Having Kate there to guide us through the beginning and end of our project not only made our lives easier but provided us with exactly what we were looking for on of the biggest days of our lives – we cannot thank her enough for that!
You are very creative and provide multiple options which I find very helpful. I really appreciate your attention to detail and trust that you know what you’re doing.
You made things feel easy. You were able to work with my wants/needs even though I wasn’t able to provide a ton of direction. You also show great skills and design diversity in your work being able to show multiple different style options.
Working with Kate is rewarding. She quickly absorbs the theme of what we are creating and always produces impressive results. Oftentimes, choosing between her options is our biggest challenge.
I think you do an excellent job, and I am continuously impressed with your creativity. Being able to rely on you for those ideas is priceless to me, really, and I’ve had a lot of experience with designers over the years!
Kate’s assistance with creating professionally designed materials has enabled us to expand our reach and ability to “touch” clients in more ways that traditional means, such as by phone and email. In our opinion, the value of this exposure would be greatly diminished if not for the well thought out look and feel of our documents.
People love my branding and my business cards, and they like to contact me because they associate getting in touch with the brand we created.
We’re now way more confident that we’re providing a professional and consistent experience for our students.
Kate is by far the most detail orientated person I have ever worked with. Her creativity is second to none. In my experience, finding both of these qualities in the same person is rare.
We loved Kate’s enthusiasm – its always fun to work with someone who enjoys what they do, which makes you excited for the process too.
