Jill Houk is a bit of a Chicago underground celebrity. She seems to know everyone and her spark is unmissable. But her talent goes way beyond her light-up-the-room smile, Jill is a master ingredient wizard (or so we call her). She consults with people to design recipes that cater to their dietary needs, personal tastes and get this: to their own personal kitchen space and tools.
She is a master recipe developer for brands such as Sarah Lee and can whip up recipes with calorie restriction, ingredient restrictions, you name it. Whatever you throw at her is just another challenge she can easily figure out. Her brand was to represent the incredible accuracy of her ingredients yet the wonderful magic of her flavorful results, we also wanted to make sure her smile was in there, somewhere.
Ceci has done quite a bit of work for me in the past - from logo design, to marketing material and now most recently a website for my 2nd biz. I had a tight budget and Ceci really made the most out of it. She was very upfront with what could be done and what couldn't and found creative solutions to stretch the budget. The turnaround was impressive and she even spent some time training me on updating the site myself. Its so nice to work with a person who follows through on their commitments without me having to obsessively micro-manage.
