Katie has worked for me several times and has always delivered top notch graphic design, illustration, and page layout work. She’s covered multiple mediums (online, print, and merchandise) and has always delivered the product she promised.

I am a very picky customer, and Katie has patiently worked me me through many (once 53) revisions until the product was perfect.
