 I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jaye Medalia, who was design director for Country Living Gardener magazine, as well as many other publications including Rebecca’s Garden and several Country Living Special Interest Publications. Not only was she a highly creative and talented graphic designer, she was a pleasure
to work with and incredibly flexible when it came to working on layouts, trying out new design elements, and creating brand new magazines and prototypes from scratch on the turn of a dime. Jaye has impeccable taste in selecting the highest quality photography, an uncanny ability with color separation and creating tints, and is excellent at choosing just the right illustrator to convey the essence of a story. She is also a good manager of people and understands how to work within a budget. I highly recommend Jaye for your graphic design needs.   —Diana Murphy, past Editor of Country Living Gardener Magazine



Thank you for your part in this amazing project. Each of the books is a piece of art. I so appreciate the quality and discerning eye you brought to the work. I hope we have the opportunity to work together again. You are at the top of my list should we need an art director.       —Dorothy Fowler, Pearson Publishing Company

 I loved working with Jaye. I’ll recommend her every chance I get.

Not only is Jaye's design sense brilliant, but she is wonderfully accommodating for content changes, and her turnaround seems close to instantaneous. Could anyone ask for more?  I don’t think so!  —Mitzi Perdue, author
