TESTIMONIALS:

BRAND STRATEGY & GRAPHIC DESIGN

“As a partner in a new company, Rockhound Boring Bits, LLC, our team had the beginnings of a logo and knew the target audience we were going after. I had written the business plan, but knew that I needed help to brand the company and products properly. I turned to Cathy for assistance. Cathy and I have known each other for several years and talked frequently at various networking events. I had heard many good things about her and her work. I called her and asked her for assistance in branding my company. After asking many questions and having me complete a comprehensive questionnaire, Cathy prepared several documents offering some great suggestions on what we could do. One we followed up on immediately and it has become a cornerstone of how we package our product. As we obtain more funds we will certainly engage Cathy to develop and help create a compelling brand look and message. She has my complete confidence and support. You can’t go wrong with her.” Chuck Lee, President, Intelliformance,  www.IntelliformanceSTL.com. Partner, Rockhound Boring Bits, LLC,  www.RockhoundBoring.com

“I found Cathy Davis easy to work with. She listens well, and comes up with great ideas, seemingly effortlessly. The way she presented the cost structure made it easy for us to do a portion of the project before committing to a large expense. As we worked with Cathy, we became more comfortable giving her more work. She so clearly understood our objectives and we could get to a final version without a lot of adjustment time.” Rebecca K.

If you’d like that WOW effect, give Cathy a call.” Dale Furtwengler, www.PricingForProfitBook.com

“Cathy understands how to get underneath what sits on the surface and really understand the landscape of a business (in our case, taking care of kids in need) and the story it needs to tell. She then distills it down to the most essential, salient components and creates messaging and creative that is powerful and enduring.” Kathryn Feldt, Chief Operating Officer, Marygrove,  www.MarygroveChildren.org

“I have worked with Cathy for more than 4 years. I appreciate her timeliness and talent at putting my ideas onto paper in a way that really pops!

Just last week, an attorney called me to ask questions about self-publishing a book, and I simply referred her to Cathy and Jack.” Laura Froemling, author of How to Make Kids Smart & What to Demand of Schools www.HowToMakeKidsSmart.com
