For over ten years, Mortin Graphic Design (m-design) has been creating visually arresting design work for my film production company, Enigmatico Films, which specializes in films on art and performance. Originally, Barry designed for us a strong, iconic, and elegant logo that cleverly implies great works of art, drawing from Da Vincis masterpiece, the Mona Lisa. He has also created all of the promotional material for each of our productions, ranging from full scale movie posters to press kits, DVD labels, one-sheet flyers for television buyers, project proposals, and most recently, a stunning, fully interactive web site for our latest production. In every case, Barry has managed to capture the essence of each film in a single, emblematic image.

I have worked with Barry since 1991 and have been bowled over in every project by the freshness, energy, class, and inventiveness of his design work.

The Port Hope Area Initiative is a federal municipal project for the cleanup and long-term safe management of historic low-level radioactive waste in the Port Hope area. It is a public process that is scrutinized at many levels of government. It entails highly complex and technical issues that must be communicated to a varied audience.
As writer and project manager, I work closely with Barry, producing newsletters, advertisements, various types of public information material, posters for public events and displays. Barry has brought to the working relationship far more than I could have discerned when I first engaged him. His professionalism, reliability, creativity and integrity are beyond reproach.
One of the most demanding aspects of our work is the requirement to present difficult information in a manner that can be readily understood. Design plays an essential role in this. As a writer, I must provide the graphic artist with understandable content, however the public’s first point of engagement is through the design. The degree of success we achieve in informing and educating is heavily reliant on the strength of the design and its ability to assist in achieving our communication objectives. We work in a climate driven by deadlines and demanding sensitivity to a varied audience. Barry and I share a common zero tolerance for error.
Barry consistently meets these demands. His dedication is outstanding. I feel fortunate to work with such a talented and committed individual.
Over the years, I have worked with several designers and this is the first time that I have immediately resonated with the samples offered. Usually it’s a back and forth process and eventually you get something that works. This time, there were several exciting options to work with. When I showed the samples to several people, I immediately got the ‘WOW’ factor.¾ This is impact that I was looking for. In fact, I decided to use some of the samples in additional ways.
I operate a small business that includes a B&B, Retreat, Coaching and Facilitation Services. I felt that Barry gave me the same time and attention that he would for a larger account. The range and talent of his work is remarkable.
