What clients say about Craig Peterson
I have worked with Craig in many creative endeavours since 1984 during his time as designer at Nature & Health magazine, and later at Simply Living magazine, and then later he helped with my own publication, The Crystal Visionary, as well as various clients work that I commissioned him for design work. At all times, I have found Craig to be a good listener, responding to a brief in generous, creative offerings that clients have been delighted with. He is extremely good natured and a delight to work with.
Michael Ney - Digital Media Producer for Eagle Spirit Media & Annexium
Craig is gracious enough to always give me choice when he presents his ideas to me - sometimes several versions. He needn’t bother as I rarely go past the first one anyway! A good listener, good interpreter but subtle enough in his interpretation to give the job his own blend of ‘wow’ factor while honouring the client's tastes and preferences.

I first worked with Craig Peterson and his company Handpress Graphics in the late 1990’s. His first job for me was a logo that became one of the most seen and recognisable in Australia. Since that time Craig has worked creatively and efficiently to assist me with the visual presentation of a number of ideas and projects. He is not just a valuable graphics support he works cost effectively and stimulates my own imagination with a number of suggestions from which I pick the one or combination I like best. I recommend him to you with the highest confidence that his work will surprise and delight you.
David Ettridge, Liberty Energy Limited
I originally engaged Craig to develop a product catalogue and in the process he redesigned the company image. The result was beyond my expectations exceptionally creative, relevant, clever, sophisticated. Indeed the only problem that I encountered was deciding from the wonderful range of options presented. To say that I am delighted is an understatement. Ditto for the further work that Craig has undertaken on my behalf.
