“Quick, professional, fast and most of all reliable!!!!! Mike is the real deal and I can not say enough good things about him! If you are tired of working with graphic designers that are wasting your time then Mike Gaurino is your man. From packaging to logo design, he is great at branding on many levels. From my experience there is an element of research that is involved in the design level that most designers explore but do not understand and know how to convey. Mike takes the guessing out of this. He is very quick with first designs. I am always excited when I receive one because he gives me more then I ask for. Recently Mike has either created or redone almost 30 SKU’s for Nootie all with in one months time. Do not take my word for it. You can email me for a reference and show you our new packaging he has created and compare it to our website. If your not using Mike, your wasting your time.”
