CEO, Catalyst Communication
"Lisa is a pleasure to work and was a valuable member of our team in several ways. First, she is a very talented art director who combines sparkling creativity with a polished ability to accept direction and criticism and participate in moving the overall project forward. Lisa understands that creativity is measured in terms of results, and that results come from solid planning and execution. We also found Lisa to be a great team member. She was always careful to be clear about the goal and inclusive in building team support for campaigns."
“Lisa is one of those impossibly talented and creative people who, if I didn't admire so much, I would despise. I have worked with her on numerous projects and she always brings every fiber of her creative self to the table. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is looking for an authentically artistic and creative mind. She is the best of people and a pleasure to work with. Hire her, or your competition will, and then you really will be sorry.”
Founder, Sustainable Building Design
“I hired Lisa to design a logo and business identity for me in 2007. I was very occupied with starting a new business. With admitted vague input from me, Lisa did an excellent job of taking the resources I had to create a distinctive and enduring logo and graphic identity for my business that has translated well from paper to web site. I will continue to work with Lisa and would recommend her services.”
Owner, Growth Cycle
“I highly recommend Lisa for all aspects of creative work, from marketing concepts to production work, and everything in between.”
Sales, Spectrographics, Inc.
“I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Lisa for several years now, and have always appreciated her attention to detail and professionalism. The depth of her creative work can only be explained by the fact that she listens to her clients, and has a well-rounded understanding of production methodologies. In the end, the result is well thought out projects start to finish.”
CEO, Bikes Belong
“Lisa's work is clean, crisp, and right on the money. She picks up concepts quickly, uses colors well, and has good eye for detail. If you want great work at a fair price, call Lisa.”
Biologist, National Park Service
“Lisa McKinney worked with our National Park Service Inventory & Monitoring program under contract to produce graphic designs for natural resource information briefs, to complete final information briefs with content to be served on the web, and to provide instruction in use of Adobe Creative Suite software to me. These briefs included a range of topics, such as birds, bats, wetlands, lakes, and forests, and needed to communicate complex information in a concise, compelling format. Lisa excels in communicating and working well with others, and she is a talented graphic designer. Her final products were inviting to read, and her designs did a great job of balancing text with graphics. Other National Park Service staff outside of our program who have read these briefs have been very complimentary about their design and content. Lisa was an excellent teacher as well, and her instruction in InDesign enabled me to apply her templates for development of additional resource briefs for our program. Lisa also volunteered with our program to do the graphic design of a poster we presented at a conference, and did the cover design for the conference program. Both of these were very professionally done, and incorporated creative designs that fit well with the theme of the conference. I highly recommend Lisa for graphic design work -- she is personable, very knowledgeable about the techniques and software tools needed, and does creative, high-quality work.”
