  • Bridget has consistently been able to provide our organization with deep technical expertise and execution, on-time delivery, and a proactive attitude. She’s very responsible, reliable, and able to manage the varied and numerous tasks we throw her way. When our staff is overloaded with various projects and deadlines, I never hesitate to contact Bridget for help — no matter how small or large the project. She demonstrates a strong command of design principles and is always proactive in recommending process changes that would benefit our organization — even after she has completed the project. Bridget’s someone I will certainly turn to again.

    —BethAnn Romeo, Capital One

    —Joey Porterfield, Plow & Hearth

  • Bridget worked with our email team and created new and energized designs for email campaigns. Her sparkling personality and profound knowledge of design was the perfect synergy we need to infuse the project with a fresh perspective. Besides being able to create flawless graphics and classic typography, her command over a project and ownership of the process was a real bonus. Her excellent communication skills helped move projects along, and her professional attitude underscored her expertise.

    —Archie Miller, Crutchfield

  • As we began our company rebranding effort, we quickly realized it was necessary to bring an experienced and talented designer in house. When Bridget came into the office, I immediately knew she was exactly that. I quickly learned that in addition to having a fantastic eye for design, she is incredibly efficient and dependable. … She is able to work well on multiple, simultaneous projects and, perhaps more importantly, is able to deliver final products that meet—or usually surpass—the varying expectations of the members of the management team.

    —Evie Chamberlain, The Great Courses

  • Thanks so much for your help with the HTML email project. We surely would have missed a deadline if it weren’t for you!

    —Heather Wrenn, Aquent

  • The Ratings and Reviews email campaign Fresh Picked Design created for Crutchfield was named as “a perfect example” of why ecommerce analyst and blogger Linda Bustos loves Crutchfield’s marketing. Incorporating ratings and reviews is “an effective and underused tactic for retail email,” Bustos writes, noting that this tactic helps persuade impulse buyers and cautious consumers alike. “All-in-all, Crutchfield’s is an excellent example of selling to different types of shoppers in one email, without cluttering the creative.

  • I want to thank you for providing such efficient quality work. I’m so grateful to have you accessible and eager. … I truly appreciate your professional, friendly and cooperative approach and will continue to call on you often.

  • One email Fresh Picked Design executed for Crutchfield won accolades from Chad White of the Retail Email Blog. White praised the crisp, intuitive design of this email, which was sent to customers who had recently been browsing Blu-ray players. He called it a “solid triggered message” for its inclusion of a wide range of shopping triggers and informative resources.

  • By acting quickly, Fresh Picked Design saved Capital One $50,000 on this rewards catalog project. A looming postal rate increase threatened to increase mailing costs if the print deadline were missed. Obstacles kept popping up: incorrect images from the stock photography provider, outdated logos, discontinued merchandise and last-minute changes to the fine print.

    Capital One brought in Fresh Picked Design to ensure the catalog project would be completed on time. By posting multiple advance proofs for reviewers, working late evenings to update the production proof, and collaborating with the photography vendor and the pre-press facility, we sent the catalog to the printer error-free and on time — saving the company $50,000.

  • Black Friday is the most important – and the most competitive — time for retailers. Frustrated by the piecemeal execution of the previous year’s campaign, Circuit City’s online marketing team asked Fresh Picked Design to redesign these crucial Black Friday emails.

    The campaign outperformed expectations, boosting holiday sales by 40%. As a direct result of fresh creative execution, the email coupon drove 45% more visits than the prior year. The company finished the week 164% to last year's visits and 140% to last year's sales. The email also won Marketing Sherpa’s Best Email Opt-In Campaign award.
