Whitly exemplifies PROFESSIONALISM! She is precise, honest and has GREAT communication skills. My first artwork from Whitly was designed almost 6 years ago. Though I was very much satisfied then, I have seen tremendous growth in her work skill and business ethic over the past few years, which made it very easy in making her the official graphic artist for my two businesses. At times when I’m not sure what I want, I pitch my ideas and she knows exactly how to bring it to life. An important factor in business, is knowing your clientele and she proves her awareness to what I like every single time we work together! Working with Whitly has been a great experience and as long as I have her on my team, I’m always sure that my last worry would ever be bringing my ideas to life graphically.
Right after deciding I was ready to launch my pressed flower art business, Peace Petals, in 2016, I knew I wanted Whitly Charles to design my business logo. From the pretty cursive font, to the cute flower images, to the circular-shaped flow, I love every bit of my Peace Petals logo designed by Whitly! Because I was so pleased with Whitly’s work on my business logo, I requested she design my business cards and stickers as well. I’ve been completely happy with each item Whitly has designed and feel that they capture the essence of my art. I also appreciated that, for each of these projects, Whitly asked me to provide my own vision, if I had ideas, and was sure to include elements of my vision within the designs, while offering her honest feedback, incredible professional and creative touch, and her expertise. The whole process as Whitly’s client was seamless and enjoyable, and I will definitely be reaching out for future design needs.

Due to our long-standing relationship, Whitly has been a true asset to me for the conceptual development and design of communication materials – digital and print – for the last three years in my current role at Eastern Star Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was a no-brainer to hire Whitly as a design contractor to fulfill my organization’s graphic design needs, as she is a strong, innovative leader who works proactively to support the requests she receives. Even in distance, she has been able to juggle multiple projects at once, occasionally on tight deadlines, while also providing sound logic and reason behind her concepts and recommendations, aligning with basic design principles and best practices. Her expertise has efficiently aided our Communications team substantially and guided the management of our visual brand and our communication efforts to our specified audiences successfully. She is more than a pleasure to work with as she always turns projects around in a timely fashion, asks questions when clarification is needed, and produces visual compositions that are cohesive in look, brand, and quality.
