I’ve been blessed to have worked with some great people, and seeing their businesses grow over time has been personally rewarding for me. My clients can rely on me to create quality work, meet deadlines, share outside-experience and connect with me easily — a level of trust has been developed along the way. I can be as involved in their design/marketing process as they’d like me to be. And we have a little fun along the way too!

Jill invested in understanding my story, business, and product to develop a brand identity that is a true expression of who we are. What made working with Jill so much fun was the collaboration of ideas and desires. Through our conversations, I was able to see my ideas and thoughts come to life!

One of the things that I like best about working with Luckythirteen Design is that Jill’s work is always efficient, and the hours billed for are well worth the money. Another thing that sets Jill apart from other designers I have worked with is that she always focuses on the finished product and any print parameters, specs or limitations, right from the start of a project. In the past, with other designers I would end up having to fix or revise things, whereas Jill always offers to work directly with our suppliers and printers and see it through to the finished product.

Jill makes the design process easy. She goes above and beyond with presentation, creativity, and service. She’s quick to listen and incorporate feedback, yet always ready with new ideas and options to get to the best end goal. I am always impressed by her turnaround time and precision. It’s not everyday that you find a person with amazing talent, great project management, and a service personality, but Jill is just that!

University of Northern Iowa Center for Business Growth and Innovation


From Day 1, Jill has been nothing but amazing. She is professional, timely and her work is phenomenal. Although our line of work (photography) also requires creativity and an artistic eye, Jill has presented designs to us that we simply could and would not have come up with ourselves. Simply stated: it has been an absolute pleasure working with Jill and we can’t wait for what the future holds, both for her as well as for us as we continue working with her. If you need a designer, Jill is definitely your gal. Thank you!

Jill is on time with her projects. She guides the client with great ideas, yet if I had an idea she also incorporated what I wanted as well. Very professional and easy to work with.

I highly recommend Jill, at Luckythirteen Design for any made-from-scratch project. Her work is so clean, professional, up-to-date & superbly well done. I really appreciated her attention to detail, professional grade work, promptness, and friendliness. I knew Jill was the one to create our family’s dairy farm logo once I found out she grew up on on a dairy farm too – we had been searching and searching for ideas to bring the true identity of our farm to life and continued to come up empty-handed until I finally reached out to Jill. To me, she really did the impossible! She was able to incorporate everything we wanted into our logo design and got us on track with some ideas for continued growth in the area of our branding!

Jill was a joy to work with. She made the entire logo process go smoothly and quickly with her willingness to truly listen to our ideas, and her receptiveness to our suggestions for edits. She was receptive to ideas for change and cared about our logo, was also very good about returning emails and calls. I would recommend her to anyone!

I have used Jill’s freelance design services on a number of occasions. Each time I was impressed by Jill’s impeccable attention to detail, which resulted in very few edits needed. Jill’s creativity and designs are very modern, fresh, and clean. When a high profile piece of collateral is needed, I call on Jill’s expertise. She is a top-notch professional designer who is extremely organized and thorough.
