So very exciting!” 

— Beth @Maui’s Winery

“Working with Petra Weggel at Graphic Design Studio, Inc., was an absolute pleasure. Not only was she professional, creative and extremely patient, she had me engaged in the process as part of her team vs. feeling like an outsider. She consistently offered creative solutions to both design and functionality issues that presented themselves. What I appreciate most, however, was her ability to translate highly technical information.” 

— Ari Shapiro @RFP Online

“I want to express my gratitude for the outstanding job you did in designing a new logo and stationary for the Maui Scientific Research Center. You took a collection of what may have seemed disparate points that we wanted to convey, and brought them together into a clever, professional design. Moreover, the whole experience of working with you on the project was a pleasure. I will certainly be using your company again when the occasion calls and I have no reservation about recommending your services.” 

— Stuart Jefferies
@Maui Scientific Research Center

“Petra Weggel is a very astute designer with brilliant and innovative design ideas that is always grounded in fundamental principles, but takes projects to and on the edge. She always keeps well-informed and well-educated about the latest trends and techniques about web design and all technologies necessary attached with the trade. You will never be disappointed with her outstanding capabilities within world-wide-web media use as a graphic design tool for your success.” 

— Lawrence Pascua
@Studio Creative Associates

“I have known Petra professionally for twelve years. When I need graphic design work she is the first person I turn to. Petra has the imagination to create stunning designs and the photoshop and web development skills to instantiate them. Petra is easy to work with, dedicated to excellent client service and communication, and always delivers more than she promises.” 

— Michael Gibbons

“Petra proved very knowledgeable and was conversant with all of the various protocols involved. She has the technical ability as well as the design capability that we found necessary. We would definitely recommend her.” 

— Pardee Erdman @Ulupalakua Ranch

“Petra was our designer for several years and helped us create a whole new look to our corporate marketing materials. She also helped manage our web site and was always very responsive, available, and professional. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for quality, creativity, and results. Mahalo & Aloha!” 

— Randolph S. Coon, President @Trilogy Corp. 

“It was several years ago, when my partner Dave and I, afraid of cementing our reputations as blithering techno Luddites, knew we needed a web page. But how, when, what, where do these things come from??? Suffice it to say we were clueless. Enter Petra. What a delight to work with. She patiently dispossessed us of our skepticism and cynicism, educated us step by step, coddled us through bundles of dumb questions, blank stares and bad jokes. Then she produced the gorgeous graphic imagery, inserted text, drawings, renderings, photographs and even a video. The finished product is so superior we can’t imagine the firm without this electronic online presence. Once we had our web page up and operating we, of course, immediately checked out our competitors efforts. They were pathetic, I’m delighted to say.

Petra introduced us at a very high level. She is an artist who brings more than a fast computer and a plate full of techno-babble to the table. She kept telling us that our web presence would someday pay substantial dividends. That day just arrived. The firm was just commissioned to design a high-end luxury home in Wailea solely on the strength of our web presence backed up by referrals from former clients. Are we satisfied with the responsive service and unparalleled quality of Petra’s effort on our behalf? Ask me, I’ll tell you more…” 

— Jim Niess @Maui Architectural Group

“Petra was extremely efficient and helpful with my website project. She gave me an estimate and helped with making design decisions all in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Petra to anyone who needs a website designed beautifully and efficiently!” 

— Sylvia Welchel, My Daily Dosha 

“Not only does Petra deliver excellent end results she is also very easy to work with. No unexpected delays. Clear and concise communication. I have recommended her to all of my clients.” 

— Chris Schafer @University of Oregon

“I live in San Francisco. I initially hired local talent (Academy of Arts graduates) to help build my brand. I wish I had called Petra first. The combination of her artistic talent, coupled with her technical expertise, ensured the success of the project. But don’t take my word for it (or the awards she has won), take a look at her work for yourself.” 

— Michael Klotsman, Owner @Okava Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Petra on design projects as her production assistant. Petra listens carefully to her clients and creates design work that answers their business needs. She is knowledgeable about the design world and is very easy to get along with. Her attention to detail, combined with her talent and creativity produced many projects I was proud to be associated with.” 

— Norah Jackson, Owner @Roarockit Skateboard Company

“I’ve worked with Petra for several years and appreciate her work. She’s talented, creative, and always available for questions. She designed my logo, marketing material and website. I recommend her HIGHLY! ” 

— Beverly Will, Realtor

“Petra is the first web designer I know of that can maintain the quality of a print design on a website – probably because she was already a good graphic designer long before she started web design!

Anyway, terrific job.” 

— Kari McCarthy @Design Network

“I just wanted to thank you for all of the wonderful work that you did on our new website. It was so nice to work with someone who could not only make the website meet our needs and function well but also be able to achieve the “graphic look” that we wanted. I have found that many web designers do a good job with the nuts and bolts of a site but they don’t have the graphic eye that you do. What I really appreciated was that I could present an idea to you and you were able to take it a step further and make it even better. You have also made the site very user friendly on the back end so that I can upload, keyword and caption all of our own images with minimal effort. And most important, I always appreciated your positive, friendly and professional manner. It was a pleasure working with you and I have recommended you to many friends and clients. Mahalo nui loa.” 

— Sharon Dahlquist @Ron Dahlquist Photography

“I really like your Ads for the Maui Water Dept. They are eye catching and very clever.” 

— Nicole Timon Shipman @Maui Water Dept.

— Jill Engledow @Maui Island Press

“Petra has been an integral part of our web marketing team, she delivers well on deadlines and has helped our company to stay ahead of the ever-changing internet.” 

— Jurg Munch, Owner @Lahaina Grill

“Petra is very detailed and works hard to complete our workload in a timely manner. She is very professional and I would recommend her for both web design and maintenance.” 

— Allyson Mattox @The Maui Concierge Magazine

“Petra is a terrific artist and a very nice person. What more can I say?” 

— Joseph Sugarman @BluBlocker Corporation
