“Svetlana is a wonderful talent with a blend of aesthetic and practical application. She has a tremendous design aesthetic that is strong and pure. Her design talents are only exceeded by her ability to deliver every project on time. Whenever Svetlana asks a question, it is well thought out and structured so as to provoke a deep and thoughtful response from the responder. She is an extremely intelligent person. She was a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a talented design professional.”

“While working at the Classic Group, I had the good fortune of hiring Svetlana as a designer/drafter. She possesses a wonderful eye for design and layout and her graphic abilities are fabulous. She is comfortable in a variety of media; drafting, web design, hand drawing, model making and brochure page layout to name just a few. Added to that, she is a hard worker and understands deadlines and does what she needs to in order to meet them, all while keeping calm and composed. She works equally well individually or in a team and would be a great asset to any design oriented business. I would love to have the opportunity to hire her again, she’s a pleasure to work with.”

“Svetlana possesses a keen and inquisitive mind. She was quick to perceive the problems in the assignments given to her and would offer alternate solutions without being bogged down. When assigned a task, she would do more than was asked and move the project forward in a positive way. She displays a strong work ethic, an eagerness to learn about the profession and a willingness to dive into any task assigned. Two things that set her apart in my mind from many of her peers are first, a willingness to ask intelligent pertinent questions when she doesn't understand something rather than flailing about, and second, genuine finesse at hand drafting and superb model making skills which enhance her deep grasp of various computer programs. When I worked with her, she had a lot to learn, but made great progress in a short period of time. Properly mentored, she will be a profound talent.”
