What our clients will tell you

“Working with the branding agency team at Carter Hales is like solving a problem with a really good friend who is also supremely talented, original and inspired. What I have enjoyed the most is the process of arriving at a design, (imagine enjoying a process!). It is a conversation in the best sense of the word, questions leading to ideas, more examination and deeper questions about what you want to say and how to say it visually. I love their work and equally as important, I love working with them.”

Hal Wake

Former Artistic Director
Vancouver Writers Festival

 “You guys have created something truly spectacular – iconic – a complete and genuine work of art – you are gentlemen, gurus and geniuses. From the logo to the chrome to the swords to the light – there is not a bottle on earth that can hold a flame. Bathe in the wonder of your creation, bask in its glory for you have made the world more beautiful. I hope the fucking saké doesn’t taste like piss.”

Neil Hosie

Co-Founder
Four Fox Saké

“Back in 1995 when the Wickaninnish Inn was in its infancy—before ground was even broken—Sean Carter created our original voice through branding, imagery and consistent attention to detail, perfectly reflecting our vision for the Inn. Through the years we have evolved together and to this day continue to enjoy a warm and productive partnership with Sean through the Carter Hales team. The Carter Hales branding agency has kept us “On Pointe,” ensuring our external voice matches who we are and what we offer beautifully, in a way that resonates with our guests. We’ve observed many milestones with Sean and Carter Hales, and we look forward to many more celebrating “Rustic Elegance on Nature’s Edge.”
