What my clients say about me

After a few years of working with Dan at Hallmark Cards he is a very good and creative Hand Lettering Artist. He has a large variety of looks. Easy to work with, open to ideas and suggestions. He is a fast producer and has a wide range to draw from. I would recommend Dan’s expertise to anyone looking for new ideas and applications.

I’ve worked with Dan Cotton for well over a decade – so that says a lot about the quality of our relationship and Dan’s craftsmanship. A few examples of how we’ve worked together over the years:

When Cultivator Advertising and Design was challenged with coming up with a new script mark for our client, Branson, Missouri, we hired Dan to give the direction a totally custom look that would work across all marketing mediums and be proprietary for our client.

At a previous agency, I worked with Dan on a brand called Antoine Du Chez, a high end salon with several locations in Colorado. They needed a new logo that balanced elegance with flair and prestige. Dan worked with our initial concepts for the mark and then took a few days to work up sketches. He sent many options in several different styles. It was amazing seeing so much talent flow so seemingly effortlessly. We honed in on a few elements and flourishes, and ended up with a flawless script that the client loved. And when the Wyoming Tourism Department needed a new mark, we called Dan again. 

Dan is an invaluable asset. He has always been willing to help with any size project with the same enthusiasm and professionalism. He is a secret weapon (well, I guess not a secret anymore).
