“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” – Isaiah 60:1
My mission is to BRIGHTEN my little corner of the world…
and to help you brighten yours because…
The world needs more light and goodness!
As a Visual Marketing Specialist, I help authors, speakers and bloggers SHINE brighter, both offline and online…
because you have an important message that the world needs to hear (and see.)
I can help your message stand out and reach more people, by taking your beautiful written and oral messages and making them beautiful, visually…
unique, yet congruent with your brand and style.
Because, let’s face it, we live in a predominantly visual world, (due in part to the fact that visuals are processed 60,000X faster than text.)
Think about the posts that catch your attention in your Facebook news feed. I bet they are the ones with images or videos right?
It makes sense. You stop scrolling when your eye catches something visually appealing among a sea of text alone status updates.
A recent forbes article discusses how the idea of visual marketing works….
“…the world is awash in words and we found that a “word only” approach was not enough. In order to get into minds today, you also need a visual.
