Here's what our clients are saying.

“Robert Van Nood’s work just jumps out at you. We gave him carte blanche to come up with a logo that would carry the notion of boating fun on the water combined with the rugged beauty of Georgian Bay and he nailed it. The Boating Georgian Bay website has already been changed over to the new brand and we are in the process of manufacturing a new series of hats and sports clothing with the logo."

Mercury Marine

We first met in 1986, when we had a need to offer our ‘new’ Mariner dealers an equivalent of the ‘then famous’ Mercury dealer calendars, which featured a pretty outboard powered boat each month.  Robert’s concept was to create a cartoon fishing calendar. The 1987 calendar was launched, and by 1988, Mercury dealers where requesting the same format. Here it is 19 years later, and dealers still have a steady stream of customers coming in for their ‘new’ annual edition. It is without doubt, the most successful dealer sponsored promotion we’ve ever done.


The Statistics don’t begin to describe Robert’s wonderful talents. He has what I would call “an innate sense of what must go on in the minds of animals”. From “Target Turtle” to  “Mr. Beaver”, and all the animals and fishes in between, there is always something going on in the background, and usually it takes a few moments for the viewer to notice. Robert’s ability to convey true comedy without words, gives this art a truly multi-lingual appeal.  (2005)
