Testimonials: In the Words of Our Clients and Colleagues

Here is what a few of our clients, part­ners, and col­leagues have to say about Pariah Burke and his asso­ciates.

We were able to do hands on [exer­cis­es] with our own pieces while Pariah taught each [les­son].

— Teresa Maile, Priority Health

I can’t think of any­thing that could have been bet­ter. It was a great class, and I learned a lot from Pariah.

— Teresa Maile, Priority Health

Pariah was very infor­ma­tive and spoke so we would under­stand for begin­ners.

— Teresa Maile, Priority Health

Pariah was amaz­ing. Very friend­ly and walked us through the train­ing in a very sim­ple mat­ter. He was able to teach us a lot of infor­ma­tion in just one day and I didn’t feel over­whelmed.

— Elizabeth Lee, Oracle

Pariah was great. He is very knowl­edge­able and answered every ques­tion we had with con­cise answers.

— Daniel Aguilar, Oracle

[The train­ing] was per­fect.

— Elizabeth Lee, Oracle

The best teach­ing avail­able.

— Andrew Gormley, Oracle

The course [InDesign EPUB Fundamentals by Pariah Burke] is a great asset. Clear, infor­ma­tive and real­ly enjoy­able.

— Rian Magee, Twinbrush

Very thorough!…[Pariah] clear­ly knows a ton about the whole world of eBooks. The InDesign work will help me pro­duce my first eBook with the “enhanced” fea­tures that I didn’t know how to do.

— Tali Edut, Astrostyle

Pariah’s insights into the future and rec­om­men­da­tions for inno­va­tors, artists, authors, and small pub­lish­ers to cap­ture their mar­ket share was most use­ful.

— Fassil Yirgu, Nyala Publishing

Our newslet­ter will now be an inter­ac­tive PDF and we are very excit­ed to start cre­at­ing it!

— Stephanie, Birdville ISD

I like the open con­ver­sa­tion with oth­er atten­dees. I liked that a wide breadth of con­tent was covered…I gained a bet­ter under­stand­ing and more ammu­ni­tion on how to explain that cre­at­ing ePublications, both inter­ac­tive and for eReaders, isn’t just a mag­ic click of a but­ton like man­age­ment seems to think.

— Paul, St. Mary’s Press

I gained con­fi­dence about offer­ing ePUB ser­vices to clients, and excit­ed about this oppor­tu­ni­ty for my business…Most use­ful to me: info on how and where to get ePUBs into the mar­ket, types of for­mats and how and where they’re used.

— Rock Langston, Tomato Graphics

This work­shop pre­sent­ed a com­pre­hen­sive view of the capa­bil­i­ties, tech­nolo­gies and mar­ket­ing of epub­li­ca­tions. Having that end-to-end under­stand­ing opened ideas I did not have before the class.

— Karen B.

Gave me all of the info I would have want­ed to know to start down the path of e-publishing… As a novice InDesign user, I feel a lot more con­fi­dent about being able to design a pub­li­ca­tion and see it pub­lished.

— Sandra Oei, SoVisual

The actu­al demon­stra­tion of how to cre­ate EPUBs, infor­ma­tion about which for­mats are used by which eread­ers, and which fonts, I found most useful…I had not real­ized that it’s that easy to cre­ate a (sim­ple) EPUB.

— Margaret B., Editor

This work­shop came in just in time for my career.

— Michelle W., Freelance Designer

Pariah is a great speak­er and so much fun to lis­ten to. He has a great way of giv­ing both overviews and specifics.

— Aimee Armour-Avant, The Creative Slant

I was very hap­py with the val­ue I received from this webinar…I got a lot more out of it than I had antic­i­pat­ed… It was my birth­day present to myself and I’m so glad I indulged!

— Michelle, Project Design Inc.

A BIG WOW in Artwork & Graphic Images…Every sin­gle bit of it invalu­able.

— Grace F., Designer

I liked Pariah’s intro of him­self: “I like to help peo­ple.” Distilled to the very essence of his pur­pose in life.

— Jan Carpenter, J.L. Carpenter Design

It was all valu­able and enlight­en­ing. Everything--from the valu­able resources, to the hands-on things in InDesign that I hadn’t seen before. I will be using these skills imme­di­ate­ly and in the future.

— Denise, Design4 Graphic & Web Design

This ses­sion has been fan­tas­tic, and I have learned so much. After near­ly 20 years in the print world, I and my cus­tomers rec­og­nize that we must make the change to dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion or face extinc­tion.

— Caroline, Wild Pete Publishing

[I obtained] a clear vision of the world of elec­tron­ic pub­lish­ing.

— Claudio Marconato, Adobe Certified Instructor

Pariah knew his stuff. He was easy going, han­dled the online envi­ron­ment nat­u­ral­ly, and made the par­tic­i­pants feel like he was on their team.

— Andrew G., Designer

You gave me ePublishing and more today. Thank you so much…I can exceed our web stuff and be in more con­trol, give bet­ter infor­ma­tion in bet­ter ways, and give [our pub­li­ca­tions] vavavoom!

— Penny, Genius Solutions

[Pariah has] a way of look­ing at tech­nol­o­gy and find­ing uses for some tools which escape the rest of us.

— Brian S., M2 Media Solutions

Pariah believes that qual­i­ty infor­ma­tion use­ful to cre­atives hap­pens when cre­atives are allowed to indulge their cre­ative pas­sions. His style is wise, patient and enabling; his own pas­sion for the cre­ative world shows in every­thing that he does.

— Samuel John Klein, Graphic and Web Designer

[Pariah has] what it takes to man­age and orga­nize a group of peo­ple, not only in terms of lead­er­ship, but also in terms of care and under­stand­ing. I am real­ly glad to have worked with him.

— Elisabetta Bruno, Designer

Pariah Burke is the very def­i­n­i­tion of “cre­ative genius”. His cre­ative spark and muse is awe­some and inspir­ing. He’s a man of incred­i­ble tal­ent, yet soft spo­ken (at least in per­son), hum­ble and one of the most hard-working men I know.

— Sterling Ledet, Ledet Graphics Training

I found Pariah’s work (both writ­ing and design) to be most cre­ative and his expla­na­tions about how to work effec­tive­ly with [cre­ative soft­ware] extra­or­di­nar­i­ly clear and use­ful for the read­er.

— Karen L. Lew, Book Editor

Pariah has always been an inno­va­tor, a true pio­neer show­ing us a bet­ter tomor­row.

— Rena McDowell, Texas A&M University

Pariah Burke - respect­ed author, train­er, con­sul­tant. I whole heart­ed­ly rec­om­mend him for your con­sult­ing needs.

— Jeff Kew, Fireboycreative

Pariah is one of the most knowl­edge­able design pro­fes­sion­als I know. His knowl­edge is only sur­passed by his will­ing­ness to help oth­ers.

— Carl Heinrichs, Microsoft

Pariah’s knowl­edge is vast (I sus­pect he nev­er sleeps!), but that fact is trumped by his eager­ness to share what he knows. He’s a won­der­ful resource to the graph­ic com­mu­ni­ty!

— Claudia Mccue, Practicalia / Adobe

This man is amaz­ing­ly tal­ent­ed, and there is noth­ing Pariah can’t achieve!

— Kyle Fuqua, Strongfold

Makes learn­ing easy. Couldn’t wish for a bet­ter instruc­tor or con­sul­tant. Easily able to explain com­plex top­ics in under­stand­able ways.

— Katie Hardin, MGM Mirage Design Group

Pariah is one of the most knowl­edge­able design pro­fes­sion­als I know. He nev­er hes­i­tates to answer your tough­est cre­ative and appli­ca­tion ques­tions. He is tru­ly an expert in his field.

— Alexandra Gebhardt, Inside Media Networks

Pariah is an absolute guru. He is THE go-to-digital-man with­out a doubt! He rocks!

— Heather Grimwood, New Zealand

Pariah Burke has been a wealth of infor­ma­tion. Clearly he is a go to per­son when you need assis­tance.

— Rosie Kilmer, Author and Designer

If you want some­one to effec­tive­ly teach your team, this is your go to man. [Pariah] pro­vides need­ed infor­ma­tion quick­ly and effi­cient­ly.

— Rosie Kilmer, Author and Designer

After work­ing with Pariah for sev­er­al years it must be said that there sim­ply is no one bet­ter in the field. His knowl­edge is broad yet focused, help­ful while being instruc­tive, cre­ative while stay­ing on mes­sage.

— Mark Winburn, KnowledgeNet

Excellent instruc­tor!

— Andrew Kavanagh, Retoucher and Photoshop Tutor

When it comes to all things Digital Publishing, Pariah has an ency­clo­pe­dic knowl­edge of where the indus­try has come from, has his fin­ger on the pulse of the present, and knows where it is going.

— Ben Erwin, Powersimple
