Laura is a superb small contractor who handled all the design and printing for our extremely impressive 25th annual update. Our Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Heart Center group had more than 200 publications in the past year and we mentor countless medical students, residents, fellows and nurses throughout the Johns Hopkins community and beyond. We wanted to get the update out before the holidays and sent to our past donors and this has triggered new donations. One of our donors who is featured in the update with her late husband donates $20,000 each year.

I have worked with Laura for over 3 years and time and again she proves why she is our go-to designer. Many of our projects have strict brand standards, but there are instances where Laura has free reign and designs eye-catching, effective communications. Way too many times I call on her for last-minute projects, and she always comes through! I can also use her as a sounding board to help in project development. She is a pleasure to work with. I would be lost without her!

I have had the good fortune of being able to utilize Laura Sobelman's prodigious design talents for more than 15 years, in three different workplaces -- including my own company. Once you have found Laura you are not likely to let her go! Not only is Laura a gifted graphic designer, she also brings additional skills to the table. She has an ability with language that allows her to marry her design with the copy it represents and/or accompanies. Laura also ensures the excellence of the end product beyond what is typically expected from the graphic designer, and for this there is no extra charge. Laura does it because she is truly committed to helping her clients and because she wouldn't dream of letting something pass from or through her hands that did not meet with her own demanding expectations for herself. You will never have to ask Laura to go the extra mile: she will already have traversed it. Laura is forward-thinking, yet she remains sensitive to the needs of her client. Always professional, she is extremely easy to work with, making any project with her a true pleasure.

Laura and I have worked together over the years and I have the greatest admiration for her abilities. She has worked as a successful graphic designer for close to 30 years now, and I would recommend her to anyone that would be considering her for a project. She brings insightful ideas to the tasks that she takes on and her work always cuts through the clutter, making her projects the most effective.

As Director of Marketing for Oldcastle Precast Systems, Inc., I was fortunate to work with Sobelman Communications on a wide range of projects and campaigns, including new product introduction, direct mail campaigns, catalog redesign, and technical material production. Laura’s extraordinary ability to create creative and well-designed pieces from my sparse concepts both simplified and enhanced my marketing efforts. Her ability to immediately grasp the essential elements of every project and create pieces perfectly suited to the project goals was invaluable; and her knowledge of the design process introduced new creative options beyond my previous boundaries. In short, I could not have done it without her. I would not hesitate to recommend Laura Sobelman and Sobelman Communications to any company in need of graphics communications services.

Our first Fall fundraiser concert for Neighborhood Studios provided much needed financial support to allow students to participate in music through year round, after school programs. Working with Sobelman Design was so easy — Laura intuitively grasped what we were trying to accomplish and her work captured the excitement and vitality of both the students and the classes in which they they enroll. She created such great visual energy—we credit her marketing and donation materials with helping us raise over $25,000 this year through our annual appeal and Fall concert.
