I was completely satisfied. He was extremely timely and responsive. I used him to design a logo for my new business. His initial round contained even more samples than he had promised, and he was extremely responsive as I requested edits and narrowed down my choices. His pricing was extremely competitive. I would definitely recommend him.

A savior with a sweet smile. Tanya not only provided the editing I needed but she went above and beyond by providing me with proper formatting and ebook compliance corrections.

Karen is amazing! She encouraged me to think harder about what I was writing, and pushed me to create my best writing. Most importantly, Karen helped my voice shine through in my essays. She was wonderful to work with, and she always got edits back to me quickly. Her comments and suggestions were very intelligent and got me to really think about what message I was conveying in my writing. I wish I could go through the college application process again just to work with Karen a second time!!

I would highly recommend Jessica with your writing project. I found her to be organized, knowledgeable and very skillful at the job. Working with her was a delight. I wrote my memories of 125 pages including photos. Jessica was very instrumental in the organization, editing and physical publishing of the book.

Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!

I hired James and Jerrick to take photographs of my wedding rehearsal dinner, and I’ve been raving to people about them ever since. Throughout the process, they were professional, courteous, and on-the-ball. Most importantly, they photographs were fantastic! James has a great eye for interesting candid shots, and Jerrick’s editing is masterful. I would recommend this due without reservations.

Consummate professional are the first words that come to mind for Jan Eckland, when I reflect. She is creative, articulate, educated, and thorough in all she presents. Fact checking has been one of the hallmarks of her career. You can expect a new and stylish twist to any project in the written form, photographic or video presentation that you assign to Jan. She has an inquisitive nature that will weave it's way into her work that translates flawlessly to the reader or viewer. Her project timing is on point and she will become a valued resource to you as I am sure you will select her repeatedly for additional work. Jan is a quick learner to a new topic, and extremely focused on meeting each and every deadline to your satisfaction. Jan Eckland has my highest recommendation. Please feel free to contact me at any time regarding Jan Eckland's professional abilities.
