How can I help u?

Let's Work Together.

I have been working with Barbi for several years. She initially helped me design my website. As the years went by, Barbi has been on top of new technology and design and has always been proactive to suggest changes and updates to keep it fresh and user friendly.

When I said I wanted to learn how to make non-design changes on my own, she spent time teaching me how to interact with the “back end” of the site so I could make scheduling changes on my own, but she was always there to help and support me. When technology changed, she taught me the new technology.

She has just worked with me to ensure my website clearly reflects my work and offerings to my clients during the pandemic on a virtual platform.

Barbi is always professional, she is very creative, she is extremely patient and is a great teacher. She is a wonderful coach and designer and I highly recommend her for your design, website and technology coaching needs.

I have worked with Barbi for more years than I can remember. She is my absolute go-to person for all things graphic. I am always amazed not only at what she creates but at what she “adds” to the process. 

Over the years she has worked with me on so many projects, but notably on creating an extensive range of marketing materials for my nutrition practice and online weight loss program. 

I am now retired but I still call on Barbi. Most recently she designed a book I wrote about my father called “Who’s Lou?” and she was able to capture and reflect graphically the essence of my father and his story in a way that is just beyond words and it has received rave reviews.

Barbi brings to the “table” (okay, the digital version of the table …) not only an extensive background and experience in so many aspects of the digital world, but she thrives on the learning curve, is on top of the latest technology and is always learning more, doing more, creating more. Her mind works tangentially and you will always get more than you bargained for – in a good way.

She brings a curiosity and humour and authenticity to her work and in addition to being a true professional she is a gift to the soul. 

If you hire Barbi I can guarantee this – you are in for a ride – a really, really good one!

Ramona Josephson

Working with Barbi on a variety of jobs over the past several years has always been a pleasure.

She’s creative and efficient and always brings great ideas to a project. She gets things done with flair and precision.

More important, she’s a great person and fun to work with. She’s the first person I think of when I’ve got a project that needs creative energy.

Richard Banner

I was happy to contribute to this amazing logo creation project and immensely enjoyed my cooperation with Barbi. 

Not only Barbi is a talented manager, she is also a skilled marketing and advertising professional so I’ve learned a couple of new tricks throughout the project.

I’d be more than happy to work with Barbi again! Highly recommended

Pavlo Haiduk

Upwork, Logo Designer

Dun Rite! When I discussed the cover, back and spine of my first book with her, she jumped and within 24 hours I had a treasure trove of material for my consideration. 

She’s ON TIME AND ON BUDGET! And she’s charming and fun and she takes care of her clients. What else?

 

David Berner

I highly recommend her as a graphic designer. I have worked with Barbi over the last 8 years. I was immensely pleased with her level of talent, her diligent efforts and her willingness to work on any project.

She has experience working on illustrations, newsletters, reports, invitations, posters, displays and brochures. Barbi is proficient on all of the latest versions of the most cutting edge design software and is always eager to learn new skills. I have been impressed with her range of knowledge, her ability to meet tight deadlines and the excellent quality of her work. Along with her creative abilities and technical skills, she has a talent for marketing as well. I have been impressed with Barbi’s vivacious personality and boundless energy, and I was even more impressed with the high quality graphic designs she was able to produce for us.

I will definitely be working with her again!
