Tanya is amazing! We have engaged Drawing Out Ideas for a number of events at IBM and no matter how we employ Tanya’s artistry, she makes a huge impact. Watching her capture the essence of a speaker relaying a client story or visually depicting the benefits of a new product or announcement will fascinate both you and your audiences. She is a fantastic partner who takes the time to understand your audience and message, and then does her research to deliver the perfect experience for your clients.

We had been wanting to create a video to introduce to people who we are and what we do. We liked the whiteboard style…but had not found a vendor that fit our requirements. Once we had met Tanya in our office, we knew we found the right person.

Tanya clearly articulated her position/issues/expectations and delivers on her promises. I appreciate her ability to creatively solve problems or complex issues that we face while immersed in a project. She delivers an excellent client service experience (her, her deliverables, and information). I would not hire anyone else to do this type of work.

Development and Alumni Engagement, University of British Columbia

Working with Tanya on our animation was just a great experience – she provided detailed information on the production process from the very beginning and more than delivered at every stage of development. She was thoroughly professional, full of ideas, adaptable and stayed on budget and on time. We are very happy with the end results and would definitely recommend her services to others.

Teaching Professor, Program Director for Aboriginal Canadian Entrepreneurs (ACE)

Peter B. Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria

I contacted Tanya in late March 2013 to help capture the essence of a unique community based Entrepreneurship education program the University of Victoria was delivering in Northern Aboriginal communities (see www.nwace.ca). My experience with Tanya was superb!

Tanya is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful, and having her assist in focusing our marketing message was a pleasant undertaking during a hectic time. Tanya is a consummate experienced professional. She represents a rare hybrid of talented artist, creative scriptwriter, technology expert and savvy marketer. She is smart and has a wonderful engaging style and manner.

Tanya generously gave us her time, her knowledge and herself above and beyond what we expected. The hand drawn video Tanya created was key to successfully launching the Aboriginal Canadian Entrepreneurs (ACE) program. Prospective students quickly understood the process and related to the benefits. Corporate sponsors and other important stakeholders were captivated by the vision that was clearly and concisely represented in Tanya’s video. Tanya continues to create other videos for us and I have recommended her without hesitation to colleagues in my network. Hiring Tanya to create our video was the best marketing dollars I have ever spent.

AHA Creative Strategies

Not only is Tanya Gadsby incredibly talented in the work that she does, she is also a pleasure to work with. Tanya collaborates with her clients, making sure that she clearly understands their goals, objectives and their business. Then she works her own personal magic. She consistently communicated with us throughout the process, keeping us in the loop and up-to-date on the project status. Tanya is strategic, professional and creative – a valuable blend of skills. She is also easy and fun to work with (always a bonus).

For AHA Creative Strategies, the result of working with Tanya Gadsby is an engaging, informative video that clearly communicates the work that we do and why an organization would work with us. This video is at the heart of our promotional efforts for our boutique communications agency and we have already had positive feedback on it.  Not only would we work with Tanya again (in a heartbeat!), we have also recommended her to our clients – which is the highest professional compliment we can pay to someone.
