Interested in fast, creative and accurate work? Hire Amy immediately. I received second to NONE service and outcomes. Best part? She speaks 'business owner' speak - not just 'art' speak. I've always struggled to find a designer partner that could translate 'picture this' language into 'look at this' language - and I finally found her. I'd recommend hiring Amy for any of your visual design needs. Thanks Amy!
Melissa Albers : CEO, The Authentic Leader

Amy is not only an energetic and dedicated expert but also inspiring. Amy is customer focused with lots of knowledge in the creative and marketing arenas. What I enjoyed most about working with Amy is the fact that she can handle multiple facets of a project, not only the design, but project management from concept to completion. Her expertise is vast and her works is of the highest quality. Honest, open minded and on time and on budget - she is a great asset in getting projects completed that require higher level creative thinking and experience.

Amy has worked with my team for over a year now, on a mostly full-time basis. She is one of the best designers I have ever worked with.

Amy's ability to juggle multiple projects was unlike any I've seen before and made a noticeable difference in the productivity level of our team. Between arranging much-needed lunch outings at Chipotle, or reviewing the latest movie releases, Amy did her best to keep a smile on everyone's faces. As a team member or a leader, Amy deserves a positive recommendation.

She clarified issues quickly and with little room for misinterpretation. When it comes to an Art Director I could not ask for more. I fully endorse Amy Mills and I hope to work her again in the near future!

I first met Amy when I needed an Art Director to jump into a project that I was managing that needed immediate attention.

Julie Zulkosky : Sr. Project Manager at OLSON

Amy's passion for great creative was evident in the direct mail and email projects we worked on together. She knocked it outta the ballpark on more than one occasion. It's a pleasure to see a senior-level Art Director sharing valuable expertise with the team while still always watching for learning opportunities to present themselves.
