Chiara Aliotta – Winner 2017

I am continuously astounded by the outstanding design work that Chiara produces for our clients and the way her passion for design simply breathes life into brands.

Recently we have worked on some challenging projects both internally and for customers, and she never fails to deliver the goods. I have no doubt that Chiara’s input in refreshing our tender templates and preparing ways to explain in a visual language aspects of how we work, is fundamental in the increased conversion rate we are experiencing in national and international tenders, and hence driving a growth in our business generally.

Chiara has driven our migration to Sketch which has dramatically improved workflows in our design team, reduced overheads when packing files for development and allowed the team to focus more on the design, and less on the frustrating technology!

Last year we took the step of hiring another designer who would work directly under Chiara’s direction, and it has been wonderful to see how Betty’s confidence, skills and abilities are growing with Chiara’s persistent, friendly yet very clear guidance on how to excel as a designer in our industry.

Her professional approach, technical skills and willingness to explain her design decisions to clients in a way that they can both engage with and be inspired by means that pretty much every project only requires a first draft!
