Steve Walker...
I have worked on a number of projects with Janet Hopson, and she has always exceeded the expectations of both the client and me. She can be counted on to develop layouts and designs that are creatively appropriate and just right for the client’s needs. She frequently goes beyond the scope of the project with added value in service and technical advice. Working with Janet is a personal and professional pleasure and I can highly recommend her for your design project.

Jay Albrecht, Albrecht Publishing...
It is my pleasure to highly recommend Janet Hopson as a dedicated, excellent graphic designer with quality experience in a variety of areas. She was always willing to jump in and go the extra mile as duty called. Moreover, she supplied files to the printer that contained no errors and made the process as smooth as possible, even up against a hard deadline. Again, I highly recommend Janet for graphic design or other related tasks, based on my successful experience with her. She would be a fine asset for any organization.

Susan Veale, Rural Health Association of Tennessee...
It is with great pleasure that I am writing this letter of reference for Janet Hopson-Graphic Station. We have worked with Janet since 1994. She has designed and printed
our membership brochures, signs, conference invites and brochures, newsletters
and other invites to events that we host. We are very satisfied with her work as both a designer and her ability to work within our budget. Janet is very conscientious about her work and the finished product. She will do what you want with your print item but she is also caring enough to tell you when a design is not going to work as a finished product. I do not hesitate to say that our professional relationship will continue as long as Janet is available to work with us.

Andrea V. Burckhard, Dale Hollow Marketing Group...
I would highly recommend Janet Hopson for any position that utilizes her graphic design and web-based skill set, her dedication, integrity, honesty and her outstanding communication skills. We produced many publications over the years with Janet and some were put together with very tight deadlines and Janet was always able to get it to the printer in time and without complaint! Janet loves a challenge, is very willing to learn and has a strong work ethic, with a desire to work. I would recommend Janet Hopson highly for any position.

Kathryn J. Gillette, Market President & Chief Executive Officer, Bayfront Health...
It is my pleasure to provide you with a letter of reference for your healthcare job search. As you well know, the provision of healthcare is a very professional and important choice in our lives. While each of us in the healthcare industry believes that we provide the very best of care, we are always looking for ways to distinguish ourselves in a very competitive market. It has become increasingly important in our business to message our stakeholders with clear, concise, and eye-catching messages. The healthcare industry is compelled to hire and utilize talent such as yours! And, we must do so with attention to detail and cost! Janet, your designs, creativity, attention to detail and thoughtful processing of your client needs makes you a solid choice for any healthcare provider. As we approach patients, families, employees, and physicians, I can readily appreciate that the message may vary between stakeholders, but, still has to identify the brand and the value proposition for the company. Any healthcare provider would be lucky to have your talents in their business. Your work for many years with the Rural Health Association of Tennessee lends such credibility and value to your emerging work in the Florida market with our healthcare needs. As we have reviewed your work and scope of services, I am confident you will find the right fit here in Florida.
