"Louise creates beautiful designs that are innovative, modern and intelligent. She can design to brief or generate creative concepts to suit project purpose and customer need. She is efficient in all design software, realistic with timeframes, delivers to deadline and never compromises on quality. She has a focused design eye with an ability to conceptualise beyond current design trends, to create something unique while meeting your needs. I hope to continue my work with Lou in the future and build more beautiful brands."

– Kate Forrester, Founder, KAF&CO


"We found Louise to be an outstanding creative thinker and designer. She is a real ideas person with a visual sensibility to match. Louise has a great work ethic and is very driven and autonomous, which makes for an efficient, well-organised and dependable team member on one hand, and for a great creative problem solver on the other."
