Commendation of Amanda Lowry, Brand Strategist

Hi there, my name is John Canaris, director of Jacob’s Ladder Enterprises Pty Ltd and inventor and developer of the globally innovative and internationally patented range of ‘bow access’ boating ladders trademarked Jacob’s Ladder®.

I have been so impressed with the specialist branding services of Amanda Lowry that I feel to write and express my sincere commendation both of Amanda personally and of her exceptional skills in branding design and strategy.

Amanda’s branding strategy services were recommended to me in September 2017 by a high profile and nationally successful businessman residing within the Brisbane region. At the time of my introduction to Amanda Lowry Jacob’s Ladder Boating was a start-up business very much in its infancy, with negligible market penetration and virtually no market profile or exposure.

From the very outset Amanda’s mindset and approach was to identify herself and her branding services as being part of my Jacob’s Ladder team. I have always felt that Amanda’s considerable energies and creativity are 100% directed to seeing my business and my Jacob’s Ladder products succeed, not only locally but nationally, and even internationally, which is the recognition and initiative Jacob’s Ladder is now positively on the way to achieving.

Since partnering with Branding Strategist Amanda Lowry I now have a whole suite of impressive branding essentials (rejuvenated logo; product presentation folder; user manual; letterhead; document signature; charts and posters) which in design, creativity, colour and strategic intent are genuinely exceptional … they are second to none, conveying “class” and a quality and uniqueness of style which most pleasingly reflects the quality and innovative uniqueness of my Jacob’s Ladders!

I now move into the second phase of my brand strategy package with Amanda Lowry which includes such initiatives as website redesign, social media exposure, wider brand exposure and promotional opportunities including input to a 2018 national marine industry awards submission.

As for Amanda Lowry herself as principal of Amanda Lowry Brand Strategist, I cannot speak highly enough of Amanda’s true professionalism, and even more importantly … Amanda’s uncompromising personal integrity and honesty.

To the reader of this testimonial, I confidently and most wholeheartedly commend the services of Amanda Lowry, Brand Strategist to you … you will get far more value than what you pay for!

Sincerely, John Canaris - Jacob’s Ladder Boating

“Amanda was fantastic to deal with and knew exactly what I wanted when I approached her with the concept for my new brand. Amanda literally took the jumbled mess of ideas out of my head and created precisely what I was looking to achieve in terms of logo and branding to launch my start-up Influtta. We worked together to develop a short promotional film which was a huge success when shown as a feature at the launch party. It even brought a tear to the eye of some. For me, the film was everything I wanted and more. Amanda and Hayden are great to work with and our business relationship continues to evolve. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to boost their business through branding – whether it’s a new business or established.”

“It has been great working with Amanda to create our brand. Considering it was our first business venture, we needed a lot of guidance and Amanda listened to what we wanted and worked tirelessly to help us achieve our brand vision. We went back and forth with ideas and Amanda was very patient and accomodating. Her experience in advertising and the printing industry helped us a great deal and saved us a lot of time and running around. Hayden did a great job capturing the spirit of our business in the promotional video. His easy going personality and professionalism made this an effortless exercise for us. As a result of our positive experience and great feedback from our customers, we will definitely continue using and recommending your services to others.”

 “Amanda is an amazing designer who creates pieces of art as logos, which is why I approached her in the first place. I wasn’t entirely sure of what I wanted my brand to look like, but Amanda took creative control and came up with an initial concept I loved! She was kind enough to work with me on it until it was 100% perfect. The team are great and I love meeting and working with them, I could not be happier with the results they achieve for me and their clients.”

“I first met Amanda in 2013 through the Women in Business Group and was immediately impressed with her professionalism and vibrancy. In July of this year (2015) I took on the role of General Manager to plan and launch a new restaurant on the Gold Coast. After meeting with Amanda, I asked her to quote on the design for all the artwork. Her detailed analysis of the task at hand was superb and her quote most competitive. I immediately engaged Amanda’s services and was very happy with her dedication and willingness to support me in every way. She followed the direction I gave her and came up with great designs and suggestions for the new business. All her work was of the highest standards and always exceeded my expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending Amanda.”
