Jonathan Silberman

My experience with Parlato Design Studio has been exceptionally positive. Heather not only conceptualized how to present my business to the world in the most clear and favorable way, but also helped me to better understand my own personal strengths and limits as they relate to my business venture, which has made me more focused and effective in what I do. I love my logo and the overall aesthetic presentation that she came up with. Heather listens, has a great attitude, and is incredibly well organized as she delivers top quality work. Highly recommended.

Somer Sherwood-White

I’ve worked with Heather on several projects for Descanso Gardens. There are many talented designers out there, but Heather’s services are next-level. Not only is she a talented creative professional, but she is able to see the big picture, and has helped us to focus our overall marketing strategy over the past six months. When we hire Heather, we know we are getting much more than a good-looking piece of collateral — we are getting her thoughtfulness and years of experience in brand messaging. Heather is professional and a pleasure to work with every step of the way, from her detailed written proposal to delivery of the final piece. Thanks, Heather!
