Mariana has been an absolute joy to work with! We hired her to refresh our digital marketing materials and design our blog. She's an excellent communicator, understands design from a marketing lens, continually meets deadlines and exceeds expectations, and is an all-around best-in-class designer. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with their design needs.

Mariana is a pleasure to work with. She made a challenging project easier by exhibiting patience and flexibility. Her graphic design and presentation skills are excellent and she is able to take a concept and bring it to life with little direction.

She communicates effectively and adheres to deadlines. I look forward to working with Mariana again soon.

Mariana's quality of work was outstanding. She 100% adhered to the tight deadlines. Her communication was always positive and flawless. Even more importantly, she followed my instructions to the letter and - because she immediately grasped the deliverable's purpose – she went beyond my instructions to deliver a document that was both more effective and beautiful.

I knew Mariana had the vision to make a fashion-forward and artistic custom website for us based on her previous work. She was an absolute professional and a delight to work with throughout the design and development process, requiring very little guidance from us. She stuck to all of the deadlines that were outlined, provided detailed and regular updates, and delivered an outstanding website for our luxury pyjama brand. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Mariana is always a pleasure to work with. She is a great combination of being artistically-driven, but also very detailed-oriented.

Her creative mind is always coming up with designs that are beautiful, inspiring, and unique to each brand. She is able to adapt to brands of all industries, often bringing out aspects of the project that may have never been thought of.

Not only do her design skills surpass many of the designers I've worked with in the past, but her passion to create work that is outstanding is contagious and admirable. Along with her endearing personality and love for people, she is truly someone I would want to work with everyday.

I worked with Mariana for over two years at Mythic. Throughout that time, she was an absolute champion to work with. To every project, she brings strategic creative thinking, design expertise and steadfast positivity. One of my favorite strength's of Mariana is her willingness to not shy away from a problem, even if it requires her to step out of her comfort zone and expand her ever-growing skill set. Any company, agency, or team would be lucky to have Mariana onboard.
