"I have worked with Kerry Graham for over five years. In addition to superior design and technology skills, Kerry brings a level of professionalism that is hard to match—he delivers peace of mind to clients and supervisors alike. Over the years and through a wide range of projects, Kerry has met every challenge face on to create sharp, contemporary designs and to manage and complete small and large published products."
"In the field of graphic design, Kerry has all the bases covered. On the creative side he learns and understands his client's needs and then delivers design that is fresh and well conceived. He stays abreast of the latest technologies and utilizes them to increase his productive capabilities. He shares his experience and knowledge with his co-workers, creating strong staff support around him. Most importantly he builds a trust with the client. They know that when they work with Kerry, or the company he represents, the job will get done right. Kerry would be an asset to any organization."

"Some of the extremely wonderful things about Kerry is that he is a very talented designer, and is technically knowledgeable in areas of print, media and web production. For 20 years, MCA+ was known for its high quality work, customer care and satisfaction. For 5 years, Kerry contributed to that reputation with his abilities to manage extremely large and complex design and production projects. Our clients appreciated his dedication to deliver quality product on time!"
“Kerry is a former work colleague and business partner. His ability to produce large volumes of high-quality design are remarkable. I have worked with few designers who are as low-maintenance as he is. He is a able to quickly interpret customer input and deliver quality results-oriented marketing. He also possesses excellent project management and organization skills. If that were not enough, he is one of the most technically savvy people I know... and I know quite a few. I would definitely work with Kerry again and always look for opportunities to get him involved in my projects when it makes sense.”
“Kerry is an ingenious designer who is constantly striving to be more creative in his designs and more efficient in every task. He is easy to get along with and is clear thinking and quick-witted. I always know things are under control when Kerry is in charge.”
Nicole Baron | Production Project Manager, MCA+/Morgan-Cain & Associates
"We want to express our appreciation for all your fine work on the middle school math series. Your design is great! I thought about how the books might look at the beginning of the project. But I had no idea the books could be so colorful yet look rigorous at the same time. In my mind, what you did was outstanding! I cannot tell you how many times we said these words during the course of the project, "These books look really good! Our client should be really pleased." They were, and we were, too!
Every project depends on the combined talents of many people. Kerry, your work on the design of this program formed an integral part of making these books exceptional."
“Kerry Graham is a natural, a comprehensive expert when it comes to the development of published educational literature. Why? He is foremost a perpetual student; his approach to design springs from his personal thirst for learning, which manifests itself into effective visual communication. Form follows function to accomplish desired outcomes. It is common within the publishing industry for design to merely convey or illustrate facts to the reader, but, Kerry's work is rare in that it effectively influences and stimulates (or illuminates) the inward passion of learning for the reader. Huge difference. With Kerry, the reader gains the whole meaning.
Kerry was instrumental in developing our design department to where our advertising agency competed with many top advertising agencies in Christian outreach marketing, industrial and commercial marketing. From day one of hiring him, my stated wish to Kerry was always that, when he eventually chose to move on from our ad agency, that he'd go on to be more proficient and experienced than his peers, and with technical competence to accept ever-expanding assignments even in diverse markets. I never once doubted that he could do it."
Russ Wright | Former Executive Vice President, John Manlove Marketing & Communications
"We have had the pleasure of working with Kerry while at MCA+ over many years and on three major projects. As project manager for Strategies for Writers Kerry guided the development of a large, complicated project through design and production with care and attention to detail. He did the same for our Voices Reading Collection. Every spread in each Collection required its own, unique design treatment. We were very pleased with the results. Most recently Kerry managed the development of our Spelling Connections revision. This was a large K–6 student and teacher edition program with many design, art and photo elements. Kerry's design, production and technical proficiency were essential to building files correctly for state specific versioning and successful printing. Kerry has always been enjoyable and easy to work with. He is a proactive and collaborative problem solver."

"I had the pleasure of working with Kerry on the revision of a textbook series that was being submitted for adoption in Texas. As the size and scope of the project changed, Kerry remained cooperative, helpful, patient, and professional. His can-do attitude and creative design solutions provided our editorial team with timely, cost-effective ways to meet our goals. Kerry went above and beyond to deliver outstanding results. I recommend Kerry unequivocally; it was a great experience working with him!"

“Kerry's creative design has allowed us to break out of an old stale look. He has taken our core values and incorporated them into the design that gives a professional and pleasing look. He designed our website and many of our brochures. His designs and creative ideas breathed new life into the company. He was there through the creative conception to the delivery. I look forward to the next time I get to work with him!"
