“Can I get a witness?” – Marvin Gaye. We get hired for our voice and our point of view in communicating our clients’ message. Ultimately that POV is only as relevant as our clients’ audiences bear witness. Here are a few of our long standing clients witnessing as to how our design approach helped communicate their specific story. We love our clients, and we love to hear what they have to say. So Listen up, and witness some kind words from great people.

“The best part of the week was looking forward to what Replace had created since the last meeting. And it all ended with award winning creative and design that continues to get our Brand noticed year after year. We couldn’t have made a better decision than having Replace do our design work.”

Joia All Natural Soda & Boundary Waters Brands | Co-Founder

“During our decade-long relationship, Replace has helped us rebrand our co-op as well as assisted in the development of the iconic look of our Franklin store redesign. They bring an enormous degree of creativity and passion to their work, in addition to ethical design practices that take into consideration environmental impacts and social justice. I’ve recommended Replace to several of my colleagues in the cooperative industry, and I always look forward to working with them on new projects.”

Tom Vogel
Seward Co-op | Marketing Manager

“REPLACE is such a crucial part of my business that we consult them regularly on every deal we do. Literally. Their marketing and business strategic input is as remarkable as their world class design work, just less well advertised. I don’t make a move with out REPLACE.”

Andrew Zimmern
Celebrity Chef

“Replace has been a primary creative collaborator of ours for many years. They have walked with us all along the journey, equipping us for success as we’ve grown and evolved to realize our mission. We can’t imagine where we’d be without their energy, passion, commitment to our goals, and strategic integrity.”

Rob Dewey
Augsburg Fortress and Sparkhouse | Creative Directors

“When your business is your baby, giving it a name and brand identity can be one of the most excruciating business activities. For me, the name needed to be timeless and meaningful, with a design aesthetic that was sophisticated, yet expressive. The Design Replace team was thoughtful in their approach. They took time to learn about our industry and understand the personality of my business. With a variety of options at hand, and the flexibility to mix/match designs that appealed to me, the process became a partnership, bringing to life CLICK.”

Kat Duncan and Mary Lou Wichlacz

“We love our relationship with Replace. The top-notch work product is expected and wonderful, but getting into the work with the Replace team is an added and always appreciated joy.”

“Everyday life and business decisions take some funny turns. Nokomis shoes had this quirky design business located across the street from us. There were strange bikes and cars there. Bikes with canoe trailers on them. People working at odd hours. My thoughts were what is this place up to? I had heard stories told to me about the owner going for years without a haircut . Having a crew of freelance artist starting a design company working for beer.  I decided to take a chance and use my local resources and met with Replace. It turned out to be one of the best decisions we have made. The team at Replace was excellent. They listened and delivered above and beyond our expectations.  They gave Nokomis Shoes a playbook for the next fifty years. Great people and great design.  Very satisfied customer.”

Steve Negaard
Nokomis Shoes | Owner

“I couldn’t ask to work with a more creative, intuitive, talented, fun and patient group of people. I LOVE working with the team at Replace!  I’ve worked on so many projects with them, and without fail, each time they “get” exactly what we are trying to convey so quickly and perfectly. The designs they deliver are fun, creative, politically astute and quite beautiful. I can hardly wait to come up with our next project just to have another opportunity to create something fun, and impactful, with them.”
