I thank heaven that Lisa came into my life! We've worked together for 12 years and throughout that time she has been a godsend. Her speed, accuracy, attention to detail and inventiveness coupled with her strong design sense mean that every job is completed to an exceptional standard. She's hugely flexible, quick to understand and always willing to discuss direction. These talents alongside her adaptability and grasp of all areas of production make her my first call for a huge variety of projects.

Incredibly quick, incredibly creative, incredibly resourceful and incredibly nice,
Lisa is a dream of a designer. I have worked with her on projects that simply could
not have existed without her speed and imagination. She doesn't just design pages
quickly, she designs imaginative, right-first-time pages quickly – even if she has uninspiring material to work with. An absolute gem.
SARAH BAXTER, EDITOR & WRITER
An exceptional designer and a joy to work with – fast, creative, flexible and full of ideas.
I can't count the number of silk purses she's made from the sow's ears I've provided, using her imagination and flair to conjure sparky articles from even the poorest images and most leaden copy. She's not just a safe pair of hands – though she certainly is that – but a designer guaranteed to transform your magazine, whether designing individual features or entire newsstand or customer projects.
PAUL BLOOMFIELD, EDITOR & WRITER
Lisa Duke is superhuman! I never imagined finding a designer who could churn through work so quickly and efficiently, and to such a high standard. She always understands what we want, adds value and creates creative, world-class layouts first time, every time. A joy to work with: no fuss, no complaining, never stops working, swapping between multiple publications without breaking stride. Cannot recommend her highly enough.
