Nice People Say Nice Things

Karen Lano

Senior Graphic Designer / Manager at Upward Sports

I have worked closely with Carla for several years and she is wonderful! Not only an amazing human, but a skilled designer. Easy going and extremely adaptable to anything thrown her way, she has been a joy to work with across all mediums and brings a keen eye to every project and a creative and curious mindset to every interaction - whether it's one-on-one or working seamlessly with a large team. Nothing ruffles her feathers and she is passionate about all things design and branding. Her attention to detail and ability to take a project, ask the right questions, and run with it has made my job so much easier. I highly recommend her - she would be a huge asset to any organization.

Owner and Toy & Game Designer at The Good Game Co.

I had the fortunate opportunity of serendipitously meeting Carla. As we shared about ourselves I learned from her what she did as a career. I can honestly say I am blessed to now have her as my "go-to" Graphic Designer. She is amazingly talented, but, what makes her stand out even more is the fact that she is so very enjoyable to work with.

I have had the pleasure of working with Carla and can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is a top-notch designer! Very pleasant to work with, she always produces accurate, detail-refined work in a time frame that meets deadline and leaves room for revisions and finalization of files. Once work has been completed, she delivers files where asked with all requested formatting, versions, etc. – organized in a manner that fits perfectly into our creative department’s digital infrastructure. I look forward to more work with her in the future.

I loved getting to work with Carla!! It was always so wonderful to be able to hand a project to Carla and know it would be done correctly and on time. She works with accuracy and attention to detail always and I would highly recommend her for any project you have!

Christine Miller

Owner and Designer at Great Oak Circle

I've worked in partnership with Carla several times to create logos/websites together. He ability to connect with a client and solve a problem is second to none. She doesn't just turn out 300 drafts of various logos that overwhelm clients, she solves a problem and delivers the perfect logo. She does this while showing her work in a way that leads the client through the creative process and has them amazed at the end result. Thanks for being so great to all our branding client needs!

Eric Hargraves

Senior Director: Procurement  & Compliance at OOBE Apparel Design Group

Carla is an exceptional talent, and carries herself with the utmost professionalism. She is a multi-talented artist with a tremendous amount of value. She not only understands the business of design, but also the joy in getting an individual to pause long enough to revel in the wonder of what is being visually communicated. She will not only lift your organization or project with her tangible output, but, if allowed, she will lift your team, your emotions, and the simple humanity of your relationships.

Dipali Patel

Author, Business Owner, and Business Development Manager at Upward Sports

I worked with Carla at Upward Sports for many years. I enjoyed working alongside her. She has a great personality and is very positive. There were times when I didn't know what I wanted and Carla displayed the talent to present appropriate and workable ideas that turned out fabulous. There were also times, I knew exactly what I wanted and she showed patience in taking those details and creating exactly what I was asking for. Any project you bring to Carla will be handled professionally, and with top-notch creativity.

David Peebles

Director of Public Relations at Homes of Hope

Carla is the most talented Graphic Designer I've ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and possesses a wonderful positive attitude. She meets deadlines and is very attentive to client's requests. I highly recommend Carla Carter!

Pamela Westbrooks

Vice President of Administration, CPA

I used Carla to help design a business concept logo. I wasn't sure where to start, but she was! She asked the right questions, not about the logo... but about who the customer will be, the experience we are trying to create, and the feelings we want them to have when interacting with the company. From there, we discussed imagery, but not until she understood the organization and what we are trying to accomplish. Carla was strategic in design; professional in delivery; and finished product was more than expected. Great to work with, would definitely use her again!

Travis Vaughn

Director of Market Research, Product Development, and Marketing at Upward Sports

Carla is great to work with. She's very professional, does great creative work, can take edits and revisions and wants to make sure that the final product was what the original was requesting, and is ultimately just someone I loved working with. I have recommended her to others many times and will continue to do so. I have worked with her directly at Upward, and have used her with our own business as well.

Anita Barrett Ward

Retired Account Executive at Keys Innovative Solutions

I have known this awesome artist/designer for more than 15 years! Over the years she has proven to be a committed and extremely trustworthy designer/artist for me and many of my friends. Carla's knowledge and experience have allowed her to develop relationships that truly transcend business. Her work has helped all of her clients to succeed in getting "the look" they desired. Carla has many years of success and many very pleased clients! The spirit though which Carla serves her customers is exemplary indeed. Her faith guides her, and her work is filled with integrity. Hire her! You won't be disappointed!

Maria Maddin

Director of Leadership Giving and Donor Networks at United Way of the Piedmont

Carla is by far one of my most favorite graphic artist that I have ever had the pleasure of working with in my 20 years of marketing experience. She is a great listener and implementer. She is extremely creative while at the same time able to turn projects around in an extremely timely manner. Add to that a sparkling personality that never took any feedback I had on a design personally... that I have come to find out is very rare. I highly recommend her and her talents to anyone looking for some creative design work.
