What clients say

Yvonne produced an end product well above original expectations. She came up with substantive improvements to the content and provided an excellent professional design. Her professionalism led to right questions being asked from the beginning of the process and helped the document to be provided in a quick schedule. Yvonne is an excellent communicator and a lovely person to work with, she also has exceptional skills with planning work ahead and meeting deadlines.

Jyri Jäntti, Consultant, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), São Tomé e Príncipe

Merci beaucoup pour tes efforts dans la finalisation de ce document très important pour nous. Merci beaucoup pour la promptitude et pour la qualité de ton travail. Merci et au plaisir d’avoir une autre occasion de travailler avec toi.

MOKHTAR MOHAMED, Abdoulhakim, Communication Advocacy and Media, Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) Niamey, Niger

We benefitted enormously from Yvonne’s long years of experience and talent in the area of graphic design. She took the time to understand the mandate and role of the office and invested considerable thought, time and creative insight into producing the final product. She has been highly responsive from start to finish and we are very thankful for her dedication as a highly qualified online UNV.

Kiyohiko Hasegawa (Mr.), Human Rights Officer, Office of the Victims’ Rights Advocate (OVRA), United Nations Secretariat, New York

Yvonne designed a high-quality publication, in a very consultative manner, explaining her design choices and giving solid feedback on the design, process in general and even written content. She ‘went the extra mile’ throughout our collaboration, and was always receptive to feedback. I can’t provide a higher recommendation!

David Thomas, Editor, Cross-Cutting Issues, UN Habitat HQ Nairobi

Yvonne designed a compelling compendium for UNICEF/Learning for Peace Programme. The publication presented complex challenges, as it needed to reflect the realities and dignity of children from 14 culturally and geographically diverse fragile and post-conflict contexts, which Yvonne accomplished admirably. She impressed through her diligence, the way she communicated and listened to the editors’s needs and priorities, her effective adherence to UNICEF branding and publishing guidelines, as well as the timely delivery of project milestones and the final product. I am happy to have entrusted this important piece of work to Yvonne’s competent care.

Friedrich Affolter, Manager Education in Emergencies, UNICEF, New York

Yvonne is simply amazing. If you just want a rushed logo, she’s not the right person, but if you want someone that will spend the time to understand your business, your competition, your differentiators and build a brand design around that, look no further.

Brandon Alexander, Iron Ox, CEO, farming industry, San Francisco, CA, USA

Super quality work backed by great professionalism.

Dan Bailey, owner, Amavida Coffee & Tea, b-corp, Florida, USA

It’s a huge pleasure to work with Yvonne. She combines fantastic art work with a thorough knowledge of branding, styling and advertising. Yvonne is as clear in her communication as she is in her designs. She is reliable, super dedicated and above all a great human being and great fun to work with. Highly recommendable.

Max Wohlgemuth Kitslaar, Life is Out There, adventurer and speaker, the Netherlands

Yvonne was a great person to work with. She responded quickly and delivered great work. She helped us improve the quality on rights and community participation, in particular the disadvantaged. We would be willing to collaborate again with her.

Aïssata Ba, Chargée de Communication Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies aux droits de l’homme, Bureau Régional pour l’Afrique de l’Ouest

The branding programme looks magic and I am excited with the results. After 13 years of existence, we deservedly got it.

Timur Biktogirov, Apexmed, senior marketing manager, healthcare industry, the Netherlands

If you’re seeking the highest quality work you can’t find a better provider. Yvonne has previous experience with large companies such as Nike and constantly strives for perfection.

Jim Lampi, SDS, marketing manager, IT industry, Minneapolis, USA

The result is simply impressive, well above our expectations. Yvonne’s design work contributes to a better image of the UN Volunteers in DRC and volunteering in general.

Marc Lalanne, UNDP programme officer, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

The presentation turned out beautifully and she added more than design skills. Yvonne really digs in to understand the project fully and contributes strategically to the project development.

Melissa Higbie, deputy country director, Population Services International (PSI), Tanzania/USA

Your work has had a great influence on us here. It’s helping us in more ways than you know.

Jonathan Chaikin, Abacus Cabinetry, CEO, furniture industry, Colorado, USA

We love the identity. The result is exactly what we were looking for, what we wanted, but didn’t know how to pull it off. We think Yvonne understood us well. The identity has now the energy it needs.

Clara Comaleras, Infancia en Movimiento, partner, professional services, Buenos Aires, Argentina

An exceptional designer, so creative and innovative, Yvonne knows how to effectively collaborate on an idea in order to get the very best results.

Candice Kaminer, Abacus Cabinetry, head designer, furniture industry, Colorado, USA

She is professional, honest, accommodating and very hard working. She always goes above and beyond. Yvonne is the best designer I have ever used.

Lisa Connell, Seaside REP, managing director, entertainment industry, Florida, USA

Yvonne is logical in her approach; her outcomes are exact because she does the preparation piece significantly better than other people I have worked with. She is a top-level designer, I recommend her to anyone who is serious about, and understands the value, of a strong brand. AMAZING YVONNE.

Leigh Sherman, Farrell Mortgage Brokers, marketing manager, financial industry, Australia

Yvonne handled our project with her normal consummate professionalism, along with an added dose of patience.

Marc Hammons, Babel Communications, director, communication consultancy, Taipei, Taiwan

Extremely creative, responsive, and timely. If you are looking for a high end, clean design feel, you will not be disappointed. She is as solid as they come.
