"Marcia did an excellent job researching the product with our product marketing managers and creating fresh words on a technology that she had very little understanding of at the start of the process. She met her deliverables on time, within budget, and with no fuss. We had very few, if any, edits to her initial drafts. Marcia is also great to work with - she mixes well with everyone, has great patience, and goes with the flow."

Website Project Highlights

Writing website copy and marketing materials.Working with Eddie Hofmeister of Hofmeister Design and client Total Logistics, Inc., I assisted in developing website navigation and wrote 5 websites in a major rebranding and corporate initiative for this group of logistics companies, including dedicated fleets; shipping/trucking brokerage; warehousing and supply chain IT and software solutions provider.

Writing and editing website copy as the copywriter for a re-branding and website relaunch working with a virtual team: client Phil Kluesner of Gannett Peak Partners, Jean Kindem of Jean Kindem Design and Terry Barth of Terry Barth Design.

My role involved developing copy based on brand attributes and to the new design features of a Parallax-enabled website. The project team brainstormed for a theme and determined the choice of the Parallax scrolling design for the home page and remaining site navigation. Terry built the site to design and functional specifications. Jean designed the logo, business system and website while shaping the user experience. My contributions included:

  • Re-purposing and rewriting content, including substantive edits.
  • Fine tuned the structure for the new site map (primary and secondary navigation)
  • Developed ideas and made recommendations to client for copy structure, call-outs and ways to highlight key messaging to differentiate Phil's unique brand and consulting practice on the page
