Owen Fegan, creative director at New York Media

I commissioned Danielle to illustrate a series of 5 custom “paper dolls” to help promote the launch of The CutNew York Magazine’s Fashion and Women’s lifestyle site.

In addition to being a world-class illustrator with an easy-going personality who is a pleasure to deal with, Danielle is a complete pro when it comes to beating deadlines, coming up with creative solutions to feedback, and providing to-spec art.

The dolls she illustrated to highlight the five channels of The Cut (Fashions, Fame, Beauty, Goods, Love & War) which were printed on magnetic material and die cut have all exceeded my expectations, and have received a fantastic response from the New York fashion, beauty and advertising communities.

I could not recommend Danielle Meder more highly, and I look forward to working with her again in the future.

Ashleigh Rahm, art director

Danielle is an exceptional illustrator and a pleasure to work with. Her skills, creativity and understanding of client requests made the project effortless with a beautiful final product. I will definitely call on Danielle again as opportunities arise.

Sarai Mitnick, founder of Colette Patterns

Danielle is everything I was looking for in an illustrator; she is skilled, reliable, knowledgeable, and her communication is exceptionally clear. She made my job infinitely easier while coming up with a top notch finished product. In short, she is a true professional and I would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Matthew Emery, game developer at ngmoco:)

Danielle was an absolutely invaluable resource when working on our fashion-focused game project. She penned hundreds of sketches of clothing items which were immediately usable by our artists, and provided valuable insight into current fashion trends.

Laura-Jean Bernhardson, fashion designer

Danielle is an extremely talented illustrator and very professional to work with. She delivered terrific results in a tight time frame. I love her work.

Gail McInnes, program co-ordinator

As a teacher of the Fashion Illustration and Presentation Workshops at the Passion For Fashion Program through the Toronto Fashion Incubator (TFI) and the Youth Employment Services (YES), Danielle was praised by her students who found her workshops very helpful for their future careers in fashion. Her ability to explain and relay theories, personal insights and practices in the simplest terms in group situations inspired the students who participated in her workshops.

Kathleen Fasanella, author

She has an inquisitive and sometimes intimidatingly insightful mind. Her intelligence and breadth of knowledge is formidable. Truth be told, in part I bought her art as investment -she’s going places and I look forward to saying I knew her way back when. Sure, you could hire someone other than Danielle but I don’t know why you would.
