The intricacies of designing a book (particularly full color books) are many, and difficult. Jill had no trouble at all with this and provided flawless files. Every detail was perfect, and exactly to the required specs. I’d be happy to recommend Jill for any design project without hesitation. Her professionalism is top notch, skills are with the best, and her creativity is unequaled.”
