"I have contracted Ulrike many times over the years -- for ABC and then for E! Entertainment Television and Style Network. She never fails to respond with extremely inventive and fresh ideas for network brands and campaigns. In addition, Ulrike's enthusiasm and joy about design and animation are truly infectious."

Lauraine Gibbons,
Creative Director and Producer at Style TV and E!

"I am a huge fun of the work Ulrike does! She is so passionate about art and design and this shows in the work she creates. With excellent typography, aesthetic, and color, she is able to put her personal unique spin to all she creates. I highly recommend her!”

Reuben Lee,
Creative Director at E!

"Ulrike Kerber is one of the most creative and talented professionals in the broadcast industry. Her unique take on design, mastery of technology and willingness to explore a variety of solutions put her "top of the list" when it comes to creative direction. It's been a pleasure working with Ulrike and wholeheartedly recommend this incredibly capable person.”

Sam Shoeman,
Regional Sales Director at C4 Distro

"Ulrike is one of the few visual artists I’ve had the pleasure to work with who consistently take brand design to the next level. Viva’s visual concepts are consistently fresh, vibrant and memorable.
I polled my team and asked them to pick a few words that sum up you and your work. They came back with ‘enthusiastic,’ ‘tenacious,’ ‘talented,’ ‘hip’ and (my favorite) ‘visual virtuoso.’ We look forward to our next collaboration."

Dean Noble,
Executive Director at Elings Park Foundation

"It was a pleasure to work with VivaDesign. Ulrike was extremely attentive to learning about our work and the message we were hoping to communicate. She was open and responsive to our input and we are pleased with the result. Her work provided a creative infusion that inspired us to be bolder in our other materials.”

Megan Miley,
Design Director at The Legacy Group

"If you could harness the energy of a thousand brilliant creatives, place it in a bottle and shake it up and down really hard - then roll it out on a table to discover what truly unique ideas prevail, then you may come close to the sheer wonder of what Ulrike creates. The beautiful thing about working with Ulrike on projects (besides her incredibly easy and contagious spirit for life) is that you can be 110% certain that her ideas are always innovative, fresh and push the boundaries in wonderful ways. As we grow up many of us lose the ability to tap into the untainted perspective we have as children, and I am certain Ulrike's innate ability to remain connected to this perspective is where many of her best ideas originate from. She is not boxed in by what people 'think or expect' from a project - or what society might push her in the direction of - she literally sees each and every client and project in its own light and then brings that to life in the most amazing way. I would hire Ulrike and/or collaborate with her anytime the opportunity presents. A rare creative talent and brilliant individual - she will not disappoint! ”

Pia Dorer,
Executive director at Orange Identity (Agency)
