I’ve been extremely impressed with the caliber of work that Heather brings to the table. She is responsive, timely, and isn’t afraid to think outside of the box. We’ve leveraged her skills in several of our projects this year, including web page design, ad creation, and social media graphics. We plan on continuing to work with her as we move into 2014.

- Charles Refshauge

Heather is a very talented graphic designer and more. She has the ability to quickly pick up and understand anything that is thrown at her. She was always willing to help out with any project that you brought to her. She is a real team player that can working independently or on her own. She was constantly tasked with deadlines and met them. I highly recommend Heather to anyone.

- Pete Dandrea – IT Manager

Very good work. High attention to detail. Excellent at conceptualizing mockups of websites which are functionally easy to execute but still very aesthetically pleasing. Also created the best presentations for clients I’ve ever seen.
