what they say...
We love to toot our own horn when it comes to our abilities, but thankfully we don’t always have to (as our clients are always willing to do it for us). Please see what the buzz is below.
lowercase productions has helped put us on the map! We've been working with David and his team for a couple of years now and they consistently impress with their creativity, their ability to work with community groups, and their skill in making good design AND function work together. We have given them some challenging assignments and they have created products with a lasting impact. The agency logo they created for us still generates a "wow", and our most recent project, the development of a walking map, small enough to fit in a back pocket, but large enough to read and be functional is just what we needed! They also consistently meet deadlines and are an absolute joy to work with!
Andrea Aiello Executive Director Castro/Upper Market Community Benefit District
lowercase productions (lcp) is more than just a smart, creative graphic design team; it’s like working with a team of artists, strategists, architects, and urban place-makers. Since 2006, lcp has worked with our organization and the community to develop a positive image and brand for San Francisco’s Central Market district while visually distancing the neighborhood from its former negative identity. Through top-notch, distinct, and creative solutions, David and his team have helped us help the public to re-imagine Central Market and to convey the message that this once-neglected neighborhood is worthy of identification, reconsideration and investment.
Daniel Hurtado (Former) Executive Director Central Market Community Benefit District
The signage designed by lowercase productions is a crucial strand that unifies and enlivens the Recycling and Environmental Resource Center. Making our Center more user-friendly and our programs intuitive, inspiring and inviting were key project goals that were met and exceeded with the design vision and support of lowercase productions. Although small, our Center's signage is complex as it includes wayfinding, rules, material and interpretive elements. David is a great partner who continually is willing to listen and add-value to your ideas. David not only stuck with us through the design and construction process, but continues to be passionate about our goals and is a great partner as our Center and programs grow and evolve.
Melanie Mintz Environmental Services Division Manager City of El Cerrito, CA
lowercase productions was instrumental in assisting the City of Vallejo in developing a name, logo, and “brand” for the City’s long-range planning initiatives, consisting of the city’s general plan update, zoning code update, and Sonoma Blvd specific plan. Under David’s leadership, lowercase productions systematically walked the City through a brainstorming, development, and refinement process, resulting in a simple, compelling logo – Propel Vallejo – that conveys the City’s forward momentum. The City uses the logo, and its distinctive chevrons, on all City communiques and presentations, letting the general public, city staff, and elected officials know which of the planning initiatives is the current focus of attention.
Mark Hoffheimer Planning Coordinator City of Vallejo, CA
David and his team did an excellent job capturing the look and feel that we were trying to achieve for our project. Their expertise extended past the technical details and included an understanding of how to interpret the complex code requirements we faced. lowercase productions is a true go-to group.
Kent Borowick Chief Operating Officer/Chief Financial Officer Leaders in Community Action
If you need a creative solution, lowercase productions provides the thoughtful process and “killer” creative end result you need.  lowercase starts with a creative brief and then moves quickly to creative concepts in pencil which make it easy to review, discuss and ultimately decide on a creative direction. If you have time for the creative juices to flourish and flow great, but even if you don’t lowercase delivers great work. David is attentive and mindful of clients priorities and needs and follows through beautifully. lowercase created  new materials for a public event which needed exactly what they delivered, colorful, impactful and memorable graphics which grabbed you as you.
Debra Nieman Project Coordinator MJM Managament
Being a neophyte in the technology world I relied on David's expertise to develop an interesting, easy to navigate, easy to manage website for Market Street Association.  David's work made my job of communicating to multiple constituents and community groups easy and effective. If I have problems or issues or just questions David is there to help me through it. This is essential to me as a small business.
Carolyn Diamond Executive Director Market Street Association
lowercase productions played a key role in the development of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission’s Vital Signs website, leading design work, managing stakeholder charrettes, and coordinating various sub-consultants to deliver a high-quality product. The lowercase team delivered a clean, crisp, and modern design from scratch that generated widespread praise from the public, key stakeholders, and elected officials. In particular, Daniel Reider successfully coordinated across a number of sub-consultants to help MTC complete the project under a compressed timetable and within the defined budget. I would certainly recommend lowercase to other public agencies looking to revamp their overall website or build a brand-new microsite.
Dave Vautin Senior Transportation Planner/Analyst Metropolitan Transportation Commission
If you’re looking for a smart, creative, and dynamic firm to help your company improve branding, messaging and identification – lowercase productions is the dream team to give you amazing results! The Port of San Francisco had a specific problem with branding our diverse port. lcp, carefully listened, put their creative magic to work, and helped the Port resolve its branding issues. We are very appreciative of lcp’s excellent work and ingenious talent. The Port of San Francisco will surely call upon them again.
Renée Dunn Martin Manager, Public Relations Port of San Francisco
David from lowercase productions is one of the strongest members of the Gross Receipts Tax Outreach team. David came on board our project in September, and was able to create an eye-catching iconic logo, one that easily transitions for a variety of media uses. His easy going way and gentle manner is what makes him an asset to the team. He brings a high level of professionalism and a good sense of humor to our meetings. Our project is constantly changing and has new needs each day, and David makes the edits and changes in a timely manner, which keeps our project on track. He is always able to gain consensus with the team in a positive way, but more importantly he has the ability to take a very complex subject matter and turn it into collateral material that is easy to read and comprehend.
Marianne Thompson Project Coordinator SF Mayors Office of Workforce and Economic Development
The lowercase productions team has been a critical partner to San Francisco Botanical Garden for almost 10 years and has helped transform the Garden experience and more than double visitation. From creating a new wayfinding system to establishing a contemporary brand and so much more we simply would not be where we are today without them.
Brendan Lange Director of Visitor Experience and Marketing San Francisco Botanical Garden Society
Working with Dan and his team to develop a final report design was a pleasure. Communication was clear and timely, and each deliverable exceeded our expectations. We're delighted with the final product.
Sarah Fine Transportation Planner San Francisco County Transportation Authority
We have a long, proud history as one of San Francisco's oldest municipal agencies, but wanted a new brand identity to better reflect the diversity of who we are and what we do in the 21st century. lowercase productions got us to that point. Today, we not only have a dynamic new logo but also a new narrative on how we present ourselves to our staff, partners and constituents. The rebranding process was thorough -- from initial analysis to final design. The lowercase team helped us get over the fear of change, listened to our needs, offered expert counsel and demonstrated a willingness to work with us to revise the concept until we reached that aha moment.
Rachel Gordon Director of Communications and Public Affairs San Francisco Public Works
A client approached us with a tough ask—to lead and execute a wide-ranging outreach plan ahead of a groundbreaking that was less than 4 weeks away. The task was all the more daunting because the project had no brand, logo, or visual identity. David and the team at lcp swung into action. Working with the competing deadlines of client reviews, website and social media publishing dates, and printing cycles for outreach collateral, David expertly handed them all. His quick, excellent work gave our client a wide range of approaches and identities to pick from and enabled us to hit every deadline, making everyone feel and look good in the process.

Peter Lauterborn Project Manager (Civic Edge Consutling) Water Emergency Transportation Authority
Our architectural firm is not big enough for a full marketing department. But when we discovered David Schellinger and the wonderful designers at Lower Case Productions, we suddenly had all the marketing brain power and independent creativity we had been craving. We rely on David’s quick grasp of a problem, his visual and information design advice, and his memorable graphics. Our clients like lcp’s clear presentation of often complex design and management steps. You will find David and his designers a great group to work with. Especially important is that they stay with you for every wee-hour deadline-crunching deadline. To say “We couldn’t do it without him!” is the biggest understatement of all.
Ron Case and Carolynn Abst Co-Founders Case+Abst Architects
I can still remember my first impression of David Schellinger. A few years ago, I sat in the audience where he was giving a presentation on Branding. I was impressed with David’s creativity, energy, and passion for his craft. I also appreciated his clean and clear way of communicating ideas. Since then, David has become our trusted partner. He works with and for us, delivering high quality work product every time. We have engaged David for a variety projects. He recently designed an impressive looking custom proposal, in which he designed a unique submittal and complicated organizational chart that clearly conveyed our team approach. He has created compelling graphics for a major design competition we were involved in (and ended up winning). We are confident in using David for our information design needs.
Julie Satterwhite (Former) Chief Marketing Officer Mazzetti
David, at lowercase production is a joy to work with. He is able to handle the most difficult clients and stay within his budget and has always performed pass my expectations. David comes up with extremely fresh ideas.  My clients are so pleased and overwhelmed at every presentation David gives.  He is able to tell a story and make a presentation like no other. He makes our projects look great! His commitment to design, communication and color composition is so refreshing. He is well liked by all his colleagues; both of whom appreciate his great sense of humor and conscientious work ethics.  David and his team of graphic designers has the technical skills and demeanor to succeed at any level. I have no hesitation to recommend lowercase productions on any communications project. I use and recommend  David as much as I can, since he always produces a great product and makes my life so much better.
Cynthia Gee Principal Nichols Booth
Our architectural firm seeks out David Schellinger, of lcp, when we want the most creative thinking and idea generation for the identity and branding of our projects, both for public as well as private clients. Not only does David bring a graphic design sensibility that is fresh, holistic, and clever, he also brings contagious design energy to every team.  Our clients have been so pleased with David's signage  design and it is so integral to the success of our projects. 
Janet Tam Founding Principal Noll&Tam
If you want to communicate and hit the perfect tone for your audience, lowercase productions is who you want by your side. In more than a decade of working with David Schellinger on information design projects -- from 100 -page books to wall-size display boards to project branding on the web -- I have never been disappointed and have never seen a solution that didn’t have its roots in the special characteristics of that place or that client. Beauty, focus, powerful clarity of content, and humor are signature characteristics of the work at lowercase productions – and bring us coming back for more.
Karen Alschuler Principal Perkins+Will (SMWM)
lcp helped PYATOK realize a new brand identity and subsequent website design that brought us into this century and we are internally grateful. Our logo, business package and website had not been upgraded in over a decade. They lead us through a seamless process to develop a logo and business package that was reflective of our current culture. Our business card alone is unique and has become a great conversation piece when passed out to colleagues. In addition, the design will be timeless through the years and we strongly feel we got our monies worth. Our new website is great and very easy to manage, which was an ongoing issue with the old site. The design achieves the goals of appropriately showcasing our projects, team, and relevant news. We are constantly receiving compliments for our new look and when it comes time to update again we will certainly look to lcp for their help and expertise.
Jennifer Pechacek Communications Director Pyatok
When I started my urban planning consulting firm, I contacted (David) lowercase productions for help creating a brand and identity.  In short order, David designed my entire “look” including my logo, business cards, web site and marketing/communications templates.  David, was fast, efficient and very easy to work with. Best of all, I continue to get compliments that my brand is the best in the business. I have continued to work with lowercase productions on a variety of graphic design projects, including reports, posters and document templates. I am constantly impressed with all of the staff and I would highly recommend the firm to anyone.
Matt Raimi Founder and President Raimi & Associates
As a relatively small architectural firm we were ecstatic when we were shortlisted on a design competition against the big boys and absolutely terrified that we were way out of our league. We had great ideas but no framework by which to organize and present them. Enter David Schellinger. At our first meeting and in a matter of moments, David had our presentation outlined and storyboarded. Then with great patience and energy, and on a very tight schedule, he directed us through the steps by listening and thoughtfully applying his lightening fast graphic, communication AND urban design skills to our particular needs. Our submittal was clear, organized, compelling and right in there with the big boys, thanks in great part to lowercase productions.
Susi Marzuola Principal Seigel & Strain
I have worked with David and lowercase productions for many years. LPC created our brand, developed our website, and have helped tremendously with our marketing. lowercase productions has a direct approach that is clean and effective and has a creative flair that doesn’t obscure the message.  I look forward to working with David and his team for many years to come.
Shannon Hackley Founder, President Shannon Hackley Associates
If all my potential clients could see was a business card, or the website, or a brochure, I believe they would be impressed. David has the most unique and incredible way of communicating with his vision of color and design. He looks at all projects as ongoing, he prepares you for now and later, he knows what he knows and has the rare and fresh desire to share it with you. My company's personality coupled with my own reflects how he approached designing for Stallworth Enterprises. It has been an amazing experience working with David, he helped me get out of my comfort zone to grow beyond what I could have ever visualized.
Rachel Stallworth Owner Stallworth Enterprises
lowercase productions (lcp) has an amazing and unique process of getting to know us and what we are looking for. Because of David & his team’s architectural background, their work is meticulous and flawless. It comes naturally to them to understand our message, to re-design our identity, and to work individually with each leader and their thought processes. lcp listens and implements our ideas clearly and coherently; they also strive to meet our exigent deadlines. I’ve known David over the years and could not think of anyone else I’d recommend to provide the beautiful, intuitive, and stunning end products that he currently and confidently designs for us.
Carolina Dratva (Former) Marketing Director Steinberg Architects
We have just undergone a crucial, intensive, 18-month rebranding process.  David was simply remarkable in his ability to introduce and facilitate a clear, methodical process that allowed us to fully realize and establish the new face of our firm (website, logo, tagline, and tools).  The evolution and discovery process was transformational for our internal TEEm, and I trust it will radically improve the way in which we are perceived as a brand moving forward.  David is über professional, remarkably creative, and has an eye for graphic brilliance that transcends language and gets to the heart…  Amazing.  Thank you David!
Laurel Leigh Taylor (Former) Executive Vice President TEECOM
As one of David's earliest clients, I have come to rely on his expertise and his ability to maintain identity and brand continuity in an environment where small businesses change rapidly. Cohn Bernard Architecture and Virtual Practice Consulting each required identities reflecting the evolving nature of architecture and management consulting. Over the last five years, David has successfully developed a clear visual connection between the identities of two companies. His services are specifically tailored to the needs and budgets of the small business. He encourages collaboration, which makes him a delight to work with. He is responsible for managing the effort which resulted in our successful brand and identity - both in print and on the Web.
Michael Bernard Principal Vitrual Practice
David Schellinger guided us through the branding and website process like a mountain trek guide; keeping us on the right path, pointing in the right direction, making sure that at the end of the journey, we still had the ability to make changes ourselves. I would highly recommend David to anyone looking for branding help.
Paul Stier Principal Young Office Solutions
I have had a professional relationship with David and lcp for almost 15 years.  I keep going back to David because he is uniquely able to distill thought, strategy, and design into a visual realm that supports branding, marketing and business development, graphic design, and communications.  His work is fun, thought provoking, unexpected, and most importantly, clear.  He is extremely bright, creative, intuitive and a lot of fun to work with.  Now that I am in business for myself I wouldn’t trust this work to anyone else.

Daniel Cheetham Founder fyoog
lcp worked with us from start to finish to build a brand identity and help define who we are as a company, and where we wanted to go.   As a brand new concept in management consulting for "the business of the environment" 2020 Environmental Group had a vision, a mission, and a market.  But lcp helped us to take a step back and view ourselves from the outside looking in.  We then used this insight to fine-tune our message and external communications strategy, particularly to a clientele not used to using management and PR consultants.  David and lcp rounded out that message by creating a website and logo that visually reflects 2020 as a company, and who we are as people.  We're off and rolling, thanks in large part to David and lcp.
Dan Spiers Vice President 2020 Envrionmental Group
We were just starting our company and knew that our brand and strategy would be key to our credibility.  LCP and David did an amazing job at guiding us through the conversation to figure out exactly what success looks like for us and how best to present that in the branding and strategy of our company.  David gave solid guidance that facilitated numerous ideas for the business and helped us pick the name for our company.  We strongly recommend David and his team to any size company.
Michael Rowell Co-Founder Assurance
It is a joy to work with David and we are delighted with lcp's work. David understands our bank's vision and our entrepreneurial spirit. Working in concert with Barbary Coast Consulting, lcp has graphically captured our bank's contemporary brand. This is articulated in lcp's design work on our website, marketing materials, signage and new identity suite. David is indeed Bank of San Francisco's trusted advisor for branding and graphics communications!
Ed Obuchowski President, CFO Bank of San Francisco
Over the last few years, Barbary Coast has not only engaged lowercase productions to design websites, logos, and marketing materials for some of our most valued clients, we’ve worked with David and his team on a redesign of our own website and graphic identity as well. The work we perform is complex and we’re a bunch of perfectionists – making David’s challenge to re-envision our web presence a formidable one. After designing and building our new site in the absolutely unreasonable timeframe we demanded (and over the 2009 Christmas holiday, nonetheless), we now have a web presence that accurately portrays who we are and what we do. It’s a platform for us to showcase the breadth of our experience, our talented team, and why the work that we do matters to the public. By designing an easy-to-use administrative interface and creating the right site structure, we’ve been able to capitalize on the regular media mentions of our firm and those of our clients – the best marketing there is. Our relationship with lowercase productions is one that we hope to continue for many years to come. And while we cannot recommend David’s work highly enough, we secretly hope that no one else will learn about his incredible talents and value so that we may never have to compete for his attention!
Alexis Ward Smith Vice President Barbary Coast Consulting
I truly enjoyed working with David Schellinger and the lcp team. Everyone was extremely response, professional and effective in getting our needs met. I highly recommend lcp's services to anyone looking for marketing assistance/guidance. I will definitely be using lcp again for future projects. Thank you for all of your hard work David!
Nolan Prescott Jones Partner Bay Property Group
David is the perfect combination of professional and personal. Working with him has been enjoyable because he truly listens to comments from differing people and positions and applies them or explains why something may not be the best solution and offers a better solution. Although lcp may be a small firm, they come across just as professional and knowledgeable as all those other big guys. More importantly, they respond to emails and phone calls quickly and action tasks quickly keeping our project going smoothly. From the original temporary static and dynamic signage to the fabrication and final installation, he has been there to ensure all details are perfect and to our preference. We look forward to continuing to work with David and lcp into the future. Our whole airport signage program is fantastic because of lcp.
Kristin Brown, Manager, Passenger Experience Edmonton Airports
Starting a new business is hard work, and figuring out the marketing of it is even more daunting when that's not your specialty. Questions swirled in my head for months as I prepared to give it a go as an entrepreneur... What should I name my company that will resonate with my clients? What will my website look like? How do I come up with a logo that represents me? Then I found lowercase productions! Working with David and his team made all the pieces come together so easily. David asked great questions that helped me refine my corporate identity, and then gave me great options to bring it to life. I now have a name, logo, business cards, marketing materials and website that I'm proud to share with others. And to top it off, I regularly hear from my clients how quickly they "get" what I'm all about just from seeing my business card or website. I couldn't be more happy with the work that the lowercase productions team did for me. David is a true rockstar!
Jason Fenske Founder Pivot Point
I had the most amazing professional business experience working with David Schellinger. When I first contacted him I had a number of high profile assignments I needed to complete. The first was the development and production of a major print piece and folder for a start-up, and the second was the development and production of a comprehensive, engaging website.  I had virtually no experience at all in these areas. David took me through the processes step-by-step, helping me identify my brand, worked through the different color palates, photos, layout, he did it all. Always with a smile and a great attitude, as I presented his work through myriad executive sign-offs and changes. In the end, both the print piece and website are outstanding, more then I could have imagined, and all at a price that was both reasonable and fair. If you can get the guy - between his clamoring clients, grab him, you'll feel like you made the best business decision you've ever made in graphic design, and you'll probably get a promotion out of it, (unless you own your company), in which case you'll have the extra revenue all to yourself.  Thanks David, I could NOT have done it without you.
Jerry Bayer (Former) Executive Director Reliance Center
We wanted to open a different kind of candy store, and we needed a logo that conveyed our aesthetic – sophisticated, contemporary and fun. David was able to translate these somewhat vague notions into a fantastic logo design. From the first sketched concepts, David “got” the look and feel we were after, and he managed to successfully translate the concept into a variety of media, from shopping bags to signage to our website. Not a day goes by that we don’t get a compliment on our logo. Because of David’s work, people can instantly sense what it is that sets our aesthetic apart from other candy stores – and we can’t overstate how important that has been to the success of our business.
Diane Campbell Owner The Candy Store
David and lowercase productions is fantastic to work with! Their designs are clean, modern, appealing to the eye and perfect for our business. The turnover on projects is always handled quickly and efficiently without any issues! Thank you lowercase productions!
Katie Carlson BALIF Administrator BALIF
We started our process knowing where we wanted to end up, but no clear direction on how to get there. David provided the road, the map, the guidance and the end product was superb. He is a true professional who is very skilled in being able to listen to a client and then to translate ones jumbled ideas into a coherent and beautiful end product. He is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.
Valerie Concello Board Liaison, CREW San Francisco CREW SF
Fast work. Good prices. Great service. Smart thinking. Clear communications. Wonderful website. Easy maintenance. Happy customer.
Patrick Hannan Executive Director City Fields Foundation
The Friends of Holbrook-Palmer Park worked with David at Lowercase Productions to create a new logo that would be reflective of the organization's mission. We are a small non-profit with a limited budget, and David understood that dynamic from the outset. David and his team came up with a visually compelling concept that captures the spirit of the Friends and its mission to maintain and beautify our beloved local park. The graphic has been so well received that we are currently in the process of printing tote bags and t-shirts and we cannot wait to see people around town sporting our new logo. Thank you, David, for your work and patience!
Katy Klaus Board Member Friends of Holbrook Palmer Park
As Executive Director I often use the materials produced for us by lowercase productions in meetings with potential supporters. They are always impressed, but one meeting stands out: I was meeting with local government officials explaining that we are small nonprofit and seeking city support. As they looked at the brochure created for us by lowercase productions they commented, “This certainly doesn’t look like the material of a small group. It’s much nicer then many of the large groups that come to see us.” And that’s when I realized how immensely valuable David Schellinger’s work has been for us.
Paul Boneberg Executive Director GLBT Hisotrical Society
David is a treasure.  He branded People in Plazas and designed all collateral material.  Even today, after many years with our logo, I get positive comments when I give out my business card. In addition David gently encourages his ideas without ever discounting the aesthetic of the client. We are a small non-profit so it is essential that we keep costs down and add at our own pace. David is so great at providing us with flexibility, so that we can add functions to our web page or change print layouts easily and without great expense.  Working with David is painless. He does what he says he will do and in a timely fashion.  His love and energy for his work is infectious.
Lynn Valente Executive Director People in Plazas
David and his team are responsive, smart, and absolutely top-notch when it comes to infographics. We often deal with presenting complex data, and David is always able to make that critical information accessible, visually compelling, and clear for multiple audiences.
Belinda Griswald Program Director Resource Media
David's work is the perfect blend of surprise and stability. I am often bowled over with the ingenuity and whimsy he applies when visually communicating a message. His initial ideas spark curiosity and debate, while the finished product is grounded in an appropriate measure of reality and rationale. Where does stability come in? David makes good on his time commitments, his estimates, and his quality. The stability makes my job easier--the surprise makes me look really good.
Kimberly Kowalski (Former) Chief Marketing Officer Trust for Public Land
As an intermediary between public schools and the business community, the need to communicate effectively between the two worlds is paramount.  Since both these worlds conduct their affairs in a frenzied pace, it was important for me that my Internet presence reflect a sense of calmness, clarity and confidence.  It was also important that I appear connected to both worlds.  David is a great listener and a quick learner.  David quickly understood what I was looking to convey and captured the essence of my work through his design of my logo and website, as well as my business cards. I was extremely impressed with his instinct and artistic skills to communicate my work.  David is also very empathetic to people who wear multiple hats in their business.  He is extraordinarily patient and genuinely wants you to feel comfortable about how you want to represent yourself to the outside world.   I completely trust David and lowercase productions.
Jennielyn Dino-Rossi Principal Urban Joule
Working with David and the lowercase productions team was a pleasure. From concept to execution the team was creative, responsive and listened to our input. They were able to design a campaign that worked across several different mediums and still remained fresh and engaging. It is no wonder they have such a great reputation in the local community, they are the kind of people you want to work with.
Jason Lalak Vice President Women Impacting Public Policy
David is brilliant! For the last 2 years I have relied exclusively on lowercase productions for all of my design work; without always knowing what I needed or wanted, David listened and then provided insight and recommendations, and gave me a comfort level with design that allowed me to push boundaries in ways I never expected. In addition to beautifully re-branding and reinvigorating my organization, he helped breathe life into a critical fundraiser through professional and exciting invitations and collateral, facilitate inclusion of competing organizations in joint event advertising and collateral, and translate enormous amounts of complicated information into easily readable and accessible documents to ensure passage of a Community Benefit District. We get along so well I like to believe I’m an easy client; in reality, David’s flexibility, patience, and willingness to provide consistently extraordinary work for an overwhelming amount of last-minute deadlines makes my job feel easy. It’s not often that, as an Executive Director, you find a solid sounding board to help you make critical decisions about the future of your organization; I’m incredibly lucky to have that in David. The Yerba Buena Neighborhood, and the Alliance, are richer and more beautifully presented for having David and lowercase productions on our team.
Heather Hoell (Former) Executive Director Yerba Buena Alliance
It is always a pleasure to work with lowercase productions. With David’s background in architecture and civic design and experience in graphics, he is consistently aware of the “bigger picture” providing a no-nonsense process and a well designed product. He is engaged in the design process and welcomes feedback from the owner and entire design team to ensure a well conceived graphic identity program. He is also in touch with the fabrication and installation process which has given me great confidence that the graphics package will be implemented within budget.
Elizabeth Freer, PM San Francisco Conservatory of Music
For our new development project, there were numerous players at the table; the developer, the architect, the public relations and political consultants. Each had very specific visions in addition to the teams common goal for the project website. After reviewing all of this information, David and his team successfully incorporated them all to create a visually engaging site that included the needs of the collective team. Additionally, the lcp team created an easy to use content management tool that allows us to readily stay on top of things on this ever-changing project.
Calvin Meeder Director of Design and Construction Paramount Group
I am writing to recommend David Schellinger and his firm lowercase productions. We retained Schellinger to help us produce our responses to the Port of San Francisco's Request for Qualifications and Proposals for what is now known as the Mission Rock project. We worked with his team to help us present, design and package our submittals. He was very responsive and a true pleasure to work with.  We were also successful in being awarded the development opportunity! In addition to his work on the development project, I have also worked with Schellinger to help produce posters, ticket stock and promotional materials for a film festival I help produce in San Francisco.  His work product is very strong and my experience as a client was excellent.
Jack Bair Executive Vice President and General Counsel San Francisco Giants
lowercase productions’ thoughtful preparation of web and print marketing materials help us lease office buildings before they are built. David and the rest of the graphic design team were always available to answer questions and provide design inspiration needed to create spectacular collateral material. They are an integral part of the design and development team and give us the ability to accurately represent projects before a shovel goes in the ground.
