"I have been blessed to work with the Ink&Pixel team for nearly two decades. In that time, they have been an engine of inspiration and unmatched creativity — pouring their hearts, minds, and spirits into every project and special request. From strategic planning, holistic branding, event design, creative graphics and internal and external positioning... I credit this team with being one of the secrets to my professional success. Whether supporting me through strategic plans and campaigns for some of the largest companies and complex issues on the planet — or helping my humble non-profit refresh and propel its way forward, this team is dynamite. They have my highest gratitude, endorsement, and trust."
"Working with Noemi was a completely smooth, highly enlightening, and really fun experience. She guided us through an enormously positive collaborative process. We now have a stunning new logo, which perfectly captures the vibrant and creative spirit of our Art Center."
"Ink&Pixel is a marketing agency with a soul. Noemi is an artist who seeks to understand your business, your industry, your mission and your legacy in order to create a unique and powerful brand."
"Thank you for your many contributions to The Connection's inaugural Masquerade Ball. The event was a great success, raising nearly $22,000 for our programs that assist individuals out of homelessness. We appreciate all you do for us!"
"It’s hard to believe that I’ve been working with Noemi and the team at Ink & Pixel for 20 years...probably because they make it so much fun. I’ve never met anyone else who could so thoroughly and quickly absorb what our organization is all about, and then turn around and offer a menu of options for how to share that understanding with others. Simply put, they “get us.” And they make our challenges their challenges, and we conquer them together."
"I wanted to thank you—so much—for all of the work you have put into the Connecticut Children's Collective. You know I love all that you have created, but it was so great to see the positive reactions from the folks yesterday. Along with the stress of getting it all done in time, you truly went the extra mile — please know it is greatly appreciated!"
"I have had the great pleasure of working with Noemi Kearns and her team for 17 years, with two different agencies, and I am looking forward to many more years of working together. In addition to the great work Ink&Pixel has done, they are very involved in other community endeavors and truly strive to make the world a better place with the work they do. I know they make it more beautiful."
“I am so proud of our new brand and website — the colors, the images, the message are all perfect. It’s already creating a buzz that will lead to increased support for our mission. Your talent and compassion shine once again. I can’t thank you enough for all your work on behalf of the Coalition. Your efforts make the world a better place.”
"While I've been thrilled with this logo and design, I didn't get all choked up until just now looking at the branded agenda — not sure why it had such a big impact on me, but wanted you to know that your work is fabulous and that we're lucky to be working with you."
