Sweet Talk

Working with Emily through the years has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure. She has consistently exceeded our expectations, and even with little direction from our team, she brings a clear vision to life. Emily is responsive, time and time again delivering a creative product under the budgeted time and – though seldom – any edits we have are made immediately with no extended delays.

In short, Emily Traviesa has been everything our firm needs and more. She is an expert in her craft and a consummate professional. When we have a plan in mind, she executes perfectly–and when we need creative guidance, she leads us exactly where we need to go. For graphic design and branding services, we will look nowhere else but to Emily and Citrus Branding.

I first worked with Emily when she was the Creative Director for PDQ, and I immediately hired her once she returned to freelance work in 2018. We were opening several new Glory Days Grills that year, and I needed a reliable art director to take us to the next level in social media and promotional campaigns. No matter what the project is: her designs are flawless, her work ethic is incomparable, and her marketing strategies always render a return on investment. 

My favorite part about working with Emily is she needs little direction to deliver high-level work – a rare trait in art directors. I rely heavily on her to develop all of our promotional assets from social media content to seasonal menu design, from billboards to influencer events. She is a valued member of our marketing team, and I look forward to many more years growing successful food industry brands with her by my side.

Emily is a hard worker, extremely talented and a delight to work with on any project.  What I appreciated about her the most was her ability to think high-level conceptually yet still execute great design on a detailed basis. She’s a great team player and has an easy demeanor that makes her a solid partner you can lean on when things get busy and unruly as business sometimes does.  I’d work with her again anytime.

Working with Emily is a joy. She takes half-baked ideas and direction and comes back with creative designs that speak to the audience and capture the key messages exactly! She is highly skilled, trustworthy, and always delivers –each and every time. I rely on her consistently and she’s never let me down.
