

Rob’s customer service and professionalism are second to none. I’ve never known him to miss a deadline, and he’s always willing to adjust when we have an unexpected change in plans with a project (which invariably happens a lot!). Rob is not only creative; he makes a point to fully understand what we are trying to communicate before he begins a design project. This usually translates to fewer revisions, which gets our publications out the door faster and into the hands of our audience quicker.
–Andy McLeroy, Employee Communications Coordinator Baptist Hospital East Marketing and Public Relations
When we needed a redesign of our monthly newsletter, Rob Gorstein's high-quality proposal was clearly the best. Rob put our newsletter together for several years, proving reliable and unshakeable in the face of some interesting deadline challenges and last minute changes.
–Kit Fullenlove, Public Relations Manager Baptist Hospital East Marketing and Public Relations
Kentucky Youth Advocates has been using the graphic design services of Rob Gorstein since 2007, and we have been extremely happy with the quality of the products. As an organization whose publications are viewed across the state, we rely on Rob to shape our work into visually appealing and easy to follow documents that draw in readers. We use Rob’s services for a variety of documents ranging from our annual KIDS COUNT Data Book to periodic reports and briefs. His patience, flexibility and expertise make the design phase of our projects stress-free!

12 years ago when Highland Coffee was still just an idea, we approached Rob Gorstein to come up with ideas for our logo. We really wanted to use someone independent & local. We picked Rob, and it was one of the best calls we made. The hardest part was that he had so many great ideas, it was hard to choose! We continue to work with him on a regular basis for all of our graphic design needs.
–Natalie & Greg Hofer, Owners Highland Coffee Company
For over seven years, Rob Gorstein has worked with the Metropolitan Housing Coalition on varying reports that we publish. He takes very daunting information and, through design, makes it approachable for anyone. It is amazing what excellent design can do for what would just be a lot of words on a page. Rob is completely reliable in his work and NEVER misses deadlines. Equally important is that as the copies go back and forth for final edits, Rob remains unflappable and a pleasure to work with – and we inevitably have last minute requests of him. MHC’s work has a wider audience simply because the design makes it accessible.
–Cathy Hinko, Executive Director Metropolitan Housing Coalition
I used Rob to design a custom logo for my new consulting firm. Rob took a special interest in both me and my firm's aspirations. He took the time to interview me and find out about my business philosophy and mission. Then he came back with a stunning array of concepts. Several spoke to me strongly, but it didn't take long to settle on the design I wanted. Rob then patiently tweaked the colors I wanted and yielded a perfect logo. Rob then designed my business card around the logo and, once again, nailed it. I have distributed those cards across the United States to clients and prospects of every kind. ALL of them have commented on the logo as being both unique and beautiful. Thanks to Rob, I have a unique graphic set to help me in creating a visual brand.
