Maria, I wanted to say thank you. Everything you have created for Beautiful Home & Life is stunning -absolutely gorgeous in fact. I really can’t thank you enough. You continuously went above and beyond throughout the entire design process. From the beginning I had a vision, which I often wavered from and questioned by needs, yet throughout the process you reigned me back in and kept me focused on my original dream for the brand. Your creative style and keen eye for detail and design brought my dream to life and made it even better than I ever thought possible! Everything you created, The Style Guide, Brand Elements Business Cards, Logo, Stamp, Sub-marks – everything you did is beautiful – it perfectly matches our brand Beautiful Home & Life. I have, and will continue to recommend your services. I found your services high-end, yet affordable enough for a start-up business like mine –I feel you delivered a brand that a large company would be thrilled to call their own. I will definitely use your services again in the future. Thanks again for helping Beautiful Home & Life establish ourselves in a challenging market, standing above and beyond our competitors.

If you take your branding seriously, Maria is your girl. I’ve never met someone as talented and skilled as her. As soon as I saw Maria’s work, I knew I wanted to work with her. I was not happy with my logo at the time and had made the mistake of working with someone whose work I was unfamiliar with. Big mistake. I’ve been through a few logos and no one had ever done a Style guide for me. I’m amazed at what a necessary tool this is for consistent branding across your media. She got to know me, my personality and style and designed a logo I absolutely love. The patterns and color scheme are uniquely me. Thank you Maria, I get so many compliments on my logo, letterhead, freebie and business cards. It’s been such a pleasure working you and look forward to our next project together.

I chose Maria to help me build the look of my brand and website because her design style really suited my new business and her approach to doing business really aligned with mine. Maria was very intuitive to my needs; I am not very IT savvy and she always explained everything to me patiently and in language I could understand. Maria delivered my finished Website really efficiently and early! She kept an open flow of information and asked lots of questions to make sure we got it absolutely right! I am delighted with the beautiful look of my new Website and how it meets the needs of my new business and my clients.It will be user friendly and appealing to my target market. Maria has opened up a new realm of possibilities for my business and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone needing a beautiful functional Website, she is a pleasure to work with.

Maria created an absolute sophisticated brand for my relationship coaching for successful women. I would have never imagined that from a pinterest board she could create something which matches my ideal clients and me in such a way. This is the imaginary genius of Maria. She understood my clients even better than I. The whole package I received from Maria smartly blends into my website and makes it even more outstanding. Maria was always on time and fast with any changes. Maria is cheerful and driven and gives her clients her very very best, to make YOU standing out.

I am in love with my brand!! I have been asking God and the Angels for someone to help me for the past year and I knew it was Maria when I saw her ad on Facebook. Maria captured my true spirit and the essence of my brand. I am so pleased to see all of my publicity so beautifully coordinated. From my website details, to my Facebook page covers, my pull-up banner, business cards, advertisements even my power point presentations and document hand-outs. It all looks very sharp and professional ! People are impressed with the look of my brand and so am I. It looks and feels very professional, elegant and classy. I highly recommend Maria. She is very professional and fun to work with. Maria is a true artist when it comes to branding !

Maria published my website recently and I am thrilled with the result. Maria was very professional to work with. I found the whole process from the design brief till publishing very seamless and not at all stressful, which I was actually expecting based on past experiences with web designers. Maria’s design eye and consistent branding is commendable. Thank you for your dedication with my project, Maria.

Your Relationship Marketing Mentor

Highly recommend Maria for all your branding and graphic needs. I was very nervous at first to get some branding done because I didn’t really know how to express what I wanted. How could I get a great outcome when I couldn’t articulate my vision. I simply did the ‘Share the story’ online quiz and it gave me some wonderful insights. It was a fabulous starting point for me to start my Pinterest mood board and reach out to Maria for our first chat. Maria is so friendly and perceptive; she made me feel at ease immediately. After just one call (which felt like I was catching up with an old friend), she had already drawn out of me what mattered most about my new brand and its vibe. Her excitement was contagious. When I got the logo options, it was so hard to pick just one as I fell in love with all of them… Such a nice problem to have when initially I thought I wouldn’t even like the end product at all. Maria’s talent, skill, generosity and passion make her a dream brand designer to work with, even if you have a limited budget. I can’t wait to share my new brand with the world!

Working with Maria on my new logo has been amazing. I felt she really took the time to understood me and my business. She has been so easy to work with, so efficient and kept me update throughout the whole process. The quality of her work is not only professional but really beautiful.  The logo she designed for me is perfect. I think it reflects me and my business perfectly.  

Kate Riordan

Business Consulting

Maria helped to create some fabulous branding for my new business that I am proud to share. When I came to Maria I didn’t have a clear idea of what I needed, just a vague description of what I thought I was looking for – I was worried that I couldn’t convey the way I wanted the branding to feel. When I received the branding workbook, the questions and ideas that were asked, helped me to step through easily and define not only what I desired in the logo & letterhead, but what I wanted to create in my whole business. Maria was such a pleasure to collaborate with, promptly responding to any queries and on time with the project. It was a delightful process in preparing the visuals of evoxly with the added bonus of gaining clarity for future vision.

Maria’s initial questionnaire really got me thinking about the “feel” for my new branding, and she intuitively tuned in to what would work for me. The colour palette, the design of my stamp, the unique logo, subtle additions which capture the diverse nature of my work….fantastic!! It was such fun negotiating the finer details, drawing on her vast skill set until we were both happy with the final outcome. She is very professional, dedicated to presenting the best for her customer’s business, and satisfaction. Highly recommended.

I have admired Maria’s work for awhile and was thrilled when the opportunity arose for her to do some work for me. Her design skills are exceptional. She has a strong customer focus and is one of the few graphic designers I’ve worked with who has super prompt turnaround which was very appreciated. Clients provided very positive feedback about the booklet Maria did for me. I highly recommend her to anyone!

Linda Chaousis

Maria did the design for my free eBook opt in. She did a fantastic job – she took my branding and created a beautiful cover and design for the book. The feedback I have had on my eBook and the ad in which it features has been terrific. Maria is positive, clear and responsive in how she operates and I would recommend her to anyone looking for quality, reliable design support.

Louise Taylor

Maria is an absolute delight to work with – huge talent, boundless enthusiasm and complete reliability. That combination in itself is invaluable, but when you add in her familiarity with so many of the online platforms that I use in my business, she becomes absolutely priceless and has collaborated with me to successfully bring so many of my diverse projects to life.  I will continue to work with her in the years to come and heartily recommend that you do too!

Next Chapter Business Mentor | Speaker

I came to Maria with an idea to host a telesummit for International Women’s Day and with only 6 weeks to spare! This was a very tight timeframe, but somehow Maria worked her magic! I was recommended her services as she had successfully assisted with a summit previously and knew how to put it all together. I never realised how many pieces there were to something like this and Maria broke it down very easily for me. I had the idea and Maria made it happen. She was professional, friendly and kept me accountable as we navigated the process together. I was blown away by her design for the summit registration pages and I’ve had so many compliments on it since. She was patient with me as I was new to the whole process and gave me much needed advice and tips when she handed it over. She was also tireless with her dedication in getting it working to the deadline and the summit was a great success! Thank you Maria and look forward to working with you again.
