Here are a few of the very kind words my clients have written about working with me:
“Becca understood what we were trying to convey. She was very easy to work with and came up with some very creative packaging designs that people compliment all the time. The design matches our personality. She gets it.
We requested a lion logo from our family crest. There are a lot of lions in logos, but Becca made ours distinctive by turned the lion’s paws and tail into fleur-de-lis as a nod to St. Louis.
Building a wine brand can be time-consuming and expensive, so it’s important to find someone who understands what you’re trying to do. Wineries are Becca’s niche. It’s what she specializes in, and it shows. She knew what was best for our brand. The value is definitely worth it.
Although it is important to discuss how pleased we are with the final logo designed by Becca, we would also like to share the importance of working with a designer who says, “yes, I can try this” or “yes, I can do this”. It is evident that this person’s attitude on brand development is to empower all of the ideas given by her client, while using her expertise to steer the client in the right direction. Unlike our first designer, Becca never told us “no, I won’t try this” during the logo design.
There are, in fact, many more positive comments to share about Becca’s work ethic and performance. In keeping with our brand identity of succinct and meaningful, we hope the meat and potatoes of Becca’s creativity and positivity has been transposed through this recommendation. We would like to officially thank you here, on paper Becca, and say how pleased we are to continue the design and branding process with you.”
– Tom Leonard, Leonard Wine Company
“We really liked Becca’s tools for pinpointing the type of wine drinker instead of just the age group we wanted to target. Becca really gets to know her clients and helps them zone in on their target market. Becca was extremely patient with us and was able to pull two generations of ideas together.
Becca is in tune with our brand and has her finger on the pulse of the wine industry as it grows and evolves. She brings an infectious excitement to her work and designs. She is an amazing individual and has been a godsend! We couldn’t have done it without her.”
– Jeanne Hunt & Lindsay Clausen, KC Wineworks
“Rebecca walked us through the steps and gave us the answers we needed when we didn’t even know what questions to ask. Rebecca was also very patient with us. She’s good about listening and adding little details while keeping to what was necessary from a design standpoint.”
– Betty Bingham, Bingham Family Vineyards
“Becca is the consummate professional and a delight to work with! My business partner and I are not “fluent” in the tech world, by any means, and Becca always spoke to us in easy-to-understand, respectful terms and tones. She brought savvy consideration to design options as well as functionality, keeping our brand’s tone and client base top of mind.
Now that our beautiful e-commerce site is live, Becca is always prompt in answering questions and helping me navigate the site’s dashboard. Her gracious, thoughtful attitude has made what could be a rocky transition be smooth. I can’t recommend Becca and her work highly enough!
Thank you, dear Becca. Your gracious, thoughtful attitude in this process is most welcome. I honestly can’t emphasize that enough to you. I’m so sincerely grateful.”
– Sarah Bowen Shea from Another Mother Runner
“Becca is the ultimate professional: prompt, hard-working, responsive, and creative. Loved her energy and process, and executed our vision perfectly.”
– Dimity McDowell Davis from Train Like a Mother Club
“Rebecca Ritz is so amazing at what she does. While I have a number of skills, keeping my cool while having a new look created is not one of them. My brand is brand new, and I’m so nervous about putting it out into the world that I need a steady hand, kind words, and exceptional skills in guiding me to the right colors and images to convey what it is I love to do for clients and students. She did this by guiding me through a number of questions about my business, likes/dislikes, and the types of clients I want to draw in.
Enter the amazing, Rebecca. She patiently helped me through my confusion and indecision. When I got confused about colors, she asked all the right questions and helped me to choose a palate that I love and doesn’t blind my web visitors (which could definitely happen if I have control of the color scheme!). Now, I have a new look to unveil that is cozy and supportive to the needs of my social media clients.”
– Kristy Meyer, Owner of Online Bridge
Rebecca was a guest lecturer for my VESTA “Marketing for Small Wineries” class that I teach online. She provided the class with an insightful lecture on winery branding and wine label design. Many of our students are in the process of starting a winery, so the material presented was right on target for their needs. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge with us!
– Patty Held, VESTA (Viticulture Enology Science Technology Alliance) Instructor
Becca is extremely patient and understanding of how hard it is to fit in website development tasks while operating a working winery. While I often missed deadlines she NEVER did. She was available for quick questions to guide me through uploading content to the new site. She helped us zero in on the exact style and content we wanted. I love the look of our updated website. The process and the outcome were worth the effort. Already we have had positive response from people who have viewed our new website.
– Phyllis Meagher, Owner of Meramec Vineyards
I attended a Social Media seminar for MOPACA (Midwest Alpaca Owners and Breeders Assoc). Rebecca and her partner, Kristy Meyer, did a great job of keeping the entire group on the same page (with varying levels of expertise), kept it from being boring for those who could be considered skilled, showed how to use multiple tools in combination and had a great follow-up to make sure that we were using the new skills we learned. I found it a great value and put many of the tips into use the next week. If you have a group that needs to understand Social Media and which tools can make the best impact on your businesses, Rebecca and her partner should be your “go to” gals!
– Brian Willsey, Alpaca owner
I cannot say enough good things about Becca and Bauerhaus Design. From our first meeting, Becca asked all the right questions in order to glean insight into our business so we could express, through our website, who we are and what makes our business unique. Becca encouraged me to be myself and reach our customers on a personal level.
She also respected my somewhat limited technical capabilities and (patiently) walked me through using WordPress and social media to our best advantage. Becca is readily available to field questions and offer support whenever I need it.
Becca genuinely wants OTC Homes to succeed and does everything possible to play her part. Designing the perfect website was only the beginning. Becca keeps me up to date on trends and insights so our website never gets stale. Since I am the IS Department for OTC Homes, she is invaluable by keeping me informed about my software and answering any questions I may have. She even anticipates software updates I may need to make in order to take full advantage of my capabilities. And Becca makes sure they get done – often times doing them herself for me.
Becca is supportive not only of my website but of my business as a whole, and has been essential in moving OTC Homes forward. I truly do not know what I would do without Becca as a member of my team. I highly recommend Becca and Bauerhaus Design to anyone looking to promote their business.
– Melissa Meise, owner of One Talented Carpenter
After working with another designer on our logo and getting no where, Bauerhaus Design was a breath of fresh air. The response time was prompt, and the quality of work was excellent. Becca really got to know our brand and even helped us fine tune it. She did a fantastic job taking direction from three different stakeholders with differing opinions, as well as taking the lead when needed. We’re so pleased with the creative elements she developed on our behalf, and we love our new logo. I highly recommend Bauerhaus Design.”

I was first introduced to Becca at a business function and saved her business card. Months later when I wanted to build a new website for my business I thought of her first because I wanted to work with someone that I could develop a relationship that would get to know me and what I was looking for in marketing for my company. I liked the fact that I could sit down with her face-to-face and she would listen to my needs and concerns about my website development. Each company is different and I wanted to make sure that my needs were listened to. I was very impressed with her ideas and help. Once my website was developed I also appreciated the fact that she took the time to teach me how to work on particular needs I had in my website and social media marketing. As time has gone on I have also been pleased with how I can reach her easily by email to update minor things for me, or do major enhancements. Each one is billed appropriately and it has been very economical for me as a small business. I love the fact that Word Press is a platform that I can easily update myself or reach out to Becca for help and ideas on how to do something. I’m so excited about the many possibilities that Word Press holds for my business in the future as I grow and my website grows as well.

Our family would like to convey our deepest appreciation for the exceptional work you did designing our logo and wine labels. After a brief discussion on what we hoped to convey with the logo and labels, you captured that vision and translated into a powerful graphic that will be used by our family winery for years to come. I’ve worked with many graphic designers, but none rival your ability to capture what’s desired and deliver it on time and under cost. We wish you continued success and look forward to our future collaborative efforts together. Simply put, you are the best!
– Bob Eachus, owner Thousand Oaks Winery
“After a long process of researching websites based on initial impact, ease of use, e-commerce integration and the ability for user updates, we decided to use Rebecca Ritz of Bauerhaus Design for our website remodel. She had created a number of sites that seemed to tick all our requirements, so we contacted Rebecca to get the project underway. Once the design process started, it seemed to flow very well with Rebecca being able to translate our ideas into an online presence that we are very happy with. We had very specific ideas as to the flow and impact of each page and Rebecca did a great job in translating that into template that we can now manage on a daily basis. The ability to manage our site has been outstanding and we are very happy with Rebecca’s process of consultation and implementation. I would highly recommend Rebecca Ritz of Bauerhaus Design for any website based development that you have or envision.
– Whare Heke of Moana Nui Designs
“We contracted with Rebecca to design our new company logo. I was so impressed at how she was able to capture the essence of our business in an elegant yet simple visual depiction. She listened carefully to our needs, quickly and expertly created a range of options, and responded quickly and expertly to our comments and questions. I highly recommend her!”
– Phil Gordon, KIPS
We really appreciate your flexible and responsive working style and will gladly recommend your work to others.
– Marilee Comfort, KIPS
It was always a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is a very talented and efficient designer. Every project she worked on for my companies was executed with great creative and technical skill. One of the best compliments I have ever heard about a designer came from our printing company about Rebecca. According to the printing company, her files were always prepped with perfection, and from my companies’ perspectives, her designs were always fully developed with the clients’ unique needs in mind, and of course, they were beautiful too.

“I have been both a colleague and a client of Rebecca. Becca produces excellent work in a timely and effecient manner, while ensuring that the strategic direction is understood and delivered upon. She asks questions to truly understand the needs of the client and then develops creative visual solutions. She has developed design solutions for both print and digitial projects and understands the requirements of the media vehicles being used. I continue to use Becca for design work and highly recommend her to others.”
– Mark Witzling
Becca is extremely creative and dependable. When Becca says a project will be done…it is done and within budget. I would highly recommend Becca for any graphic/visual project. She has a great, natural talent.
– Terri McEachern, Executive Director of the Museum of Transportation and Author of Mable’s Magic Spell
It is a difficult task to take an idea birthed in the mind’s eye of another and create a pleasing design…but Rebecca did just that for me. I hired her to design a cycling jersey and was incredibly impressed with both her service and the final result. Througout the process, Rebecca’s attention to detail, expertise, personable manner and timely responses produced a result which exceeded my expectations! I will most definitely use her design services in the future.
– Bianca Schmidt
I have known Rebecca professionally for the past nine or ten years. During that time, she has handled all of the graphic design needs of my small jewelry design company, from logo creation to print ads to catalog updates. She has also served as my web advisor, designing my web site, as well as pushing me to embrace the internet as a business tool. Rebecca has a wide breadth of knowledge of graphic design. As a working designer, she is aware of the latest technologies, both in terms of tools of the trade, and actual production techniques. Her design ideas are vast; she seems as able to design a slick presentation as a very rustic one, all depending on the needs of my audience. Rebecca has great communication skills. I rely upon her to lead me into unknown design territory, and she is always able to make me understand the why’s and how’s of each project. I feel more aware of the capabilities of graphic design to support my business because of my association with her.
