I chose Mixto Communications because of Ericka’s experience, but it quickly became apparent that her true talents go beyond a skill set. She has something you cannot teach—the ability to be intuitive and confident while performing on behalf of a client. I feel that anyone can learn a skill, but it takes a special person to truly understand a client’s needs, take ownership, and integrate seamlessly into a team.
As a nonprofit, we want consultants who not only understand our work, but care about it as well. Ericka truly cares and it shows. Mixto Communications has been a genuine partner in our email marketing work and Ericka has brought a sense of strategic vision to our team that was missing....She’s provided critical insight into A/B testing, content ideas, brand voice and best practices. We really value the experience she brings to the table, as well as her collaboration and insight.
It was a breath of fresh air to work with Mixto Communications. I feel like Ericka is someone who understands the work and the deeper concepts of my field—politics, policy, health, and racial equity. She is incredibly sharp and responsive and also clear regarding expectations and projects and timelines. She created a logo and bio that fit my work and personality and was also willing to dispense important ideas and guidance along the way.
I had an incredible experience working with Mixto Communications. Ericka understood the framework of Community Powered Change and was willing to shift her processes throughout our collaboration to account for the project’s needs. Her flexibility was critical – allowing greater input from stakeholders as she developed the branding and communications plan meant better serving community. The branding and website reflect the vision of the many people who were part of creating Community Powered Change.
I reached out to Mixto Communications for a refresh of my resume and LinkedIn profile, and what I walked away with was far more life-changing—a renewed outlook, vision, and plan for my dream career. Ericka pointed out strengths and patterns that helped me understand and identify the niche that sets me apart. The thought-provoking questionnaire and one-on-one session helped shape my career trajectory and identify what I aspire to do and who I want to be.
I hired Mixto Communications at a critical time. I’d been in business for several months, but didn’t have branding in place. None of my marketing pieces looked the same. Ericka worked with me to design a bright and beautiful logo that matched my aesthetic, then developed a consistent look for all of my communications—email newsletters, flyers, and even social media images. In 2016, she redesigned my website from the ground up, migrating it from WordPress to Squarespace, and the results are stunning. Through it all, she always answered questions patiently and professionally, guiding me and explaining what I needed to know. I consider Mixto Communications an integral part of my success as a business owner.
When our Jack and Jill chapter was ready to announce the launch of our new website, Ericka Lozano-Buhl of Mixto Communications generously donated design services to our organization, creating a beautiful and sophisticated piece that we loved. I was so impressed with her work and feel fortunate we had the opportunity to work together.
