There was an extremely tight deadline on the project yet Maura delivered excellent concepts, revised them in a timely manner and delivered a logo I was thrilled with. In addition she designed multiple business cards and a t-shirt design that have been key to the branding efforts of non-profit. I recommend Maura very highly.”
