One of the most competent graphic designers I have had the pleasure to work with, Alison is a true professional. I donât get the opportunity to work with someone of her caliber as frequently as I would like. She likes to learn new things and that is obvious by how she engages you when she speaks to you. The setup of her files shows she is conscientious about what it is she is doing and she brings to the table a wealth of understanding on how to brand a company and how to best utilize said brand. Alison is fluent in Adobe Creative Cloud and I have done very complex work with her, as well as many press checks over the years and a designer that understands color is a rare bird indeed. My favorite thing about Alison is not the quality of her design or understanding of color theory nor how fluent she is in the software, my favorite thing about her is that she is an excellent human, fun, optimistic and vivacious, always ready for the next challenge and ready to bring the patented AJ effervescence to the project that few others can seem to muster.

Alison is incredibly gifted in her craft, brings joy to the workplace, and proactively brings new ideas to the table. She is the kind of person who not only does amazing work, but is constantly improving what she is involved in - this is a rare quality! With Alison, you will not only have a team member who will fulfill a role, but someone who will improve that role, and bring innovation to everything she is involved with.

I met my friend Alison when I began my yoga journey, several years ago and we attended yoga teacher training together last summer. Alison embraces teamwork and collaborating on new ideas. She is trustworthy, energetic and charismatic. Her creativity, positivity, punctuality are just a few of the qualities I admire most.
