TESTIMONIALS

I have had the good fortune of working with many amazing people, and am inspired by the results of my design work for them. Read on to discover what people have to say.

Tendai Johnson

Professional Artist, Co-Curator of Uniting Diverse Artists 2014 Event and Art Professor

“It gives me great pleasure to recommend Roberta Hoffman as an outstanding graphic designer. Roberta worked closely with me in designing and developing visual communication products for our successful “Uniting Diverse Artists Art Auction” at the end of last year. I believe I am in a prime position to comment on her qualifications and her work in my capacity as the lead person of this event. Roberta listened attentively and asked questions regarding our intended audience and the overall mission of the event. She quickly sketched a variation of logo designs and was most helpful in guiding us through the design selection process. Once we decided on a design, she proceeded to develop our website, catalogue and announcement cards within budget and timeline. The latter being a particularly important achievement in that we did not provide her all the information she needed within a timely fashion. Her website design was praised by many as both a visually pleasing design and for its ease in navigation. We raised more from this event than we had ever imagined, and I give a large part of its success to Roberta’s contributions. She is a highly committed, hard-working, conscientious individual who rose to all the challenges with a level of professionalism and thoroughness that assured the resulting success. I therefore have no reservations in highly recommending Roberta Hoffman.” – May 2015

 

Calvin Thomas

Producer/Promoter at Prodigal Altar Boy Films

“I’ve been working with Roberta since 2012 and her work has allowed me to take my latest documentary, “The Trouble with TQ,” to the next level. I initially hired her to design the logo for my company, Prodigal Altar Boy Films, and that branched out into business card and letterhead design, all the way to designing the next poster for the film. Her graphic artwork in displaying archival documents in the film is an integral part of the film’s visual style and a foundational storytelling tool of the work. “

Roberta’s creative process draws the client into exploring “outside the box” design elements that resonate with the underlying story. A recurring comment at a recent screening was how her work on the archival documents highlighted the thematic thrust of the documents while preserving their authenticity.

I am currently working with Roberta on designing the DVD covers for the film.” – August 2013

 

Carl Young

Board Member of the Historic Mount Royal Terrace Association

“Roberta, your artwork really made a difference for our annual Home and Garden Tour.  The posters that you designed with our input were very imaginative and spot-on.  We have never had so many compliments on our materials.  And we had not previously considered that we could use our posters to generate sales of their own, but so many people have asked to buy copies!  Let me add that your patience and professionalism were key to making the design process work with our disparate committee.  I certainly hope to work with you again.” – December 2014

Peter Pryputniewicz

Art Director at Bently Enterprises

“Roberta was the team lead on my first project at C-bridge, and on several others during my time there. I immediately found her to be a creative, resourceful, adaptable, and energetic leader. She coached me in effective methods of rapid prototyping, graphic design and user centered design techniques. She has the ability to quickly grasp the unique needs of the client organization and turn this intelligence into concise design approaches, without wasting any effort or time. She effectively managed client relationships and her team simultaneously, combining a seriousness about the work with a great sense of fun and enjoyment in collaboration. Anyone who entrusts Roberta with their projects is in very good hands. I was grateful to be exposed to her example early in my career, and many years later I count her among my mentors.” – November 2012
