My artist for our children's books brought Rick Torres on board back in 2007. I give our artists and graphic illustrators free hand in any/all their work. I have always been more than impressed with RT's work. "Pendleton the Penguin & His Magical Friends" will be released GLOBALLY this year and we've already rec'd rave reviews about the content of the characters. High marks for Mr. Torres across the board.

I have worked with Patrick for over 8 years, for clients including Scholastic and Highlights for Children. He is an especially versatile illustrator whose clever depictions of kids and animals are always spot on for the assignment (often very tricky assignments, as with Hidden Pictures scenes) and usually add thoughtful and humorous touches to our original briefs. Some of his individual illustrations (my favorites include his anthropomorphized insects and fish) have inspired us to create actual series based on the characters, such as the Antics series of inside-back-cover puzzles for Highlights Let's Play Hidden Pictures. Always on time (and timeless the Scholastic skills book series for which Patrick illustrated the whimsical covers in 2007 are still top sellers at B&N.) Always in the format I need and always willing to make last minute adjustments or send me versions or elements when needed. Patrick is one of my favorite "go to" illustrators for a variety of clients and types of projects. Sharon Streger Sequel Creative http://www.sequelcreative.com/
I am a huge fan of excellent customer service and Cara surpassed my expectations by far! From the beginning of the process Cara was extremely helpful and knowledgable about her craft. She was very thorough and provided an array of options while also giving her expert opinion. Not only was her service AMAZING, but the finished product was absolutely perfect! My boyfriend wanted a business logo designed, so I shopped around for him. I sent Cara a picture and within a day or so she had preview ready. My boyfriend immediately stopped looking for artists for his design because Cara was just that great! It doesn't end there...we wanted the logo put on a t-shirt and the company we used gave us a hard time. Cara took the initiative to contact the tshirt company personally and helped us solve our issue. Thank you, Cara. We truly appreciate your service. Brittany and Davonte'
Seitu did great work! Will love to hire him again.

Do you need a designer who has a unique aptitude for reading, understanding and interpreting people's needs? Several years of customer service, international travel, and volunteer work has given me an advantage over other graphic designers who are lacking important interpersonal skills. My creative versatility offers the ability to present a broad range of solutions when producing graphic design work. Priding myself on being a very organized and ambitious self-starter, I thoroughly research a topic before beginning the first sketches of any design. Finding it comforting and reassuring for my clients, I include them every step of the way. Communication is the key to perfecting the design. Professional illustration, logo, web, presentation, and brochure design, are just the beginning of my range of graphic design services. An expert with Adobe CC, Keynote/Power Point, photography and image manipulation, I can offer a unique perspective on design by incorporating my own illustrative touches. With more than 5 years of experience operating a successful design business as well as working full-time as an in-house graphic designer for an international company. I have the knowledge and creativity you need to get the job done.
