What my clients have to say

Marissa is professional, personable and a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend Marissa more highly, she has impeccable attention to detail, pride in her work and always went above and beyond in supporting the team and delivering beautiful work.

Cecealia Dalgairns
Senior Digital Producer

Marissa has a keen eye for design; understood the production process from beginning to end, not just in the print and digital area but in terms of where it fit in with video and motion design too and was focused and diligent in all the work she did. She brought creative ideas into brainstorms, had a knack for being able to subtly enhance the work without overdoing it and was quick and thorough in all aspects of her work. In addition to all of that, Marissa was friendly and a genuine pleasure to work with.

Greer Bolomey
SBS Senior Producer: Film & Broadcast

Marissa did a packaging pitch project for me and I could not rate her skills and professionalism high enough. Not only did she meet the brief on every front, but went over and above on delivering top class designs with impeccable product mockups. She is an incredible designer to work with. Highly recommend.

Justin Warren
Packaging Director

Marissa is highly technically competent, has a fantastic understanding of design and how people engage with it and quickly grasps the scope and requirements of any given task. She is solutions-oriented and regularly puts in additional hours to ensure deadlines are met. I cannot recommend her more highly.

Bruce Legg
Director, Strika Entertainment

During her tenure at The Graphic Ballroom, Marissa was responsible for concept and design across a number of small and large brands. She worked efficiently and neatly. Her skill set surpassed many with more years experience, with exceptional Photoshop and illustrative expertise. I would not hesitate to rehire her and recommend her for any endeavor that she may choose to pursue – she would be an asset to any company.

Jason Forbes
Director, The Graphic Ballroom

Marissa is one of the strongest Graphic Designers I have worked with in my career. During my time at Ella Baché I had the privilege of having Marissa work alongside me in the Marketing team. She has an awesome sense of commitment to her projects and her determination to drive things forward is beyond what I have experienced before working with previous designers. She is a design enthusiast who understands even the most complex brief and above all works with a great attitude which is testament to her strong skills and patient nature.

Triona Maddick
Head of Marketing, Ella Baché

Working with Marissa was a real pleasure. Professional, solution driven, quick understanding of project, enormous creativity. From beginning to end, I always felt she grabbed the project and ran with it. No changes in design were too much. I would most definitely recommend working with her.

Veerle Witdouck
Owner, Pink Swan

We went to Marissa not having the language to share with her what we wanted. We knew we needed to rebrand and relaunch our business with a whole new look. We wanted it to be modern, fun and eye catching. Marissa created a fabulous new design and logo that we absolutely loved. She also did the website and other areas of the business. This was a game changer for us and without a doubt in our minds increased business, bookings and customer perception of our product. We are truly grateful to Marissa and her creative gift!

Michelle Luscombe
Owner, Paella Bar

We love our new website. Marissa was able to understand our vision and translate it into a beautiful and functional website that represents our firm well. She was so easy to work with, having so much experience and knowledge in the industry with a unique creative flare. It made the process smooth and enjoyable instead of the daunting experience I have previously encountered.

What I can do for your brand

Crafting a powerful brand involves more than simply narrating any ordinary tale. A truly remarkable brand narrative grips individuals, inspiring them to take notice, engage, and forge a connection. While I may not be a wordsmith to forge your company’s vision and narrative, I am skilled in leveraging the power of great visual communication to provide your audience with compelling reasons to notice, adore and embrace your brand story.

Graphic design is my passion and I believe that design and art exist as distinct, yet harmonious dimensions that offer their most gratifying rewards, when embraced in unison with great storytelling. If you’re looking to take your brand to the next level through engaging and stunning visuals that effectively and compellingly narrates your story, get in touch and let’s make visual magic happen.
