Trellis has worked with us to help promote our brand in a much more professional manner. The result has been increased awareness and understanding of our company, which has led to more business inquiries. Our account lead is great to work with. She dives into each project with great enthusiasm and is a pleasure to work with. We call on her time and time again and she always delivers.
George Wyatt, Wyatt Health Management
Samantha and her team listen - and that's why she's so good at what she does. She asked questions to understand my brand. Working with her helped me focus on what my own vision is for my practice. They designed a stylish, personalised logo that really reflects my tastes and goals. And they arranged a photo shoot that produced great results.

Trellis produced marketing and program materials in support of the 2012 conference of the Canadian Positive Psychology Association. The work was attractive, professional, and always completed in a timely fashion. We will definitely work with them again.
Dr. Jaime Gruman, Professor, Author, Speaker
I hired Trellis for two projects: 1. to design a conference program for the Canadian Positive Psychology Association and 2. to design an ad for my own business, LVS Consulting. The CPPA program was a large project for a new organization, and Samantha dealt with us very kindly and professionally. As this was our first conference, we didn't really know what look and feel we wanted, and so Samantha put together quite a few samples and talked with us about colours, design elements and other aspects of the creative process. She worked uncomplainingly with our logo (which was designed part-way through the program process) and she dealt with different Board members very professionally and insightfully. The overall conference was a huge success, and the evaluations of the conference program were excellent. We were entirely pleased with the program, the process and the team's contributions. I would absolutely hire Trellis again, without hesitation
Lisa Sansom, Consultant
Trellis designed our conference brochure and signs and did an outstanding job. We looked very professional. The designs were modern and professional and dramatically improved our image. Our designer was great to work with and very responsive. I would recommend her to anyone.

In the last several years I have been able to reconnect with my community to celebrate its beauty, while deepening my understanding of the challenges and opportunities available within individuals, families and organizations. One group I was fortunate to work with is Trellis Concepts, a Mississauga-based agency, providing a range of marketing, creative and communications support services. If you are seeking "boiler plate" or "cookie cutter" communications and marketing support, then Trellis Concepts is not the agency for you. However, if you are in search of a creative, responsive and flexible agency that makes the time to understand and support your efforts, then Trellis may be the right agency for you. They have a knowledgeable, helpful and experienced team, and best of all as a client, you will feel cared for, listened to, and satisfied that they are fully vested in helping you meet your needs.

Taneja Consulting Inc. has been working with Trellis Concepts for the past 5 years and continues to work with them as they are responsive, creative and bring innovative solutions to all deliverables. We have worked with them in creating interactive, well laid-out websites - the websites have taken complex data and illustrated it in ways that resonate with any stakeholder group. Their document preparation services are tailored to the diverse needs of the reader and reflect so many amazing design elements that make content more appealing and interactive for the reader. We look forward to our continued work together!

It is a pleasure to work with Trellis Concepts. Samantha Angel has assembled a team that brings a variety of skills and experience to any project that we’ve worked on together.
