Kind Words From Great People

Greg Storey
Happy Cog

"In my experience, Suzie is a very talented designer and I admire her range in ability. I have had the opportunity to work with her on a variety of projects from print to digital. As a fellow designer, I found her to be a great clutch player who can go from designing materials for a company summit to creating a friendly website very quickly. Suzie is very fast at what she does and getting to design each day genuinely makes her a happy person. You give her a direction and it’s done almost before you can blink. With Suzie’s help we were able to create a broad range of quality designs for Happy Cog that have already been a great asset to our marketing program."
