Laura is among the most talented and creative visual storytellers with whom I have the pleasure to work. She confidently applies all the design implements in her toolbox — meaningful use of colors, striking and thought-provoking imagery and relevant facts and figures — to create data and concept visualizations that transcend the obvious. And unlike some graphic artists, Laura actually spends time reading the words that surround her designs. In this way, her work not only complements but extends the meaning of the written word. In our collaborations on thought leadership white papers/reports, infographics, e-books and PPT presentations, Laura always found unique ways to convey data and business concepts that were sometimes arcane or complex in simple but visually stunning ways. And most important, she was a pleasure to work with — forcefully defending her designs when she believed that they were the best way to tell the story, accommodating me when my vision may have exceeded my grasp. She always found an effective middle of the road that balanced beauty and impact. The end result: graphic designs that truly resonates with our target audience. All told, Laura was a pleasure to work with and would be an asset to any organization lucky to have her.
Laura is an amazing designer and extremely talented visual storyteller. At Cognizant, I’ve partnered with Laura since 2017 — she continually delivered high quality, creative design solutions for our thought leadership projects. She’s organized, detail-oriented, has excellent project management skills — always delivering my projects on or before the requested deadline! Her infographics and E-books designs are truly innovative and well received, showing how well she understands the brand—and the length she goes to achieve perfection. Laura is an absolute asset to have on your design team and I highly recommend her.
“Laura has been my “go to” designer for close to 7 years—at two different companies. Her exceptional creativity, her talent of execution and her seamless ability to understand the company’s brand, internalize it and become an extension of the team she’s working with is like no other art director I’ve ever worked with. With every project she has been an amazing team player, ready to parachute in and save the day. Laura has produced standout, relevant marketing content consistently and has translated marketing strategies into a wide range of creative marketing materials that have earned us multiple awards over the years.

“Laura D’Eliseo has been an absolute joy to work with! I have had the pleasure of partnering with Laura on projects ranging from large-scale in-person events to infographics, e-books, whitepapers, and more. She has an uncanny ability to understand a brand, product, and technology area quickly and develop engaging graphics that are highly professional, and also warm and authentic. Since our first working relationship as colleagues at FICO, I have referred, hired, and recommended Laura’s design services at each of my last 3 companies, and her work has consistently stood out and been received with positive feedback from internal stakeholders and customers.”
“Laura can handle any project I send her way, from simple product data sheets to complex brochures requiring the creation of custom artwork, icons and illustrations. She always maintains a positive and upbeat outlook. She is a fun collaborator, a good listener, is highly organized, follows-through on her commitments, has excellent design skills and understands print and web technologies. What more could a Creative Director ask—Laura has it all! She is a “gem” and a true asset to any organization.”
“Laura is one of the best designers I’ve ever worked with. She has a rare combination of both right-brain and left-brain skills – artistic and creative, while still being organized, detail-oriented and deadline-driven. I always appreciated how hard Laura worked to get a project right the first time around, minimizing the number of review rounds required to finalize it. That is huge! Laura is a talented and consummate professional, and any organization would be fortunate to work with her.”
