Brand Design Leader, BIC Writing
Norma Kwan-Waski, Managing Partner, at John Waski Design has consistently been a client focused partner during the years I have been with BIC. Norma's keen understanding to the sensitivity of brand strategies and project objectives has earned her a reputation of trust and makes projects with John Waski Design enjoyable, and worry free. Norma never lets you down! Her extensive knowledge of pre-press production makes the designs not only beautiful but printing magic. I have no hesitation in recommending Norma and know that she will always give of her best in any assignment.
Brand Manager, Beiersdorf
Norma and John Waski were an exceptional team to work with on various creative design projects while I was at NIVEA. They were able to not only take a brief and deliver professional, high-quality conceptual designs for review, but took the initiative to ask questions and resolve any questions BEFORE delivering their design results, thus eliminating project delays. Whether given long-lead or rush projects, their approach was always professional yet personable, detail-oriented and on-time. The long-standing working arrangement that Norma and John Waski have had with NIVEA is a testament to delivering a superior work product, and I would welcome the chance to work with them again in the future.
V.P. Marketing, Polaroid
Norma Waski was one of the most creative people i have ever worked with. Beyond the creativity was a wonderful and willing personality that made doing business together a pleasure. Norma created a cool icon for our PhotoMax brand at Polaroid which became the center of attention in most of our communications, packaging and collateral materials. I would recommend Norma to anyone looking for an outstanding creative!
Marketing Manager, New Products(US), Domino Foods, Inc.
I was fortunate to work with Norma on numerous occasions over several years in brand management at Unilever. Norma handled many packaging design and re-design projects during that time. Norma "get's it" both in terms of the consumer and how to deliver a project. She is a consumer led designer and is inquisitive. She works to peel back the layers on a brief to spark design led by insight. Additionally, Norma is a good business partner - you don't have to devote time to staying on top of Norma - Norma stays on top of your project and communicates well. That style is worth a lot these days.
Director of Customer Marketing, The Topps Company
Norma is a very creative and responsive designer and I found it extremely easy to work with her. She provided a full range of options and always added value to the project. I also worked with Norma at Eagle Family Foods where she provided a very innovative and unique solution to a packaging challenge which was successfully executed.
Sr. Marketing Manager, Philips
I had an urgent project and John made sure that he met my extremely aggressive timeline. We had many requests for the design that John was able to achieve and he provided us with a great design that now exists at the shelf. I highly recommend John for any design project that you might have. He gets immersed in the project, understands the client's needs, and has great creativity.
