I dig deeply into various aspects of design, product, and development to keep my skill set broad and sharp. I keep track and record the decisions that lead to success until they become second nature and automatic. Here are highlights of work from recent years.

Larry Wong

Entrepreneur

VP Sales & Marketing

As a Recruiter I have seen literally thousands of online design portfolio's - only to be sadly dissappointed. Each of my clients have one thing in common when it comes to hiring. That is....they all want the best. Unfortunately, I can only count with less than 5 fingers how many great web designers I've found and represented in my career. And, Lisa is one of the best Designers in town! She's a great listener, a consummate professional, and her portfolio bespeak a high level of experience and expertise. The bottom line, she's a "slam dunk." I am happy to give her my highest recommendation.

Snackable Media

Lisa is an exceptional art director and senior interactive designer. Her contribution was key to several of our most successful products and websites. Lisa can take any concept and translate it into great design but she excels in making great concepts even better once she starts working on them. I highly recommend Lisa for any company or individual that’s looking for an art director with an entrepreneurial vision and at the same time a great team player.

Glenn Gabe

CEO

G-Squared Interactive

Lisa Chin has been assisting my development team for over a year and I couldn’t be happier with her work, professionalism, and attention to detail. I’ve had dozens of freelancers work on our interactive projects over the past 10 years and most don’t live up to their billing. They are either too slow, too creative for their own good, too expensive, or lack worth ethic. Lisa is the complete opposite of what I just explained… She works fast, is super-creative, and follows direction extremely well. Lisa uses her natural skill and talent to design business-focused creative that rivals big-time agency work. So please, don’t hire her too often so we can!

As a business owner swamped with the countless details and challenges that every day presents, Lisa Chin is a Godsend. Her ability to translate my advertising and marketing ideas into beautiful designs is unparalleled. In fact, her extraordinary level of professionalism and creativity has allowed my small firm to compete with billion dollar companies who i'm sure have gigantic design budgets. She's such a delight to work with that i hesitate to even write this testimonial knowing that when you hire her she'll have less time for me!

Lisa did a great job of getting our website launched. As you may know, the ability to rightly understanding one's imagination of anything and converting that understanding into a viable service or product make one stand out from the rest. Lisa did that for us in help developing our website and launching it in a matter of few days! Lisa know how the end users act, behave and process content that is available to them on the net in formulating their buying decisions. I recommend Lisa for her web marketing skills.

Product Manager

Snap Interactive

Not only is Lisa a knowledgeable designer with an impressive range of styles and abilities, she also brings some serious marketing savvy and team leadership to the table. I had the pleasure of working with Lisa to completely re-brand "Are You Interested's" image and could not have done so without her understanding of branding and marketing paired with her up-front, tell-it-like-it-is manner. She can work quickly and always seems to have 20 things on her plate...and getting done. On top of all this, Lisa is one of those glue people every team needs to give it a sense of identity and larger purpose. She is the one that gets people out of the office for lunch, or staying in touch over time. She can bring very different personalities together in a way that makes the office a better place to be. I hope I have the chance to work with her again.

A multi-facetted, multidisciplinary art director, I've never seen an assignment where Lisa doesn't bring strong and original conceptual thinking to the table. A team member in the truest sense of the word, not only is Lisa an incredible creative collaborator, but her positive attitude and sense of humor make her a blast to work with. She'd be an asset to any agency.
