They say that we are respectful, careful, invaluable, rigorous, reliable, rare, fun and renowned. That’s the short version. If you have two minutes, read the slightly longer version:
It is always a challenge to find a design firm that (a) spends the time to really understand the character and nuances of the brand, (b) actually gets it and (c) has the talent to execute work that tells our brand story in an elegant and compelling fashion. Frank and his team at Viva & Co. are one of those rare firms that do all three with style and sensitivity. Plus, it’s great to know that they will do whatever it takes to get the job done, no matter how tight the deadline.
Vice President, Communications
New York Life Insurance Company
Frank and his team always listen carefully to our briefs and always respect our perspective, but then return with ideas and concepts that lift the project to a much higher level. He is careful with budgets and respects our timelines. In short, Viva & Co. are a delight to work with and I would warmly recommend them.
Director, Community Affairs
George Weston Limited
Frank is conscientious, creative, fun and professional. I would happily recommend him to anyone – except our direct competitors – he is too good.

A terrific debut from Viva, an award-winning illustrator and frequent cover artist for The New Yorker, this sleek and stylish travelogue follows a lone cyclist on a continuous path that runs from first page to last.
The New York Times
This is one of those rare picture books that deserves a place not only on a child's bookshelf but in an art museum – and would be equally at home in both.
The Boston Globe
An illustrator and designer of considerable renown in this country and elsewhere, Frank Viva has entered new territory via his first book for children. It would be a shame, though, to limit the readership of Along a Long Road; it will appeal to any and all whose eyes (and minds) light up when visual pleasures, not to mention the call of the open road, beckon.
