Brenda McClearen is a delight to work with. She makes magic with her keen sense of trends, style and her trusty camera. I normally dread photo shoots but Brenda makes it easy and fun. [Ruth Graham]

McClearen Design is as good as it gets. They've designed, typeset and prepared for press two books I've been part of, and they designed and oversee my website. I couldn't be happier with their work or with Brenda, Terri and Amanda as people. There is no part of the creative process they can't handle wonderfully for any size project. I recommend McClearen Design to friends and I'm proud to recommend them here. [Rob Simbeck, author - Nashville]

Back in 1996 I had a dream of launching a small record label that specialized in old-time instrumental music. I was directed to Brenda McClearen at McClearen Design Studios and we began a creative relationship that is still going strong... 15 years later. My business would never have been as successful without the talents of Brenda McClearen and Terri Morris at McClearen Design Studios. Together we created artistically unique CD covers, catalogs, postcard mailers and point of purchase display headers that helped make my business a frontrunner in the gift market music industry. Thanks McClearen!'s been fantastic working with you all these years! [Steve Swann - Cumberland Music]

I have worked with McClearen Design on two projects, both with extremely successful outcomes. This is a firm that knows how to meet a deadline. I so admire that quality. I've found them accessible, responsive, and delightfully creative. [Stellasue Lee, Ph.D.

I just cannot say enough about the profesionals at McClearen Design! These gals are the best! [Ronnie Reno - Bluegrass Entertainer]


For the last 10 years, McClearen Design has done all of my art and I am always astounded at the level of quality that is accomplished. They catch my vision and take it to a fresh, beautifully, stunning level. Their designs not only look fantastic, but they find a way to make statements with their art. They stay knowledgeable of the current styles and trends, and I appreciate that. There is no better design firm than McClearen Design Studios. [Allison Speer]

Brenda McClearen and her group of extremely talented and creative people are simply the best there is. Being in the business of entertainment and related product creation it is of supreme importance to my company that we be connected to  a source of graphic artistry that can take a project and move it from an idea to a reality, be it a CD cover, a total book art design, an online marketing promotion site, DVD design or promotional photography.  McClearen does it all, and I know of no one that does it better. For many years McClearen has been my first and only graphic design destination in any creative adventure that arises. Bravo, McClearen. [Stan Hitchcock - Hitchcock

My friends at McClearen Design have always created unique, eye-catching art for any occasion, accompanied with a timely and loving attitude.  [Les Leverett, Former Grand Ole Opry Photographer]

For over twenty years, McClearen Design has been the artistic directors for the Burchfield Brothers. Along with producing beautiful art that is eye catching and relevant, they also have greatly enhanced our career with constructive council in web design, social networking and marketing. These are the things that will keep us going another twenty years!

Thank you from the Burchfield Brothers!
[Jonathan and Benji Burchfield]

When I found myself in need of a graphic designer, I had the good fortune of being directed to McClearen Design. Needing a lot of understanding and direction with three books now completed, Brenda McClearen provided that and more. Her expert guidance, along with an incredibly talented support staff, delivered for me quality results in the most professional manner. If you're looking for something special, unique and refreshing, McClearen Design is the place for expert graphics and design in the most creative fashion. [Jerry Crutchfield - writer/producer]

I wholeheartedly recommend McClearen Design to anyone for expert photography and graphic design. I have known and worked with Brenda McClearen for over twenty years and have always found her and her staff to be professional in every way with prompt, creative service at a reasonable price.  I have used McClearen Design for event photos, advertising banners, CD production and even the publication of books. It is without reservation that I recommend McClearen Design. [Steve W. Mauldin Nashville Producer/Arranger/ Composer]

I found McClearen Design Studios through the recommendation of a major printing house in Nashville. I paid them a visit and explained the creative vision for my brand of Revolutionary War and Colonial period historical novels. Brenda and her team fully understood my vision and delivered award winning results. I always get compliments on the design work of my books and I proudly tell my customers that it was all produced by Tennessee folks. From covers to illustrations, to text pages, they design high quality output, ready for print at the big printing houses or print on demand with Lightning Source. They even allowed me access to the studio for the editing sessions, putting up with my perfectionism! That's why I know, from personal direct observation, that they are good people to have as business partners on your production team. McClearen Design has designed two novels for me, "Bonny Kate's Honeymoon" (2009) and "Song of the Shenandoah" (2011). I highly recommend their work and reasonable rates for all kinds of publishing and visual marketing needs.
