Lisa is amazing to work with, from design to implementation, she has ideas that match the vision I had for my website in my mind. She is always quick to respond and helpful with any questions I may have (which were a lot—she was always patient and considerate!).
She was able to create my vision and then some, and help shape the new look of my non profit’s site. She was always thinking of the best, smartest, and best looking ways to accomplish any goal! Lisa is truly amazing—great design and smart implementation! I would recommend anyone to reach out to Lisa to help them transform their site from ok to amazing!
Lisa was great to work with. In helping with a website rebuild, she listened to my needs, asked the right questions and stayed in communication giving me updates, options and feedback as we went. I highly recommend Gizmo Creative Factory.

“Smart, Talented and Focused on Results – Lisa is a great creative partner to helm any assignment. She enjoys the partnership with clients and other project mates, and that makes every goal that much more fun to attain.”
“For several years I have trusted Lisa for the development and repair of our company’s website, which is the bedrock of our operations.
Whenever there is glitch, whenever I have a question, Lisa is always quick to respond and find a solution. And she always seeks a cost-effective, long term solution. Thank you from our team!”
“Lisa is a consummate professional with a high level of digital design expertise to match. She’s that rare person who delivers ample amounts of creative “wow” but balances it with the no nonsense pragmatism of “lets get down to business.” I found her to be a joy to work with and an endless source of knowledge as we worked on a redesign of my website. I highly recommend Lisa!”

“As a psychotherapist with very specific areas of specialty, I noticed an immediate change in prospective client calls after Lisa redesigned my website. Suddenly I was attracting exactly the clients I wanted — people for whom my area of expertise makes a huge difference. Clients were approaching me by saying, “I saw your website and I think you’re the right fit” — something that had never happened before. I now love the way my website looks and what it conveys about me. Thanks Lisa!”
Lisa created our logo for our firm. She listened to our input and created a design that we all embraced. We appreciated her clear guidance throughout the process.

“Lisa is one of the few designers I’ve worked with who can create imagery that integrate the client’s, often times fuzzy, concepts into compelling visual presentations that help drive a resonating message to the target audience. Also, her understanding of social media and its relation to the overall marketing effort enables her to tailor her work for an end result that positions the message ‘top of mind’. I recommend her for any project that requires top tier graphic design and implementation.”
