“I have had the opportunity to work with Melissa Cara Rigoli on two different graphic design projects—creating a logo and designing a poster for a major festival—and cannot recommend her more highly! In each case she demonstrated the sensitivity and flexibility to align with a different set of requirements and still produce quality work.

That she is talented and creative goes without saying. Melissa maintains high professional standards such that she consistently produces work above and beyond the scope originally agreed upon. She is an awesome artist and person to work with!”

“Melissa is an amazingly receptive and creative designer. She did an outstanding job in not only coming up with a beautiful and exciting logo for my Costa Rica Bed & Breakfast, but she did it by really listening to what I wanted. I am happy to say that she not only met my expectations, but she truly exceeded them!

“We hired Melissa to redesign our website over other agencies that we interviewed for two reasons: First, she was far and away the easiest to talk to, and we felt that with a project as big and complex as ours, her open and comfortable communication skills – and her great sense of humor – would make for a positive experience. Secondly, when we looked at the websites and print designs in Melissa’s portfolio, they made us feel something, and that’s exactly what we wanted for the Stephanie Tade Agency’s site.

Both of those instincts were right on: Melissa was a joy to talk to throughout the entire process, from brainstorming the site and logo to training us to keep the finished site up and running; and our new site beautifully evokes the feeling and the essence of the Stephanie Tade Agency.”

“I have been working with Melissa on the process of consciously branding my business and creating a logo. Melissa’s ability to listen deeply, read between the lines and capture the essence of my business is remarkable. She is patient and curious asking poignant questions that get to the heart of my core values and business ethics.

Thank you Melissa what a joy and a gift it is to work with you.”
