What people say

Karen did some great work for the Career in Progress website of the Erasmus University Rotterdam. She revised all text into smooth and attractive text. She perfectly knows the target group so she adapted the style. Furthermore she made some excellent translations thanks to her native English.

I was particularly impressed by Karen’s visual design ability, which combined with her strong business skills meant that she could understand the business model and translate that into a coherent house style and build a stunning website.

Karen is easy to work with and always willing to go the extra mile to get the best results. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen wholeheartedly.

Karen werkt al een tijdje als vrijwilliger voor Stichting Olijf. Hiervoor heeft zij al veel materialen vormgegeven, van visitekaartjes tot beachflags en van social mediaplaatjes tot formulieren. Karen werkt netjes en secuur, is erg klantvriendelijk en is altijd bereid om nog een extra versie te laten zien. Olijf is heel blij met de professionele uitstraling die Karen heeft neergezet.

I worked with pleasure with Karen for several years when we were both employed at ISS. Karen’s IT skills meant she was able to successfully solve most technical problems encountered in the CMS. Furthermore, as a native English speaker and skilled at writing text specifically designed for a website, she ensured that the content of the site was faultless, well-written and fit for purpose.
I also worked with Karen in her role of graphic designer. I found her to be skilled at interpreting what were sometimes vague or unclear requests and come up with creative, imaginative and interesting designs, not only for websites but also for posters, brochures, flyers and magazines. I was particularly impressed with her phenomenal eye for detail, which I experienced when we worked together on an ISS bi-yearly journal. Karen was responsible for the layout of the journal – ensuring that the text and photos fit in the available space, adjusting photos where necessary and coming up with creative solutions to problems of layout. It was a pleasure for me to work with someone who was not only so obviously competent, but who was also fast, quick to understand requests and problems and who was active in ensuring that the final journal was as good as it could possibly be.
I would be very happy to work with Karen again – apart from her obvious skills, she is personable, friendly and always willing to help. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
