Emanuela Guzzon, owner of Franky 's Cultured Veggies, was born and raised in Padua, Italy and moved to Santa Barbara in 1997. She learned about the health benefits of cultured vegetables from Francis Jansen. Cultured Vegetables are an incredible super food and once you eat them weekly you won't be able to do without them! All organic veggies are purchased at the Santa Barbara Farmer's Market weekely, they are made twice a week and they are Delicious and so good for you!


"Gordon|sterling has been my graphic designer for nearly fifteen years. The logo & designs she created in the beginning have helped tremendously in branding my name & product. She has kept the look consistent, yet fresh. She can take my ideas and create something better than I imagined. I have learned the designs far exceed my expectations if I offer very little structure and just let her do her magic!
—Pamela Madison, Founder, WSC

"Valerie combines the perfect mix of skill and intuition to all of our projects. It seems like even when we don't know what we want, she always does. Although design can so often be a painful process, Valerie makes it enjoyable. She quickly provides actionable design options and turns them around, creating final and beautifully executed products for use for all of our marketing needs, from large posters and banners to complex brochures
and web design."
—Jonathan Humfrey Manager,
Operations & Customer Relations,
Mosaic Networking

"I spent years trying to communicate concepts for a logo to various artists and graphic designers. Although they were all very talented, it was not until I met with Valerie that I was able to move forward with a logo to brand Return To Freedom, American Wild Horse Sanctuary’. Return To Freedom has become a leading resource for Wild Horse education and conservation. Whether it is packaging for a DVD or posters for events, Valerie creates the artwork which speaks for one of our Nation’s greatest treasures, The American Mustang."
—Neda DeMayo, Founder, RTF

"For more than seven years, Gordon-Sterling Design has crafted Arbor Services image. Clients and colleagues consistently praise our logo, website, and marketing materials. Valerie’s ideas are fresh, yet functional and always exceed my expectations. In a competitive business market, Gordon-Sterling Design continues to help my tree company thrive. Thank you Valerie!"
—Karen Christman, Owner/Certified Arborist, Arbor Services

“We’ve worked with Val for over 10 years on a wide variety of projects and have consistently found her work to be exceptional. She understands how to bring a project to life, responding to feedback and producing the final results we need. On top of her great work, she has a positive and energetic approach, making her a pleasure to work with!"
—Matt Walton, Marketing Manager, InfoGenesis

"Val always makes me look good. She has always been a pleasure to work with, and the end result speaks for itself. I always include her on every new start up project I work on without hesitation. She is a creative with a keen sense of marketing and has good big picture vision. From company logo and initial branding, to advertising, collateral, trade show booths, t-shirts, hats, pens, mugs, posters, sides of busses, and billboards, she gets how it all needs to work together. Love that about her, nothing too big or small, it all gets the same attention to detail and will all have the same flair."
—Suzanne Mayeur

"For the past ten years Valerie has translated my various ideas, notions and concepts into everything from corporate identity packages, promotional literature, advertisements, product pakaging and just recently a corporate website. All for a number of different companies in the global, commercial agriculture industry where the nature of the business was often completely foreign to her. In each case, she has consistently been able to grasp my concepts and produce exceptional, effective results that were used all over the world. In my current position as marketing lead for ISG, a group of niche market R&D companies owned by Monsanto Co. she was responsible for the development of a corporate image that Monsanto corporate has directed each of the ISG member companies to integrate into their own individual company images. It is these kind of results that have and will continue to keep Valerie as my first choice for any type of marketing/graphic project, no matter what the size or scope.
—Larry Kampa, Marketing Lead, ISG

"To say that Valerie is a great graphic artist is an understatement. She has been a key element in the marketing and branding of Aqua nail bars. She intuitively translates my ideas into any marketing element quickly. I can not imagine my business being as successful as it is without having had her be my graphic artist!"
—Claudia Cordova Papa, owner,
Aqua nail bar & Boutique
