"Hands-down, the best and most agreeable designer/art director I've ever worked with."

"To call Amy an efficient worker is a complete understatement; her ability to pull together gorgeous, functional designs that meet every need is astounding. Amy tackles last-minute projects with the same care and productivity, never letting quality slide and not only meeting expectations but exceeding them by suggesting better layouts, better content and better processes based on her natural eye for design and her years of experience. Every project she touches is made better, and every person she interacts with is made happier. I can't recommend Amy highly enough!"
