For three years, Ian Black has been our mainstay for all things graphic for Ottawa House Museum in Parrsboro. Our new interpretive plan involved a complete redesign of everything from our logo to small directional signs, large interpretive panels and roadside signs.
Fast and talented, Ian takes one’s ideas to a much higher level with his quick and creative mind and magic fingers! And when there is a blank page for him to start with, there is no limit to what he can dream up.
His business is a tremendous asset to this small town; we are fortunate indeed to have such a service so close at hand.

Today I visited Ian at his shop in Parrsboro, as I was in need of a logo for a new business. I read the reviews and his blog posts, which resonated with me as a new business owner, and since I am a very visual person, I wanted to work with someone in person, rather than over the phone or email as I know I would not have been able to articulate what I was looking for. Admittedly, I was nervous to take this step towards opening my small business. Getting a logo and starting the branding process makes it official. Ian was absolutely wonderful to work with, and within a couple hours of him patiently showing me different options and offering up lots of suggestions and advice, I left with an awesome new logo. I never dreamed that would come to fruition in one afternoon. He is great at what he does and it is wonderful to support a local business. He was extremely affordable, which is fantastic because I am definitely on a tight budget. I would highly recommend the graphic design services that he offers. He is a true professional, going above and beyond, while making you feel very comfortable with the process. Thanks a million, Ian!
