Previous: Marketing Manager for the Canucks; current: Executive Director, CKNW Orphans Fund
It gives me great pleasure writing this recommendation for Andi. Andi is an incredible talent, with vision, strategy, and creative execution. I first began working with Andi at the Vancouver Canucks and she was always one of my favourite graphic designers to work with on the team. She came to the table with fresh ideas and great vision. She has fantastic energy and a welcoming positive attitude. Andi has a great heart and she puts all of herself into every job she takes on – I could always count on her, from small every day jobs to large scope projects that took months to plan.
I admire and respect Andi and her work so much that I have further worked with her both personally and professionally post Canucks. From designing my personal wedding invitations and programs, to work for my website NetworkinginVan.com, I have always recommended Andi to friends and colleagues and they have always been delighted with Andi’s work.
She is extremely professional and personable, you shouldn’t look any further!

Previous: Program Director, Producer, Cultural Olympiad – Vancouver 2010 Olympics; Current: Supervisor Special Events at City of Toronto
Andi’s work for the 2010 Cultural Olympiad was nothing short of spectacular. Under intense deadline pressure Andi created a series of highly successful event programs, catalogues and other marketing collateral for this groundbreaking Olympic & Paralympic arts festival. Her work was consistently inspired, clean and well organized. She was always calm, pleasant and capable of discerning our needs and desires with minimal direction.
Previous: Head of Visual Arts Vancouver 2010 Olympics
I’d like to take a moment to recommend Andi Mortenson, whom I had the great fortune of working with at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics while I held the position as Head of Visual Arts for the Cultural Olympiad.
Andi’s company, Epic Design, created several catalogues, invitations, and other print collateral for my division. I was impressed with her ability to create excellent designs that satisfied an aesthetic specific to my industry while adhering to the corporate design standards of VANOC.
Andi’s response to the pressures of working in an unusually hectic environment and under extremely tight deadlines was exceptional. She is smart, steady, unflappable, and brings a professional objectivity to her work – all of which contributed to her success with the project.
Business Development Director at ICON Creative Studio
Andi is an amazing person and an extremely effective manager. She took the time to get to know me as an individual, gave me challenging projects to help with my personal growth, congratulated my successes and helped me overcome any difficulties I was having. Andi is the type of individual who exudes success and makes everyone around her better, if you are fortunate enough to work with her, cherish the opportunity.
Previous: Marketing Communications, Rick Hansen Foundation; Current: Cossette
Andi was a terrific asset to our team, providing outstanding creative in a very professional and timely manner. We collaborated extremely well throughout the planning, production and execution of several national public engagement programs. I look forward to working with her again soon.
CEO, myZone Media Inc.
We’ve hired Andi to do work for our company (www.clubZone.com) several times now and have always been happy with the results. When our in-house design team has been too busy to keep up with the load, Andi was always very helpful to jump into time-sensitive high pressure projects and get everything done on time. If you’ve see the clubZone buses, or the clubZone GLK, you’ve already seen some of Andi’s design work – for which we’ve received nothing but compliments. If you need a contract designer to help you lighten the load, or to run the whole show for you, I can confidently recommend Andi for the job.
REALTOR® at Royal LePage Northshore
Andi was fantastic to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. The value provided, for branding that will serve my business for years to come, was excellent and her turnaround time and professionalism was outstanding. I would highly recommend Andi to anyone that is looking for design work.
