What Others Have To Say About Me

“I had the pleasure of working with Arlene and her team on brand awareness, marketing improvements, and web site overhaul as we were celebrating our 100th Year Anniversary as a business. Arlene took the time to meet with a number of employees and even walked the plant floor in order to get a better understanding of the business and what was required to deliver on our requirements. The changes she helped us put in play are still relevant 5 years later! I would strongly encourage any business looking for a fresh start or revamp of their brand and/or website to contact Arlene.”
– Kevin Stevick, President and CEO of Niagara LaSalle Corporation

“Arlene created branding for a new company we started. She worked very quickly, and we were very please with the results. I would highly recommend her.”
– Scott Katz, President of Midland Retail


”Our 501c3 nonprofit, Partnership for Innovation in Education (PIE) hired Arlene to create our website from scratch! We needed to create a high impact design, offering a content template that was engaging and easy to use. Arlene created a GREAT website design for us at our budgeted cost. She provided "hands-on" strategic direction that start ups and nonprofits fully appreciate. Moreover, she helped cut costs by recommending options we never considered. In general, she was a great translator of web design, brand engagement, and she provided creative direction to an organization new to social media and electronic marketing. She continues to be an asset to our organization. Finally, our website has received national praise for its utility and reader engagement.”
– Mary Shlueter, CEO of Partnership for Innovation in Education


“Arlene is a great designer. I've worked with her on several projects over the years. She always delivers high quality work, on time, and on budget. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”
– Brian Vass, Director of Marketing of Sant Corporation

– Lisa Davis Roberts, Director of Social Venture Partners Cincinnati


“Arlene has been an absolute pleasure to work with this past year. From day one she showed her enthusiasm for the work she does. Never settling for anything but the very best, Arlene's attention to detail is what sets her apart from the rest. Her ability to "get into the heads" of her clients allows her to fully achieve the very best outcome possible and has allowed me to trust that any project given to Arlene will surpass expectations!”
– Heather Kessler


“I have worked with Arlene on several projects. I have found her to be bright, talented, intuitive, and very creative. She is also very mindful of budget issues and deadlines. On top of all that, she is a pleasure to work with.”
– Lyn Kummer, Senior Manager Strategic Accounts of IntelliQ Health


“Arlene was hired to develop new brand for Northern Cincinnati CVB. She is very creative, knowlegable and understands her customers needs and direction. Arlene helped our CVB to win several tourism destination marketing awards and become a leader in the industry! I highly recommend her!”
– Jeff Blom, Director of Marketing of Northern Cincinnati Convention of Visitors Bureau

“I really enjoyed working with Arlene. She is smart, articulate and is quick to identify business needs and opportunities. Arlene combines strong design skills with a keen sense of how to turn good design and branding into tangible business results. I hope to work with Arlene again!”
– Carolyn Taylor

“I have used Arlene on several projects and can highly recommend her for her ability to do what is best for the client. What makes Arlene stand out as a graphic designer/creative director is that she understands "brand" . . .something that is lacking in many graphic designers. She works closely with us to make sure the client's design reflects the message of the brand. Arlene delivers on time.”
– Kate Jacobs, President of Black Skirt Media
