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.
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.
Kate is very responsive, creative and focused on meeting our deadlines. I do not have the capability to design my documents in-house, so I did not hesitate to outsource this work.
When I partner with Kate on a project, I know that my expectations will be exceeded. She delivers creative and functional designs– on time and on budget. Her attention to detail and follow through are exceptional.
For us it was difficult to translate our thoughts into a marketing message and Kate was invaluable in this process. She listened carefully to what we wanted to project and quickly turned it into reality.
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.
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!
Working with you was AMAZING! You helped me cobble together an incoherent pile of ideas into a cohesive, gorgeous brand identity that works across all my platforms. The hardest part was deciding on a design, since they were all so gorgeous. No lie. That was the toughest thing.
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.
