Rave Reviews

“David is creative, professional, easy to work with, always willing to do whatever it takes to get a project done right, on-time and on-budget. He also understands the necessity of strategic direction in a project and keeps that in focus throughout the design process.”

Lauri O. Klefos, President & CEO, Berkshire Visitors Bureau


“David is, without a doubt, the best creative thinker I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. He can take simple concepts and turn them into advertising programs or web pages that not only stimulate the eye, but build brand awareness in an innovative way. His talent and expertise not only helped our Division earn national level advertising awards but also changed how the general public and decision makers view our programs and services.”

Steve Boucher, Communications Manager, NH Division of Economic Development


“Working with David over several years is a pleasure.  He is both responsive and exhibited exciting creative talents, a combination that can be tough to find in today’s business world.”

Karl Stone, Marketing Director, Ski New Hampshire


“David Deal is a wonderful designer who makes the work sing. He delivers creativity on budget and on time—every time—regardless of the project or distance between us. He is, in short, brilliant.”

Barbara Werden, Design & Production Manager, Texas Tech University Press


“The Maine Forest Service worked with David Deal when he was with Glen Group to do design and layout of the centennial edition of our flagship publication Forest Trees of Maine. This was a complicated year long project that started with an old, rather outdated, black and white publication and turned it into a full color 176 page tree identification guide book. David was involved in the project from initial brainstorming sessions about what we wanted the book to look like all the way through working with the state contracted printer to ensure the final product came out as intended.

David was very enjoyable to work with. Throughout the project he was extremely professional, flexible and above all patient with our book development committee, none of whom knew anything about book design going into the project. David’s work showed creativity and attention to detail. We provided him with over 250 photographs, 70 maps and text written by several different people which he combined into useful, coherent and visually appealing page layouts. In short, we are extremely pleased with the final product and more importantly we have received hundreds of positive comments from people who use the book.”

Keith Kanoti, Water Resources Forester, Maine Forest Service


“Mr. Deal’s professional background and real world experience greatly enhances what he brings to the classroom. Having finished my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts at Eastern New Mexico University, I had Mr. Deal for many of my classes. Upon completing one of his classes I felt that much more prepared to take on real world graphic design opportunities. His teaching style is very hands-on and a priority in his classroom is to make sure that every student gets individual attention throughout the process of an assignment which I felt greatly increased the progress of each individual.”
Hannah Spearman, Graphic Design Student, Eastern New Mexico University

“David Deal is an exceptionally skilled professor who brings an enormous amount of quality experience, methods, and patience to his classroom. His genuine desire to help students goes beyond any instructor I have met, and his constant insistence that students work their hardest while maintaining a comfortable and inviting atmosphere is part of what makes him such a unique pleasure to learn from.”
Dale Landry, Graphic Design Student, Eastern New Mexico University
