REFERRAL STATEMENTS


Referral Statement by Bill Schumacher, Creative Director of Ricoh:

"The universe must have allowed me to cash in on some good karma when Jess and I met. At the time I was looking to balance out a digital-heavy design team by locating a candidate that oozed ridiculous amounts of print talent, but still had web chops... Boom! ~ Jess appeared. Our paths crossed, I brought her onto the team, and I simply couldn’t have been luckier for it. Over the last 3 years working with Jess her talents weren’t the only thing she brought to the table. She possesses the type of character traits that personify what I value in building a strong and supportive group of designers: humble nature, consistent, and approachable. No ego, yet unequivocally creative. A recipe for team cohesiveness and longevity where Jess fit the bill perfectly. The strength of the design projects Jess produced for the brand were always on point. She demonstrated a solid grasp of creative ‘throttle’ when appropriate – not breaking brand, but rather, pushed the boundaries when appropriate to ensure compelling results that quickly gained her favor from our numerous stakeholders. As a result, I strongly recommend Jess and hope we get the chance to work together again at some point in the future!"

Referral Statement by Jacob Dietz, Creative Director of International Cruise and Excursions:

"As the Executive Director of Marketing Creative Services, I had the opportunity to interview, hire and manage Jessica Lehr as a Graphic Designer and was quickly impressed by her strong work ethic, organizational skills and creative output. In our large in-house department, Jessica was tasked with projects for both internal and external clients, routinely interacting directly with both to ensure the best possible results. With more than 200 projects trafficked through the department every month, her ability to switch gears and pinch hit when needed frequently made the difference between happy clients and missed deadlines. With her outgoing personality and positive attitude coupled with her design capabilities and willingness to go above and beyond, I am confident that Jessica would be an outstanding addition to any organization and I wholeheartedly recommend her."

Referral Statement by Rory Faust, Director of The Lumberjack:

“Jessica hired, trained and managed a design staff, spearheaded
our advertisement design, and pioneered creative layouts in the newspaper. This is a difficult position that requires exceptional management and design skills, as well as a strong ability to work under tight deadlines and produce high-quality work. I firmly believe Jessica is an excellent individual who has the aptitude and enthusiasm to tackle any assignment.”
