About
 
Tina wanted a hip, chic, smart, modern, whimsical, and polished site. She came to me with a fabulous logo she designed herself and a specific color scheme. She contributed during the design process by adding the custom stamp to the old vintage postcard, the envelope in the navigation, as well as a clear vivid outpouring of ideas.
 
 
Tina launched her site in September 2006, and landed a feature in O, The Oprah Magazine that hit stands February 2007.  Notepolish is featured as the online resource in the listing for a Tori Higa Men's Greeting Card. The feature is in print, the February 2007 edition, and online. see the feature here.

How can I ever thank you enough for the tremendous amount of work you put forth on designing my site and staying at it until it could be called “perfection”. You have the talent of a top notch illustrator, and also the resources and knowledge base of a brilliant webmaster. I am a self proclaimed perfectionist and often have expectations that can’t be met. I searched high and low for a web designer and after waiting many months with anxiety, I can’t even begin to tell you how impressed I was when I realized that I had finally met my match! Your work ethic is second to none, and you remain committed to anything and everything until it is achieved. I was surprised to wake up many mornings to the emails that you had left late in the night and am still amazed at how you answer all my questions within minutes! 
 
With all of your many astute business qualities, also comes an endless supply of patience.   I have been confused and very overwhelmed at times, especially as I started to learn that building a web based business (just as you warned) is not for the faint of heart. You were right by my side being the ultimate cheerleader at each and every obstacle. 
 
Your talent as a designer truly speaks for itself.   What I thought I knew of your talents was not only confirmed, but also turned to utter admiration and many speechless moments as you began to unveil your illustrations. You took a few ideas and a color palette and turned it into something so amazing.   I just could not get enough of it!   I have said many times, if I had the financial means, I would hire you to do an illustration each day for me! 
 
In summary, I am thrilled and honored to have had the opportunity to work with you. You have designed a website that I am eternally proud of and I truly look forward to working with you in the future! 
 
Thanks a million, Cathy!
