Don’t just take my word for it. Here are some very kind words of support from a few terrific folks I’ve worked with.
LISA KITTREDGE LinkedIn for Tim As some know, Mike Kittredge suffered a stroke in late 2012 which profoundly affected his ability to speak. His former wife Lisa Kittredge and I collaborated on many events and marketing projects in recent years, including the launch of “Sounds of Recovery,” a new not-for-profit entity.

STEVE WILLIAMS LinkedIn for Tim Steve Williams was my primary supervisor during Yankee Candle’s big buildup in the 90’s. He offers a strong rundown on many of the Yankee-related projects and promotional/marketing/branding campaigns I worked on there. He also continues to serve as a part-time wholesale operations consultant to Kringle Candle and is familiar with my role in the launch and operations of that company plus its affiliate restaurant/brand, The Farm Table.(Please click text link above to download letter)
EMILY RICH LinkedIn for Tim Emily and her former husband established Tea Guys. They sought my marketing advice and we ended up collaborating on everything from a total company re-branding, to a full revamping of their marketing vision, to a physical uprooting of the business allowing them to include brick-and-mortar retailing.

This portfolio is filled with his work, and whether or not this stuff convinces you about any of MY abilities, I certainly hope it demonstrates what a wonderful, flexible and talented designer John is. Because dammit, he sure is. (Please click text link above to download letter)
MICHELE GOLDBERG LinkedIn for Tim Michele Brittelli Goldberg and I – along with her boss GSCVB President Mary Kay Wydra – have worked together on many marketing and communications projects for the Greater Springfield Convention and Visitors Bureau.
