“Joanna recently worked with us on our annual report and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her many years of experience became immediately apparent. She is immaculately organized, knows how to keep the project moving forward, and understands the nature of non-profit organizations and about working intelligently within branding guidelines.”

director of marketing and communications, YMCA of Greater Syracuse


“Put very simply, Joanna makes me look like a genius. We have worked together on over 30 pieces in the past three years, and her work on each has been stellar. Her work on our viewbooks set the standard in our industry for years (and were frequently imitated by our competitors). This year, faced with an overhaul in University branding and a complete redesign of all of our printed materials, Joanna managed all of the new style requirements and turned out a series of beautiful products that have received praise from all of our diverse audiences. She works quickly, responds to any and all of my nonsensical emails with good humor, and is someone I trust absolutely with our brand. She is invaluable to SU Abroad and to me!”

“When looking to rebrand a saint, I wanted someone who could think outside the box and who was excited about taking on the challenge—after all, how many people can say they worked on branding for a saint? I gave Joanna an overwhelming amount of information about not only Saint Marianne’s life and values but also our mission and ideas for sharing her story. The logo that she designed is amazing and takes into account many different aspects of Saint Marianne’s life, her mission and ours. I am getting great response from everyone and know that I made the right decision working with Joanna.”

operations manager, Saint Marianne Cope Shrine & Museum


“I cannot praise her enough for the fantastic job she did with what could have been a very stressful project. Instead, working together, we made it work and met our deadline, with the end result being a set of outstanding printed collateral that continues to earn us the highest compliments from our constituents and collaborators alike. We cannot thank Joanna and GiansantiDesign enough for this project and the others she has designed for us.”

former director of media relations and communications, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Syracuse University


“Joanna took the time to learn about our business and designed mailing pieces that highlight our unique services beautifully. The direct mailing pieces were done so our reader not only learned about our features and services but also felt the true human emotion of our business.”

Kathleen Hughes
former director of sales and marketing, The Nottingham


“I’ve worked with Joanna on new logos and publicity materials for two programs at Syracuse University (LGBT Studies and the SU Human Rights Film Festival), and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the genuine collaborative process of working with her. As a visual studies scholar, I had strong opinions about what I wanted graphically in both projects. Joanna brought striking original ideas to the table and responded creatively to my specific feedback, especially when it concerned the particular parameters of our institutional graphic identity. I am tremendously happy with how both projects turned out.”

“Joanna has been a very valuable addition to our team, even though she is 500 miles away! Joanna’s attention to detail and willingness to work directly with our vendors have made her invaluable both to our company and to me.”

Jennifer Leverett
office manager, Armond Dalton Publishers, Inc.


“Joanna is extremely talented and offers creative and new solutions to our ideas while still maintaining our style and standards. We are always completely satisfied with the results.”

Amy Schmitz
former director of communications, Whitman School of Management, Syracuse University


“Without Joanna’s help, my business would have taken much longer to grow…I don’t think people would have walked through the doors as quickly as they did if it weren’t for her work creating the brand for my fitness studio.”
