Dennis Howe, Principle of Howe creative
"Lillian’s graphic design work is fantastic. Her designs are clean and creative, and she has an eye for detail. She listend well, so she “heard” what kind of image and personality that I wanted the print pieces to portray, and she translated that into exactly what I wanted. She is also timely, great turnaround time, always on deadline. An excellent professional, all around. AND she’s enjoyable to work with. Thank you, Lillian!"
