Ivy is tremendously talented in all aspects of creative work. She possesses that truly unique combination of copywriting, design, concept development and good sense. It’s all too common to find someone who can write, but not design; who can design, but not conceive the creative message behind it, etc. She has the ability to delve into the underlying need/message/request/goal of a creative campaign and bring it to life, perfectly merging form and function in concepts, design and messaging that consistently exceed every expectation.

Ivy has helped me with several projects and even acted as my marketing development manager. She has a wealth of knowledge who can offer assistance in all aspects of brand management including everything from the branding concept stage to copywriting, graphic design and website building/management. Ivy is incredibly knowledgeable about trends and always seeks opportunities for continued education. Her decision making process is based on her vast knowledge of consumers, rather than gut instinct, so she is always happy to discuss the reasons for her design to the smallest detail and share her deep understanding of the industry. Her professionalism is unparalleled.

Ivy is essential to the success of my business and always makes herself available for projects. She provides realistic deadlines and fulfills her commitments on time.
