“Working with Phil Wooley has been a blast. He’s fun to work with, but more importantly, he’s skilled, reliable, creative and laser focused when it comes to his projects. He is also a quick learner of new technology and unselfish when it comes to sharing what he’s learned. I’ve had a good time and have benefited professionally from working with him.”

— Charles Nemitz

“Phil is a very talented graphic artist at Calculated Industries. From internal projects like re-facing our .com to the freshand professional look of much of our retail product and packaging, his creativity and skill shine brightly.”

— Don Simone

“Phil’s graphic arts were the best at the Nevada Appeal when I worked with him. If given the choice he was always my go to guy! Phil had an innate sense of what the customer’s wanted but was still able to incorporate what was actually needed for successful campaigns. Phil is also directly responsible for our winning an award for best two-color add in a state wide print ad awards ceremony in Nevada. If his outstanding skills aren’t enough he’s also a hell of a nice guy and a pleasure to work with. Do yourself a favor and take the opportunity to work with him for fantastic results and down to
earth interaction.
