These are just some of the glowing reviews we've received.
Liam took the time to first get to know me and find out about me to help him uncover a better style for my website. He was consistent, professional, creative, and wanted to leave me with the best possible website for my budget. I highly recommend working with him, I would all over again.

I’ve seen a lot of Liam’s work and knew I wanted to hire him to design a professional logo for my gecko breeding business. Liam asked me many questions and paid close attention to what my company needed in a logo, and what other similar companies are doing. Liam gave me several choices at the start and then gave me more choices to finish the final logo. This new logo totally suits my business and my personality. It’s crisp and clear, not messy or overcrowded. I would definitely recommend Liam to anyone looking for a logo design.

DoodleArt was purchased from the original creators in 2009. The company had great potential but there was work to be done to bring a 1970’s company into today’s market expectations. Today’s packaging is an enormous undertaking. The image that makes you want to buy the product is very important, but the devil is in the details. Canadian products need French and English, while North America also need Spanish. In the UK, due to the number of languages symbols are often an acceptable way of communicating warnings etc. Research is key and compliance is vital for your product to succeed. Liam was a godsend for us! his extensive knowledge of art and design is second to none. Liam worked feverishly to create a great website, all corporate collateral from business cards to trade show booths that took us around the globe. Liam is a pleasure to deal with and a master at his craft.

Liam is my exclusive graphic designer for my logos, advertising, clothing, and any artwork I needed for my business since 2006. He also was my website designer for most of Audiopile’s existence online. Liam was pretty much my go-to for any visuals I wanted to represent Audiopile. Besides Liam’s extraordinary artistic talent (see my logo/letterhead for proof), I believe his greatest asset is his willingness to step up in any situation I threw at him. I can be forgetful at times, and Liam always jumped right into work when I would send him some crucial, time-sensitive project that I had forgotten. Even if I had given him plenty of time to work on a project, he usually had it done with plenty of time to spare. This leads to his other great asset; a willingness to adapt, change, and listen to my needs or requests. Liam produces phenomenal artwork, but where he really shines as far as business is concerned, is he really tries to achieve what I want and worked hard to make my vision for my store come to life. It’s rare to find an artist who can put his ego and style aside to make sure a client gets what they want. I was also pleased with Liam’s enthusiasm and work ethic. He was always eager to work and always had a positive attitude. He is a pleasure to work with. Finally, from a business point of view, I found I was always getting excellent value from Liam. He was more than reasonable with his fee structure, and I always felt I was being treated fairly and honestly. I’ve been in retail and management for over forty years, so I know how valuable it is to have someone like Liam working for you. I have no reservations in recommending Liam, and he would be an asset to any organization. Should you need any further information, do not hesitate to contact me.

I have been involved in the signage and screen printing industry for over 25 years. I have worked with dozens of graphic designers over the years assisting me in challenging projects which needed creative design work. Liam is one of the most, if not the most creative, and naturally talented designers I have ever worked with. His quality of work is truly amazing. Liam also completely understands how to create vectorized graphics, cleanly, and properly. Whether it’s a simple one colour graphic or an eight colour graphic, you can expect to receive clean, crisp, and more importantly, correct colour separations. It has been a pleasure working with Liam over the years, I wish I had even 10% of Liam’s natural design talent.

Even though I have never met Liam Hayes I have always felt a strong presence of friendship between us and the music we love and share together. Liam started the Witchfinder General official website many years ago, which certainly helped to put the band back in the public eye. He has worked tirelessly to keep the website updated, packed with information, views and facts, and excellent eye-catching designs, which he has also used on merchandise. I am forever indebted to Liam for all his hard work and can honestly say he is no less than a genius.

We’re really happy with Liam’s brand design for Dartmouth Shelter Society. Liam is both a consummate professional & an artist. We explained our mission statement and his design for Dartmouth Shelter captured it exactly and it works well across a variety of mediums. First impressions are lasting so thank you, Liam!

I (unknowingly) got familiarized with Liam’s work through Illustrated Monthly 7 years ago. I have since worked with him on logos, fonts, watermarks, and punch-up Graphic Design work which use my illustrations (for clients of every stature). Liam has been prompt, honest, and knowledgeable with fair pricing. I have and continue to recommend Liam and Halifax Design Lab for any graphic design needs.

I had Liam Hayes create my Electric Gecko’s Logo, website, and business cards. The logo was amazing and the website was very easy to navigate and update. I received a lot of compliments on both the logo and website. Liam was able to take on the task of creating these for me in a very timely manner and with absolute professionalism. I would highly recommend Liam to anyone going forward knowing the type of person he is and the work he does!!

On several occasions we have used the services of Liam Hayes for business/logo purposes. On each occasion, Liam exceeded our expectations, transforming our vision into a professional visual that we were highly impressed with and proud to show. Liam is receptive, very personable and a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend his services.

Liam is a very talented artist and designer I’ve known for many years so when I needed a wordmark for my photography it was a natural choice to support his new venture. I love my scalable wordmark, it’s easily incorporated into prints that require signing or digital files I need to protect. Liam completed the project on time and was easy to communicate with.
Angela Granchelli
I would gladly recommend Liam Hayes without a doubt for any design work. I have used Liam multiple times on multiple projects. Not only was he patient, but he provided great ideas for the needs of my businesses. Several times he’s created the most wonderful business cards for me. My clients always compliment me on them, and everything on the cards was custom done, even the font. He provides a very personal service with many years of knowledge and is very aware of the current design trends. I have also recommended him to friends Who have needed website design, online store set-ups, and when I’ve reached out to them to see how it went I was not surprised that they had all loved the services he provided for them. He is honest, forthright, and diligent in his craft.

Liam carefully listened to the vision I had for the company I’m creating and did extensive research. As a result, the logo he created is perfect. I was originally attached to a more ethereal concept for the logo (a butterfly), but Liam had some suggestions and I trusted him. Now, over one year later I’m astonished at how well Liam knew the exact combination of symbols my company will need to represent my product line.

I had wanted to launch my business with the right logo. I had an idea in mind but couldn’t find much out there. I reached out to Liam at Halifax Design Lab and not only did he have the tools to give me exactly what I needed, he called me to discuss the options and how each idea may work or not work. In no time at all, I had my logo! He was open to feedback for even minor changes. Letting me know how this will help the future of my business and in what ways. Then he created a few social media ads that were perfectly rendered and we used those to spread the word. I will come back to Halifax Design Lab for all my needs (in the future I will be looking to have my website with him as well). Thank you, Liam and Halifax Design Lab for being awesome!

I work as a counsellor in private practice. When I was starting to build my business, I needed a clean and professional website. I had tried to make one myself on WordPress, but I wanted to have a static site built which could represent me and the work that I do, optimally. I was so fortunate to have been referred to Liam. He was so easy to work with and so kind. Liam listened to my ideas and understood what I needed from a website, as a new business. He was also able to infuse my vision with his own creative initiative. Liam has been very easy to work with. He has always been there when I’ve had questions or needed to make changes to suit my business during times of growth and development. I have recommended Liam to other people I know, who are looking for a new website and will continue to do so. I highly recommend his services.

Liam designed a range of t-shirts for our business. He is creative, responsive and delivers to budget and on time. I would recommend Liam without hesitation.

Super professional, quick, understood exactly what I was wanting in the design and the webpage. The logo was better than I could have imagined on my own; Liam took the original idea and took it to the next level. Won’t find an easier person to work with, Liam comes with the highest of recommendations.

Liam worked out amazingly well for our band’s website. He’s got a clever mix of great art skills and technical know-how that is hard to find these days. As well, he responds quickly to design changes and was often the one suggesting possible alternatives to any design issues that arose. I’d definitely recommend his work.

The best experience we have had designing a website. From concept meetings through to posting the site online Liam made the job fun and a professional experience. I would not hesitate in recommending Liam to any company or individual looking to design a website.

I have known Liam Hayes since 1998 so I guess you may say that I know him better than most. I have never met anybody as talented as Liam. He is a very creative person. His graphics are the best. He designed our logo, our headtube badges, our websites, catalogs, and all the decals and paint on our bikes. He is very easy to work with. I give him a suggestion and he comes up with incredible stuff.

When we set out to rebrand a store/gallery our first call was to Liam. I’ve worked with Liam on several projects over the years and I know he is truly the best in the business. We had two phone consultations and within a week Liam hit it out of the park. From the logo design, choice of font every aspect of the design was flawless. Our collateral is strong. Liam even designed our signage and truck wrap, which is great advertising, T-shirts and so much more! Thank you, Liam!!!

After hearing our band’s basic creative guidelines, Liam took the reins and immediately created the full layout for our CD. His artistic talent and time spent on our project went well above and beyond ..while staying within budget and remaining within the vision we had. He also did a multi-location photoshoot, created silk-screened shirt designs and gig posters, and put in the painstaking effort to digitally render our band logo from a very detailed drawing. Knowledgeable and a great communicator..I’d recommend him to anyone requiring their ideas being translated to a tangible and accurate visual representation.

Liam at Halifax Design Lab has a brilliant eye for capturing motion and mood, without direction he finds that needle in a haystack that you’re looking for before you even think of looking. Precise and clear, his design work reflects the dedication to make something that is iconic as well as keeps your brand vocal without too much. Fast and efficient, great artist sense, and he likes good music! He’s like a tattoo artist, you’ll get a better piece if you work with him!

I am very happy with Liam Hayes’ work. He worked on my company logo and I am using it since 2005. I am sure the logo is one of the reasons my business is so well known in this industry. His work is very detailed and professional. On top of that, he also focuses on my visions and goals on my project. If you look for a graphic designer, I don’t have any reservations to recommend him.
