“Jessica’s design work is top flight. She is professional, very tech-savvy and terrific at creating unique ads for clients with minimal direction. Jessica works hard to meet deadlines and that’s of critical importance in this business!”
“Jessica has been a great extension to our marketing department. I appreciate her ability to not only listen and create my vision when requested, but also offer creative new ideas for our advertising campaigns and print materials.”
“Jessica is so easy to work with. When developing an ad I suggest a few ideas and from that she is able to create exactly what I’m looking for. Jessica has designed a variety of vibrant marketing pieces for Brucemore. These pieces have increased positive awareness of Brucemore throughout the community. Jessica is a reliable designer who produces quality, creative work. I have always been happy with the pieces she designs and will continue using her as a designer for future projects.”
“We’ve had Jessica Mundt of Starr Design work on several different projects. From direct mail pieces and newsletters to corporate identity programs, Jessica is always able to provide quality creative services with an exceptional turnaround. Whatever the task, Starr Design can provide you with an innovative solution.”
“We have utilized Jessica’s talents on more than one occasion. She’s a terrific go-to designer who can create a wide variety of work with very little input or direction. She’s a knowledgeable, very creative, and intuitive designer.”
“We have really enjoyed working with Jessica. She is able to pick up on our client’s style quickly in creating newsletters, ads, and postcards. She has the creativity to design a whole new piece or to make edits to existing art files (which isn’t always easy!). She is available when we need her and can turn around a project in a timely manner. She is a great resource for us to meet the needs of our clients.”
“Starr Design provides me with a marketing edge with prompt, professionally designed materials such as flyers, brochures, etc. Clients are impressed with the quality and how quickly my materials are available and allow me to be successful in a very competitive real estate market. Starr Design is always my first and only choice for marketing and graphic design!!”
“Jessica provided three coordinated pieces for a scholarship program alumni reunion – a save the date card, informational/registration brochure, and a retrospective booklet. She was given only general recommendations on size, but no design suggestions at all. She produced coordinated pieces that were visually appealing and accomplished the goals for each piece. She was professional and patient throughout the editing and proofing process.”
“Jessica has been a pleasure to work with over the course of the past year. I found her exceptional skills while one day browsing through the Etsy website. I sent her an email describing my wishes and through solely using email correspondence, Jessica created a fun and fresh representing new logo. In addition, she also redesigned my business card, designed earring card displays, and display hang tags for my jewelry. Throughout the whole process, Jessica was patient and very personable. The customer experience I received was impeccable. She had the ability to take my vision and create exactly what I had in mind; that in it self is amazing. She is a true artist and takes the time to understand her clientele. Superb work Jessica. Thank you once again!”
“Jessica is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is she detail-oriented, her clean, fresh and fun approach to design is consistently executed flawlessly. I am always giddy when I open up a package from Starr Design because I know it is going to be amazing down to every last detail.”
“I have worked with Jessica and Starr Design for 3 years now. She collaborated with me to design a logo for my business that was better than I imagined! Jessica is also always prompt and professional when I ask for a new or revised ad, poster, etc. I would highly recommend Starr Design!”
“Jessica is a pleasure to work with! I have been fortunate enough to have her work on several projects for me. Even when I’m not quite sure exactly what I’m looking for, Jessica always comes through with something that totally blows me away and fits my personality and aesthetic to a tee. She is an amazing designer, incredibly personable, and I have been more than satisfied with her amazing results. I look forward to working with her in the future.”
“Jessica agreed to work pro-bono for the American Heart Association Gala committee. This is the first indication of her work ethic; genuine. Although we gave Jessica an idea of our vision, she listened, took notes and ultimately created the most captivating artwork that was a perfect fit for our event. She takes great pride in her work, remains on schedule and is the easiest person to communicate with via e-mail. This is vitally important; conveying a need or a change or an idea in words can be a challenge. Jessica handles it all with finesse, and a true understanding of what (the customer) is really looking for. You can tell she stops to think about what you are asking and then brings it to life! The best part is when you meet her in person; Jessica’s natural effervescence is that which transcends into her artwork. We are most fortunate to have Jessica on our team! I would highly recommend Jessica Mundt for a diverse scope of projects and challenges. She is professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with.”
“I have worked with Jessica on several projects over the last few years and I have never been disappointed. She is able to take my thoughts on what I want and transform them to reality in a very creative way. Not only is she creative but Jessica also delivers her work on time and in a quality manner. I would highly recommend her. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.”
“Jessica has helped me out so many times in so many ways. Being in the real estate business I never know when I’m going to need professional pictures, layouts, or booklets. In the two years I’ve worked with her she has always been willing and ready to produce what I need in a very short time frame. Jessica is very talented, professional, extremely creative, and a delight to work with. My clients have always been impressed with her work.”
“Jessica creates unique and vibrant graphics which are sure to please. She took my ideas and transformed them into beautiful works of art which effectively communicate the spirit of my business. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!”
“Jessica made wonderful custom envelope stickers and gift tags for our greeting card business. Her designs reflected exactly what we were looking for. Her finished products are high quality and definitely help with our overall packaging strategy. We definitely recommend her services. Thanks Jessica!”
“I just wanted to say THANK YOU so very much for the ad. It is FANTASTIC!!! I could not have asked for a better job. And you did this in such a short time as well.

You gave me so much to choose from, as well as taking my input and letting me see how the different logos would look with the changes I wanted. It was difficult deciding, but I’m so happy with what I decided on! It is perfect to use for all of my businesses – and I really wanted something that was interchangeable, whether it was for my greeting card designs or my accounting and consulting business. You do great work! I also really LOVE the business cards you designed with my new logo! They are striking and eye catching!”
