PowerFrameworks was the first online library of downloadable conceptual graphics and came into being as a means of sharing the production graphics used by Kathy Villella as she supported her freelance clients.
Lisa is cofounder of PowerFrameworks and is responsible for the development and operations of the PowerFrameworks website. She is also involved with the development and refinement of many of the more complex frameworks and conceptual graphics. Lisa has 28 years of graphic and layout design experience and 21 years of website development experience. Lisa is also co-owner of Digital Mirrors, a graphic design and website development company.
Now retired, Kathy was an original cofounder of PowerFrameworks and was primarily responsible for the site content: framework selection and development and the educational materials. She has provided presentation-development support since 1986. Kathy supported client engagement teams and supervised and trained team support at McKinsey & Company, Inc., for nearly 15 years and has supported world-class firms as a freelancer since 1993. At first, Kathy's clientele was comprised of exiting McKinsey consultants, but has grown over the years through referrals.
