What My Clients are Saying

Peter Bailey, Social Marketing Director, Make Children First.
"I was very impressed with the Make Children First newsletter. I liked the good use of points-of-entry where important subjects were bolded. Headlines were concise, yet still informative so that readers can select the articles that are relevant to them. I was very taken with the columnar design and the use of the banner and footers. It was an excellent product, one that I would be proud to have been associated with. I look forward to updates in the future."
