Misty worked on a logo project for my PCOS awareness program and surpassed my expectations. She has an excellent ability to grasp the idea of what you want and transfer it into a design. She gave me the wow factor on the very first round and that is something you don't find very often. Her professionalism and great personality are the additional assets. When I think of design, Misty Marquis is what comes to mind and no one else.

I had the pleasure of working with Misty on a daily basis at the Impact Partnership. From proofreading and editing her materials, I can say that not only is she a talented graphic designer, but she is also incredibly patient and always willing to accept client feedback to perfect her work. Misty embraces that the client comes first and will work tirelessly to make sure they are happy and satisfied with revisions. This truly sets her apart and makes her an exceptional team player.

I really enjoyed working with Misty on a daily basis doing graphic design at the Impact Partnership. Misty has a great work ethic and her enthusiasm for design motivates others to work hard as well. She is so creative and knowledgable of the creative software. She always made herself available to bounce ideas off of and will go out of her way to help. It was a privilege to work with Misty and I hope to have the chance to work with her again.
