"I knew I loved Molly's style when I hired her to take on a couple of branding and logo projects for me, but the skill, nuanced creativity, and professionalism she exhibited throughout the process totally exceeded my already high expectations. Molly is an excellent communicator; she is welcoming and easy to talk to about even the fuzziest ideas. The process of working with her not only gave me wonderful visual elements for my brands, but also helped me see what it is I do with more clarity. If you want to work with a designer who will truly see and hear you and help others do the same, I recommend Molly without hesitation."

Simply put, she exceeded expectations on every front. We've received innumerable compliments from our members and event attendees on the renewed, professional look-and-feel of our branding in both print and digital, all thanks to Molly's hard work and vision. She has been a major asset for our organization and I am particularly impressed with her quick response time, consistent ability to meet deadlines, and frequent creative suggestions for additional ways to make our brand shine.
