Sarah Stewart, Marketing at Outernets New York:
Mj was extremely responsive and quick. She handles pressure and tight deadlines better than any designer I have ever worked with and is accommodating to her client's needs. She is very creative, puts her heart into her work, and easy to get along with.
I would recommend working with her 100%!

Homoarchy Blogger/Owner Justine Kremer, New York:
"I would enthusiastically recommend MJ Salinas, who designed a logo and header for my website. She was receptive to ideas, communicated in a timely manner, and delivered everything in a very reasonable amount of time. When I discovered that some other website already had a theme similar to the ideas I had sent her originally, I was very disappointed. She came up with a completely new concept that wound up actually being much better in terms of branding and over all look. I was grateful for the new ideas and am extremely happy with the final result."
Mariangeles Lacayo Navarro, Emprendedora, Costa Rica:

Jonathan Friedrichs, Independent Filmmaker, New York:
Mj designed a movie poster for my short film Chivalry, it came out perfectly. I really appreciated how she watched the film ahead of time & asked me questions about it so could find the right tone and style for the poster. Then she added her own artistic touch which was way better than my original concept. Mj is a true artist and talented graphic designer. Very easy to work with and she responded to my messages right away. I would definitely recommend her to anyone out there looking for a dynamic and professional movie poster!
Christopher Zajac, Independent Filmmaker, New York:
Awesome work on the poster! Mj asked all the right questions, added valuable suggestions and she finished the project ahead of schedule. Highly recommended! Hire her immediately!
