What Do People Say About Me?

Tony is extremely easy to work with. He was lightning fast in response to requests and always eager to take on a last minute task. He is, frankly, the best graphic artist I have worked with in my 42 years as a game creator. He is cooperative, inventive, and manages an art team extremely well – keeping them happy and productive. He does not fear bringing problems to his superior’s attention, but accompanies said problems with suggestions for solution.

Sandy Petersen

President at Petersen Games

Tony is one of the best employees I’ve ever managed. He is quick, (as well as quick-witted, which is appreciated) smart, and thorough. As the only web-designer and programmer on staff, he is able to juggle tasks easily and perform all duties for 4 different companies with ease. Tony is proactive, performs well with little supervision, and trustworthy. I would hire Tony again in a heartbeat!

 

Emilie Totten

Supervisor at CFM Consulting

Tony is an excellent designer. He can easily assimilate the details and direction of a job and design a solution that is aesthetically pleasing and functional in a short period of time. He is proficient in multiple software packages and demonstrates the ability to learn new packages and techniques with ease. Tony would be an asset to any company.

Lucas Nicholas

Coworker at Ball Publishing

I worked with Tony for over a year on various types of online marketing initiatives including ecommerce and email marketing, and his creative, user experience, and marketing skills are tremendous assets to Successories. Tony’s work on email campaigns resulted in significant increases in conversions and sales, and Tony also implemented many website improvements that enhanced the user experience and improved the brand presentation.
