“I wanted to find an artist to make a top quality CD album package and didn’t know where to turn. My producer recommended Dick Reeves as one of the best in the nation, and am I glad he did! When I saw what Dick had created for clients from indies like me to world famous Grammy winners, I was amazed. He has the eye for color and composition and the feel for what makes a compelling product for vastly differing audiences.
Dick took time to listen to my music and background stories then created the album package that was just what I was hoping to have. I also had him develop new name branding and logo to go with it. And we didn’t stop there. I asked Dick to update my website with all the new formats and branding that he created for the album, and he tied it all together beautifully! I’m very proud to have my name on it and to be associated with the fine Mr. Reeves! And, after he’s listened to your story, wait until you hear some of his! Rio King, Rocking RK Records.”
So, I’m having dinner with Dick, we’re doing some catching up and I’m telling him about a new album I’ve been producing for a dear old friend of mine, Paul Fagan. Of course Dick asked about the artwork for the album. I said, “Paul and his wife Susie are going to use a design template from CD Baby.” Dick poked at his asparagus and asked, “How much did the album cost to produce?” I told him (let’s just say it was a figure between $25,000 and $75,000). Dick looked at me and said, “And you’re not willing to invest a small percentage of that budget on a first class CD package?” My memory banks immediately scrolled through all the projects that Dick had done for me over the last 40 years — Three Christmas albums, Fromholz albums, Austin All Stars albums, a Frummox II album, countless album covers for friends and associates, even the logo for the Saxon Pub, a club I built in 1990. All of these projects looked great and fared well . . . Hell, the Saxon Pub has been opened now for almost 30 years! “You know Dick,” I said, “You’ve got a point.” I took a long pull off my beer and after dinner I went home and called Paul and Susie Fagan.

We’re sure glad Craig had dinner with Dick that evening. “In it for Love”was a tremendously important and personal project for us and we couldn’t be more pleased with the beautiful package Dick created. Presenting this exceptional music to the public in the perfect package is a wonderful way to kick off 2019. PAUL AND SUSIE FAGAN
Working with Dick as he designed my CD “Chasing The Song” was a pleasure and wonderful, pain free experience.
With a keen eye for detail and creative imagination, his professional touch, quality of work, and on time delivery, revealed to me why Dick Reeves is a Grammy winning graphic artist. Thank you Dick. SHAKE RUSSELL
Working with Dick Reeves has been a real pleasure. He is a true southern gentleman and for all his genius and talents and Grammy win, he is also a very humble man. He took all the bits and pieces of my music and put together artwork that tied it all together. After working with Dick, I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. I can’t wait to finish the next album to see what he will put together for that one. BIANC DE LEON
“I’ve worked with Dick, and have seen much that he has done. A top notch consummate professional designer, award winning -- including a Grammy, completely knowledgeable concerning visual semiotics -- but especially grounded in the Austin and Texas versions of same. And a very, very nice human DANNY GARRET. Artist
“Dick Reeves design is incredible artistry with professional know how and delivery behind it. Working with Dick Reeves is a genuine pleasure and delight. I’m thrilled with our company’s logo and Dick works hard for your ideas and culture to come through in the media and brand representation created by his team.” HOPE YOUNG of Center For Music Therapy
Dick has done an outstanding job for two of my musician clients in designing exciting and memorable artwork for their CD’s. The first project worked magic on a very small budget and the results looked first class! The second project turned chaos into creativity, working with challenging personalities and deadlines. The results were amazing. If you have graphic art needs, and album artwork in particular, you should run, not walk, to Dick Reeves. CATHERINE TABOR
