“We raised $4.8 million and Friday [Jan 19, 2024] was the groundbreaking! I have to tell you that your material was the key marketing element for a bunch of the large grants, especially the $1.5 million from the Pikes Peak Library District. What a great day it was Friday!”

Director of Marketing & Creative, Space Foundation

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the beautiful shuttle artwork and designs you recently created for us. Everyone who has seen them loves them. NASA remarked “the artwork is breathtaking,” from Mike Gentry, Media Resource Center, Johnson Space Center and “wow”, I looked at the art work – it is beautiful,” from Edward K. Fein, Intellectual Property Counsel, NASA Johnson Space Center. I’ve personally worked closely with you for over eight years and can say without a doubt your work and creativity is second to none. I’ve become dependent upon both of you as I know anything you do for me will surpass my expectations and will also be of the finest quality and on time to meet my deadlines. You are also a joy to work with!”

CDOT Project Manager

Crystal Peak Design has supplied amazing drone footage throughout the life cycle of the I-25 North Segment 6 construction project. Their videos and photographs have been instrumental showing the rapid progress from a unique aerial perspective. They are of the highest quality and our project stakeholders and partners have commented on how helpful they are to visualize the massive work that our project has been able to accomplish.”

Dwight D. Jones

CDE Former Commissioner of Education

“It is my pleasure to tell you about my work experience with Crystal Peak Design, LLC. Susanne Arens and Lourn Eidal were highly recommended to me and with great reason—they are fantastic to work with and their product is nothing less than exceptional!
“…[W]hen I was superintendent of Fountain-Fort Carson School District, Crystal Peak created for us a new corporate identity, logo and letterhead. They also facilitated the direction and production of a DVD to raise awareness of the district among newcomers to the area. The end product was top-notch; in fact, the mailer in which the DVD was encased received an award for outstanding design.
“…Crystal Peak worked with the Colorado Department of Education’s special programs unit to create a DVD highlighting the benefits of Response to Intervention. This project was extremely challenging both in it’s concept and filming schedule. Yet those responsible for the project couldn’t be more pleased with the results!
“Crystal Peak Design and the people who comprise the company are consummate professionals—I recommend them to you without reservation. Their work is exemplary, and I am confident that you also with find that to be true.”

Paul Chavoustie

Former Mayor of Granby CO

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Crystal Peak Design for about 8 years. They always exceed my expectation in design work, and their ability to turn work around quickly (which isn’t always easy to do). They are the consummate professionals! In the past two years they’ve helped us rebrand the town of Granby, design the Visitors Center, our train depot, created multiple printed pieces, and many presentations. I always enjoy seeing the creative work they produce and always receive many compliments on their work. Thanks Crystal Peak for sharing your great talent with us all!”

Cami Bremer

Regional Director, American Heart Association

On behalf of the Pikes Peak Division of the American Heart Association, I want to thank you… As in years, past (the Annual Heart Ball) would not have happened without the tremendous work you did, on both our Logistics Committee and Printing and Graphics. Your eye for design and attention to detail allowed for an event unsurpassed in elegance and beauty. We have received many compliments from guests awed by the evening.”


Gary M. Heckman, P.E.

Construction Manager Lead, AECOM

I would like to recommend Ms. Susanne Arens and her public information staff at Crystal Peak Design without reservation for future work on construction projects of any caliber. I have known and worked alongside Ms. Arens for the past twenty-four months on the Pikes Peak Avenue project, and in that short time she has proven to be an ambitious woman of the highest moral conviction and character; competent and capable in public information outreach and a team player who can be counted on to support the project and the construction team. On the Pikes Peak Avenue Construction project, Ms. Arens employed staff member, Mr. Lourn Eidal to assist her in contacting local business representatives and residential home owners near the project. Both Ms. Arens and Mr. Eidal have proven to be organized and punctual with respect to meeting attendance and client contact. Both have been a real pleasure to work with.”​

Gail Whalen

Director, Peterson Air & Space Museum

Susanne and Lourn at Crystal Peak Design did a stellar job redesigning our website at the Peterson Air and Space Museum. They took a lot of time explaining the web process, made great improvements to our original ideas, and always made sure they understood what we needed. Once the web site was up, we had immediate hits.

If you want to work with people who “get it”, Crystal Peak Design is “It”!”

Bernie Guevara, P.E.

Senior Project Manager, Stantec

As our sub-consultant to the CDOT Powers Widening (Between Fountain to Platte) project, I just want to express Stantec’s sincere appreciation for the excellent job you provided us, CDOT and the traveling public. Your proactive approach on handling Customer Tickets, Press Releases and Hotline phone calls made our project coordination with CDOT, Peterson Air Force Base and most importantly the motoring public very efficient.

We surely hope that our partnership would continue for years to come and on future projects with CDOT and/or other entities. Thanks again for all the work you’ve provided for the above CDOT project.”​

Chairman Emeritus and Managing Director, Carnick & Kubick

Now that our brochure has been printed and our web site is up and running, I’d like to stop and offer my deepest and most profound appreciation…for all the fine work you have done in bringing these projects to fruition. A day does not go by that we don’t receive the highest complements on our brochure. Likewise, our website has the look and feel of an extraordinarily professional organization which even surprises us…and yet is easy to use and very visitor-friendly. In final analysis Susanne, Crystal Peak delivered on each and every promise you made and we are extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to work with you.”​

SEMA Construction logo

Jud Barlow

Former Operation Manager, SEMA Construction

Over the last 12 months I have had the opportunity to work with Crystal Peak Design, specifically Susanne Arens on SH21 Powers and Airport Road Project. She was the public information officer for the project.

She and her company were always ahead of the curve when it came to keeping the company informed in a positive and expeditious manner. Crystal Peak did a great job coordinating with SEMA, as well as CDOT during all phases of construction to keep the public informed. She also was very expedient and professional when answering hotline calls, and always solicits information from all parties involved.

Crystal Peak Design would be a great asset on any project!

I met with our graphics group yesterday, Crystal Peak Design. They are such great people, I have been working with them for 20 plus years and they have won many awards with me and our advertising. Best part is they are so cost minded and always searching for the best deal.”​
