''I recently worked with Désirée on an Amazon show called ''Alex Rider'' and i have nothing but positive things to say about her contribution to the show. She was so organised when things were a little crazy, she had a great eye and was more than happy to be flexible and step in when anything was a little behind. She was so supportive and working with her was an absolute joy and a pleasure. Please feel free to contact me if you need any more details. I would have her on my team if she was UK-based.''
- Tim Dickel, Production Designer UK, 2023.
''Désirée is a hugely talented team player who brings creativity, energy, and a keen eye to the department. She was invaluable with her knowledge and broad skill set and I wouldn't want to be without her working in Malta.''
- Hannah Hill, Production Designer UK, 2022.
''While working with Désirée I was always sure that I can count on her, no matter what- she was always present before anyone else and put hours and energy beyond anyone could ask for. Eager-to-learn and improve her skills at all times, it mattered to her each day that she showed up in full capacity, while always kind and hardworking on the highest level. I dearly hope I get the chance to work with her again in the future.''
-Janka Erdely, Art Director, Hungary, 2022.
