“Gary is an absolute joy to work with - always smiling, always positive, and just generally a great, reliable partner for getting work done well. He also acted as a wonderful resource to our less experienced/less tenured Production Artists for guidance on best practices and problem solving. He comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and would be a great asset to any team. I hope to work with Gary again some day in the future.”

Dana Nakagawa – Art Supervisor @ Giant Creative Strategy
“Gary Silverstein has been the perfect Production Artist resource for us at Giant over the last several years because of his dependability and his skill set. I can not recommend him highly enough for his technical software skills at creating detail-oriented print mechanicals in Adobe Creative Cloud, layout / type design for all types of digital and print work, beautiful presentation layouts and animations in Powerpoint and Keynote, and interactive layouts for iPad and email.
Having Gary on our team has meant both meeting tight deadlines and offering the best possible work and best solutions to whatever problems arise. His whatever it takes to get it done attitude saves us time and again.”
Steve Dell – Senior Studio Artist @ Giant Creative Strategy
“Gary has proven repeatedly to be an indispensable collaborator through intense launch conditions across a remarkable variety of tactics. His thoughtful and proactive temperament and diplomatic interpersonal style have ensured smooth and consistent results under the most unpredictable circumstances.
In the wide range of work we have shared Gary’s breadth of technical skills has proven invaluable. A master of Adobe Creative Suite apps, his contributions to iPad, email, presentation, and all manner of print and booth projects have shown a very high and always developing level of acumen and productivity. From typography and design stages through final production mechanicals Gary has a process-conscientious command of all aspects of workflow”.
