Industry Experience


  • Tressie has been one of the most creative individuals I have had the opportunity to work with. I worked with Tressie at Petz Ent. Inc., for roughly four years and we had the opportunity to work together on an array of projects. She is extremely organized, detailed, and very passionate about her work. She understands the design process and is very systematic with her approach to new projects. I highly recommend her as a person for any employer interested in adding her to their team.

  • Talented, creative and dedicated - all the qualities you look for in a strong hire but most of the times are hard to find. She served as a lead graphic/web design and was a key contributor to everything creative from new application UX designs, Asp.net HTML page coding, logo/icon creation and marketing collateral design. She stays fresh with new trends and was instrumental in helping us launch our social media marketing initiatives way before social media became a trend. I highly recommend Tressie. She will be an invaluable asset to any creative company or project looking to go to the next level.

  • The service that you provide is thorough and intuitive regarding how the person who views my website will react to the information that they see. Your designs are beautiful, classy, and creative. Your work reflects what I hope people will see in my work as a creative performing artist.

  • Pam and I loved your work. You have a very fresh and youthful feel which was exactly what we were looking for. We especially loved the personalized attention we got as your customer. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking for great designs, professional service, and a quick turn around time.

  • Tressie is both a listener and a doer, most people are either one or the other. Her patience and care in capturing the vision I sought to cast was critical to the success of our project’s aims. I was pleased with both her professionalism, despite our friendship, and her willingness to go the extra mile.

  • I would highly recommend Tressie for any type of web design because of her dedication to your project, as well as her attention to detail. There is no time limit because she is results-oriented, starts a job, and continues until it’s complete.

  • I would highly recommend Tressie Design for all of your business needs. Her personality and friendliness makes it easy to explain my needs and I have never had any problems getting my needs met while working with Tressie. She listens to my ideas and also incorporates her own within reason. I have made use of all her suggested ideas which made me realize that for her, this is not just a business deal but she also looks out for the well-being of her clients and seeks to deliver a quality that is hard to match.

  • When we did the first National Freedom in Christ Conference we concluded that we would definitely have to secure Tressie’s help with our second conference scheduled for this year. Her work brought the quality of brilliance to our electronic communications in every way. We received inquiries about the person who did our graphics. I was so proud to tell them that Tressie Design was the creative force behind the designs that made our event look so compelling.
