"I've had the opportunity to work with Lisa at SPIN Magazine for many years, and I can say without a doubt that she is an exemplary designer, project manager and seasoned leader. She was able to juggle several time sensitive campaign executions at once and always delivered quality work. She also had a knack for pulling together and managing the best suited freelancers for each and every varied campaign. Lisa was always grace under pressure whose passion and attention to detail made her bar none the best design director I have ever worked with."
Malcolm Campbell Marketing and Media Consultant (SPIN Publisher)
"Lisa is one of the best and brightest in the creative marketing business. She is someone you can throw a difficult project at, and she will tackle it and complete it in short order."
Catherine Davis Managing Editor at Interview Magazine
"Besides the high quality of Lisa's designs, what impressed me most about her work was her resourcefulness. She was able to create whole elaborate campaigns without an elaborate budget. She was a one-woman design firm, not just limited to print design—she would incorporate multiple media platforms into the campaigns she created. And she did it in a way to perfectly suit SPIN's and the client's image. As a colleague, she was truly a pleasure to work with. She made it easy to exchange ideas with and bring projects to completion. I cannot recommend her highly enough."
Jay Adelson Serial Entrepreneur, Advisor, Consultant
"Lisa breaks convention, challenges assumptions, achieves excellence in areas that others are stuck. She's one of those people you meet that immediately gives you a sense of confidence, based on a solid foundation of common sense, that the project is going to be perfect. Her creative talent is obvious, her ability to apply it to a diverse set of directions is unique. I've enjoyed working with her and strongly recommend her...that is, if I don't hire her first."
