"Holly was an absolute joy to work with. Not only was the quality of her work outstanding, she worked tirelessly and quickly to meet a rush deadline. Her design skills are very impressive, as is her ability to think outside the box and give us several concepts we hadn't contemplated. We will absolutely use Holly again!"

− Doug Appelton, CEO SNYPR

"Holly is an amazing graphic designer. I worked with her to design a new logo for my business that was going through some changes. It was over 7 months ago and I still get excited every time I look at my logo. She then designed my new labels and I have gotten so many compliments on them. In addition to her creative abilities she is very personable and a joy to work with. She keeps you informed of the process and always comes in on time. I recommend her highly, you will not be disappointed."

− Shelley Birnbaum, Owner Renew Botanicals

"I can't be happier with the logo Holly designed for my interior design business, Paloma Home Studio. Her approach to design is fresh, current and has a wonderful organic quality. She sent me several mock-ups for my logo and it was so hard to decide since they were all spectacular! I'm so pleased, she captured exactly the look and feel of my design style. She also designed my business card and delivered in less than a week! I would definitely recommend and refer Holly for all business design and advertising. I'm looking forward to working with her in the future as my business grows! "

− Marcia Rowley, Owner Paloma Interior Design

"When beginning the branding process for our photography business, Eastport Photography, we looked at a number of graphic designers and Holly's portfolio stood out among all the rest. She was easily able to grasp the look we wanted to convey. She was also very responsive and easy to work with, despite being on the west coast while we were on the east coast."

− Jessica Hughes, Owner Eastport Photography

"Holly is a rare find!! She is SOOOO smart, creative and works harder than she needs to. She truly cares about her clients and puts her heart into her work!!! And she is incredibly talented!!!"

− Gina Hendrix, Owner Exclusive Introductions

"Just returned from a business trip in SF. There was a package on my door step when I arrived home today. I opened it and it contained the most AMAZING business cards you can imagine. I am so glad I listened to Holly's suggestions because they totally created the "brand" I was looking for. She made a suggestion that I was not sure about, but in trusting her creative intuition I went with it. I cannot thank her enough for her amazing creative input. My cards rock!"

− Christina Criscione, Chief Administrator CTC Relations

"Holly is absolutely incredible. She designed my logo for my company and worked diligently until we had it exactly where we wanted it. She always followed up to let us know how it was coming and we when could expect everything. She is very professional and responsive. Holly thinks creatively and helps guide you in the direction you should be going, while listening to your input at the same time. I highly recommend this professional to anyone and can't wait to work with her again!"

− Ashley Foreman, Co-founder Rusty Bear Media

"Holly's bespoke designs exceed expectations. She proves exceptional in many design & business areas. Mostly, we relied on her independent, interpretative skill & unique personal style: Send Holly a few adjectives, color likes, & "feel" and she listens - and listens well - and applies a graphic affluence that looks rich - logos that spark with swank, business cards that gloss importance, cards that make print come as alive as online media. More, she is the fusion of detail & expanse - from logos, to branding, to overall business plans, brick & mortar store design & business launch & execution - she captures it all, and makes a grand effort look easy. She has made The Annapolis Sweet Shoppe what it is today - a destination venue that people want to see & talk about!"

− Susan Tyndall, CEO The Annapolis Sweet Shoppe

"I've known Holly since 2000. She's an extremely dedicated and creative individual, competent designer and maintains an excellent rapport with clients. I highly recommend Holly for any creative project as she'd be a valuable asset for any organization."

− Leslie Dreschler, Owner PPC Buyers

"Holly exceed my expectations in every way possible. She was able to take a simple email explanation of what I needed and turned that into a graphical masterpiece. I highly recommend Holly for any design work."

− Leigh Hunt, CEO FreeMo
