References and Testimonials

"With Thieme Creative Media, I was able to pursue all of my promotional needs: corporate logo, overall marketing strategy, company brochure, letterhead and business card, printer coordination, website domain selection, recommendation on web hosting company and then my first-ever company website. Everyone loves the web site. Very professional! The website look and professionalism is way ahead of competing private investigative firms.

"I have started forwarding brochures out to other local PI's, to Sheriff Cameron and some of the attorneys in Leonardtown. Everything seems to be coming to a head nicely! :-)"

"Once again, thank you for the great IHRT logo design! It is absolutely beautiful and is a wonderful and identifiable brand for the trail. Lots of favorable comments from the public regarding it's attractiveness.

Carole, I am extremely pleased with all of your work - the panels are wonderful! Your creativity, artwork (and patience with the client!) is top-notch. Please let me know if we can help with any future project references. "

"... my colleagues reacted very positively to the new look of the magazine. I also share the sentiment that this is unquestionably the best issue of STM ever, and equally important, rivals the editorial and design of any trade magazine.

Without any prompting from me, my co-workers commented about how they were struck by the cover concept, the conceptual imagery of the gears to depict innovation, as well as the large photos and generous use of white space.

There’s more! ... I was very impressed with the layout and the very adroit placement of photos, particularly those of all the paving equipment manufacturers.

... we are extremely pleased with the magazine. It’s our view that this new look will not only encourage readership, which in turn, should attract the positive attention we want from advertisers.

Thank you for such a great “first” edition!"

Bill Davenport
Vice President-Communications
American Concrete Pavement Association

“Our new website design provided by Thieme Creative Media is clearly superior to what preceded it. The organization of information that resulted from Phase I of the project (a.k.a. Thieme’s Architecture Boot Camp) is light years beyond where we were, and it’s well reflected in the Home page.

TCM went above and beyond the website template design process to ensure that their finished product could be easily integrated by our content management system.

Don and Carole were quick to respond when the project would bounce back to their court.

Taking it all into consideration, I am pleased with the site and how it looks, and members have commented on the improved functionality and ease of use. Overall, I think we are in a much better place than we were last spring.”

Director of Communications
National Court Reporters Association

"Don and Carole have given us our first ever Membership Marketing Kit. Don conceptualized and then wrote the copy for a series of handouts that are getting fantastic responses from our Board and others. The Membership Kit has provided us with a sharp, professional look that has ignited interest in our Association and is directly responsible for a marked increase in membership. Great copy and ideas were followed by Carole’s design and layout of the Kit.

"Additionally, she designed a 65th anniversary logo that is getting a very positive response in the marine industry."

Rosemary Lynch, Executive Director
Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Association

"I’ve worked with Carole for over twenty years. She has designed a wide range of printed materials for me, including magazines, newsletters, annual reports, directories, logos, brochures, signs, and much more. Carole has gone above and beyond the call of duty on more projects than I can count. No matter what situation I throw at her – including tight deadlines, unusual design requirements, and multiple rounds of changes – Carole has handled them all cheerfully, quickly, and without complaint."

“Carole has worked with our national, Quaker lobby for almost two decades. In my experience during the last four years, she has helped us to deliver newsletters that connect with our audience, motivate them to take action to support our goals, and persuade them to continue giving. I would strongly recommend her graphic design and marketing work.”

Jim Cason
Associate Executive Secretary
Friends Committee on National Legislation

"Carole is absolutely fabulous to work with. She is patient and understanding ... and she takes the time to truly understand your company's message or value proposition before integrating it into your marketing collateral or media. We highly recommend her firm for anyone looking for an excellent graphic designer."

“Carole can take your vision and create an amazing product. Her work on our printable marketing materials really made an impact when presented to our prospective clients.”

“Carole is an outstanding marketing designer. She helped us with all phases of our campaign, and the end result was just great. Great to work with in addition to outstanding expertise, creativity and originality. Highly recommended.”

"The firm has a wealth of talent.  So many creative skill sets.  TCM has provided us with overall marketing strategy, corporate branding, logo development, four-color architectural renderings of proposed house plans, design and layout of handouts and the creation of our company website.  Despite a sluggish housing market, TCM has engineered a website that continues to generate sales leads for Towne Craft Builders. 

Additionally, they have guided us with pay-per-click strategy on Google and Yahoo, generated banner ads that prompt click throughs on area portals, and produced great looking print advertisements. 

TCM's professionalism and client-first attitude far surpasses that of any other marketing firm I have had contact with over my 30-plus years experience in the home building industry.  It is a rare company who is as proficient and versatile in multiple arenas as TCM. Couple that with Don and Carole Thieme’s personal involvement with every job makes them one of our strongest assets."

“Thieme Creative Media is unlike any other firm I’ve worked with. Don and Carole have chosen to keep Thieme Creative Media small, allowing them to do what they love – graphic design and web development. The quality and creativity of their work are second to none, and the personal attention and cost savings of a small firm just can’t be beat. I highly recommend Thieme Creative Media and would use them again in a heartbeat.”

"Lightening fast, that's the first thing I appreciate about Carole Thieme, but I have to give full credit for her beautiful design work too. She has helped win an award for the TideKeeper TIMES, our newsletter."

Roz Racanello
Executive Director

"It is always refreshing to receive files from a designer that are not only prepared properly but are designed in a manner that is very printable. I have always found TCM's designs to be just that as well as creatively original and attractive. I have never hesitated in referring a client to Thieme Creative Media for design work and have always had exceptional feedback from those that have been referred. I look forward to doing business with Thieme Creative Media for many years to come."

“Carole‘s creativity and enthusiasm for Opie Otter© brought sheer delight into the idea of starting a mascot program at St. Mary’s County Health Department.  She has worked along with us and our partners to produce graphics which are not only visually appealing to children and families but also provide vibrant illustrations for the healthy habits we are promoting.  These images have given us a very powerful social marketing tool!”

Leslie Payne
Public Information Officer
St. Mary’s County Health Department

"Thank you for all your hard work on our fact sheets and brochure.  We couldn't have done it without you.  We've had many positive comments on all the documents.  We truly would have been lost without you."

"The current newsletter is really excellent, one NAA can be proud of. Congratulations to every one involved in it. It is a smart, good looking, succinct way to approach the membership."

Walter J. Boyne

"I contracted Thieme Creative Media for website design services in July 2006. I interviewed five other highly recommended Maryland based PR firms.

Thieme won out due to their availability, professionalism, and willingness to learn about my industry. Don Thieme is an intense listener whose creative proposals were always tailored to my specific needs. He spent considerable time, at a very reasonable cost, learning about my industry and my competitors and integrated this knowledge into the website design. The end product was a highly functional, professional, and frankly exciting website.

Revenue resulting from Internet-lead generation has increased five-fold in the six months following the launch of the new website!"
