What People Say

It’s been such a pleasure working with you these past years – both for all that you’ve been able to help us to, and much more importantly, for the kindness and care you have demonstrated in how you operate.
Leigh Rosenberg
Minnesota Housing Partnership
I don’t know whether it’s unprecedented, but it can’t have happened often that a report and brochure receives a standing ovation. That’s what happened yesterday at our board meeting. Your work was applauded, loudly and long. Thank you for understanding us so well, and helping us say who we are and what we do in a way that is so appealing.
Patrick Henry
The WFS educational campaign not only won an interregional award, it worked so well that a series of meetings planned for further training was cancelled because they were not needed. Thanks for your good design and fast turnaround.

I want to complement the design, functionality and easy of use of the City of Woodbury website. I am a Silicon valley veteran (relocated to Woodbury) and I have to say that the website and the taxonomy are very well done.
