Raquel was recently enlisted to assist our team with redesign and reformatting for a few EBMS project deliverables. After consecutive meetings and consultation with the team, Raquel presented an entire design library to our team for utilization, which included several design and format options that could be used when preparing any brief. Our client loved the final output and agreed that the new format improved readability and more clearly conveyed the overall status for our projects. Raquel is obviously extremely talented in her craft, but is also very responsive and has the most pleasant demeanor, which makes her terribly easy to work with. We appreciate the time and support she devoted towards helping us to enhance our deliverables and provide top-notch support to our client!

She is very organized in her thoughts and great in meeting deadlines  – and the outcome is always a good looking design that perfectly meets the functionality.

Leif Picoult, Senior Proposal Editor

Raquel is an extremely talented graphic designer with the skills to capture the essence of any message perfectly through imagery, infographics, and impactful fonts and layouts. She effectively took CVP's government proposals to the next level, learned new technical skills to completely revamp our website, and reinforced cohesive, effective branding by creating easy-to-use templates for any new collateral development. She is not only a strong team player, but she is dedicated to creating the strongest graphics possible, working extra hours in the evenings and on weekends to get the job done, and get it done with stellar results. I HIGHLY recommend Raquel for any graphic design role.
