“Shannon is a pleasure to work with, consummately professional and invariably providing great ideas and creative vision. She really digs in to understand not just a project's requirements, but also the reasons behind the requirements, in order to provide the best possible design. She doesn't miss deadlines, and she always provides an array of design options that will meet the project's needs. Here's the bottom line: when you involve Shannon in a project, you're going to get great work, great attitude, great results, and a great designer.”

“Shannon is one of the best graphic designers I have worked with... her ideas are out of the box, creative and nail the message. She understands branding and how to incorporate it into all levels of advertising and product. She understands the audience; she understands how to present an idea. Shannon was one of the major players in developing the brand for my organization and the results were above and beyond expectations. I would hire her again with complete confidence of a job well done.”

“When Shannon left her full-time gig to give it a go as an independent creative contractor, I wasn't only confident that she would succeed in her new endeavor, I was also incredibly happy to have the opportunity to collaborate with her again. After working together many years ago at a shop in Pittsburgh, we had grown to respect each other personally and professionally throughout the nine years of our friendship. Her ability to again and again prove her creativity, along with her very thorough thought process to make sure everything is strategically grounded, has allowed me to put my full faith in Shannon's capabilities and given me the utmost confidence when assigning projects to her. Shannon has been a true creative resource for Loaded Creative. I hope our partnership and friendship will continue to grow with each and every passing year.”

“This is one of those rare recommendations that comes easily and without hesitation. Shannon is one of the most inventive and progressive-minded creative people I have known. But what makes her such an incredible professional is her incredible attitude, her willingness to collaborate and her uncanny sense of excitement about virtually any project and client. And, while she would have every reason to let her talents go to her head, she keeps her ego well in check. She's a delight to work with and I would welcome any opportunity to work with her again.”
