Elizabeth was incredible to work with, as she was professional, patient and proactive. She is a knowledgeable designer and a creative problem solver who made the process of transitioning to a new platform seamless and stress free. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else, and I was thrilled with the results.

Elizabeth is very professional, organized, and easy to work with. She took the time to understand my specific business needs before proceeding to create an effective digital strategy tailored to my schedule and goals. I would definitely work with her again.

Elizabeth Stilwell combines professionalism with a creative insight that holds precedence over anything I’ve encountered in field of website design. Not only did Elizabeth create an inspiring user-friendly platform for me to manage my website, she also created logos and concepts that were key in bringing the spirit and essence of my website to life.

Elizabeth is a talented and responsive illustrator with as much creativity as she has precision in skill. I worked with her on a project to bring some fun and interest to an ecommerce site through custom icons, and she delivered exactly what I wanted, but better - not to mention, she was a true pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to hire her again (in fact, I definitely will!).

Elizabeth has a genuine talent for visual communication. She completely understood my product, brand and vision and was able to convey it in the graphics she created for me. Working with her was an absolute pleasure and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Elizabeth not only took beautiful photos of my work and process, she was able to tell my story through her writing. I am still receiving traffic to my website from The Note Passer and proudly feature it on my press links. Elizabeth was able to convey the message behind A Wool Story in a unique and personal way and I am so grateful for the feature on her blog!
