"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. "
