red Martens is a wonderful graphic designer! I have depended on Fred’s design services for over 18 years. At first I worked with him when I worked for another company. Then I tapped Fred to serve as our sole graphic designer when I started my own company 18 years ago, PsychPros, Inc..
He is remarkably diverse in his ability to take on various applications and projects. We have used him for print and electronic media on projects like website design, brochures, advertisements, oversized postcards, promotional items for conferences, staff profiles, and numerous other applications.
Fred takes any ideas I give him and works his magic on them. Our finished materials always get compliments on the design, professional appearance, and the positive impact that they have on the reader. Kudos, Fred!

orking with Fred is a joy. He is extraordinarily talented, multifaceted, and remarkably responsive to whatever one asks of him. We, at Chamber Music Cincinnati, have thoroughly enjoyed our collaboration.
For the past two years Fred has designed our concert series brochure and, often on short notice, our ads for placement in other concert programs. Our brochures have been admired and complimented as beautiful and professional. Thanks, Fred.

have worked with Fred for nearly ten years on developing two websites, and I always found the process engaging, informative, and always fun and amusing. I love Fred’s creative energy, his knack for developing brands, and his exceptionally sweet demeanor.”
Michael R. McCleese, Landscape Designer
red created all of our graphics and marketing material as well as our website design.
"He is exceptionally capable, engages well with his clients, and is always one thought ahead of what you think you may want.
"Fred is an expert in his field and I knew that whatever I call him to help me with, it will be done fastidiously. Fred is charming, exhibits a good sense of humor and is someone I learned to really connect with. I really miss working with him since I have changed jobs, but I know if I have a question, I can call on him."
Sandee Taylor, formerly of PsychPros
have collaborated with Fred on a number of websites, newsletters, logos, and other marketing projects for over 10 years. It's always a fun and rewarding experience to work with him. Most recently, we successfully launched staf.org, which was an incredible process. I can’t imagine a site that better articulates the hope and vision of our organization.
"Fred has a knack for taking the seed of an idea, plus input from a lot of people, and then turn it into an amazing reality. His design skills, eye for detail, and commitment to deadlines are matched only by his ability to 'talk me off the ledge' when I am feeling overwhelmed by the process! He understands the need to communicate with just enough detail to help all decision makers understand and ultimately agree on the next steps.
"In many cases Fred came up with suggestions and solutions that perfectly articulated what we needed to move to the next phase of the design. Most importantly, our recently finished site is gorgeous! Seriously, have you seen it? If not, please visit and see poetry in motion!"
Jean Kandel, Marketing Professional
e worked with Fred on our new web site, which he made using WordPress. The site looks tons better than our old one, and now we can update it ourselves.
"I am the first to admit, I am not good with computers and all that web stuff. But Fred was really patient and clear. In about a half hour, I was able to learn how to update all the information on our web site. With one more phone call of training, I was then able to learn how to add photos, new pages and upload pdf files.
"I never thought I could do this, but Fred's training made it really easy!"
