“Naturally, when we initially hired you for our project, we were pleased to work with an organization actively helping young people develop creative thinking and employment skills. As the process went on and we saw their initial presentations we were impressed with the work that they had put in to the project and the ideas they had come up with. When we wanted to make changes to their initial suggestions, we appreciated how willing and able they were to help incorporate our ideas into the cards. And finally, we love the end result!”
