These are a few recommendations from my colleagues and clients via LinkedIn.
Carrie consistently goes above and beyond what is asked of her. She takes the initiative to push our communications efforts to new levels and new audiences. She is quick, efficient, and organized, and she keeps others on task. Her calm, professional demeanor, good humor, flexibility, and willingness to do whatever is needed makes her invaluable to the communications and research teams. She checks in and informs staff about deadlines and delivers consistent, high-quality work on time. She has been an amazingly productive and proactive addition to CRPE since day 1. Her marketing expertise and design and technical skills are a great addition to the Center. She immediately “got” CRPE’s style and has been deeply involved in improving the website design and function. She very quickly gained staff confidence: project teams appreciate her fresh perspective and trust her design and style instincts, her ideas on content, and her guidance on social media and outreach.
Carrie is an incredible asset. She approaches her work thoughtfully and brings a huge array of skills and talents to solve designs and communication needs in both print and web. In addition to solid design skills, Carrie is also a problem solver and great communicator. In the work at CRPE, she was able to take complicated projects with multiple demands, organizing herself and the small team towards workable solutions. It was terrific to work with Carrie—you always knew she would follow through and persist in finding solutions that worked for the whole team.
Carrie was phenomenal to work with on a design and strategic level. She’s creative and visually innovative, constantly doing research and finding new ways to approach our design needs. But she was also a strategic problem solver, and would dive into the weeds and squint at numbers to pull out insight that we could apply to improve our communications efforts. She’s a team player and ready to jump in to help on projects whenever she’s asked or needed, while at the same time balancing her priorities well and delivering projects on time. Carrie challenged me to be better at my job and to continuously strive for improvement. I wish I could take her with me on every project I ever do!
Carrie would be an incredible asset and valuable contributor to any organization. She listens to and understands clients needs, with an uncanny ability to quickly make their wishes and specifications a reality. She takes direction with great enthusiasm, then responds with more than you expect in a very short amount of time. Her graphic design talent never ceases to amaze me and my clients. [...] I wholeheartedly recommend Carrie in any endeavor she wishes to pursue.
Carrie has a great eye for design, a passion for learning new skills and technology, and was a huge asset to Rocky Mountain Institute. Quick to turn around projects under pressure, she has an unrelenting dedication to quality and I would recommend her to anyone as a valuable addition to a team.
Carrie Jordan was a great addition to the team at Rocky Mountain Institute. She regularly exceeded our expectations in her ability to manage complex projects and generate creative content. She’s a fine collaborator and a pleasure to work with. We would hire her back in a nano-second.
Carrie and I have collaborated on a number of high-level print products—magazines and annual reports. She is a talented and bold designer who comes up with and executes design concepts that work really well for the content. She is very aware of the content messages and purposes when she designs. She is a reliable, trustworthy, agreeable and accountable team member who is always a pleasure to work on a project with, regardless of the project stresses. She is supremely intelligent and her insights have moved many a project to a higher level.
Carrie is one of most determined and hard working colleagues I have worked with. She demonstrated that determination to learn new design techniques and media formats, and the persistence to keep up with a stunning work load. Communications at RMI, like many firms was often subject to rapid changes in direction and last-minute crises. Carrie handled these incidents gracefully and made sure quality products were completed on time. I was extremely impressed by her flexibility and curiosity in learning digital video editing when we no longer had those skills in house. Carrie acquired these skills on her own initiative and completed several excellent video projects.
Carrie is a huge creative asset to our team. She is simultaneously a big thinker with great insight. At the same time she is a great at execution and meeting tight deadlines. Her design and multi-media skills are excellent and have furthered our organization’s brand immeasurably. She is good with web and print design as well as video conception and editing. Carrie is a great team-player and helps to create a strong, healthy team.
Carrie worked in our studio, and was a wonderful, productive presence. We have a very small shop, so everyone has to wear many hats during the course of an average day, and Carrie fulfilled many tasks in an engaging and efficient way. She was always positive and upbeat, and her expertise in the areas of graphics and design were truly valuable. I recommend her highly. She is organized, creative, hard working, and a good colleague to be around.
Carrie Jordan was an integral addition to our team. She readily took on projects independently and was able to work collaboratively with physicians and management alike. Not only was she successful in completing a number of collateral projects—from concept, to design, including photography, to print—but she was able to do so within a very short time frame and the product was exceptional.
