Overall,we were very happy with the design details of our invitations, programs, and signage. We never imagined the design you printed and I love that you took our conversations and made it into something we both loved!
I really liked that some times we had ideas that you thought would not work the way we wanted it to, so you would mock it up for us so we could see. I learned to trust your opinions!
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.
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.
We’re now way more confident that we’re providing a professional and consistent experience for our students.
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.
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 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.
We were pleased with Kate’s flexibility in our timeline and additional requests throughout the project, as well as her collaboration with our printer. Overall, we were very satisfied with Kate’s professionalism and open communication, and look forward to working with her again.
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.
