I am writing this letter regarding the qualifications of Seth Rowanwood, an artist/iinterface designer who recently worked with our firm.
Seth is a highly creative individual with a keen eye for style. We have been quite pleased with the appearance of his work – obviously, the number one characteristic for a designer – but also with the working process. He knows how to work with a team to help them define and explore the meaning and purpose of what they are doing, and can then use that knowledge effectively to help build branding concepts and specific visuals for a brand or a group of brands.
I am very particular about the look and feel of the materials that we use, and about specific aspects such as fontography. Seth has a great sense for fonts and how to use them effectively.
I look forward to the opportunity to work again with Seth on another project.
I will be happy to discuss our experiences in more detail, if desired. William Fisher
Fully knowedgable and expertly skilled as apparent from the get-go, Seth has the ability to recognize nuances and embrace the meaning of the narrative in a story-line. Forward thinking, Seth has a classy approach in translating ideas into a highly creative process which he meets with genuine passion for the craft. The end result was a truly fulfilling end product.Rezo
There is only one person I go to when it comes to branding for RawAttraction.com – logos and also our new magazine covers and that is Seth. Seth’s combination of deep knowledge about spirituality, tantra, and branding make for a potent mix when it comes to creating extremely high level design. I recommend him to all who want to level up their branding in any way.Stephen James Burford
Seth has a great talent for listening to his clients and an ability to beautifully articulate their ideas into physical design. The logo he designed for me embodies the spirit of our mission statement and the soul of the company. I am beyond grateful to have connected with him and I look forward to commissioning him again. Thanks Seth!!!
A thorough discussion of my objectives and thoughts was undertaken by Seth. I was astounded at how in sync we had become during the initial thoughts process. The resulting logo is intriguing, and has the impact that I desired. Seth’s intuitive understanding made the process a joy. We now have formed a valuable, and trusted, partnership to further develop the business identity. Mike Boylan
When I asked Seth to create the cover art for my band, Nomadica’s, debut cd, I knew he would give us something detailed, eye-catching and on schedule, but I have to say that he really outdid himself. Seth created something so stunning that it never fails to elicit an “Oh My God this is gorgeous” type of response before the person even hears the music. In Nomadica, I have the great pleasure and good fortune to work with some of the finest musicians in Canada. I am over the moon that Seth has created a such a rich and playfully mystical visual dimension to our exuberant, elegant, wild-east-meets-west sound. He really nailed it and I love sharing our recording all the more as a result! Roula Said
I registered the URL for HipGnosis.co with BlueHost and looked into building my own website with what were purported to be easy-to-use templates and drag-and-drop tools. I quickly realized the learning curve would be steep to build a “glitch-free” website but — more importantly — it dawned on me that after all the work I’d done writing an amazing book, it’d be a shame to create anything less than an equally awesome website to promote it!
So I put the word out among my friends and on social media, saying I needed a really gifted (I actually meant “genius”) artist and graphic designer to design a site for me; one that would intuitively brand my book and other media offerings, and convert casual interest into real sales and ongoing relationships with site visitors.
Seth Rowanwood (InkLight.com) was quickly recommended to me by a friend for whom he also built a beautiful website. Rowanwood created a terrific website for me for a price that was reasonable by industry standards, and included a lot of added value. Not only does the site work well, but Rowanwood intuited the true spirit of my project and translated that into a rich visual experience for my site visitors and customers.
Whether your project is simple or complex, I recommend Seth Rowanwood as an artist and website designer for anyone who wants a website that goes beyond ordinary expectations. Guy Crittenden
Seth Rowanwood, through his Inklight Design company, is a real find. Professional, intuitive, creative, skilled, he incorporates a mastery of surface presentation with attention to the inner meaning–the intention–of whatever he’s working on, whether beer, tech or music. He gets work done on time and looks out for the interests of his clients by paying attention to the details of the work, from beginning to end. He also has no problem taking a contrary point of view if he believes it will serve his clients best, but is completely adaptable once a firm decision has been made. I have seen his work with my wife’s work as a teacher and performer over a number of years, and have worked directly with Seth on the design for two recordings. With all of these projects he has provided high quality work that has represented each in a very organic and, let’s say” “true” way, capturing something of the uniqueness and inner spirit of the work. But I have to say that his most recent work, on the “Conversation of the Birds” CD from my Odessa/Havana project, reached a level I’m happy to call “inspired”, and the consistent reaction from fans and industry folks alike have encompassed real kudos and delight in his work.David Buchbinder
I would not hesitate to hire him again when the opportunity arises.

The subsequent logo has been used for the past 18 years as an effective brand for our business. Business cards, stickers, t shirts on-line marketing, print advertising….this branding has been successfully applied to all.
Now in 2016 we are gearing up to move our shop to a new location on James St. North in Hamilton. We once again approached Inklight to re-work our logo. Maintaining the same lotus design that has come to represent our business, it has been updated with a new colour scheme and classy, streamlined background effects. We were provided with multiple versions of the new brand concept that we could compare. This allowed for an effortless decision making process.
Inklight redesigned the lettering for our new sign keeping within the same concept of our original font but elevating it to a much more dynamic and effective brand. We were also furnished with a beautiful mock-up of the sign concept with the updated font/lettering. Upon presenting this to the sign maker, we were told it was perfect from a design perspective and required no modifications whatsoever. He happily took on the job and will be able to produce our sign quickly because the design work is done.
Our experience with Inklight on both occasions has been exceptional. Designs were presented to us in a timely manner in a format that made it easy to envision the finished product. We look forward to sharing our updated logo and amazing new sign with our clients, our city and our friends. Thanks Inklight! Yolanda & Andrew
