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.

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!

— 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.
