"I am thrilled with my experience with Jazz Palette. I have been in business for 28 years and wanted to rebrand my company. Gail Marten took our old website and turned it into a fresh updated contemporary design. She has the gift of an artist's eye and the skill of a technical writer. She also made all the signs for our spa and added a video to our site. As a busy owner, it is so wonderful to have all my marketing projects under one roof!  Thank you Gail!"
– Jamie Bright, Brightwater Spa

"I have worked with Gail Marten for several years as project manager on a variety of graphic design projects for my organization, including a new logo, a brochure, and a booklet, with overall attention to creating standardized branding for all our materials‹we plan to continue to work with her to update our website and Facebook page. In all cases we have collaborated very closely to successfully design, edit and proof multiple iterations of each project until we were both satisfied with the final result. Gail is unfailingly polite and professional, and her response time is phenomenal. I would recommend her without reservation."
