I have had the privilege of working with Claudia Beck for two years. She has provided me with fantastic custom logos and an entire automated affiliate program web presence.
Her artistic ability is amazing and her grasp of the complexities of web design, web graphics and advanced web applications is impressive.
Claudia is a joy to work with; she is prompt, courteous and skilled in creative problem-solving. It is very unusual to find someone whose creative and graphic talents are equal to their

Sunflowers and Seagulls is a professionally run service with a very smart lady directing the show. I always have gotten exactly what I want, and have seen artwork and effort put in, unlike many even larger organizations.
Claudia has always shown a high degree of professionalism, and understanding of what her clients wants were and has been able to balance that to what the true needs are to get something that works, at the right price. A sensitive balance for most, and
reliably achieved here.

Claudia designed my traffic exchange website from beginning to end. The graphics were exceptional, showing what we were all about before reading any of our content. She did a couple adjustments I needed and never took over the time stated.
When I decided I needed a specialty script wrote for a specific area after the adjustments, Claudia pulled through with a wonderful script for a fraction of the cost other companies asked. When the script she wrote was delivered, she spent time with me to make sure I knew how to use it properly.
If you want a professional 'top-notch' website, Claudia aka Sunflowers and Seagulls Promotional Services should be the first designer you contact.
You're needs will be met by this company!

It was a pleasure working with Claudia from the beginning. She was very helpful I changed a few things which she did with out any hassles. It was all very professional and friendly. I would recommend her to anyone.
Vivienne Broude, African Flavors
Claudia did my graphic design work for ads I sold. She completed the ones I emailed her within one day and all my clients loved her work and approved ad with only one advertiser changing anything on ad.
I gave five stars for her work and for her communications and I will use her for all graphic design projects I have and recommend her to all who ask.
Bob Domingos, Bob Domingos Marketing
Our decision to hire Claudia for our newsletter layout and
design was the single best move we made in our first year of business!
Claudia always went above and beyond our expectations so our newsletters looked top-notch. Although she was in charge of layout and designing our ads, Claudia also proofed our content for errors. So, we were able to avoid re-prints and other costly mishaps that are prevalent in the newsletter business.
The ads she put together for us were spectacular enough that it was not uncommon for an advertiser to request the use of them in other mediums.
I've recommended Claudia to other businesses for a variety of work and I've heard nothing but rave reviews with her work.
For top-notch, error free design work I'll hire Claudia EVERY

Claudia - Just wanted to tell you again what a great job you did on everything for the promotion of the Business Expo.
I think it was a huge success and that you had a large part in that success with your wonderful graphics.
I didn't get a chance to talk with any of the other vendors much because we were so busy with potentials, but I was truly impressed with all of the people that came and how interested they seemed.
Thanks for all your help with the design of my own Expo materials as well.
Susan Kline, Editor, The Brighton Buzz
I wanted to thank you again for the beautiful ad you created for me and tell you about my great results since placing my ad on your Today’s Woman Pages web site.
Last month, before I placed my ad with you I had only 6 hits on my web site. After my ad appeared this month, I had 60 hits to my web site! I am estimating that about 1/3 of the people came to me directly from my ad on your site.
Someone else found me from an online search of Natural Skin Care products and plans to join my team. My exposure on your site helped her to locate me. This is another added benefit of being part of Today’s Woman Pages.
Thank you for making such a positive impact on my business. I am so happy I found you!

History De Dicto Locale
Originally from the East Coast of the United States, I grew up on the ocean and always thought it so dreamy to hear the waves crashing on the shoreline while the seagulls soared above my head screaming and crying to each other — about what? Fish? Humans? Their view maybe — from way up high!
Now, many years later I reside on the landlocked high plains of Colorado. Who would have ever thought, way up here in this high plains desert at an altitude of 5,020 ft., where my wide open views are now the Rocky Mountains to the West and vast farm fields to the East that I would still be hearing my beloved and curious Seagulls!?!?
Thus is my inspiration from this God given lovely new environment for the theme of my design studio. Fantastic things do happen here — inside and out!
During childhood, my household was filled with art and fascination as my British Mum was a fine artist herself and a lover of archeology, mythology and science fiction to boot.
My dad was always into “projects” from carving miniature totems in logs, to staining & varnishing awesome gnarled sticks, photographing anything & everything, and collecting the most awesome African and South American masks. So it stands to reason that I loved to draw, paint, create and photograph just about anything every waking hour of my life.
So when college time came around and I announced I was going to study fine art, my loving, imaginative but also level headed NASA Engineer father basically said “not!” — :( — So my parents kindly introduced me to the then coined career field of “Commercial Art”. It was an archaic time for the field as we did not have these fantastic computers and awesome software to simplify our lives like we do now.
But somehow I managed to struggle through it. And somehow I also managed to bend the rules like all designers are so talented at — after all —that is part of our job description. How else can we be the creative individuals that we are? Thus I majored in Illustration with a minor in Commercial Art.
Since we all know, a love of something doesn’t pay our bills. And, starting out as a “freelance” anything is quite a financial struggle. I have, therefore, spent my entire career not as an Illustrator, but as a Graphic Designer with a quite handy skill of being able to produce all of my needed illustrations, be it clip art style or elaborate detailed work. I also, due to my love and skill of Photography (thanx! Dad), I am able to use my own photos for my design and illustration needs as well.
Yes, I am very thankful to my mom’s fine art heart, my dad’s reality check + creative ingenuity, my evasiveness and Apple Computers, to have gotten me where I am now as a business owner providing unique and effective products to help other business owners build and grow their dreams and companies.
Most of all, I thank God for my gifts of family, talent and ambition!
