"Creative and the patience of a saint. With a meagre design brief, Karen Mc Dade somehow managed to produce a unique and creative concept and design, within a ridiculous deadline. The thorough attention to detail and care with this assignment produced a design that completely matched our existing brand identity. Karen displayed unquestionable understanding of our marketing and business requirements within a very short space of time and we certainly benefited from her talents and skills."
Steven Phillips, Marketing Manager, Altair Financial Services
"I couldnít have asked for a better talented individual to assist with all our design work for oneplanet advertising. She works under extreme deadlines with ease, and has been a pillar of strength for my business. I couldnít have done it without her. The ability to switch gears and approach any project with a fresh perspective and a basis of knowledge is critical, and this has been done with the greatest of ease. Karen and I have built a really good working relationship, and Iím glad I found her to handle our work. Beyond her creative abilities, Karen has shown unbelievable commitment to my company and our clients, being able to leave her in some cases holding the reigns and flying the flag high for oneplanet."
Jody Butler, CEO, Oneplanet Advertising

She has successfully developed the perfect website for our organization, which has resulted in increased traffic, donations and volunteers. Though she was an asset in developing our online image, Karen was also extraordinarily helpful in other areas.

She is a team player and would make a great asset to any organization."
