"Our company had approached Donna with a concept of a new packaging design for our lovely candies. These were to enhance our current subscription model packaging to consumers as well as launch a brand new product as we became an omni channel company selling into the b2b business. Together our team worked with Donna as she put her brilliant, creative and skillful attributes to the test to create the absolute perfect packaging we could ever ask for! She solved a lot of our problems and even identified new ones we could encounter down the road, which have saved us time and money.

. . . brought strengths that others would not have done . . .
“Donna brought a couple of strengths that others would not have done: One was combining background elements with the featured design, integrating them to create a whole affect that was outstanding.

She was also very clever at managing "gender" in design helping us target boys markets vs girls vs non-gender neutral products.”
