Cynthia is a brand builder – launching brand initiatives on and off-line with vigour and passion, and maintains an impressive track record in building tools that increase awareness and drive customer engagement.
As a child she spent countless hours drawing, illustrating and sketching; and today, applies that early experience, along with her considerable graphic design experience and training, to develop creative solutions to the business challenges faced by her clients. Cynthia has a rare blend of business insight, finely honed creative instincts, disciplined project management skills, and the ability to partner with clients that often haven’t had much experience with the creative process.
