Words of advice...
...from my original, vacated LinkedIN account.
"Magda is one of the few people that understands all elements of creative concept development from inception to project completion. Her abilities include all levels of the creative process --from hands-on design work to superior management skills that get the best results possible." - Rosemary Danon, (client)
"Magda is one of the most inspired, driven, creative people I know. During her tenure at XPLANE she was a strong force for design excellence -- not only was she a great designer in her own right, she invested a lot of time and energy rallying and developing her peers, by finding and sharing examples of great work from the field and leading internal training initiatives." - Dave Gray, Founder, and Chairman, XPLANE (colleague)
"Magda is amazing! She can take complicated business and design challenges and solve them with her unique mix of creativity, experience, technical skill, and whimsy. While at XPLANE, I was fortunate to collaborate with Magda and witness her talents firsthand. She combined a deft client touch with an incredible sense of "what will actually work." Invariably, she'd hit the bulls-eye every time. I can't wait to work with her again." - Matthew Homann, Consultant, XPLANE (colleague)
"Magda was an amazing person to work for. She is highly creative and a very gracious mentor. I learned so much from working with her. She is an all-around, hands-on creative director. She can design, write copy, and program. As I have moved along in my career and worked with other creative directors I have realized how much I love working with people like her and how good I had it. She is fun, very practical, and willing to roll up her sleeves and dig in." - Jody Belliveau, Associate Producer & Interactive Copywriter, Ascent Media (colleague)
"Sometimes I wonder what Magda doesn't know about visual presentations. Nonetheless, she's never satisfied to sit back and rely on what she's already learned. With an endless fascination with the psychology and technology of conveying information using visuals, Magda is constantly learning new software, and reading the latest blogs and related books to expand her already-exceptional skills that range from storyboarding to video, animation, and online interactivity. Any forward-thinking organization would be lucky to work with Magda." - Joe Shoulak, Senior Illustrator, XPLANE (colleague)
