We Love What We Do – And It Shows

“We had a fantastic experience working with Mark and his team at Design for Good. From the outset, they really understood our goals and took the time to get to know us as an organization. Mark was great to work with and made sure that the entire process was collaborative (and fun) the whole way through. We were thrilled with the concepts that they presented, and how they brought our vision to life. Since launching our site, we’ve continued to get great feedback from our coaches and other sport organizations. We would absolutely recommend Mark and the Design for Good team, and we hope to work with them again in the future.”
Sarah, Coaches Ontario

“Working with Design for Good was an absolute pleasure. The organization I was with was largely tech-averse. There was a serious need not only for an overhaul of the website but for the entire approach from branding to messaging to online giving. Mark asked clear questions to ascertain not only who we were, what our mission was and what we thought we wanted but also to attain knowledge of what we really needed to tell our story and move the organization forward. From conception through to the final launch of the site, Mark and his team worked with us patiently, graciously and efficiently. They accommodated every idea that was feasible and worth exploring and, importantly, without being condescending in any way, were honest in letting us know what might not work or be necessary and how they could cause end-user hurdles. They were not just a vendor providing a web design service, they were a true partner in bringing the organization into the modern age and advancing our cause.

If you need a new website or design help, connect with Mark. He’s knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I’ll definitely use their services again should the opportunity arise.

“From the moment I looked through Design for Good’s website I knew they were a company worth getting in touch with. Our website was tired and not user-friendly, we needed a freshen-up. Our first conversation with Mark from Design for Good sold us on their services and we were excited to begin designing a new site for our organization. The entire process from start to finish was quite easy, especially considering we didn’t have experience in building a website before. Mark was very helpful in guiding us through each stage- planning, content writing, editing, etc. They provided helpful tutorials on how to edit and add to our site. They were easy to get ahold of if questions came up and quick to respond to emails. Most of all, we LOVE the finished product. Our new site is creative, appealing, and very user-friendly. We are extremely happy with it and are proud to share it with our organization’s supporters and the general public. We would recommend Design for Good to anyone!

Amanda, WOW Missions

“Mark took the time to listen to our goals, our vision and our expectations, and then laid out a practical plan on how to achieve our concept. Their friendly professionalism was appreciated throughout the process and they believed in our concept while giving practical alternative ideas along the way. Our website is a perfect reflection of our store, values and community. We look forward to working on more projects with them in the future.”
Sarah, The Big Carrot

“We were extremely pleased with the results of our latest energy report. Working with thematic ideas we supplied, they produced multiple cover design and layout options – all of them great and several fit our needs so well that it made it difficult to choose among them. They also added value to our publications by suggesting the inclusion of QR scan codes linking to video presentations and producing an e-book version that has helped get our message out to readers.”
Martin, Environmental Commissioner of Ontario

“We love our new website! They have a keen eye for creative, fresh looks and a great sense of what their clients are looking for in a design. They were able to capture that exact kind of mood we wanted in the very first draft. Excellent service and excellent product. We highly recommend.”
Mark, Red Door Shelter

“We are so eternally grateful – our membership went crazy (in a good way) when they saw the logo. You’ve done an amazing job and we couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect. You really heard us and that was so important to our branding. We’re over the moon!”

“The Canadian Women’s Foundation has been thrilled to work with the extraordinary team at Agents of Good to launch our new website on time, on budget and with great success. They exceeded our expectations and have now become an important strategic partner for our many other marketing and fundraising efforts. The agents excel at listening, creative conceptualization, project management and championing the donor in every solution.”
Sarah & Sandra, Canadian Women’s Foundation

“Our initial meetings were enjoyable, they made good recommendations and walked us through very well-designed ideas that go well with our theme. Working with Design for Good was a wonderful experience. Communication and turnaround time was amazing and the request was delivered perfectly. I would definitely work with them again.”
Maria, Environmental Commissioner of Ontario

“The Design for Good team re-branded and designed a beautiful and functional website for us – and one that is easy for us to manage on the backend. We really enjoyed working with the team and greatly appreciated their patience, attentiveness and custom tweaks to our various requests and questions.”
Sarah, Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario

“I cannot say enough about Mark Haak and his team at Design for Good. When the Garden Club of Toronto decided to update our logo, Mark guided us through the process with patience and professionalism. We are a 75-year-old charitable organization with 300 members, many of whom were very attached to our traditional brand. Mark’s team understood these dynamics and provided us with several clever and creative modifications of our old logo that gradually brought us to a new, modern and dynamic look that the entire Club embraced. I highly recommend Design for Good.”
Darlene, Garden Club of Toronto

“Design for Good delivered on what was outlined in our creative brief, was flexible and met our launch deadline. I appreciate working with an agency that listens to their client’s needs and aspirations, and translates it creatively. I also respect that you’re willing to challenge your client by presenting options via great ideas and solutions – something I always look for as a mark of a solid agency.”
Nekeisha, Conservation Ontario

“I was initially struck by Design for Good’s online portfolio and how each brand had its own unique creative identity. They did not disappoint and we are extremely happy with our new branding for our agency. We’ve had glowing remarks on how professional, friendly and confident our new brand is. It also encapsulates core elements of our mission to work in a diverse community and with others to provide support. Going through Mark was probably one of the best decisions we’ve made. Although I’m slightly biased, I can’t help thinking we have one of the better brands in our sector now. Working with Mark himself was painless and efficient. He was always professional and timely in the project. He showed enthusiasm in his work and sometimes went beyond what was asked of him to help us reach our goal.”
Tim, West Toronto Support Services

“The Design for Good team was phenomenal to work with. They were patient, supportive and informative surpassing our expectations. This project was a challenging one and their team helped us overcome those obstacles with professionalism and respect. They understood our brand’s needs, our client’s needs and helped us to create a website that would communicate our story to several audiences effectively. I highly recommend Design for Good to anyone looking for web and graphic design support.”
Teneile, PTP Adult Learning and Employment Services

“Never has the process of creating a new website gone so smoothly or been so enjoyable before. Throughout the process, cost-effectiveness and quality were strived for and the team was always friendly, professional and willing to help. I would highly recommend Design for Good!”
Lianne, Future Possibilities for Kids

“Design for Good came highly recommended and has proven worthy of that praise. They matched design to business needs, and drastically improved workflows and content management. I applaud them for their fluid communication and willingness to go above and beyond. We are truly delighted.
Erin, Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

“Mark has created our website, all our marketing collateral, and subsequently designed my book. He “got” who we were and how we were positioning ourselves in the market and he came up with ingenious ideas that we incorporated. Deliverables and milestones were always on time. His relaxed persona translates to confidence in what he does – and put us at ease. Mark has got it figured out. He works with whom he wants to work with – and you should be so lucky!”

“I was fortunate to read about and meet Mark back in 2008 and spotted a kindred spirit! Mark and Design for Good have been valuable partners in our work to do GOOD in this world. He collaborates with Agents of Good to create memorable, functional, strategic and creative websites for our clients. We (and our clients) are terribly fortunate to have him as part of our team.”
John, Agents of Good

“Mark understands the concept of differentiation and they execute with superb attention to detail. They create a product that blends experience with the client’s vision – rather than a cookie-cutter approach. They design highly functional, creative websites with a sound knowledge of state-of-the-art practices. I highly recommend this team.”
David, Carna4 Inc.

“Mark is an unbelievable logo designer. I am so beyond grateful for his help and what he created for me. Not only is Mark an amazing soul with a very calming energy, he is also an absolute creative genius at what he does. The logo he created for me so accurately captured the essence and energy of my business that I cried the first time I saw it – it totally moved me. I don’t believe anyone else would have been able to do for me what he did. Mark is an absolute pleasure to work with and I will 100% utilize his services in the future should I need any design work. Cannot recommend him highly enough.”
Devorah Malka, Sacred Healing Coach

“Mark and the team at Design for Good were extremely easy to work with and produced high-quality, creative work that resonated with us and our audience. They were responsive, flexible and ready to help us with everything the project needed.”
