-Bill Blake, Director at AMS Planning & Research

Garrett‘s penmanship for our spice company cleverly mixed humor, history, and a bit of wit into each and every product. The result is a collection of spices, each with a distinct personality, that reads more like a book than a standard product catalog. We highly recommend working with Garrett
