We’ve been working with Verena on a number of projects over the last couple of years and we’re consistently delighted with what she’s able to deliver for us. Working across a number of brands and business sectors she’s been able to appreciate the nuances of each and give each their own look and feel. An expert in both design and UX she’s been able to help guide our work to efficient and productive conclusions. Looking forward to continuing working with her on our future projects.

"Verena has been a delightful member of our team. She is really diligent and works quickly - but with a good deal of care. Verena always finds ways to inject personality, creativity and passion into her work. She understands B2B and the technology sector which is rare in this business. I have no hesitation in recommending Verena for contract work."

"Verena initially joined my team at Haymarket and since then I have re-employed her twice - that pretty much says all you need to know about her as a freelance designer. She is creative, dependable, honest and great to work with. I'd recommend her highly."
