“Amanda did an amazing job on my illustrations! She immediately understood what I wanted and has excellent communication skills, which make this process a breeze. Of course her work is just stunning, and it took my slides for my recent keynote address at a conference in Brazil to a new level. I got so many lovely comments on my slides and I am so grateful that I found Amanda. She is exactly who I was looking for!”

“Amanda is a wonderful designer and is a pleasure to work with! She is very good at communicating each step of the design and review process. When she delivers something, she also reminds you of the next steps. This is very helpful as a busy professional these days! I loved Amanda took our ideas and came up with several concepts that fit the colors and branding we discussed. It was also great how we could tell her what we liked from each concept and have her implement those tweaks to create a final design we were pleased with. Thank you, Amanda!“
