TONY SADOWSKI, Promotion Producer
WHYY, PBS PHILADELPHIA

“Carla's excellent work has done more than make my promos stand out. Sure, she's made my work look a lot better than I could ever have hoped to pull off alone. Her touch, however, is also obvious in almost all aspects of our on-air look, and the design aesthetic she brought to WHYY has taken the station leaps and bounds further than it was before she started. Carla has, almost single-handedly, dragged it kicking and screaming into something resembling other modern, current TV stations. The consistency and high quality of her animations, carefully-planned show packages, set designs, logos and countless other items she cranks out endlessly under high demand are truly impressive. If you want an designer who can truly take your ideas to another level and dependably deliver clean, engaging and professional work, look no further. Carla's it!”


ALEXIS LANDIS,
Content Production Associate
WHYY, PBS PHILADELPHIA

“Carla is one of the most talented graphic and television animation designers I have encountered. She is incredibly creative, but efficient and professional.”


RACHEL McCRYSTAL, Major Gifts Manager
BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SOCIETY

“Carla has completed a few projects for me -- both graphic design and video editing. I can't say enough good things about her and the quality of her work. She's creative, dedicated, and wonderful to work with. As I work in the field of companion animal sheltering and rescue, it's a bonus that Carla is very involved with animal issues and knowledgeable. If I have a project, I'd love to work with her again.”


DARA LOVITZ, Author
MUZZLING A MOVEMENT

“Carla created a great website for me. From design to programming, the website was excellently prepared; I receive compliments on it all the time.”


JOHN MUSSONI,
Managing Editor/Executive Producer
WHYY, PBS PHILADELPHIA

“I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Carla in 3 different Philadelphia television stations. She first arrived at WTXF-Fox at a time of great expansion and change. She quickly adapted and was a big part of the artistic direction taken at the station. A few years later we both were at the Comcast network, CN8, where Carla and I would brainstorm over different design elements in the programs run on the multi-state regional network. Then to my surprise, Carla and I started within weeks of each other at WHYY, PBS for Philadelphia/Wilmington. Carla is able to balance many projects large and small. She is approachable and gives her producers the expertise they need to move forward with the look of their pieces/shows. I highly recommend Carla and would be happy to answer any questions about her work.”


MARIANNE BESSEY, Director

ED COFFIN, Chief Marketing Officer

“Carla has done excellent and timely work for Peace Advocacy Network! She has volunteered countless hours of her time. I have also hired Carla to create the logo for my for-profit company, Ann Payne's Caveman Foods, LLC. Her work on our logo has taken our branding a long way over the past two years!” 


CORINA GETTIS,

“Carla is probably one of the most hard working people I've ever worked with. She's passionate about design and gives each and every one of her projects full attention. She's incredibly personable and easy going and very easy to talk to. Her work speaks for itself and her talent and years of experience definitely show in her pieces. In addition to her design skills, Carla in well versed in the software and technology side of her job. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carla for a second, anyone that works with her is lucky to have her on their team.”

CHRIS WOLF,
VP Programming and Creative Services
WTXF, FOX PHILADELPHIA

“There just are not enough words in the dictionary to adequately describe Carla and her depth of talent. She was a key member of our design team and the backbone of our morning show graphics efforts working the very early morning shift for a television station located in one of American's largest cities (and never late btw). Always positive and under control in a highly stressful environment. A keen eye for design and the ability to translate that vision into reality on the screen or on paper. And a trusted, loyal employee willing to do what was needed whenever duty called. Every manager has those very few individuals they look back on and consider among their best hires for any number of reasons. Carla is one of those for me. I can't count those number of reasons but there are tons of them. If you're looking do yourself a favor, and look at Carla. When you hire her you will be in the position of saying the same thing one day.” 


JOSH KOTZEN, Promotions Manager
WTXF, FOX PHILADELPHIA

“What can be said about Carla? She is the ULTIMATE artist. She is passionate enough to break new ground while at the same time practical enough to turn her ideas into reality. Her work always exceeds expectations and beats deadlines. The highest quality...the utmost creativity...Carla is an absolute pleasure to work with and brings bucketfuls of style, sensibility, diversity and flexibility to any project or team on which she works. No matter the medium, television, print, web, outdoor...when it comes to design needs, Carla is the best person for the job, every time.”


MAX NEGIN, Promotions Producer
WTXF, FOX PHILADELPHIA

“I have worked in several production environments throughout my career, but rarely have I met someone with the creativity, thoughtfulness and dedication of Carla Mijlin. She was a joy to work with because not only did she bring considerable skill to her position, she also understood the collaborative nature of television and how it was important to lead when necessary as well as take direction when appropriate. If you need someone with a good aesthetic eye, a desire to get the job done no matter the time or effort, I would highly recommend her without any hesitation.”


GINNY LASCO, Design Director/Principal
MOUNTAIN LAKE MULTIMEDIA

“Carla is a rarity, both in the realm of her creativity AND personality. She possesses a talent that is continuously on the cutting edge and consistently clean, beautiful and well-crafted. I was able to delegate ANY project to Carla knowing i didn't need to look over her shoulder. I knew the final outcome would be spectacular!! She is an outstanding artist as well as an extremely loyal and hard working employee. She's able to guide and lead other artists as she is naturally gifted in this regard. She's a wonderful teacher. She's willing, and does, put in very long hours, if need be, to make a project flawless....and they always are!! Saying that she is a pleasure to work with is an understatement. On a personal level, she is humble, loyal, caring, compassionate and genuine. You'd be extremely hard pressed to find another Carla.”


STEPHEN PLUNKETT, Design Director
WTXF, FOX PHILADELPHIA

“Carla is one of the most inspired and creative designers that I've come across in my years in the business. Carla bring a fresh and innovative touch to everything she does whether it be design for web, broadcast or print...she can do it all. Dedicated and hard working Carla has one more ace up her sleeve. She's a fantastic person. Carla's spirit and positive energy allows her to work effectively in even the most difficult situations. I can recommend Carla without hesitation...she's simply the best.
