  • I learned about Arts & Letters five years ago when my husband opened his dental office in Chicago. We needed a practice name and logo. Kathy helped us with both, plus an awning design, and did a great job. What I love about Kathy is that she gets as excited as you are about your business. She is an artist and knows her job well. She is creative and understands what your goals are, never forcing you to go simply with what she likes. When I opened my new dental office I knew who to call. Arts & Letters did a great job: business cards, direct mail postcards, exterior sign, awning design, and promotional items. The postcards are very classy. New patients say how amazed they were to see such beautiful mailer. If you don't know how to promote your company, if you are clueless, go to Kathy. She will show you the way with class.

Kathy Skobel of Arts and Letters has won over Evanston's Main Street Merchants Association with her mix of creative graphic arts talent, her sense of what makes for good visual communications, her diplomatic way of meeting disparate needs and her ability to produce beautiful work in a timely and budget conscious way. Evidence of her work is in the street directories on Main Street and Chicago Avenue and in the numerous ads our Association has run in community newspapers. She is willing to go the extra step to meet our needs and make us feel good about what we've commissioned her to do.Allan Price, President, Main Street Merchants Association, Evanston, IL

I recently opened a Pilates studio and she went above and beyond my expectations in providing a cohesive, professional and standout image for signage, logo, and marketing brochures.
