“Diane and I have similar interests, one of which is writing. Over the years I’ve been impressed by the quality of her writing, the inventiveness of her approach and the ability to keep fresh and alive in the doing of it. Diane is so resourceful, able to help others in the crafting of their message and the creating of its delivery. She is a Canadian treasure.”

“My experience with Diane Roblin-Lee was very positive from a number of viewpoints:

  1. She was both flexible and maintained high standards through the process of producing the book
  2. byDesign Media served our needs on a quick and felicitous manner
  3. Her editor did a very good job and allowed me to introduce another editor into the process
  4. She facilitated the printing of the book itself, a step beyond
  5. The prices were competitive and reasonable
  6. Diane has a very creative side that produced a beautiful book

I recommend Diane and byDesign Media.”

“For me Diane has created many newsletters, designed and published my first book, and is collaborating on the creation of my website as part of an integrated promotional strategy, including many other creative inputs such as banner design etc.

I would be lost without her – as a professional associate and as a friend.

As an Englishman we don’t lavish praise unless it is deserved.

Concerning Diane and byDesign media, let me make it simple for you:

Quality of work: First class professional

Creativity: Excellent. Diane always comes up with superb surprises, beyond what I would have thought of.

Work ethic: Awesome.

Deadlines: Always met even though I have thrown things at her at the last moment.

Patience: As a novice writer I gave her a really hard time. Her patience with me was amazing, but when I pushed too far she pushed back in a most gracious and professional manner. As a consequence, our working relationship is better, and our friendship is stronger.

Diane is a special and unique talent. If she is able to accommodate your needs you will be thrilled with the results and blessed by the experience.”

“Both professional and personable, Diane Roblin-Lee did an awesome job reformatting the third edition of Brontosaurus Brunch: A Smorgasbord of Dinosaur Delights. She brought creativity, expertise and enthusiasm to the entire project. Jacorn Press is pleased to add by Design Media to its book-building team.”

“Diane’s first book, My Father’s Child, continues to be the ‘classic’ which is ‘must’ reading for every pastor, pastor’s child, and every member who wants to know how to bless their pastor and his family.”

“In the past 10 years I have had the pleasure of working with Diane on several book projects. Four of the book projects have gone on to win awards and others should have! I whole heartedly recommend Diane as a capable and creative editor, designer and writer and would not hesitate to call upon her in the future.”

“We have used Diane for various jobs which include graphic design, writing our newsletters, video design and production, banners, etc., and she does an amazing job. Her price and delivery times are both excellent. We would highly recommend using her services.”

“I have recently had the pleasure of working with Diane Roblin-Lee of byDesign Media to publish a very special book to commemorate the 100th year anniversary of Hiway Church in Barrie ON. This was my first foray into the publishing and printing world and I found Diane to be very accommodating and easy to work with throughout the process. Above all else, I valued the patience that Diane showed in helping us finalize the look and feel of the book. It was never an issue to make a few sudden changes and the end product was a beautiful representation of our church over the past 100 years. It will remain a fixture on my coffee table for many years to come. Thank you Diane!”

“Diane’s tireless effort and willingness to go the extra mile to see the job done right makes her a great team member and project support.”

“Diane Roblin-Lee you know what your authors need and you meet the need. I couldn’t have asked for a better publisher! God bless you and keep you!
Words can’t express how I’m feeling right now as I look at the finished product of something that started off as a small revelation, but which ended up transforming my entire world. It means a lot to me and I’m just so, so grateful that God has helped me accomplish the dream He put on my heart many years ago!”

“Diane designed the book covers for my three devotional books. As well, she did the interior layout and added photos to one book. She did an exceptional job! I appreciated her insights and professional suggestions. She listened to what I wanted and was able to capture my thoughts in the design of the covers.
Also, Diane designed my new business logo, business cards and one-sheet. Fantastic job! She made me look good.
I highly recommend her.”

“Diane has been a pleasure to work with. She has a wonderful glowing personality and it shines through her work. I think anyone who has worked with Diane would say that she is a very professional person, focused on delivering a high quality product and that she’s also a person with great wit and sense of humor.
Diane has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and I’ve been lucky enough to have been able to use her as a sounding board on multiple occasions. It’s for these reasons that I highly recommend working with Diane!”

“I have found it easy to be impressed with Diane, and valued the time and energy she has put into the creative presence she brings to whatever she does. Her most recent work, the “My Life Journals”, is something that stands out. The Journal is a tremendous way for generations to engage, and the family thread to be woven into the next generation as well. Well done Diane!”

“What an amazing person Diane Roblin-Lee is!! Her work is always done with excellence and creative design. These traits reflect her heart. I’m proud to call her my friend.”

“The Presence of God is all over Diane Roblin-Lee…PUBLISHER & FRIEND EXTRAORDINAIRE!”
