“I was fortunate to work with Bill for eight years on a variety of projects from branding, to event materials and educational program material design. He is thoughtful in his approach ensuring there is a cohesive look which adheres to the brand standard, yet managing to make each piece unique so the overall look never seems stale or cliché. Each piece stands creatively on each own yet, when assembled together, clearly represent the brand image he created. Bill is a true creative partner working with you and offers his creative ideas across the board. I highly recommend Bill. Our organization benefited greatly from his talents.”
