Dora has been my main point of contact while working with By Storm on their portfolio of fashion websites. In her role as Brand manager she also takes care of By Storm's online presence and she does a great job of handling the creative and technical issues that arise. She's always positive about the challenges of dealing with the challenges of managing multiple brands on multiple sites, and is quick to understand and assess the often complicated scenarios that we come across - from handling design decisions, to content creation and management, to email account headaches. I wish all my clients could be as capable and as pleasant to work with!

I had the pleasure of working briefly with Dora on developing business concepts and was instantly impressed by her attitude and talent - and the speed with which she could visualise creative ideas. Would highly recommend the experience to others.
