Maria at Oddo-Saidi:Fine Art + Graphics did a stellar job of creating an author page that showcased my book, Poisoned Water, about the Flint Water crisis. Her design was finely and powerfully wrought. It was in sync with the serious subject matter; It took advantage of every design element related to the book, including still photos, video, awards, and starred and reader reviews. Maria brought the same sense of caring and passion to the job that I'd like to think I brought to the book. I recommend her highly.

Maria Saidi has done a good deal of work for two of our initiatives. Maria listens carefully and has an uncanny ability to understand the core message for graphics and logos. She is clear, smart and spot-on!. Maria helped launch a new initiative for us and her artwork captivated a new audience immediately, leaving them curious and ready to engage. When she takes on a project, she is committed and provides lots of choice with a quick turnaround. It is a privilege to work with her!

What a delight and how illuminating to work with Maria Saidi. Our collaboration on a logo, due to organizational changes, took some turns, all of which she handled with grace, incredible ingenuity and impeccable design chops.

Maria Saidi is a superb graphic artist. She produced a wonderful logo for our nonprofit, and was a dream to work with. She even offered to revise the logo when our programs changed. Highly recommend her.
