Mina Stojanovic for Job #179154 Kokako It was wonderful to work with Vanessa. She was enthousiast and we got the feeling she really cared about the project and asked questions to improve sentences. We gave her a little free space to experiment with a couple lines and she gave us multiple great versions.
We really recommend working with Vanessa, she’s very professional and it’s nice to have worked with her!
