What Do People Who Have Worked with Heather Want You To Know About Her?
Julia Hasbrook, Marketing, Design, Art Direction:
Lisa is the best partner you could ever wish for on a project of any size and budget. From the second you ask her for help sourcing new talent or talent that is out-of-the-box plus the tried and true pros, she has the insights and relationships to find who you need. I have seen many of my projects have great success because Lisa helped me immensely. She has so much experience to make every project smooth, but she’s also there at all times of the day and night to help you. She allows creatives to flourish with their ideas while maintaining the level of creative and keeping projects on time and on budget. I can’t say enough of how much I loved working with Lisa. She is beyond an art producer. She is an amazing partner and one of the few people that puts a smile on my face every time I work with her. She is a true gem!
Chris Sherman, Management Supervisor at RPA:
You know the drill – high pressure client with limited budgets & tight timelines needs amazing work. Then I hope Lisa is your producer. She’s super talented, buttoned up, deeply industry connected and a pure joy to work with. Our introduction was being thrown into a fast moving shoot with many management eyes on it and we made it work and became pals along the way too. I loved working with Lisa and so will you. Total Pro.
Hogler Kurt Ward, Owner, Gloss Retouching LA and NYC:
Lisa has been a trusted and valued colleague for over ten years and I have the highest respect for her approach to work. She has excellent knowledge on style, trends and up-and-coming photographers and has a stead-fast commitment to high quality of execution. She is a pleasure to work with and I always look forward to the next time we work together.
Tim Meraz, Digital Design Director at Team One:
I have been lucky enough to work with Lisa twice in my career. As Design Director at Team One I have found Lisa to be an invaluable partner to me and my team. She loves photography, illustration and art of any kind; always curious and on a mission to find new talent. She is passionate, precise, creative and one of the nicest people I know. I cannot recommend her highly enough, you’d be fortunate to work with her!
Cynthia Held, Founder of Held and Associates:
There are several VERY special art producers who come to mind when I think back over my years as a rep – and Lisa Matthews is definitely one that is way, way on top of that list. She always ….. ALWAYS finds the time (somehow!) in her very hectic day to return a call or answer a question or grant an appointment to share work or just to respond to an email. She is a pro through and through and I believe she really, REALLY loves her work – because she is just so darned good at it. And she cares — genuinely cares about people. She is buttoned up — yet relaxed — extremely knowledge about our ever changing industry. I am lucky to have worked with her countless times throughout the years and I always know that I can always count on her word and that each job will be carried through by her with perfection. Above all, she is genuine …. And we could all use more of that. I am grateful to have worked on many jobs and shared many good times with Lisa – and I look forward to many more.
