Dr. Ronald Strahan has a heart for fixing little children’s cleft palates! It was an honor and a privilage to design his logo for him. Next I’m working on the brochure for them to hand out. The sole mission of the CRISP Foundation is to provide health care and education to underprivileged children of the world.
A child born with a cleft lip or cleft palate does not simply face aesthetic challenges, but serious congenital defects affecting their ability to drink, eat, hear and even breathe. The children of Guatemala are in desperate need of the CRISP Foundation’s (CRISP) surgical and health care services. CRISP Foundation has performed over 1400 surgeries; barely scratching the surface of the tens of thousands who need surgery. We also provide additional medical care and surgery for other congenital anomalies and/or correctable injuries. All surgeries and medical care are free of charge.
Won’t you please help CRISP provide Guatemalan children the urgent medical care they need? The cost of surgery for one child is only $250 and all donations are tax deductible. Your heart can make them smile, so please don’t wait. Donate and help sponsor a child’s surgery today!

Dr. Ralph Umbriaco specializes in clearing people of allergies through alternative wellness care, as well as, chiropractic. Ralph personally likes very clean designs with lots of white space. Fortunately, this is how I naturally like to design!
It was a blast designing a logo and flier for the Mariners Church 20’s and 30’s singles group ski trip. I love challenging myself to see how fast I can design things… This definitely took the record!
Terry Tigner, has been a client of mine for quite some time. Combining sales and marketing savvy with technical and operations know-how, Terry has grown sales, profits and shareholder value for startup companies, industry leaders

Laura Lee, with Prospect Mortgage Company, asked me to design a newsletter template for a monthly mailer. Laura Lee loved the design!
MDCI has been a very special client of mine for over 13 years. MDCI stands for Medical Device Consultant Inc. and is based out of Boston. Last year I was able to give them a complete company “face lift” with an all new brand. Everything changed including logo, stationary, trade-show booth, brochures, direct mail pieces, ads, and finally website. What a huge difference. Below is the brochure cover and the trade-show banner series.
Compact Clinical publishes books and articles on mental illness. With a very small budget and just a logo, I created a booth graphic using several images purchased off of istockphoto. Along with the booth design, I created 4 posters, a banner, and an eight page brochure all with the same branding. It was a very rewarding project to say the least. I was told that the booth helped facilitate Compact Clinicals being “noticed” at the show…which led to the company ultimately being sold to Jones and Bartlett Publishers.
Dan Sussman owner of Seven 4 One hotel in Laguna Beach hired me to design this ad for the Riviera Magazine May issue. Next time you’re in Laguna Beach check out this Hotel. It’s one of the only all green hotels in the area, very modern and very upbeat. You’ll love it. It takes a lot of work and money to make a hotel green! Thanks Dan for doing all the hard work it takes to help our environment and community!
It was important for CU Mortgage to stand out at the convention with bold graphics and message for the exhibit booth. For this tradeshow booth image, I combined 4 different photos to create the desired message: the sky, grass, flying money, and red house photo. I also designed a brochure to match the booth that was displayed on the podium counter. Laure Lee Brown, owner of CU Mortgage, commented on how “wonderful” the conference went and how much attention CU Mortgage received.

Logo design is the most important part of a company brand. A logo needs to be simple enough to stick in someone’s mind. If it’s too complicated or average unfortunately people won’t remember it. It was such a pleasure to work with Christian Brantley on designing the Women Helping Women logo. I came up with several successful designs and they fell in love with this one. He took the logo and is now running with it to design and produce all the other promotional pieces. Woman Helping Woman is non-profit organization that trains woman, clothes them in business clothes, and walks them through the interview process until they have successfully received employment.
Sherry Robinson has wanted her own website for quite sometime. She didn’t want to feel locked down to a certain company or have to pay the high monthly fees that goes along with it. Now she has the flexibility to move to any real estate company she wants without having to re-establish a new site (website in not active at this time).
Our company, Compact Clinicals, hired Glenda in 2007 to design a comprehensive branding project for our booth at the American Psychiatric Association’s international annual meeting. Glenda not only designed a fascinating booth display, but she also designed several pieces of printed materials including posters, banners and a catalog – all in coordination with the overall theme. The results were stunning! We were able to reach far more customers than ever before and we had one of the best looking booths at the show. Several other vendors complimented us on our booth and even asked us who did our design work. Due in part to Glenda’s excellent creative work, our company was first “noticed” at that show by a larger publishing company, Jones and Bartlett. In 2008, Jones and Bartlett acquired Compact Clinicals. We continue to use Glenda’s design for our booth to this day. Glenda is passionate about her work, highly professional, punctual and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend Glenda’s services to anyone who is looking to take their branding projects to the next level! March 16, 2009
