The intelligence, creativity and positive outlook Liz brings to all of her marketing communications work sets her apart from the crowd. She knows how to motivate people, tackle tough challenges and get the job done. I highly recommend her.

Elm Ink is a valued and trusted partner to Pittsburgh Opera. Liz is organized, diligent, and methodical. She connects the dots really well, and has an amazingly deep Rolodex. Liz has brought new ideas to the table that have resulted in wider and deeper media coverage for us than ever before. To top it off, she is a pleasure to work with.

I worked with Elm Ink to create new brand standards and a web presence for Tree Pittsburgh’s Heritage Nursery. It was such a pleasure working with the team, and we couldn’t be happier with the beautiful work they produced. They were diligent and conscientious, and we would recommend them to any business looking to create or freshen up their brand.
— Megan Higgins Palomo, Heritage Nursery Manager, Tree Pittsburgh
It has been a great experience working with Elm Ink. Our new business line brand was pretty much a blank slate and their approach to building the brand identity worked exceptionally well. During the entire process, their creative and responsive team has exceeded my expectations.

I have had the great pleasure to work with Liz for more than four years on everything from re-branding to media strategy for a prominent local nonprofit, and I cannot say enough about the creativity, enthusiasm and expertise that she brought to each and every project. Beyond her obvious talent as a marketing professional she is the most diplomatic and graceful person with whom I have ever done business. It is quite rare to find top-notch technical, organizational and interpersonal skills encapsulated by one individual. For Liz, all of these come naturally: She is a compassionate and careful listener, and quickly gains a deep understanding of what is needed to reach desired goals, demonstrating a keen sense of awareness and tact, as well as attention to detail, that you do not always easily find in the fast-paced field of communications. Liz is a true professional and a wonderful gift to the Pittsburgh nonprofit community.

Liz joined our team at a challenging time in the Museum’s history as we were poised to reopen after two years of construction with a new identity, aggressive marketing campaign, and lots of controlled chaos. She stepped in as if she had been with us for years, handled issues with poise, warmth and the deployment of her strong marketing skills and connections. Her organizational and problem solving abilities are paired with excellent communication techniques. She was a pleasure to work with and did her job with precision and intelligence.
— Judith H. O'Toole, The Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO
Liz worked with myself and our graphic designer on marketing and PR work while we prepared for our grand reopening and our director of marketing was on maternity leave. Liz is very organized, paid great attention to detail, and lent her insight and expertise in the marketing field to keep projects moving efficiently. Our team had comfort in knowing we had a great marketing professional on our team during a very busy time.
— Charlene Bidula, Manager of Communications, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art
I cannot say enough good things about Liz and her work. She has successfully worked with us to brand IQ Escape as the new generation of escape rooms, which is not an easy task! With her creative take on this new industry, she has been diligent on all of our press coverage when we as business owners don’t have the time to be. She analyzes our needs and delivers results quickly. We highly recommend Liz for any of your marketing needs.
— Eric Lloyd, Owner, IQ Escape
Working with Liz and Elm Ink is always a pleasure. Her gift of creative style, attention to detail and ability to communicate a vision are truly unique. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of every project we have worked on, and I highly recommend her work.

As a freelancer for the past several years I have collaborated with professionals ranging from full stack developers, designers, artists, and creative directors to full marketing teams. Working with Liz has been excellent and one of the better experiences in recent memory. Her organization, leadership, creativity, genuine enthusiasm and overall professionalism for clients are above par to say the least. I’m eager to work together again on whatever upcoming awesomeness she has planned in the future.
