Though I love Cailyn's design work, I almost always recommend her based on her well-rounded knowledge of everything else. Don't misunderstand: she is an amazing designer! I know I'm not going to be the only one to say this, but working with Cailyn is like working with a friend who gets all of your strange pop culture references.
Working with Cailyn is easy. Our stack of ideas goes home with her, and she returns with a handful of options for us. As a nonprofit, it's nice that she takes time out of her schedule to show us a few simple things we can do to carry our designs with us throughout our performing season without increasing our design budget. One of the best parts of working with Cailyn is being able to bring her in front of our Board of Directors. She is a clear expert, but has a wonderful talent for making everyone feel like an artist and participant. We simply love having her around.
Cailyn is the kind of person you would want to hang out with after work. She agrees, readily, to execute everything, but is not afraid to tell you when something isn't working. Her emails make us laugh, and we come out of every meeting with her feeling like we've made really great decisions.
Cailyn, we can not imagine working with anyone else. You've been so easy to deal with, and you were honest when you thought our ideas weren't practical. Honesty goes a long way with me when we're trying to get the most out of a pretty tight budget. I'm so glad we were referred to you. Thanks, again!
We've had such a great response to everything Cailyn did for us. We're already talking about future projects for her! We had a little hiccup when our previous designer terminated our contract, and Cailyn did everything she could to help us stick to our (way too short!) timeline. She was available to chat whenever we had a question, and even responded to our late-night emails when she certainly didn't have to. Love, love, love her.
Working with Cailyn is always wonderful. I trust her to give me exactly what I ask for while also providing a lot of feedback about how she approaches everything. When I come to her with an idea, she makes it better. Her work is good, but her attitude is great. On a more personal note, she even shot my wedding! She and her husband work side by side in a great way, and really made us feel like we could enjoy our wedding day without worrying about ticking boxes for all the photos. We're so proud to hang her work on our walls at home, and so glad we've gotten to see her creativity across multiple art forms.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the work you've done over the past few weeks. Everyone in the office has had wonderful things to say about you, and that's not something we run into a lot. I really felt like you heard us, and you walked us through some really great options. We're excited for the next step, and I wanted to let you know we passed your name on to a few people. Thanks again for having a great sense of humor, really listening to us, and giving us some great resources!
I've worked with Cailyn on a number of projects over the years, and it gets easier every time. She's a great resource because she understands a lot of the demands I face as a small business owner, and really gives great input about future projects. She's always thinking about how I might be able to use something down the road, and isn't afraid to give me advice if something doesn't feel right to her. I most appreciate that she's easy to reach, and though I know she works on a lot of projects, I always feel like her first priority.
