"In addition to being a wonderful artist, Michael is a serious consultative designer, branding specialist, and web developer. I have used him repeatedly in support of my large Global/National clients. This includes his work for the launch of a Federal Cyber Security Operations Center, which now serves 20+ Agencies and 150,000 employees in 50 countries. His alternative designs and advisory support led to a well-received logo package that ultimately became the basis of that organization's Global branding and communications strategy. I also used Michael to develop the web site for a National disaster restoration organization, for which he continued to serve as its on-call web master. Michael exhibits an advisory approach that showcases his expert knowledge and facilitates a collaborative process with me and my clients that is both productive and cost effective."

"Auger Artwork Studios was a breath of fresh air! I randomly contacted Michael after viewing some of his animation on a comedy website. I told him what I was looking for and what my budget was. He told me what was possible for my budget and he gave me an estimate for the projects completion. He finished the job a week early and it rocked. My dealings with Auger Artwork Studios were pretty minimal, but I will definitely use them again and tell others about their work. I have had horrible experiences dealing with people over the Internet (Craigslist) I ended up wasting time and money with people who couldn't do the job. Michael was great. I will stop there so I don't sound like an info-mercial."

"If there is a handyman for illustrations, Michael Auger would fit that bill. There isn’t a medium or format that would prevent him from illustrating it in some form or another... It’s probably better to ask what hasn’t Michael Auger done... Most of his work is of a light-hearted, silly nature. However, he has the ability to appease a more serious project as his portfolio proves... While viewing Auger’s work, it’s hard not to enjoy the almost goofy side of life that he portrays so well. The work is creative, lively, and doesn’t give a sense of arrogance so many artists exude onto the audience."

"Michael was fantastic. We recently started a new youth athletic association in the Olney-Sandy Spring Area. We had some ideas and brought them to Michael. He was incredibly fast and helpful. No matter how many times we asked for an adjust or two it was never a problem. We went in wanting just one logo done and ended up doing three. We would definitely recommend Michael and will continue to use him in the future for all our graphic needs."
— Casey Mcnamara
"Michael's help has been a fantastic today. I've never created a logo before and with his help we had one done in less than a day.

I would recommend Mike to anyone who needs a new logo design."
