“I have had the opportunity to work with Christopher Tuscan over several projects this year and would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend him. Christopher has been an invaluable freelance member of our team. When we first brought him on, it was for a challenging piece of business, and Christopher immediately rose to the challenge. He not only helped us get through tight timelines, but his attention to detail and design were well received by the client. As a result of that first positive experience, we have repeatedly brought Christopher back to assist on other projects. He has helped us out in a variety of roles from production for a multi-page direct mail piece to an extensive photo retouch project to art direction. I have no doubt you will find Christopher a valuable asset to your company, as he will consistently bring high level work to the table, both in technical expertise and design.”
