“I’ve worked with many professionals before but working with Sandy and her “network” of illustrators, photographers, editors and other experts is always a dream come true. I will never hire anyone else! She is everything you’d ever want in a designer — also totally reliable, delivers top quality results, on time, within your budget and is a team player from the get-go. The most amazing part about working with Sandy, however, is her uncanny instinct and ability to get inside your head. She immediately knows what you want and has the chops to turn your vaguest wishes and ideas into concrete reality whether you’re designing a website, catalog, logo, signs, fliers, or a complete advertising campaign. I totally trust her with any advertising or design project. Best of all . . . . she is totally down to earth, has a great sense of humor and has become a life-long friend!”

“Sandy Bassett is one of the most creative, conscientious, and hard-working creatives I’ve ever known. I first met Sandy while working as a pre-press production designer at a top-notch print shop. She was always a joy to work with, her files were immaculate, and she was very attentive to all her projects — showing up right on time for press checks and sometimes even arriving with treats in tow! Her excitement for design is infectious and it is always an energizing experience to work with such a can-do creative director. She’ll challenge you to do your best and do it quickly while also maintaining a professional and amicable relationship. Sandy is always ready for a new challenge and her work is always fresh. She is a gem in the design world. I highly recommend taking advantage of any opportunity to work with her!
