Marty Jones, Colorado craft beer legend


"Bill has created icons, posters and stickers for my church, House for All Sinners and Saints, and never ceases to impress me with how much his graphics creatively "fit" our whole vibe and ethos.  He's intuitive and inventive and always produces something much cooler than I imagined when discussing the idea with him!  He's a solid bet!"

Nadia Bolz-Weber, House for All Sinners & Saints


"I've worked on a number of jobs with Bill. He creates solid new brand and updates existing ones with respect, budget, and target audience carefully researched. Not only does he work well in two-dimensional space, but he has a keen understanding and multi-dimensional design opportunities. He is professional and his follow up is excellent. As a PR professional, he is top on my list for a project team."

Pat Smith, On Target PR


"He took my half naked idea and made it better than I could have possibly imagined"

Stephen Ludwig


"Working with Bill was as smooth as silk. He is professional, accessible, creative, kind and reasonable! No challenge was too large when compiling my cookbook and meeting deadlines. It was a pleasure to work with Bill and I will be hiring him to be my graphic artist for my next book. What better recommendation is that?!"

Barbara Stafford, Eclectic Entertaining


"We hired Bill at Rivet Designworks three years ago to create the logo for our practice, Mile High Eye Care. We gave him some input on the overall concept of what we were looking for and he went right to work on it. A few weeks later when he came back with the finished product we were amazed. His design was much better than anything we had in our mind and we knew then and there it would be the logo we would use for years to come. Not only was Bill really easy to work with, his finished product was exceptional and something that we are proud to have on our building, business cards and advertising. We would not hesitate to use Rivet Designworks for any and all future projects."

Kyle Hughes, Mile High Eyecare


Bill worked with me during the early stages of starting Compass LTC in designing a brand that would reflect the company's image in multiple venues. The logo Bill designed worked well on the WEB site, business cards, and all forms of advertising. He really took all of these issues into consideration and therefore saved me hours of time and money as the company grew. I would highly recommend working with Bill to get it right the first time!” 

Ed Sutterfield, Compass LTC


“Bill was a joy to work with on my corporate identity. We spent one meeting brainstorming all around concepts about my business, and from that he nailed my logo. He gave me three samples and from there I picked the best. I had some miniscule fussy things I wanted to adjust and he didn't get upset about that like some artists (i.e., egos) might. Very professional, very creative, clean & tight design. He's given me an identity that I can carry forward indefinitely. I highly recommend Bill.” 

Eric Blommel, Systematek LLC


“Bill is an energetic designer with no shortage of ideas. He can quickly return interesting and varied comps and is able to go full circle, handling production schedules and delivery. He has helped me in my freelance business and has always been available for assistance, feedback and referrals.”
