  TESTIMONIALS

  PHIL OLSON

  VP Data-driven Marketing

"Shelley is an excellent designer with exceptional skills conveying the strategic message in a visually compelling manner. I have worked with her for almost a year and am continually impressed with her ability to turn ambiguity into concise design and narrative. Shelley establishes a strong point of view and supports her work with design fundamentals and creative flare. And no task is too big or too small. She turned a 30+ page deck into 4 slides and maintained the integrity of the original content and the complete story. Magic! She can also bang out a LinkedIn add.   I trust Shelley to work on projects for my senior clients because I know she cares deeply about the outcome and the work. I recommend Shelley whole heartedly."

  GREG SMITH

  Sr. Marketing Manager

"Shelley is not only a strong project manager with a keen attention to detail, but more importantly, Shelley is a creative thinker with a natural aptitude for producing inventive and compelling design solutions.  I have also benifited from Shelley's ability to work under tight deadlines, while maintaining a sense of humor and commitment to the cause. Shelley will be a strong asset to any creative team."

  SCOTT MACRAE

  Coldwell Banker

"I am completely thrilled with the website SKN-Designs created for me. Throughout the entire process Shelley was very response to my vision while doing an amazing job in taking my ideas and converting them to reality. Shelley kept me regularly updated on the site creation progress while talking me through how to best to incorporate my ideals and message.  I cannot recommend SKN-Designs highly enough if you are looking for an innovative design, great communication, wonderful follow up, and keeping your vision and wants top priority. I have had several clients that have taken me on as their real estate agent based on my website and the statement it made about me as an agent."

  AARON PETRAS

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Shelley on several occasions. She’s a broad, systemic thinker who uses her design experience to convey complex ideas. She knows how to work with creatives and more importantly non-creatives alike to get to the core strategic concepts that lead to great design. Shelley meets deadlines and consistently delivers high quality work. She’s a great collaborator.”

"You will not find a more loyal and authentic  professional than that of miss Neves.  Her eye is sharp and she is quite savvy in the world of business.  It is my belief that it stems from her ability to connect with so many in such an easy manner.  Shelley, takes pride in her work and her promises.  She meets deadlines and ALWAYS steers us in the right direction.  Shelley will go over and then some to make sure she has given the best  recommendations and is consistent on follow through.  I know that we can always count on her through and through, and I am always extremely pleased with her work.  Miss Neves is a true ally to have for any / every successful business and their strategy."
