“ArtHouse continues to impress me with their work. They have a great design process that is very effective at involving us and our clients, and they always bring creative ideas to the table. Graphics and signage are an important part of the way people experience our projects, and ArtHouse always finds a way to exceed our expectations and help our projects excel.”

“ArtHouse Design has been providing creative services to Larimer Square for more than twenty years. Many of the vibrant banners, signs, awnings and other graphic materials that are such a recognizable part of this iconic property are their work. They consistently come up with fresh ideas and great looking designs.”

Joe Vostrejs, Chief Operating Officer
Larimer Associates

“We loved working with ArtHouse on our brand refresh. From start to finish they were professional, accommodating and supported us through the entire process. They were flexible with our needs and the finished product was beyond our wildest expectations. We continue to go back to ArtHouse for consultation and support and couldn’t ask for a better partner. Our new look is fresh, smart and completely meets our personality.”

Katie Groke Ellis, Marketing, Community Outreach and Communications Director
Apex Park and Recreation District

“We absolutely loved working with ArtHouse! We needed a firm that would help rally our needs together and help propose a simple, clear and beautiful plan to get all our messages across for our expanded Museum. Working with a firm that not only had amazing design skills, but that knew signage best practices, codes and rules, and the best fabrication vendors in town, was invaluable. We couldn’t have handled a project this size without them.”

Zoe Ocampo, Associate Director of Marketing and Membership
Children’s Museum of Denver Marsico Campus

“The logo is great…I’m sure it will have a good impact among our clients. I appreciate the passion and effort Marty and the team poured into the logo. It was great working with you!”

“After the great experience I had working with ArtHouse, I would never again attempt hospital wayfinding without a professional.”

Michael Goebel, Chief Operating Officer
Denver Area Hospital

“Much of the donor recognition in the hospital involves pieces of art rather than simple lists of names. We have received accolades and inquiries from colleagues around the nation about our recognition program and the ArtHouse designs supporting it.”

Holly Anderson

“I just have to say thank you. The monument signs are absolutely beautiful – better than I thought possible!! Many, many thanks for your great work and diligence working with us on this project. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you all!”

“ArtHouse Design is staffed by extraordinarily talented, creative and professional individuals who never lose sight of the main objective of a project… that is, to meet and/or exceed the customer’s expectations.”

“We are thrilled with the donor recognition signage which incorporates the themes and colors of our building, allows for additional names and stands alone as a beautiful piece of art. Your team is outstanding!”

“ArtHouse was fantastic member of the Mushrif Central Park design team, and all involved with the project appreciated their creative approach to project’s wayfinding program. We look forward to our next opportunity to collaborate with them.”

“Working with the creative staff at ArtHouse Design has been a pleasure. Our goal from the beginning has been to stand out among law firms while, at the same time, showing our collective personality. ArtHouse understands our vision and is able to translate it into great designs that receive rave reviews from both clients and colleagues alike.”

NREL’s expanding LEED platinum “Campus of the Future” has the nation’s largest net-zero energy office building. Art House created a vibrant design package for our new campus that replaced tired concrete government signs with a solar-powered monument sign for our primary entry. Now we have a 21st century signage program to match our science.”

ArtHouse was an invaluable partner guiding The Denver Film Society through a complex signage project for the Sie FilmCenter. Their design is top-notch, and they both listened to and incorporated the numerous stakeholder opinions – not an easy task. They also facilitated the permit process with the city, as well as helping us select and oversee an excellent (and affordable!) signage fabrication and installation company. The final product exceeded expectations and will surely be a long-time Denver landmark. Thank you!”

Michelle Livingston, Board Member
Denver Film Society

“1401 Lawrence, a 310,00 square foot Class AA office building is an iconic addition to the City of Denver and required signage to suit. Your team has delivered service beyond expectation in achieving this level of standard. Many designers can create nice concepts; few follow the fabrication and installation closely to ensure a quality result. The entire 1401 Lawrence team thanks you for your team’s dedication and passion to signage on this project. The end results will also serve as a showpiece of your team’s ability to produce quality results.”

Gregory Jones, Director of Development
First Gulf

“The opportunity to work with ArtHouse becomes an education in thoughtful, intelligent responses to graphic and environmental design. In the more than 15 years we have worked together they have never failed to surprise and delight our clients, whether in the design of a single logo or a full-fledged corporate marketing center. When combined with attentive customer service, they are the best design resource we have ever collaborated with and they are partners on the most important work of our firm.”
