Janet“Van is without question the most creative, energizing, and brilliant communication/marketing/brand visionary I know. She is able to zero in on on a core message and make it sing. She gets whatever the “point-of-pain” your client is experiencing and knows how to speak to it. Her visual acumen has a flair that captures eye and mind at the same time. In addition to being highly talented, she’s fun and entirely pleasurable to work with. I love working with her, pure and simple.”

Mark“What to say about Van? That’s a tall order! Van is a prodigious thinker; one of those rare individuals who can effortlessly fuse creative insight and intuition with razor-edge intellect. Van is as comfortably eloquent with words as she is fluent with the language of visual communication. Succinct, sharp and always sophisticated in everything she does, Van is a true original. In short, I would have no hesitation to recommend her for any creative/branding assignment where big ideas play center stage.”

carol“Van’s Brand Audit opened my eyes to the fact that telling a story about what we do simply isn’t enough – she helped me to realize the power of the story about why we are so passionate about doing it. She was quick to grasp both the opportunities and the challenges our business faces and has inspired me to think differently. Thanks, Van!

Julian“Van is a one-off. Her creative energy is awesome. She has great style. But most importantly she really understands what makes brands tick ­ both on the inside and outside in the market place. When we worked together in Sydney, she was way ahead of the game, so it’s no surprise to me that today she is an acknowledged leader and innovator in the global branding space.”
