"Working with Maren Wickwire and Manifest Media was a dream. Not only did Maren dedicate herself to the work and the project, but her ideas greatly added to the original concept we had.
She showed deep dedication to the content of our project, and worked tirelessly to realize our vision. The final product is wecameback.org. We are looking for ways to continue to work with Manifest Media. I cannot recommend them highly enough!"
Jocelyn Kelly, Director, Women in War Program Harvard Humanitarian Initiative

"Maren's work is absolutely excellent in design, editing, graphics and many other things! She is incredibly collaborative, responsible, and creative. She understands large concepts and small details and cares about all of them - and she makes hard work seem fun. I would like to work with her forever!

“I came to Manifest Media looking for a logo and business cards for my start up company. I couldn’t be more pleased with the final product. Maren went to great lengths to make sure she fully understood what I was looking for, and created something better than I could have imagined.
She was so thorough she had a perfect logo the first go around. I couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience. ”
