I managed Kira for four years. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching her blossom as a professional. On a practical level, Kira is exceedingly resourceful. She really shines in selecting and managing creative talent. Here is an example that comes to mind – she was given a small budget for getting creative assets for a book. Hearing my complaints about using stock photography, Kira found a way to bring in a photographer and models, and she worked with the author to get creative direction remotely. I was able to watch some of the photo shoot. It was very professionally conducted. The assets gathered for this project were great. The book cover she designed afterward was a big success. In the bigger picture, I have worked with many designers over the years. Like many of them, Kira has great design skills. The traits that make Kira stand out are as follows:
She anticipates needs of line-of-business owners
She is technically adept and committed to growing her skills (I watched her learn advanced Flash and video production skills, to name a few)
She excels at managing complex projects
And her secret weapon – she performs her work quickly with little supervision needed
A fast moving, organized, and literate designer? After working with Kira, I can tell you that they do exist! She defies many stereotypes, and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with her
– Cindy McCombe | (former) Director of Marketing at TSIA
It was a pleasure to work with Kira from the very beginning of our project. She is very detail-oriented and did everything to manage our expectations well. I also felt she made an extra effort to get a sense of our established branding identity and what we were striving for in a "fresh" look. She delivered above and beyond on our marketing collateral and we wouldn't hesitate to call on her again.

Kira has a great eye for design and branding. She took my raw inspiration and came up with a logo for my company that was better than I could imagine. Her communication skills are flawless and the rounds were always delivered in a prompt manner. Edits were quickly made and there was never resistant to my input. We worked together to achieve a great outcome and I look forward with working with her on new projects in the future
