Our Clients

What Our Clients Are Saying

I am a critic of creative firms and their approaches. I’ve seen quite a few and they often reflect great creativity but not so great connection to the business and real world. DarkSquare is an exception. The brand they created for us was very well done.

John Watson, Basic Fund Board of Directors Member,
Chairman & CEO, Retired, Chevron Corporation

Dark Square took the time to thoroughly understand the concepts and vision for my brand, and present it in a high-end contemporary website that a wide audience could understand. As an artist and designer myself I have an extra critical eye, and DarkSquare surpassed my expectations.

Amy Karle, Artist and Futurist

We really appreciated DarkSquare’s efforts and guidance in helping us define our brand archetype. The outcome of InRule’s brand evolution initiative is a modern look and feel that reflects who we are and our vision for the future.

Rik Chomco, CEO of InRule Technologies

DarkSquare has helped us better understand who we are as a company and how to communicate the value we provide. They are an valuable partner to us in navigating how to talk about our offerings in the very technical and rapidly changing markets that we operate in.

Larry Katzman, CEO and President of Applied Information Technologies (AIS)

I can’t say enough about DarkSquare. I can’t imagine developing this brand and this site without them. From start to finish they were there with us every step of the way with new concepts we never would have thought of. They’re an invaluable resource and they’ve become important and closely involved members of our team.
