He is a pro.

Mark worked for us at Fatherly [for 9 months] as our consulting, part-time head of product, but also of design, ux, and project management. He is incredibly skilled at each of these functions, immensely creative and talented, and really helped move our organization forward. He is a pro.”

Under After, led by Mark Forscher, came to us from a very good recommendation and still managed to exceed our high expectations.

Under After, led by Mark Forscher, came to us from a very good recommendation and still managed to exceed our high expectations. For our renaming project, Mark expertly guided us through the process of selecting from a variety of creative naming options he created and selected based on our own goals and expectations for the brand. For our visual identity, Mark produced a fantastic look that met every single one of our goals. Throughout both processes he was professional, prompt, and a pleasure to work with. We will unquestionably work with Mark on future projects and I could not more strongly recommend him and Under After.

Over the last year and a half, Mark developed Lyte's brand identity and designed its consumer experiences and with each new project, the caliber of his work and direction proved to be only more exceptional. Not only was Mark key to translating complex concepts into refined, fresh and intuitive user experiences, he did so creatively while bringing focus to the vision of the company. Working with him was always a privilege and a pleasure, for he is a supportive team player with multi-faceted talent and expertise. His product design and leadership skills would be assets to any organization. Couldn't recommend Mark more and hope to work with him again in the future.

Mark came very highly recommended from a past client, and we could not have been happier with the work.

Mark came very highly recommended from a past client, and we could not have been happier with the work. Mark helped develop and craft our company's visual identity. He walked the whole team through the process, helped us understand what the materials were communicating, and was extremely responsive and flexible as the work unfolded. I will be happy to refer people to Mark!"

Really enjoyed working with Mark and strongly recommend him!

Mark worked with us closely to hash out a txt-based digital assistant (getkeeper.com). He helped us with initial direction, designing/building our landing pages (in a unique format, since there is no app) and provided valuable input on the tone/brand of the product. Really enjoyed working with Mark and strongly recommend him!"

We brought Mark on-board to do our brand identity and he absolutely nailed it.

Working with Mark was awesome! He laid down the process during our first meeting, he took the time to understand our needs and then he went to work. Couldn't be happier with the vision that he came up with—it's fun, playful, and oh-so-right!"

He's fun to work with which is no small thing.

It's every entrepreneur's dream to collaborate with someone who doesn't shy away from great ideas, yet respects and builds upon the vision.

Mark was really easy to work with. Not only did he deliver outstanding work, but he made the process feel right. Highly recommend connecting with Mark - I know I will again soon."

Highly, highly recommended.

We hired Mark to develop our brand identity (from ground up). He was a pleasure to work with. Mark was extremely flexible and worked with us to find the best paths forward as we progressed. He was able to corral, interpret and distill multiple (and largely disparate) opinions during the process—which was no small task in our group. Mark is an elite-level talent in multiple areas, and importantly, a man of his word."

Mark consistently delivers high-quality work with an honest, strategy-driven perspective.

Mark was a tremendous asset for Spur. He helped us architect and design our consumer + business, mobile + desktop experiences, while simultaneously developing our core brand identity from start to finish. He is a dedicated team-player and very reliable. I can't wait to continue collaborating with Mark on all of my current and future projects."

Mark is more than an extremely talented designer. He is a great leader of a design process. He also brings unique product insights.

He deeply understands the product, and applies his high attention to detail and empowering communication skills to produce a tight product. He is truly exceptional. I couldn't provide a higher recommendation for someone."

Each time I was more and more impressed by how quickly he understood my goal and how well he translated it.

I first worked with Mark when I contracted Under After to design a logo for a site I was building. He knocked it out of the park so I hired him to design the layout of one of the sites...then another...and another. Each time I was more and more impressed by how quickly he understood my goal and how well he translated it into images. Will be using him again for whatever else design work I need. If he'd take a job at my company, I'd hire him."

A fantastic one-man design department for us.

I worked with Mark as a full-service designer — conceptual, information architecture, wireframing, design, and implementation — for about a year on a new product for Daylife. He did an outstanding job of taking in a huge number of desires and ideas and making them concrete, simple, and clear.

The product he helped us design won many raves from our clients as incredibly easy to use and navigate, much of which led directly from Mark's contribution. I also felt that Mark did outstanding work communicating with a large team on needs, feedback, concerns, and possible directions. Overall, he was a fantastic one-man design department for us."
