“1st Fish Designs does awesome creative work. A wedding memory book was design by Mallissa for my daughter and her husband. It was simple, tasteful, but yet had all these memories built into it. By simple I mean that the pages were not crowded with too many pictures and text. It was just right. The font was easy to read, and the picture layout different on each page. With the mix of pictures and text, it brought me right back to the day of their wedding—and tears to my eyes as it was such a beautiful day for them. I don’t see how anyone could go wrong by having 1st Fish Designs do work for them.”

“Working with Mallissa at 1st Fish Designs in publishing my Memoir was truly a rewarding experience! She took my scattered journal entries, some photos, and essays and helped me put it all together in a beautiful little book that tells the story of my first 3o years.

Mallissa was very intuitive in her editing, using words that made sense of it all. Her suggestions brought the book alive. I could not be happier with the finished results! Thanks, Mallissa!

Now I need to get to work on a sequel!”

“I recently worked with Mallissa on a design project and she was awesome! I had a pretty good idea what I wanted but once she started making suggestions for the font and the wording of things it totally opened up a whole new batch of ideas for me! I felt like she could read my mind! She knew exactly what I wanted (even though I’m quite indecisive) she just jumped in and took charge! I was very impressed!”

“Mallissa helped our company finalize the graphic design for our new logo and letterhead. So much for trying to do things on our own. 🙁 We had made a mess of things. Mallissa jumped in and cleaned things up for us. She did a great job and was super easy to work with. She listened to the changes that we needed and made them quickly and efficiently. She also made great suggestions on the creative end to make things work better for us and to increase the quality of our design. I can’t wait to work with her again.”
