"I had the pleasure of managing Brook for nearly 4 years. During that time, she and I had a wonderful working relationship. She is very organized, dependable and can multitask very well.
I've never worked with a more talented designer. Brook's designs always exceeded everyone's expectations. When a new project or task was given to Brook, she effortlessly presented new and fresh ideas for the assignment.
Her knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite and her creativity are unmatched. Brook is very professional and understands branding, typography and color theory, but most importantly, she enjoys design, and it shows. She has a true passion for her craft and can handle digital design, print design, large format and any other challenges presented to her.
I hope to work with Brook again in the future and would recommend her for any design position."
Gryphon House, Inc.
"During my time as Brook’s coworker I had the pleasure of working closely with her on a number of high-profile projects from start to finish. When working with Brook on a project I always knew I could count on her to approach each task with the same energy, passion, and care for detail regardless if it was an entire book or a single marketing email. She continually brought a fresh design perspective to the table that I had never considered and revitalized our company’s titles (old and new alike) and marketing campaigns.
From single-handedly conceptualizing and executing brand new customer catalogs and trade show booths, to learning new B2B and B2C marketing software to lead the design of email campaigns, re-branding curriculums, and designing eye-catching new titles, Brook is truly a wonder woman. I have the utmost respect for Brook’s abilities as a designer and would trust her with any and all of my design needs—I recommend her 1000%."

"In my role as VP of Creative Development, at Universal Companies Inc, I had the opportunity to work with Brook from July 2009 until April 2016. During this time, Brook developed skills that today she excels at
• Attention to detail—I could always count on Brook to find the tiniest of inconsistencies and depended on her to look at much of the department’s work.
• Ability to handle multiple projects with tight deadlines, i.e., organization and time management
Most of the projects assigned to Brook required working on as many as 20 projects at a time of varying size and scope.
In addition to these skills, Brook is highly creative and her design is superb. She consistently turned out creative ideas for many types of design projects including direct mail catalogs, packaging, magazine ads, web ads, email marketing, and trade show collateral."
VP Creative Development
"It was my pleasure to work with Brook for more than seven years, during which time I developed great admiration and respect for her work. Our in-house agency environment is fast-paced, with multiple projects and tight deadlines. Brook’s excellent organizational skills made her adept at managing jobs and moving them through the creative process efficiently.
She was also vital to the production of our annual 480+ page print catalog—one of the most comprehensive and respected resources in the spa industry. Brook utilized Excel spreadsheets to create custom designed spreads that seamlessly blended thousands of products and hundreds of brands into one cohesive publication. The production process required her to have a sense of urgency to stay on schedule, and she always knew exactly what had been completed and what remained to be done.
Brook’s creativity and skills made her an essential part of our team. I highly recommend her as a graphic designer and a valuable asset for any creative project or firm."
