Yanique is super creative, flexible and versatile. She’s excelled at updating our exhibition designs with a new creative approach while making sure to evolve within the brand guidelines. She went above and beyond by providing research to support her design choices as well as creating a design chart for it. She also supported our International events that were a huge success. I truly enjoyed working with her!

I had the pleasure of working with Yanique when creating the design and brand elements for two of our International Strategy Alliance events at InComm. It was a challenging time, Yanique was new to InComm, it was our inaugural Asia Pacific Strategy Alliance and the two events were just one week apart. Yanique was flexible, responsive and rose to the challenge. Her creative was fantastic and the execution of her designs at the events was second to none!

I had the pleasure of working with Yanique while at NewPoint Media Group. During this time we collaborated on several creative and branding projects. Yanique was very in tune with the needs of our brands and always had a creative way of addressing any branding need. I admire her creative abilities and management style. I have worked with dozens of designers and what I think Yanique excels at is the willingness to have an open discussion about design and creative choices. Most designers that I’ve worked with are very defensive when faced with feedback. However, Yanique shows astounding patience when communicating with upper management regarding design. This to me is a skill that you want in a creative director; the ability to communicate well at all levels. She is a great team player and just a great person overall. I would highly recommend Yanique to any company looking for a well rounded Creative Director.
