Testimonials and Recognition

“Jackson Foster and his organization were a vital creative partner to New Directions Search during a time when we were changing the identity of our business. He took the time to meet with our team, to understand our business and to create a logo and corporate identity program that expressed who we are and communicated what we wanted to say to the marketplace. Now, more than ten years later, we still have the same logo and continue to be happy with the outcome that The ID Entity provided. Our sincere thanks.”

Dale Frank,

President, New Directions, Inc.

“The ID Entity’s design work on our “Real Challenges. REALTOR® Solutions” ad campaign has been first rate. We are very pleased with the ads. They are colorful, compelling and stand out from the crowded field in the publications in which they run.”

“The ID Entity played a vital role as a strategic partner with the Virginia Biotechnology Association in designing the new brand identity for the Chesapeake Bioscience Education Foundation. The variety of well-conceived concepts they presented to our board helped us choose a design that succeeds in communicating exactly what we needed to reach our intended audience. I would recommend The ID Entity to anyone that is looking to build a highly effective visual brand identity for their organization.”

“It’s not easy finding a graphic designer that has the ability to read my mind. Luckily, Jackson at The ID Entity is just enough of a mind reader to be able to produce quality work with sometimes very little information. Jackson was able to transform my meager ideas into a quality promotional piece for our company. He is an excellent listener and took my basic ideas, refined them, and then created a first-rate, quality brochure.”

Shawn Sloan,

The Media Partners

“The ID Entity really ‘gets it’ when it comes to capturing the essence of what an organization is all about. In developing a logo for one of our association’s policy research programs, The ID Entity not only understood our business, but also was able to create a logo that resonated with our customers. Working with The ID Entity was a comfortable and rewarding experience — and together we got the job done. I’d highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a creative and comprehensive approach to branding.”

Elizabeth Giovaniello,

Surround Sound Program Director

“I have had the opportunity to work with Jackson Foster and his firm, The ID Entity since 2006. He has provided services in several areas of endeavor and delivered consistently outstanding results. The ID Entity has helped our organization to develop a brand that is used on all of our communications. Branding is not well understood by the layperson, but Jackson helped us to understand its utility and then worked with us to develop a distinctive and compelling graphic presence. Our organization is much stronger and effective as a result of The ID Entity’s skilled guidance in helping us to present as well as maintain our unique identity. He has also helped to design and produce wayside exhibit panels that are used for heritage tourism applications for the city of Fredericksburg. I recommend The ID Entity without hesitation.”

“I’ve worked with The ID Entity on dozens of projects over the years. Jackson Is one of the most creative people I have ever worked with. When we first came up with the idea for the Construction Institute, we had basic ideas for how we wanted it represented. Jackson and The ID Entity took our concept and made it real, collaborating with us to come up with a final product that was beyond what we had ever expected. The result was so successful that our education program tripled in size in a very short time.”

“The design solutions that The ID Entity and Jackson Foster develop are visually beautiful and equally important, strategic. I’ve worked with The ID Entity for several years as a client and now as a collaborator. Jackson brings insight and creativity to each assignment whether it’s a single logo or a full branding and promotional program. He asks the right questions and develops the appropriate solutions to meet critical communication and business objectives.”

“Jackson met with our regional tourism partnership team and took time to understand the goals for our small but important ad design project. He took an abundance of advice and requests, then produced a sterling concept that was readily accepted. The ad turned out great, thanks to Jackson’s clear-eyed vision for our needs. We expect the ad will serve the tourism partnership well for some time to come.”
