It’s been said that one of the highest complements is recommendation by word of mouth. For 30 years under our banner of MartinRoss Design, we have earned our clients’ referrals by providing time-sensitive, budget conscious, creative graphic design and effective communications solutions. We treasure our relationships and have many long lasting friendships through our business for which we are grateful.

“Marty Skoro and Ross Rezac of MartinRoss Design patiently worked with our schedule and married text and images to create an elegant catalogue that truly evokes the riches of the Mississippi River valley in the mid-nineteenth century.”

Jason Busch, Curator
Currents of Change: Art and Life Along the Mississippi River

“MartinRoss Design brought a punchy, contemporary look to our magazine, which breathed new life into the publication while maintaining the aesthetic of our organization. I continue to appreciate their sophisticated use of humor, which reflects an understanding that “academic” and “amusing” don’t have to be mutually exclusive. They adhere strictly to a production schedule and actually help keep the rest of the production team—me included—on our toes, when we begin to falter.“

Marcy Krever, Director of Communication
American Montessori Society

“Thank you again, and congratulations, on the outstanding design and project oversight of For the Better Performance of Life’s Duties [a 208 page book celebrating the 100 year Anniversary of Dunwoody]. My conviction that you would produce a quality book was certainly warranted. I am proud of the book and I know Dunwoody insiders are too.”

With gratitude,
Ben Wright, Author
Former President
Dunwoody College of Technology

“You should certainly be proud of yourself. Your book [Baba Yaga: The Wild Witch of the East in Russian Fairy Tales] is exceptional, and nobody in the field of Russian literature or Russian folklore has ever thought of doing what you did!”

Jack Zipes, Professor Emeritus
University of Minnesota

“MartinRoss Design created a new visual identity for our full-service real estate company. This was a challenging project for the designers because they worked not only with our company as a corporate entity but also with the seven companies that we owned. Marty and Ross are excellent project managers, they listened to us and gave us a variety of concepts to choose from. The finished product shows their concern for detail and we were extremely pleased with the end result.”

Bob Angelson, Former President
Welsh Companies

“We deeply appreciated Marty and Ross’s creativity and project management skills as well as their professionalism. These skills became even more important as we approached our publication deadlines. Fitting over 500 images into 572 pages without making them impossibly small and still leave room for copy was daunting but Ross and Marty addressed this challenge in an unflappable and creative manner that produced Conversations with Wood, a catalog/coffee table book. It continues to bring us many compliments from fellow collectors as well as artists and scholars. Thank you MartinRoss for your patience, flexibility and friendship.”

Ruth and David Waterbury, Art Collectors

“We are pleased with MartinRoss Design’s capacity to think strategically, problem solve and execute a final quality product. The best part about working with Marty and Ross is they balance professionalism with a great sense of humor which makes working together both productive and enjoyable.”

“Everyone who sees the books MartinRoss Design created raves about the design. Not only am I extraordinarily pleased with their work, but I also think the world of Marty and Ross. They are the most creative and fun people I’ve met in years. We’ve done several books together and they will soon be working on the next one.”

Col. Richard Hagen, Author

“We continually received unsolicited comments from our customers about the package designs MartinRoss Design did for our products. The designs are fresh, bold and inviting. The packaging was unlike any of the other products on the market. The product may be great, but the design is what gets the customer’s initial attention.”

Pete Bissonette, President
Learning Strategies Corporation

“We came to MartinRoss Design with an idea for a unique book, some photos and copy. Working thoughtfully and respectfully with us in the beginning, they then created what is a piece of art, a beautiful tribute to an amazing man, Ernest Oberholtzer. Coordinating the project from start to finish, they utilized outside expertise as needed and brought this very special book to life. They were a delight to work with and I would enjoy another collaboration with them.”

Jean Replinger, Program Director
Oberholtzer Foundation

“Marty and Ross, you complement each other so well and you are so good at what you do. AND you are so caring and good at building relationships that last.”
