I can’t tell you how refreshing it’s been to work with Bridget. What I can tell you is how quick she was to address designs, provide concepts, and suggest edits! Our team loved the energy she brought to the entire process of designing our graphics and the thoroughness Bridget delivered for our brand! I’m sitting here looking at our final proofs and already brainstorming on ideas to have her design something new and exciting for us! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
As we began our company rebranding effort, we quickly realized it was necessary to bring an experienced and talented designer in house. When Bridget came into the office, I immediately knew she was exactly that. I quickly learned that in addition to having a fantastic eye for design, she is incredibly efficient and dependable. … She is able to work well on multiple, simultaneous projects and, perhaps more importantly, is able to deliver final products that meet—or usually surpass—the varying expectations of the members of the management team.

By acting quickly, Fresh Picked Design saved Capital One $50,000 on this rewards catalog project.

By posting multiple advance proofs for reviewers, working late evenings to update the production proof, and collaborating with the photography vendor and the pre-press facility, we sent the catalog to the printer error-free and on time — saving the company $50,000.

She demonstrates a strong command of design principles and is always proactive in recommending process changes that would benefit our organization — even after she has completed the project. Bridget’s someone I will certainly turn to again.

The Ratings and Reviews email campaign Fresh Picked Design created for Crutchfield was named as “a perfect example” of why ecommerce analyst and blogger Linda Bustos loves Crutchfield’s marketing. Incorporating ratings and reviews is “an effective and underused tactic for retail email,” Bustos writes, noting that this tactic helps persuade impulse buyers and cautious consumers alike. “All-in-all, Crutchfield’s is an excellent example of selling to different types of shoppers in one email, without cluttering the creative.

She has a special way of motivating her team through positive support, vast knowledge...and a great laugh! I highly recommend Bridget and know she is always equipped for a good challenge.
I’ve worked with Bridget on both print and digital projects. These projects have varied in scope from full website redesigns to smaller print projects with heavy versioning. Despite the tight deadlines she always seems to be working under, she never misses a date and the work is always top notch. She’s a skilled designer, an outstanding Photoshop artist, a great communicator and an asset to any creative team.
Bridget was extremely personable and got along well with everyone here. She never complained about anything she was asked to do, and she demonstrated a great deal of determination and knowledge, working her way through several difficult tasks. She was pleasant to work with and took direction well.Bridget did an excellent job while she was here. She was honest and hardworking. We would have loved for her to have stayed on longer, however we found someone to permanently fill the position which she was contracting for us. We do plan to call her in if she is available at times when we have a greater workload. I would recommend her to any employer.
