"Mara is top notch. First, she's a very talented designer– top talent in our UK office, widely regarded by our design leaders worldwide. She's very organized – fantastic attention to detail without losing sight of the big picture. And she's always, always a pleasure to work with – mature and comfortable working through conflict, always looking for a win-win solution. She's been quick to earn everybody's trust and respect. If you have the chance to work with Mara Goes, consider yourself lucky."

"Mara is not just a designer by trade, she’s a designer by instinct. A true people person, Mara has a genuine warmth and sense of fun that is infectious and makes working with her feel like hanging out with a friend. This naturally relaxed manner combined with her incredible work ethic means she makes managing large-scale global projects with dozens of stakeholders look deceptively easy. The passion and dedication that everyone claims they have but rarely possess, Mara has by the bucket-load."

"Mara's always been a talented designer, and in my time with her, she's also blossomed into a fearless design leader. I would jump at any opportunity to work with Mara again, she is hungry, spongy, and an absolute pleasure to be around."
WW Creative Director, PayPal
"Mara is highly respected as a creative expert, project lead, collaborator and team player. I was pleased to promote Mara while she reported to me to celebrate her success as the leading force behind a multi-country website redesign. She is adept at leading complex global projects in a matrixed, fast-paced environment where there are multiple stakeholders and conflicting requirements to juggle. Mara makes it look easy when in fact it is incredibly difficult to achieve what she delivers every day."
