Yorkali is an out of the box thinker who embodies an eclectic mix of traditional and cutting edge approaches in his work. He is particularly skilled at catching and latching on to an expressed idea even when the client has only a kernel of thought. His responsive work even at first draft usually expresses both the spirit (emotion) and letter (content) in an incredibly creative way!

He meet all deadlines and came to meetings with great ideas while still being flexible enough to listen to suggestions and adapt to changes in project direction. Yorkali is easy to work with and has a upbeat positive attitude.
