Christine Ellsworth is the kind of designer who can get anything done for you, whether it’s recommending the right approach to a design challenge or providing a much needed asset in the wee hours of the night. She is clear, direct, and has an amazing eye. Behind the scenes or in front of the client her quality of her work is exceptional. We have collaborated on demanding clients such as JP Morgan Chase and the Morgans Hotel Group. I’d work with her again in a heart beat. If you aren’t working with her yet, you should be.

Christine is a rockstar. Like Jem. But without the hologrammed big hair and spandex. She is a hard worker. Always thorough. Pays attention to the details. Christine owns her projects and makes the best of her work every time. Truly outrageous!

Christine has a strong ability to quickly scope out the complexities of a problem and provide solutions. I also found her attitude positive, professional and dare I say cheerful. She is very skilled within the production / design aspects of web design and the software that builds it.

I would work with Christine again if given the chance.

I have worked with Christine on multiple projects at two separate agencies. She is by far one of the most talented ADs I have worked with over my 20+ years of being in the industry. She not only has the design chops, she is affable, organized and knows how to work with a variety of personalities. She has a great understanding of digital and creates experiences that work well on any platform. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an outstanding AD.
