Earlier this year, we decided our health and wellness business needed an overhaul. It didn’t take much in the way of contemplation for us to choose Seth Rowanwood at Inklight – we were already familiar with his formidable skills in graphic design, and needed someone who could manage both our rebranding and the redesign of our website.
Starting with in-person meetings and a comprehensive workbook to assist us in better understanding key aspects of our business, Seth was attentive in guiding us through an organic process of rediscovering ourselves and the unique services we provide to our clientele. Using our feedback and keeping open communication with us through every step of the process, he conceived our new logo, new website and related promotional material, providing us with an authentic reflection of who we are and what we offer. Questions were answered in a timely manner, and afterward we were given the support needed to help manage the day-to-day maintenance of our new site.
We’ll easily recommend Seth to anyone seeking to create, retool or remodel their brand. His knowledge, professionalism, courteousness and understanding make Inklight a standout in the field.Ian Elliott
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
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
When my website and logo needed revamping, I was happy to have the opportunity to have Seth work his magic and make my existing “nice” logo into a logo that is, in my opinion, really beautiful and caught my eye/heart the first time I saw it.
I appreciated that Seth took to heart my wants and values and reflected them into my website and logo. If I didn’t like a picture or how something looked, Seth and I were able to find a solution that worked for the design of the website and for my peace of mind/preferences.
Focus on what you want/value and Seth will most likely be able to work with you to make it happen. Mary Anne Patterson
Working with Seth, his graphic design skills are boundless. He can certainly deliver on any design and maintain the look and feel for a brand. However, there is far more than design that one offers as a brand strategist.
Seth’s wisdom, market and technology insights inspire solutions to brand objectives and this is where he delivers the most value for expertise.
At Zymonetics, we value Inklight as an asset to our brand and engage him in consulting on all aspects of our health technology portfolio. Tesla La Touche
I would not hesitate to hire him again when the opportunity arises.

I’ve admired Seth’s designs for years so when I needed a re-brand, I hired someone I could trust to build my very first online portfolio. The project required a new logo design, business cards, website, and a downloadable resume.
Seth was patient with my process as we developed one of the largest sites he’s ever built with close to 50 pages of content. Now I have a slick website to send potential clients to view video clips of relevant projects thus making networking that much easier.
I met Seth at a time when all my life work was beginning to make sense and the crystallization of my spirits vision was taking place. I was desperately looking for a multifaceted graphics designer, specifically one with a heart , whom can see and feel my vision…. An artist that I could roll with into my years to come in the fulfilment of the 7 7 7 vision and of operating a artistic merchandise business that supports global children’s initiatives.
Upon working with Seth the first time I immediately witnessed the sheer dedication of knowledge and application built upon years of effort in the field of graphics. Even being a film editor myself of ten years pus I was simply astound in the way Seth with unmatched confidence navigated his desktop interface like a interstellar starship. At several points during Seth’s execution of certain elements in our sessions I naturally had broken into outbursts of laughter when I seen just how clean, effectively and fast he was able generated results that I was more then happy with, to say at the very least.
All in all I had a great time working and collaborating with Seth , he has helped and is willing to bring my life vision to come to pass through his amazing skills and expertise in bringing a brand together. I have never been this happy working with a graphics artist in my ten years in the entertainment / media industry. Im very pleased.
Better then I can ever expect.

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
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!!!
