I am pleased to provide this endorsement for Candice Stevens as a graphic artist without reservation. Her creative energy and work effort combine to produce a superior result. During the lead-up to 2016 ZORA! Festival, we lost our original graphic artist due to a family health challenge. Candice had to assume responsibility for our signature piece, an 80-page annual publication which had yet to be started, one week before Christmas and approximately three weeks before our deadline, as well as take on a complete redesign of our magazine. I believe what has impressed me most about her work is that it is her intellectual curiosity that serves as the driving force for her creative energy. It has been a privilege to work with her and I look forward to future opportunities
for us to collaborate.
I had the pleasure of working with Candice while I was head of Rollins College’s Marketing & Communications team. I found her to be extremely creative, detail-oriented and deadline-focused. A wonderful person to have on your team, I can’t recommend her enough.
One of the secrets to good management is hiring people who make you look good. Candice made me…and Rollins…look good. Her talent, dedication, attention to detail, and understanding of the “big picture” allowed me to be more productive as a “hands-off” manager.
Candice is a great designer, with incredible creative talent. She is always ready to push her creativity to the next level while respecting the requirements of the client. She is open to creative feedback and willing to collaborate with fellow designers. Candice is highly organized, trustworthy, and able to manage projects and clients with true professionalism. Given the opportunity, I would gladly work with her on any project
I worked with Candice during her time as a graphic designer at Rollins College. In that role she was a vital partner in helping to shape the visual language we used to promote the programming from the History Department and Africa and African American Studies program. Candice was able to work closely with me to create unique posters and publication templates that added meaning and context to our effort to reach out to community on and off campus. Her skill at identifying how our unique content could be presented to the public was a major asset. In an environment that many voices are trying to get attention, she was able to help us package our content in a way that engaged our potential audience. In addition to the creative thought she brought to our projects she was timely, creative and professional. I can recommend her without reservation.
We hired Candice to help us redesign our website and further market our company on the internet. She completely redesigned our website, which was out of date and wasn’t attracting any customers. Now our new website accurately represents our products and services. Since our website was redesigned by Candice, our website traffic has greatly increased and so has business. In addition she has and continued to make suggestions of things we could do to market our company more efficiently. Whenever we need her to update something or make a change she is always responsive and works quickly. We truly appreciate all the work Candice has done for Foodie Catering.
