Allison is at once a pleasure to work with, and an incredibly talented visual and UX designer. She always delivers on time, on spec, and is a great collaborator and team member. I've worked with her on several occasions and wouldn't hesitate to hire her again, or to recommend her to a friend. ­

Allison was a pleasure to have on my team at Apple. She was part of an internal email creative and production 'agency' that was responsible for all customer and transactional email at Apple. Throughout her tenure she was a tireless worker and a real pro - passionate, capable and motivated. More than that her 'can do' attitude was a pleasure to see every day and she had a positive influence on all her co-workers. I'd happily recommend Allison for any design or production role. ­
- Greg Olson, Sr. Manager, while Interactive Marketing and Analytics at Apple
I worked with Allison during the early stages of a new project when we needed a designer's touch on the concept the team was working on. She was able to dive right in, process through all the months of research and ideas and "put it down on paper". We were able to assemble together a set of workflows that provided a much needed grounding for the project. She was a great collaborator: detailed, articulate and responsive. I loved working with Allison and would recommend her to friends. ­
- Chong Han Chua, while Senior Program Manager at Microsoft
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Allison, and we are thrilled with our new website! From concept to execution, Allison is very hands-on and detail-oriented. She reviewed the analytics for our previous website, created detailed user personas, and delivered a comprehensive plan to create a more engaging user experience – from wireframes to pixel perfect designs. Allison was very hands-on in the development process, which was extremely valuable. We look forward to collaborating more with Allison in the near future as our site continues to evolve. ­

Allison joined our team as a contractor and didn't hesitate jumping right in and contributing, offering her perspective, and helping solve the design and UX challenges of our new startup website project. She has excellent design sense, highly professional, strong communicator and very easy to work with. Allison brings that senior, experienced value that helps move design work from good to great -- and the client loved it. ­
- Jack Macy, Co-Founder, Product & Design, CSTMR Fintech Marketing
It’s easy to say that I could not have taken my product to the next level without Allison on the team. First of all, Allison cares deeply about understanding the problem at hand, both in terms of user wants and needs and in terms of the technology used in the solution. That virtue formed the basis for really solid interface designs that we could quickly incorporate into an early-stage product, and we’ve had strongly positive responses from users and customers alike. Last but not least, Allison is a breeze to work with. ­
