TESTIMONIALS FROM PEOPLE THAT I HAVE WORKED WITH:

Debra Stratford has an extraordinary mix of unique and relevant creativity with the mature practicality of business, end goals, timelines, the ability to listen and interpret outcomes, is mindful of budgets and cultural differences. I’ve witnessed Deb work professionally and purposefully with many personality types, at all times focused on delivering creations that are not only beautiful but that also fit the client’s needs for a true “consumer experience”. She has the innate ability to always see the ‘big picture’ and her expertise, sincerity, enthusiasm, inspiration, and professionalism is refreshing.

In my career, I have worked with hundreds of creatives on a global scale and I would like to take this opportunity to say that Debra is a world-class creative – not just with the work she produces, but equally on her infectious spirit, high standards and positive attitude. If given the opportunity, I would love to work with her again.

KATHRYN DE LA HOUSSAYE, EX ADIDAS (COLLABORATED ON A PRIVATE PROJECT)
I worked with Debra for 6 years [when I worked] with 3 separate companies. It was a primary intention to secure her multifaceted skillset and utilise them whenever and wherever I could manage. She was that good. I have full confidence that she will effortlessly succeed in any task or role made available to her.
MIKE MATA, (WORKED TOGETHER IN MEDICAL ADVERTISING)

Debra is awesome! During our time working together Debra was in charge of all of our marketing. She delivered high quality, eye catching material that was invaluable as a sales tool. I have no hesitation recommending Debra’s work and would love to work with her again in the future.

ANDREW WALKER, (COLLEAGUE @ FORENO.)
Debra has managed several design projects whilst working with me in the capacity of designer and web manager. She has exceptional attention to detail, meets deadlines, efficient, creative and has excellent communication skills. I would recommend Debra to any prospective employer.
RHONDA JACKSON, (COLLEAGUE @ CMPMEDICA)

I highly recommend Debra for any role in a creative team. While tutoring Debra she showed crisp talent and a sharp work ethic right from the start. She has a natural talent for visual composition, design balance and a clean polished… but also warm and soft aesthetic. This talent coupled with a strong work ethic, a mass of self motivation and a great understanding of what a client or viewer may want/need to see… well this combination places Debra right at the top of the talent pool!!!

GARETH DINNEEN, EX WETA DIGITAL (TUTOR @ MEDIA DESIGN SCHOOL)

Debra has an undeniably strong approach to designing for the web and her grasp of how social media really works is amazing. I feel confident in all my interactions with her and know she’ll always deliver what needs to be done.

Debra adds a sense of calm to the workplace and she always has her finger on the pulse of the many jobs going on in her workload. Debra has a number of great talents but I think it’s her unique approach to social media that stands out on top for me.

GREG KRAMER, (COLLEAGUE @ PUMPKIN PATCH HEAD OFFICE)
Debra is a very professional person who gives 100% to what ever she takes on. She is very proactive and client focused and would unconditionally recommend her.
