Paul Miller CEO/ Owner CozyPhones
Dawn's amazing design and project management skills helped to make our first CozyPhones licensed product a hit! Our goal was to take CozyPhones into licensed product for the first time and we hired Dawn as a creative consultant to help us put together our successful Nickelodeon license pitch and to translate our products into licensed designs and branding including product, graphics and packaging.
Dawn's experience with approvals process, superior design skills, and cheerful attitude, gave confidence to our licensor and accelerated our production timeline, resulting in an extremely successful product launch.
Nick Adams MD JOI LTD UK
"The easiest recommendation I have ever been asked to give. I regularly hire Dawn on a freelance basis to produce everything from pitch boards to precise design specs for factories. We specialise in high quality, bespoke customer incentive schemes, so the variety of product areas Dawn is asked to design includes everything from Plush Toys and Clothing to hard lines products such as Head Phones and Stylus Pens.""Dawn needs little direction, she is precise, imaginative, intuitive, and punctual - which means that she works out to be very cost effective as her work has a high success rate"

I would particularly recommend her excellent, computer graphics skills."A very innovative designer who, in both artwork and product design, knows how to combine originality with commerciality which translates into sales. I would happily work with her again."
Tina Spagnola-EVP FAB Starpoint ( New York )
Dawn is extremely creative. Artistically thinks outside the box on any given project which adds a unique and valuable perspective to her design elements. Dawn is terrific at pulling together trends as well as being able to interpret those trends for a specific customer and or targeted age segmentation.
Dawn is energetic, enthusiastic, and a great team player. She is adept at moving from one project to another easily. Dawn would be a great asset to have on your team!"
Kevin Salisbury-Owner Driving With Kids ( UK )
"Wow - I can't believe how lucky I am to have found Dawn. She did a truly brilliant design for me that was way better than I had hoped for. Dawn listened to my needs and came up with an image that was perfect, although she gave me the option for minor revisions I didn't need any as the design was simply awesome. I would not hesitate to recommend Dawn to anyone (except that I would like to keep her just to work for me!!). Brilliant designer - highly recommended!"
Cory Waisner - Executive VP at Global Design Concepts Inc.( New York )
Dawn was a very valuable asset to our design team. We worked together for many years and might I add, as Dawn had first come to us after working/designing in Europe, she brought an extra flair to her creative designs thus helping us expand not only our US based business but overseas business as well. Her desire to create and expand after projects were given out not only by our head of design but also special projects handed out by our licensors made her invaluable. She performed great under pressure and all her presentations were top notch. We were sorry to see her go but after many years of working at our firm she wanted to expand her expertise and also learn new and different aspects besides our bag business so we didn't want to hold her back. She would be a great asset to any company that would welcome her, whether for childrens or adult designing! She worked well with the team and also added a lot to the newness we tried to show each season."
Jeffrey Fisher - VP Licensing and Strategic Marketing, Eny ( California )
"Dawn is a highly creative and motivative individual. Her attention to detail is impeccable and her innovative thinking fresh and unique. She is a great team player, works efficiently and meets deadlines as outlined. I would recommend Dawn as a positive addition to any creative project or team."
