Steven Duncan is an absolute creative genius! His graphic skills are unparalleled. The detail and intricacies of his designs are so complex. Each layer and effect he applies are deliberate and thoughtful which results in works of art. Working with Steven was a blast. I still hold great memories that bring a smile to my face and occasionally break out in giggles. I would highly recommend Steven for and graphic project...versatile, talented, and fun! As a Creative Director, he clearly communicated his vision and inspired the team. We all knew the end results would be amazing, and we were happy and excited to help execute projects.

Steve was the first Creative Director (Suzy’s Zoo) with whom I had the opportunity to work directly. He was fundamental in shaping the way I approached design, art and presentation. His style was effortless. I am still in awe of what he is able to dream up. Unique, creative designs and pitches seem to just flow from him. He taught me so much about how to work collaboratively and the fundamentals of design. A true mentor and excellent talent. I’d love to work with Steve again.

Working with Steven is always a delight. His unique ability to visualize and execute concepts, his great sense of humor, and his professionalism made every day we worked together equal parts productive and fun. His contagious passion for design comes through in everything he does, and can’t help but inspire the people he works with, As a writer I’ve patterned with numerous artists and graphic designers over the years, but I believe some of my best creative work came through on the projects that we worked on together, He always brings great ideas to the table and I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I have had the pleasure of working with Steve face to face and through his inspired creations in the paper and craft industry. He is an extraordinarily talented AND positive person to work with. I continue to reach for the papers and products that he designed even as time passes.

I worked with Steven’s creative designs as a Design Team Member (October Afternoon) for over a year. He has an amazing eye for pattern and color choices; which were always spot on. He creates a vintage esthetic in his work that is now always easy to get just right-but he does. Not to mention, he is about the nicest person you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

Steven Duncan and I worked together at October Afternoon. As General Manager, it became clear very quickly that he was a special talent. Instead of pieces of collections, or small parts of a project, he was tasked with creating and designing entire lines...he is a great team player making those around him better. In a high stress, deadline driven environment he never failed to deliver a high quality product on time. He was quick to step up and take the lead on any work that needed to be done, from major projects to assembling an amazing booth for a trade show. The best times at October Afternoon were the times Steven was on the team
