Chief Donor Relations Officer
University of Alaska Foundation
If you have the opportunity to work with Wessel Creative, do not hesitate. Tyler is innovative and balances the technical aspects, storytelling, and creative design like no other. To top it off, he is an absolute joy to work with. He truly became part of our team, even without ever setting foot on any of our university campuses.
Tyler was able to create a brand for our comprehensive campaign that resonated with each of us. Our Foundation President remarked that the creativity and level to detail is on par with the bigger creative agencies out there. He listened to what we wanted to achieve and ran with it. His video storytelling literally had us in tears. He is a creative thinker and skilled at bringing multiple visions together for an amazing product. He has helped take us to the next level.
Founder and Principal
Donor Relations Guru
I have worked with Tyler for several years. He is an amazing creative force and helps transform the look and feel of the organizations he helps. His vision for the experience of consuming communications is thoughtful and intentional.
I refer all of my clients to him —they love him—and I work with him for all of my campaigns. He understands the world of donor relations and alumni affairs and knows how to really impress your donors and alumni. I cannot recommend Tyler enough. He really is a specialist in our field and understands our work and has a strong passion for making communications soar.
Assistant Director for Donor Relations
The University of Texas at Austin
Tyler enthusiastically stepped into a role where our new team needed fresh creativity, even when we weren’t sure where to start. My work with Tyler during UT Thanks Day led to two CASE District IV 2018 Awards: Gold in “Design-Special Pieces” and Silver in “Donor Relations / Stewardship,” as well as CASE Circle of Excellence Award: Silver in “Silver Award for Stewardship."
It’s been a true privilege to collaborate with Tyler. He’s incredibly professional, thoughtful, and very easy to work with. Without his design and communications talent, attention to detail, quick turnaround, and ability to work well remotely, this campus-wide campaign would not have been so successful. Grateful for Tyler and all he does for us—I could not recommend him more!
Director of Alumni Relations
Berkeley Preparatory School
As we began to envision all that our alumni reunion could be, we knew we had to build a brand that would convey the message of uniting the alumni community from the first graduating class to the most recent. Not only was Tyler able to do that, he exceeded all expectations! Without having ever been to campus or personally knowing any members of our alumni family, he captured the essence of our alumni and our vision for the event perfectly. Having achieved this end result in the first attempt is just icing on the cake. Members of our school leadership have been beyond impressed.
Tyler took the time to really listen to what we wanted and because of it, we have a remarkable brand that will stand the test of time and evolve with the life of our institution.
Founder & Prinicpal
Osborn Conflict Resolution
The genius behind my company’s overhaul is Tyler Wessel. You have crushed it on this. A million thanks for your patience, vision, and just genius sense of visual & graphic design. Thanks for enduring 1 million emails, wording nitpicks, and probably way more stylistic changes than you ever bargained for. But most of all, the sense of perspective & steadiness you brought in keeping our eyes where they ought to be: on the clients we serve.
I have a feeling that one day we are going to look at the rare air design space you will be in and we will be kind of amazed that we ever had the privilege of working with you as you launched your own venture.
Former Executive Director of Development
Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences
Tyler created an entire visual identity for Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Science’s fundraising campaign. His designs elevated our print and online communications to a whole new level!
Tyler creates designs that are visually appealing, easy to read, and effectively conveys the message. I highly recommend Tyler for all your design needs.
