About Us

In mid-2020, we made the difficult decision to no longer continue providing creative services as Upper Notch.

Jacqueline works full time designing in the education realm. Danielle is freelance writing and producing content for various companies.

We also still have our Etsy shop, Upper Notch Press, and Danielle created Just One More, an awesome newsletter with children’s book recommendations. 

Upper Notch was co-founded by lifelong creative partners and sisters Jacqueline and Danielle.

Jacqueline Trimmer, Creative Director

Veteran visual designer Jacqueline approaches each project as an opportunity to do something smart, unique and impactful. With more than a decade of professional design, she has produced award-winning projects for such clients as Scholastic, National Geographic, Silverstein Properties, IMS Health, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Goldman Sachs, and the Rockefeller Foundation.

Danielle Cantor, Chief Copywriter

Copywriter, editor and creative thinker Danielle believes in the power of language to enhance visual designs and inspire, educate, sell, and connect. With degrees in print journalism, English, and publishing, she has worked in essentially every publishing realm and brings multifaceted, big-picture insight to her editorial work. She has written or edited for print and digital publications including WWD, Esquire, Departures, and Pure Wow and worked with ad agencies, marketing and design firms.
