Andrea Jacchia, giornalista e disegnatore, Milano
Sono, da molti anni, giornalista in Italia (dove ho scritto per L’Espresso, la Repubblica, Il Sole 24 ore, e Diario della settimana) e, più recentemente, ho ripreso anche a disegnare ritratti immaginari. Esposti, fra l’altro, al Padiglione-Italia di Torino (gennaio-febbraio 2012), nell’ambito delle manifestazioni della Biennale di Venezia.
La costruzione di un sito che presentasse, affiancate, attività cosi’diverse, era particolarmente complessa: si trattava, fra l’altro, di informare e di far vedere come quei due mezzi espressivi – e quindi quelle due professioni – fossero, per certi versi, complementari. Elena Vimercati – che conosco da sempre per le sue grandi, e riconosciute, capacità professionali e la sua esperienza – ha realizzato questo sito (andreajacchia.com) con un gusto e una scorrevolezza del tutto rare, e originali. L’apertura (bio e homepage, introdotte da una bellissima foto di Maria Cristina Vimercati, e dal particolare di un mio disegno), il catalogo di 30 disegni scelti, la “scrivania” con diversi articoli e racconti pubblicati (alcuni con doppia traduzione in francese e inglese), formano un insieme di immediata forza visiva, oltre che molto maneggevole. Elena Vimercati ha avuto, in sintesi, un’ “idea” complessiva e molte idee conseguenti. Il loro perfezionamento, incrociato a un impegno sul progetto lungo due mesi, ha prodotto un risultato che è andato oltre le mie aspettative. Di giornalista e disegnatore incerto su come presentarsi doppio e complementare.

Elena’s web sites are so well designed and ours is no exception. Elena is truly creative, modern and stylish. She will work with you to collaborate on a design and, if you don’t know exactly what you want, Elena can create a work of art for you.

Elena designed and set up my web page. Her creativity and sensitivity made the development of this project painless, fast and most enjoyable.

It is always a pleasure to work with her.
Toblini, Costume Designer, New York, NY
Her friendliness made it extremely easy to communicate my unorganized ideas,
her artistic sensibility gave the site the original and professional look I was
trying to achieve, and her technical knowledge made it possible for me to have
in a very brief time a web site that navigate easily and swiftly. She is always
available for any update that the nature of my business requires.

Metro Salon, Rochester, NY
"Elena co-created our website for Metro Salon. I write "co-created" because working with her is truly a collaborative effort. She listens, suggests, executes and repeats this shared, professional, and punctual process until the team is happy. We love our elegant site and the brisk business it has generated. Grazie Elena!"
Weavers' Guild of Rochester, Rochester, NY
The Weavers’ Guild of Rochester relied on Elena Vimercati for the new graphic design of its website. She was able to translate our concepts into the clear, crisp, modern look that we wanted. Her sense of color, advice about layout and design elements and quick response made a complex task seem easy. All this, and a delight to work with!!...............I heartily recommend Elena for your design needs. Nancy M Kanniainen, WGR, Inc.
Community College, Rochester, NY - Jeff
The nature of Elena's work for MCC involved working
with clients, interpreting their concepts and designing
of their ideas for web publication. In discussion with some
of Elena's clients, I learned that she combined very well
her extensive technological expertise with an extremely creative
and artistic flair. In every case, Elena's clients characterized
their interactions with her as "very positive",
and they commented on their satisfaction with the high quality
of the final product.
Beach Dive Club, St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands
Elena responds rapidly to our needs. She is professional
in her dealings with us and has successfully blended
our ideas with hers to create a product that has pleased us.
us feel that we were part of a design team while providing
important guidance on the design and navigation of our
site. She has a wonderful aesthetic sense and knows how to create
something that is visually appealing.
This is one example of the many positive comments we receive from our clients: "I
have searched many evenings for a site with snorkeling information. Your
site is SUPER !!! I like the idea of the
pricing pages and
of diving ... Thanks again for such a great web site!
- Mart Hallock ..."
Rossi, Architect, Milano, Italy
Elena wonderfully interpreted my needs by designing a sophisticated web site
that shows a crisp European design and the trendy colors that I use in my architectural
work. I like the bold palette she used in the interior pages to create a gallery
of my work that leaves room for future projects. When I tell my friends that
Elena and I did all the work long distance without any effort, they cannot
believe it! She is a very professional and pleasant person to work with!
Elena is a self starter, she is responsible and creative.
Her designs are clean and beautiful as well as being
easy to use. I would say that out of all the designers
I have worked with, she is the one I would recommend above all others, because she takes responsability, does the work quickly, and her design is unique. She's a no nonsense worker who does an excellent job.
