“Best. Boss. Ever.
Alejandra is hard working, passionate and supportive. She gives 150% to every project and manages to put a smile on everyone's face while she does it. She champions her team and makes us all better both personally and professionally.
Her eye for design and fashion is always on point and she really is one of the best Art Directors I've had the pleasure to see in action, but truly most of all, her energy lifts the room and makes everyone work harder and better. And that is a one of a kind ability I've not encountered much in my career. ”
Luna Hurtado, Copywriter / Mother New York
“Working with Alejandra is one of the best experiences that my advertisement career has offer me. She is so talented and inspiring that makes every project feel like THE PROJECT. Her visual universe is absolutely amazing, she is great leading creative groups and her passion is contagious when she presents ideas to clients. Anything I can say is not enough, you will love working with her!”
Isabel Hart, Freelance Creative Director / Copywriter
“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Alejandra on several projects. Not only is she incredibly passionate about bringing out the absolute best in everything she works on, but is also like a ray of sunshine every time she walks through the door. Her work speaks for itself - insightful, fresh and beautiful. Behind the scenes she listens, understands the client and their needs, pushes back when required, but also lets go on the small stuff that will not fundamentally impact the creative result. The ability to know how to that is rare and an attribute each client appreciates. Alejandra is a pure joy to work with.”
Michelle Strank, Freelance Producer
“Ale doesn’t need to look for inspiration, she is inspiration. She leads and lives with an energy and passion that is so contagious it lights up even the dullest of conference rooms. Her vision (like her heart) is always big and colorful, but what’s amazing is her ability to execute and express it clearly and quickly. I have learned so much about advertising and big ideas from Ale, and she is a true leader because she can make any creative feel at home while empowering them to grow.”
Alexandra Stielow, Freelance Copywriter
“Alejandra is creative goddess. She kicks ass in everything, no matter what it is. I've been working under Ale as an art director for much of my time here at KBS+ and not only does she provided amazing creative direction but she's an amazing role model. She truly wants the best work possible for any and all of her clients. Ale will do anything to achieve this. She definitely has an eye for beautiful work and the mind to conceptualize the shit out of any brief. Any creative agency would be SO lucky to have Ale on their team.”
Jen Donatelli, Art Director / Mother New York
“Words cannot express or describe the experience you get, working with Alejandra. Her eye for color, design and typography is bar none the best out there. A top notch Creative Director and passion for everything beautiful, clean and tasteful. She has her eye and hands on the pulse of all trends, fashion, video and art. Her Pinterest is a casebook study and a bible for anyone in Design and Advertising, better than any stock image site! The best part of her is the heart she brings to every job. I love her and I would work with her any day of the week!”
Dana Yee, Studio Creative Director / KBS+P
“I had the privilege to work with Alejandra at Mother. She is driven and passionate about the work, has an incredible eye and a visual mind that allows her to identify a great idea even when it's too early for other people to realize. She constantly encourages her team to keep going no matter what and shows them ways to make their work better and more efficient.
Alejandra loves getting involved, especially with all things color and idea visualization.
She is willing to work with you until the work is exactly where it needs to be and, most importantly, she does it with the best attitude, making every day a fun one.
Would love to work with her in the future for sure.”
Catalina Monsalve, Art Director / Mother New York
“Alejandra is true DIVA: Disciplined, innovative, versatile and aesthetically perfect. She will turn ashes to gold and fill it with substance. It does not matter what the assignment is, she will bring her A game and blow your mind. She must have a magic wand hidden somewhere. I would like to steal it or at least be her when I grow up.”
Joel Luna, Senior Art Director / Graphic Designer, Freelance
“Alejandra is one of the most talented, driven and creative people i've had the pleasure of working with in this industry. Both professionally and personally, I cant praise her enough.”
Alan Bibby, Creative Director / Film Director, Logan
“Alejandra is a good Designer/Art Director/Thinker but what sets her apart from any other schlub on this linkedin contraption is that she loves what she does and she does it well. She could sell a steak made from a baby calf to it's momma cow who just finished a large meal. That's how good she is.
She's not one those creatives who's just chasing after award winning work, but she's a rare creative who can concept ideas that can both achieve results and win awards. Besides, we all know chasing awards is easy considering they don't have any legs.
If you're not sold by the fact that she's a smart, intelligent and passionate creative then maybe you will be by the fact that she's one of the best people out there. I don't think that's entirely fair to the human race for me to say that since I haven't met the entire human race, but she's one of the best out of the small portion that I have met.
In conclusion I will say that If anyone was ever crazy enough to make me a boss, she would be my first hire.”
Daniel Shapiro, Art Director, Saatchi & Saatchi LA
“Alejandra is sunshine and talent and elegance all wrapped up in one bubbly enthusiastic package. There is not an assignment she is not giddy to accept and there is not an assignment she cannot turn into an opportunity to create something smart and beautiful.

Joseph Mazzaferro, SVP, Group Creative Director, Deutsch, NY
“Alejandra is one of the most positive, energetic and hungry workers I've ever seen. But that would mean nothing if she didn't have talent. Luckily she has a ton of talent as well. She has quickly become one of those people that you can give an assignment to and you know that she'll come back with something great. There are few assignments that I don't request Ale to work on. In fact I hate writing a recommendation for her because I don't want her working for anyone else.”
Jon Goldberg, Executive Creative Director, KBS+

She is a breath of fresh air, and her effervescent positivity warms the hearts of everyone who encounters her.”
Hilary Hudgins, Senior Copywriter, KBS+
“Yes, she's a great designer and art director. But, what I love the most is her conceptual brain! She is a geyser of ideas. She has the same attitude that I always believed in..."Fine, you want to kill that idea. I have more." It's what keeps a good creative going. You have to believe there are more and better ideas out there. Stars like her learn they can shine anywhere.”

It's inspirational to work with someone who sees each project and every day as an opportunity. Ale is a team player who works hard to earn the respect of her colleagues - hammering away at something until she finds the right solve. Besides her ever engaging sense of humor, Ale is a energetic and a positive influence to all around her. I highly recommend Alejandra.”

She's filled with positivity and enthusiasm, making all of our projects I'd say, at least a 1000 times better. She's an open collaborator and a thrill to work with. And I love the way she says "Chicken McNuggets" — you're the best Alejandra!”
Kevin Egan, Senior Copywriter, Ammirati
“Alejandra is truly talented and her working ethics are strong. I guess what hasn't been emphasized enough is her personality.

She is full of class, style, and she smells good!”

That's Alejandra to you folks -- definitely a keeper for your ad agency. Scoop her up before she slips away to your competitor!”

She's an eloquently talented woman in her field as she is multi-cultured, but most of all, she is an exquisite human being. After all folks, humanity is the essence of what we do in design or in illustration.”
