“ Steve excels at book cover and layout design, and has designed two of my own book covers, but that is only one small part of his repertoire. Logos, newsletter design, brochures, signage, and illustrations for corporate, small business and personal clients all have Steve’s hallmark: creativity combined with professional look.” 


Barbara Munson, Editor and ghostwriter



“ Having worked with Steve Riecks for nearly 20 years, I’m always very pleased his creativity and design expertise. I especially appreciate his familiarity with our firm, our audience and his understanding of the legal disclosure requirements of the financial services industry. The pieces Steve has created for us, which have included brochures, invitations, posters and more, have always been top notch!”
