Envision gets what we’re about. They’ve taken the time to understand who we are, what we’re trying to do and have helped us develop a consistent strategic message. At the same time, they understand how we work. Jeff and his folks are patient, recognize the client is driving the process — not the other way around. Their first project was excellent. In the 6+ years since, the work they’ve done has gotten even better.
As a small organization, we have a limited budget and may not generate as much revenue as other clients. Still, with Envision we’re treated as a priority and given a high level of attention from the entire staff.

The development process was outstanding and as described by Envision prior to the start ofthe project. For a company like ours where budgets are a consideration and having virtually no real understanding of the process it can be daunting. Finding the right company takes a bit of good luck. I feel VERY lucky. You allowed us to work at our own pace. I’m sure that must have been frustrating for you at times; but you never made us feel bad for taking so much time. In between all of the “work”, I enjoyed getting to know you and it made a real impression onme. I’d recommend your company in a heartbeat.
I was so fortunate to have stumbled on to the fine people at Envision Marketing. They not only care about my project as if it were their own, but they also care about me and my foundation. Their industry insight and attention to detail are second to none. I trust them completely to achieve the best results possible.

I began working with Jeff and the team at Envision ten years ago. Their strategic skills are coupled with a fundamental knowledge of how to craft the appropriate marketing message. I am extremely well cared for by the folks at Envision, and I’ve come to appreciate their attention to detail that exceeds my own. Along with extremely positive feedback from colleagues and students on every project the team at Envision has touched, my interactions continue to be an enjoyable learning experience in the nuances of marketing.

Jeff has provided the image for our Harvard program. He is a master of message and style and is generous with his time. He is a man who gets to the core of a mission and practice and is able to craft a visual representation. His team has created the face of a number of our major public events. I can’t recommend them strongly enough.

We sell a complex product into a complex market. Jeff and his team did more than just listen to our needs, they took the time to really understand our business, our market, and how our products addressed the market need. With that, Envision then employed creativity and design in ways we hadn’t even thought of before, and produced deliverables that were nothing short of fantastic. In short, Envision listened, learned, and delivered.”
VP Product Marketing
It was a pleasure working with you on the redesign of The Spirited Gourmet website. I found your firm to be very creative, professional and responsive. While there was a process that we followed it wasn’t process for the sake of process, as some other design firms seemed to promote. You were able to take what we discussed conceptually and bring it to fruition.
Owner, The Spirited Gourmet
I have truly enjoyed working with Envision Marketing and Design on the development of our organization’s new logo. Our work is varied in scope and scale, and we were worried that it would be hard to find a graphic that would represent this diversity. Everything about the way that Envision took us through the process was detailed, thoughtful, and helpful. The final product is sophisticated, bright, and has a character all our own. It has always been a pleasure to meet or pick up the phone, because the response on the other end has always been so friendly, cheerful, and accommodating.
