“Doug Schneider is the absolute best resource for realistic fruit and flower illustrations.  He created appetizing clementines, tupelo blossoms and mint leaves for the Savannah Bee body care line.  Doug listens carefully to the brief, and delivers original work, beautifully crafted.”

“Doug and I have worked on several projects together over the years (Sam’s Choice salsas for Wal-Mart, and Driscoll’s).  He has two uncommon habits – he always over delivers on time, and he is way too polite to be an illustrator!  I’d work with Doug if I were you.”

I had the privilege to work with Doug during my tenure with Alberto Culver Inc. as Senior Design Manager for Skin Care Division.  Doug provided his illustrations for St. Ive’s beauty care products.

Doug’s illustrations were always on target to meet the packaging objectives and the production time lines.  He has an excellent ability to partner with the art director’s vision and his illustration talents to provide results that are great for the project and the consumer market.”

“Working with Doug is a pleasure.  He meets our demanding deadlines and delivers beautiful, on-target illustrations.  We know he will make certain that the work meets all of our criteria, from a full product redesign to a spot illustration.  He has always come through for us.”

“Doug, I wanted to let you know that we won an “In-House Design Award” from Graphic Design USA for Teresa’s Select Recipes Dressing bottles.  We couldn’t have done it without your beautiful illustrations.  Thanks.”

  • Kim Gifford, Senior Design, Lancaster Colony, Dublin, OH

“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Doug for over 10 years while Creative Director for Landor, San Francisco.

My most memorable experience with Doug happened when I was in a bit of a bind on the Tree Top identity and packaging redesign in 2005.  I called Doug on a Friday desperate for some original imagery that would bring the Tree Top ”canopy” and “orchard” scene ideas to life.  Doug worked over the weekend and delivered two beautiful pieces of art which fully captured the concept – our client was extremely pleased.

If your project is compatible with Doug’s illustration style you won’t find a more pleasant, responsible and talented individual to help you.”
