CLIENTS RESPONSE TO inochi

After meeting with Kristie Paul for the initial job briefing I had a good idea in my head that she was going to
be the right person to complete The Backroom within the limited time frame and budget. Her immediate response to my interview time was the first sign of dedication. I employed inochi to design what was to be
The Backroom and ended up getting a designer, builder, painter, bricklayer and friend. We spent early mornings, late nights and long hours to complete this job and every day inochi seemed to amaze me with their ideas and adaptive re-use concepts for the design and allocated budget. The final design of The Backroom has proven to be more positive than expected and I owe that all to inochi. The amount of work and overtime by inochi staff, meant The Backroom opened in time and has now become one of Sydney's newest hot spots!

inochi was commissioned for the design of our new retail venture – Wild Basket. At the initial stages of consultation, Wild Basket was still in the planning stage and although we had a very clear vision of what we wanted the shop to look and feel like, Kristie successfully brought that vision to life through design and just before opening merchandising and product placement. The design is true to brief and exactly what we had hoped for, plus more. We can't thank Kristie and the inochi team enough for being a part of bringing our dream to reality.

I want to thank Kristie and the team at inochiDESIGNLIFE for all the help and awesome ideas. Its been four months and people still talk about how cool our place looks and they are fighting over which great looking chair to sit on. I believe the quick success we have had has a lot to do with how the cafe/bar environment looks and how inochi have designed it. Thanks for all the hard work and the continued work on INC.!

inochi has been responsible for all Berkelouw design work since November 2009. inochi's approach is always enthusiastic and highly professional. They have the ability to visualise a finished space, while maintaining the independence that is critical to our retail experience. inochi is prompt in their work and have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We have every intention of continuing our relationship with inochi in the future.

Kristie and inochi are simply great. I had some fairly strong ideas about what I wanted. Kristie managed to take my ideas and make them into something so much better than what I could have imagined. She was completely committed to the project. I am so very happy with the end result – I love coming home to my apartment. I am very glad that I made the decision to work with Kristie and inochi, and I look forward to the possibility of working with them again in the future.

Sonoma engaged the services of inochi to design a retail bakery at Paddington. inochi was fantastic, producing an amazing job with the design. inochi's dedication and commitment to the project was outstanding. Kristie and the team at inochi definitely went the extra mile time and again, which we all really appreciated.

inochi DESIGNLIFE helped us open our client's eyes to an amazing new experience at Canturi. inochi's
ability to identify with our brand means we achieve beautiful modern visual merchandise displays (that are also interactive) whilst meeting our clients high expectations. Their creative, smart solutions and professional style is unique and they come highly recommended.

Importantly Kristie and her team at inochi treated the heritage status of our building with sensitivity and
taste. inochi was able to create an office and workshop space that combined the history of the Old Bristol
Arms Hotel with the creativity and professionalism of the Galileo Kaleidoscope business. Perhaps
unsurprisingly this project was not an easy one with many building challenges inherent in such an old
heritage listed building, however, with Kristie's passion as inspiration for all of us, and the dedication
of our builders at Pivotal, we managed to get an outstanding result.

Ms paul has a rare talent of fully visualising a space and making it happen quickly without missing any of
the finite details that make the space what it is. She is open to suggestion and discussion, she steers the
ship but the deckhands can still have their say!

As with a lot of IT products Sony VAIO's have a lot of value that is 'hidden under the bonnet'. We needed
a way to reveal this to customers in a simple and effective manner. We approached inochi with the basic
idea of creating a self running demonstration. After briefing them on a rough concept they moved forward
quickly. They undertook their own market analysis and this helped us to really clarify and refine the
objectives. During the design and development stages they involved us fully. inochi's professionalism
was exceptional and it was a pleasure working with the team. In the end the finished product couldn't
have been better. It not achieved our initial goal but helped add to the overall brand value. Excellent
work inochi – thankyou.

Pivotal Constructions have worked closely with inochi in successfully completing projects of varying sizes
and requirements. With inochi's architectural vision and Pivotal Construction's building experience the two
companies make an elite team. inochi's fresh approach and quality staff makes 'day to day' relations a
pleasure. inochi innovative designs are second to none.

We have known kristie paul for two years and have found her to be most professional in her work.
She is a very capable person and has always been very honest and pleasant to deal with. She has
been responsible for designing the interior of our new home, which is a substantial modern and extremely
expensive home.The brief was extensive and inochi achieved an outstanding result in designing the interior
of our home. It is always a pleasure to deal with a professional who acts like a professional and I would
recommend her to anyone who deals with her.

Our job was not without challenges - a family of five into a smallish space - all done is Sydney while we
were living in New York. inochi's great skill in the ability to deliver solutions that are innovative yet practical,
and at the same time reflect the characters of the owners rather than the designer or the current fads.
inochi worked with us to ensure that we have a home that continues to delight us and those who visit.

We just purchased a new apartment which needed a little 'modernising'. I was excited to work with inochi
dueto their energy, they were just as excited as we were, nothing was ever too much trouble which is hard
to come by these days. Their experience with space planning and attention to detail is second to none.
We now love coming home everyday and find it hard to leave each morning. Thank you to kristie and the inochi team for making our dreams really come true.
