“The Cook County Pension Fund (CCPF) has worked regularly with Randy on projects including our quarterly PensionNotes newsletter that we send to our active and retired members, and our Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR), a public-facing summary of the more comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) we produce each year. Randy produces two different versions of the PAFR that are focused on the two respective funds CCPF comprises.
Randy’s approach to working on these projects is consistently collaborative, thoughtful, and always brimming with ideas for bringing a fresh take to these perennial communications while being mindful of our brand. Consequently, Randy always delivers on our requests of Big Fish, and then exceeds them. I believe that comes from his thoroughness in making sure he has as many details as possible on the front end: By phone, by email – he takes as much care in making sure he understands our vision as much as we do and then is incredibly communicative and responsive throughout the creative process.
Not all designers are created equal, and with Randy, I am assured of consistent high-quality in his designs, punctuality in his meeting deadlines, ease of collaboration, meaningful communication that support and advance our work on our projects, and flexibility when the project’s design needs are modified. To sum it all up, I always look forward to the next project in which we get to engage Randy’s graphic design services!”

“I've had the pleasure to work with Big Fish Graphic Design on several projects including a major website redesign. Randy was a pleasure to work with, he's professional and responsive and his work speaks for itself. He's very knowledgeable about current web technologies such as responsive design, and was able to re-purpose his designs for multiple devices. What I like best was he thinks holistically, it's not just a home page but a complete web design experience. Besides that we've used Randy for other design work and his expertise with Photoshop is astonishing, give him an idea of what you want and he will exceed your every expectation.”
