The great thing for me about working with Lena, is that I can move fast, barely explain what I need and at the same time know in my heart that she will make it all okay. Over and over again she has created press-ready files that have turned into beautiful products that my clients rave about. Lena helps in keeping me somewhat sane in the crazy world of printing.

Lena is a highly-talented graphic designer and artist. The work she has done for me has been very creative  and yet professional. She understands my likes and dislikes when she designs marketing materials for me and  her understanding of technical issues, software programs, and cross-platform of operating systems is a real asset.  She’s also fun to work with, you can’t beat that combination!
