“Koch CREATIVE. The name says it best. CREATIVE. I was looking for a graphic artist that ‘colored outside the lines.’ I found that quality in Jill. She understood my vision and what I was looking for to represent villagevision. She understood ‘quirky.’ From the font, to the stick girls, to the ink color and to the paper quality – Jill took every detail and provided me with exactly what I wanted. Jill was a joy to work with – literally – I have never seen her without a sparkle in her eye or without a smile on her face. If you are looking for professionalism, creativity and my favorites – hip and quirky – look no further. Koch Creative is the best!”

—Connie Cominsky, Founder, villagevision

She has a remarkable touch with clients, working with them to fully understand their needs—and to help them clarify what they are looking for as well. Jill has an extremely strong ethical grounding that is reflected in all her dealings with clients and partners. I'm looking forward to working with Jill on future projects.”

—Nicki Snoblin, Owner at NextWord Communications

“When I was Director of Development for the New York City Ballet, Jill worked for me from afar, setting up our donor materials and brochures, and working with writers from the New York Times in creating our donor newsletter. One of my sorrows when I left for the Museum of Modern Art was that I couldn’t take her with me, as we had an in-house design department. Jill has a knack for creative problem-solving, and a partnership-oriented work ethic that sets her apart from her competition. Whether it is brainstorming through a challenge or creating a message that precisely hits its target, Jill works as a true colleague and sees each project through to its successful completion. Her ability to home in on, and then deliver, a message, are remarkable and make her a truly valuable creative partner.”
