"Sheila is fantastic to work with. We've had a longstanding relationship with her dating back to when she designed the website for our wedding, and then moving on to our restaurants like Huckleberry and Milo & Olive. She recently did a much needed revamp of our Rustic Canyon website and it looks great.  Sheila is creative and collaborative and really easy to work with.  We're looking forward to working with her on our new projects."

– Josh Loeb, Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants, Santa Monica, CA


"Working with Sheila has been such a wonderful experience.  She listens carefully to your needs and really works with her Clients to achieve the highest standards that pertains to each job.  Her aesthetic allows her to tailor every clients brand into a unique vision.  My website only got better and I am thrilled with the results.  Sheila is amazing and I highly recommend her talents to anyone."

"Sheila has been instrumental in both my husband's [Chef Arnold Eric Wong's] and my life. Not only did she design his restaurants and bakery web sites, she was our go-to designer for our wedding invites. Because Sheila is incredibly intuitive and creative she created perfectly elegant and modern invitations that reflected my husband and me perfectly.

When I launched my own coaching business, Sheila was the obvious choice for designing my web site. I had no creative vision of what it should look like but only had a message that I wanted to deliver. This is where Sheila completely blew me away - her ability to "see" my message in colors and logos was beyond what I was expecting. Her designs that she created for me to choose from were so different yet so reflective of me that it was incredibly difficult to decide!

But beyond her talent is her character. Sheila has a beautiful grace that makes it extremely enjoyable to work with her; while being completely open to my ideas she also holds to what she knows will be effective. I believe that it is because of this her talent really shines through. I couldn't be happier and I can't recommend her enough."

"Sheila worked with me and Lori Backen on all of our branding: logo development and its applications, web design and ongoing development, menus, all other on-line venues, proprietary/branded retail product line and items like custom china and staff uniforms. We love Sheila. She is a brilliant artist, savvy designer and has helped us navigate our desire for restrained but clear and strong branding."

– Stanley Morris, French Blue, St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA


"We're getting all kinds of great feedback on the website: positive, appreciative, and enthusiastic! The website is looking absolutely terrific and very polished. Many heartfelt thanks from all of us for the superb job and for your amazing patience and responsiveness."

"I have had the great privilege of working with Sheila over the course of the last few years. She has a keen sense of graphic design and has captured beautifully the nature of my brand and the type of image I want to project. With her help, my business has blossomed over the last year. I continue to reach out to her for help with new projects because of her professionalism, creativity, and ability to transform my concept into a concrete vision."

– Sarah Siebold, S'more Bakery, Los Angeles, CA


"Sheila was an absolutely fantastic choice for all of our branding, design, web and print needs. When we were looking for someone to help us with our branding, we saw a variety of design sensibilities but hers immediately clicked. She not only took branding seriously, but she made it something very unique.

Ever since then, we've been extremely happy. As for the logistical stuff, she always been on time, and she's been a lot of fun to work with. As for the talent end of things, she definitely goes above and beyond. Lots of cool ideas, beautifully executed, stuff we could never have done on our own. There have been many people who comment on how awesome our logo is, including our color scheme, as well as our website."

– Blake W., Founder & Partner, Scooter Media, Los Angeles, CA


"We love working with Sheila!! Over the past 6 years, she has supported all of our graphic needs: from re-envisioning our branding, to updating our logo, to building out a new section of our website when we expanded our business, to redesigning our collateral materials. She updates our website regularly and designs all of our blast emails and advertisements. She is creative, easy to work with and a good listener.

Sheila always presents fresh ideas while keeping our overall branding in mind. She is flexible and willing to make small tweaks or do a total redesign, depending on the needs and time frame of a project. When we’ve had unusual deadlines, she works well under pressure and pitches in to get the job done. She is pleasure to work with and our branding has flourished through her design."

– Katelyn and Katie, Hitched Salon, Washington DC


"Thank heavens for Sheila. After a happy chance encounter with her lovely site, I just had to meet the "she" behind the "designs". To my delight, Sheila's felt like a kindred creative spirit ever since. Not only is she talented, timely, and professional to work with, she even puts up with my admittedly hands-on ("collaborative" as she kindly puts it) style. She's a joy to work with."

– Kim O'Neill, Good Stock - Home & Family, Seattle, WA


"Sheila was clear, organized, professional, open minded, positive, and hugely effective. I had a truly gratifying experience working with her. I am picky and detail oriented by nature, and have been told I can be a "pain in the neck" by more than a few people. Sheila handled me with ease, grace, and professionalism. I learned a great deal from working with someone with such great integrity."   

Stephanie Shuken, Village Arts Center, Pacific Palisades, CA


"Our website was designed so well and functionally that it's much easier to work with and update than other previous restaurant sites of managed and worked on in the past. Sheila has been extremely helpful at any time I've needed her. I'm very grateful to be able to depend on her time and again."

– Esra Oktar, Hawks Provisions & Public House, Sacramento, CA


"We have been very impressed by Sheila to literally read our minds and deliver our company identity. She perfectly symbolizes our vision and product and conveys the stylish, elegant and modern image to our product labels. She really listened effectively to what we were seeking, brought forward beautiful design ideas for our consideration, and did it all in a timely manner and with excellent communication skills. We highly recommend her to any company or individual."
