Dawn has been my graphic design artist, photographer and web site designer/ administrator for almost 15 years. She is so bright and creative. All I have to do is give her a need and she is able to quickly find the best solution. I appreciate her attention to detail and commitment to getting things right. She is awesome about laying out the pros and cons of different strategies— always leaving the final decision to me. An avid researcher, she is not afraid to dig in and learn about things which may not be immediately in her toolbox. An exceptional listener, she asks great questions to identify what is most important and where there is flexibility. When people ask me to describe her I would say patient, persistent, responsive, dedicated, loyal, hard working, diligent, detail oriented, fearless and innovative. She is a valued business partner who goes above beyond to meet her commitments. The result is exceptional work that gets results and builds joyful business relationships in the process. Gale Mote, Trainer and Organizational Development Consultant

I love working with Dawn! Mary Gehris, former Development Director, Four Oaks; current Sales & Sponsorship Manager, U.S. Cellular Center, Paramount Theatre, Cedar Rapids Ice Arena and McGrath Amphitheatre


Dawn provides incredibly precise graphic design for newsletters, brochures and larger publications. I had the pleasure of working with her on a public service project in 08; she was extremely conscientious and also willing to stretch her skills into website layout. Dawn’s accuracy creates clean, press-ready layouts, which save clients time and money and result in quality printed pieces. Ruth Paarmann, Freelance Writer, Paarlance Creative Writing


I had the privilege to work with Dawn both as a colleague and a client. In both instances, Dawn has impressed me with her thoroughness and accuracy. Dawn and I worked together on multiple custom publishing projects at Ohio Magazine, then later while she prepared advertorials for my current employer, the Greater Columbus Convention & Visitors Bureau. Dawn possesses the unique combination of speed and accuracy. She is able to quickly turn projects around without sacrificing quality. As an editor, I always appreciated her keen attention to detail.
