Jennifer Walker, Director of Hanson Gallery Carmel and Art First Live/Art Brokerage:
Susana McGuire has been an important part of my marketing team since 1998. Her expertise in both website and graphic design coupled with her excellent copywriting skills have resulted in more than one million dollars in annual Internet and direct sales.
Her team efficiently analyzes our needs and transforms them into successful print campaigns and lead generating web pages. Each month Susana collaborates with me and transforms my needs into stunning promotional pieces that bring in the sales.
Her unique proprietary Gallery Maker web software allows us to easily update our site. This self serve approach is a must for art galleries as new works come and go daily. Her unique Internet capability generates leads and sales internationally. Not only can our collectors browse our exhibitions online; she has set us up to attract customers regularly from Europe, Asia, Canada and across the United States.
McGuire Communication is responsible for all of my advertising, web designs, brochures and print material. Susana works efficiently and her projects are on time and affordable. It is as if I have full scale marketing department inhouse.
I highly recommend her services; her work is flawless.
Thomas Brick, NuStart Home Inspections:
Recently my company hired McGuire Communication to create a website. I have had other companies work for me in the past without success. Working with Susana McGuire Jewell’s company was very impressive. We worked as a team to develop my site. She had some great ideas.
When all was said and done, McGuire Communication Design created a site, which displayed my company with creativity and professionalism. She even helped to organize our photo shoot.
Susana was patient and thoughtful throughout the whole process. I would recommend McGuire Communication Design to anyone who wants to express their thoughts and their company in a professional manner on the Internet.

Jerry Stewart, Sports Writer:
After months of prodding by an associate, I decided to make a personal website which could be a forum for my work. Like many, I didn’t know exactly where to start and tried to design it myself, only to be left lost and confused. Another associate recommended Susana. So I met Susana and simply laid out the plans I had. A couple of weeks later, my vision became a reality. All thanks to Susana!
Thank you again, Susana. I could not have done it without you. Sincerely, Jerry Stewart
Rebecca Little, Owner of RJL Advertising:
Working with Susana from McGuire Communication has been an extremely easy and wonderful experience for me. I rely on her for all my graphic and website needs.
Susana is always there and is consistently on time with every project. My clients are always very happy with her work. She is the easiest person to work with and makes my job that much easier. I enjoy working with her always.
Susana can turn any hard task into the easiest task just by her disposition. I recommend her highly for anyone looking for a reliable, creative, easy going graphic and web designer. She’s simply the best!
Jane De Lay, Operations Manager, Cedar Properties
I thoroughly enjoy working with Susana McGuire from McGuire Communication. She is professional, responsive, creative, and exceptionally patient. I worked with Susana to develop a new logo for the company as well as develop a series of print advertisements and a website.
The design process is not always easy, and she seemed to read my mind, even when I couldn’t always articulate what I was looking for. We went back and forth on a number of ideas, yet she never became impatient. She always respected my ideas and worked to improve them, and she always really listened to me.
Another wonderful aspect about working with Susana is her timeliness. She is never late delivering the work. Better yet, she remains calm when the deadlines are looming!
I will always call her when I need a design project. I can count on her to not only be nice to work with, but also to deliver a quality design on time.
Conlon Keator, Decorative Painter
Pacific Grove, California
I was looking for a way to explain the sort of work I do in a concise, immediate way that people would remember when they saw my business cards… I thought of the adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. That is certainly the case in my profession as a decorative artist and faux finisher. I chose several photographs from my portfolio and wrote the usual information (name, number,etc.) as well as some of the specialized skills I offer. I sent all this to Susana via email.
In a very sort time I had received some really well designed samples to peruse. Susana had chosen the best photographs for the format, cropped them appropriately, and on the reverse, aesthetically arranged the text superimposed upon a sinuous flourish in half tone. It is the best looking card I have ever had and I get continuous compliments on both the cards and the design and execution of my work represented there in full color. People finally “get” what it is I do just from my card!
Thank you, Susana, you were great to work with and gave me exactly what I needed as a business tool… when I do a website I plan to do it with you.

Our first project with McGuire Communication had an impossible deadline. In spite of that, Susana met with us after hours and gave the project great personal attention. Thanks to Susana we made our deadline and received a design that was creative, eye-catching, and fit nicely with our company brand. It is a pleasure to continue working with her.

Susana’s Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative
It was a pleasure working with you on the Banners project for His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Rinpoche (Arjia Thubten Lobsang Rinpoche of The Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center) did not give me much time to accomplish the goal and you were really wonderful to respond so quickly.
It is rare to get all three of what a client wants which can often be quick, good and reasonably priced.
Thanks so much,
Owner, The Adin Group, LLC
I loved working with Susana a she provided graphic design solutions for one of my business clients. Susana provided elegant logo and label designs for my client’s line of essential oil gift products. Her work was creative and extraordinary all the while she delivered the work within record time! I was extremely impressed and will use her again with future clients!
Susana’s Top Qualities: Great Results, On Time, Creative
General Manager, Monterey Bay International Trade Association (MBITA)
Susana is very detail-oriented and works hard to provide her services in the best way to satisfy her clients. She worked for one of our clients and we corresponded quite a few times. Her design work corresponded to what our needs were for that project.
Mike Tomitz, Homeowner
Your design and implementation of the website and sales brochure for my home was a major factor in quickly selling the house, at above the listing price! I had an offer during the first open house and we expect to close escrow before the end of the month. I am sure the buyers went back to the web site many times to reinforce their decision to buy in a time of very difficult market conditions.
In fact, I received many, many compliments on both the web site and the brochure you produced from local real estate professionals, potential buyers, family and friends. My sister and sister-in-law are both experienced realtors on the east coast and they were extremely impressed with the marketing literature and website that you designed for me.
Thank you for your fast, professional and effective service. It was a pleasure working with you on this project and I hope to do so again in the future.
Bruce Guynn, Owner of Umbrella Productions and
Lead Singer/Songwriter/Bassist: Big Rain:
I want to take a moment to share with you my appreciation for Susana and Kevin at McGuire Communication. They have done the design and maintenance on my web site over the last five or more years. Over this time we have received nothing but compliments about our site, and it has generated a lot of business for us.
Their creativity and attention to detail is outstanding. They always take the time to be sure that our site has a unique quality that represents our image, and is true to what we are about.
As we have evolved, they have worked with me closely to help us keep our site updated so that it truly reflects our latest happenings and future developments. This is because they have the ability to plan for the long term and see the big picture through the original design.
I would not hesitate to recommend McGuire Communication to anyone who would desire a creative and professional website.
Thank you so much for the service and support you have provided over the years.

Marie Wainscoat Carmel Art Festival Director:
I am writing this letter on behalf of Susana McGuire, who I have had the pleasure of working with during the recent Carmel Art Festival 2000.
It was at this time that I had the opportunity to work with Susana on several projects that were extremely time consuming and required an expertise on graphic design. Susana not only brought the project within the timeframe requested but provided us with a design that was very attractively engineered to cover all the text that we required.
Susana worked well with the many last minute changes and maintained a gentile manner that calmed us all down in those last stages of production.
Susana is a very talented and capable individual who brings the quality of excellence to whatever task or role she undertakes.
Susana is capable, reliable, dedicated, hardworking and has a very easy going, relaxed, undaunted way about her combined with a great sense of professionalism. These qualities alone make her a joy to have on any project. Her ability to make everyone who works with her feel comfortable is a tremendous asset.
Because of her high degree of proficiency as a graphic designer and her talent and ability in a variety of related fields plus her valuable people skills, I highly recommend Susana McGuire.
