Client Work

I’m so lucky to work with such great people, to team up with and provide whatever skill set is needed to achieve the identified goal, whether to provide clear information, improve usability, increase sales or all of the above.

For new businesses that can involve helping to establish a unique identity with branding, product design, marketing plans and strategies.

For established businesses it can be a refresh to reach out to more clients.

For technical firms and government agencies that can mean taking dense material and making it understandable to the general public. My RFPs and RFQs have a 100% success rate, knock on wood!
