“Marcus created our company brand look, logo, website, and brochure. He provided valuable insight into branding, style, and content regarding our business. He was very willing to listen to our thoughts and ideas and then use his creative expertise to provide the finished product. We have received very positive feedback on our logo, brochure, and website. I enjoy working with Marcus and plan on using him for additional projects.”

“Thanks to Marcus, the communications materials for my Frankel for Judge campaign were highly professional, appealing and easy to read. His willingness to support my campaign and turn projects around quickly was very much appreciated. In a sea of busy, political ads, mailings and flyers, our materials really stood out.”

He understands the pressures his clients experience and what it takes to meet tight timelines.
