The launch of TechSoup Canada would not have been the same without Gil's creative leadership. He transformed a rough idea--of showcasing the historical time-line of TechSoup Global during the launch of TechSoup Canada--into an exhibition. The result of Gil's vision was a series of extraordinary, hand-crafted, perfectly displayed--posters. All of the key stakeholders who attended the launch celebration were delighted by the exhibition, and we have plans to display Gil's art permanently at the TechSoup Global headquarters in San Francisco. Donnie Claudinho, Marketing Manager, TechSoup Canada

Gil Martinez was not only a creative and resourceful art director, he also brought wonderful enthusiasm and energy into the entire editorial group. He was probably one of the most liked colleagues by his peers I have known in my nearly 30 years at Yankee. Mel Allen, Editor-in-chief, Yankee Magazine
Working with Gil was one of the best parts of the job. He is talented and creative, eager to tackle new challenges, and was always willing to take on additional work, even when it went beyond his job description. Even better, his broad education and life experience made him a knowledgeable resource on editorial matters. A true team player. Amy Traverso, Food editor, Yankee Magazine
