"Anita inspired me to develop a simple concept into a full brand with a line of products. She has a remarkable ability to understand the needs of her clients, not only in terms of graphic design but also from a perspective of brand development and market appeal. She added value to my brand with her originality, creative design and practical marketing ideas.
I could not have developed my business potential to where it is today without Anita's help, and I will be forever grateful to her".
"It's cost us too much in too many ways having ineffective signage, brochures and advertisements made. The "professional" graphic designers and sign makers have let us down so often we actually started doing our own design. Anita has become a crucial part of our business. She just knew who we were and what our business and brand could become.
Anita's design is to the highest professional standard, and she quickly understands our ideas and makes them work. We look forward to a prosperous and enduring relationship with Blue Bay".
"Anita took a quick verbal brief about our upcoming apartment development and turned it into a full blown marketing and advertising campaign, complete with brochures, plan folios, website, contracts, letterheads, postcards and business cards; in fact everything we needed to sell our properties off the plan. Her work is incredibly aspirational, and leaves nothing to chance. You can't help but buy what she's selling.
Her strength is that she writes persuasive copy in addition to great design and art direction. She managed every part of our campaigns, from the 3D building illustrations, to lifestyle shots and web development. We've benefited from knowing exactly what each project was going to cost up front, and we've saved thousands on what traditional agencies would charge us."
Andrew Davies, Director, Genesis Property Development, Queensland
"I have had course to use Anita Olsen and Blue Bay Design on a few occasions to assist in creating corporate proposals and marketing my objectives to some of Australia's largest companies. On each occasion Anita has come through with excellent products that haven't failed to deliver.
My company now has associations with companies that I wouldn't have been able to obtain without Anita's assistance. I have found her input to be invaluable.
I have recommended Anita to some of my associates and they also have reported great results.
I always will use Anita and her services for all my business development and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone requiring copywriting, design, brand recognition and business development."

"Every cloud has a silver lining!
Anita entered our lives on recommendation from another of her clients shortly before we opened our business. We had months of stress and frustration working with another marketing company on our corporate identity, stationery and marketing campaign In desperation we switched to Anita who understood and embraced our concept and produced a result which we are proud of. Anita has an eye for detail and her honest, hard work on our behalf make her a joy to work with."
Dr Doug Leishman, Diamond Dental Care, Sunshine Coast
