"Being very organized and methodical in solving problems effectively, Allyson's ability has served us well. She served as a core team player - working closely with the creative director, managing advertising campaigns, promotions, web design, re-branding for clients as well as creating creative presentations for our clients."
SANAA BELFEKIH
Teasdale worldwide, VP Malcolm Out Loud
"Ally was the lead designer on several of the agency’s accounts that I managed. Ally is a creative thinker who isn't afraid to push the often imposed creative boundaries to get the client to think about approaching their target in a new way. The clients like Ally very much and they are very pleased with her work and presentation. From a management supervision level, I find Ally to be professional, talented and a pleasure to work with.”
APRIL GILLMORE
CEO, Clickfirst Marketing
"As a result of her invaluable talent, Allyson Leggett's commitment to learn, and her high level of technical skill in the field of graphic design, she was able to swiftly move from Junior Graphic Designer to Assistant Art Director. Had she chosen to stay with us Ms. Leggett would have most likely been promoted to Art director. Ms. leggett was fully responsible for the complete concept, execution and graphics all the way to production of all projects entrusted in her. In addition, Ms. Leggett supervised the training of several degree student interns, including a young graduate from Boston in the last few months she worked with us. I can confidently recommend Ms. Leggett to any prospective employer as a highly qualified and skilled Graphic Designer, as well as a multi-talented creative, and a dedicated and personable team player. I wish her all the best in her career."
FRANCOIS BOURGOIN
DDB Bahrain, CEO/Creative Director
“Being faced with the task of branding your company is a large undertaking. Ally gave us a feeling of intimacy and understanding when it came to our project. Right from the start it was her goal to get inside our head and understand what AnswerFirst is, and how we wanted to be perceived. Ally went to work, only to come back with a fantastic set of designs. I was happy that she was able to wrap herself around, and understand our need for a brand identity that uniquely stands out and has a professional look. Our customers compliment the designs and website all the time. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Thank you, Ally."
