“Tom Trussell and MediaWorks designed many product cut-sheets for Toshiba as well as a brochure, ads and large format banners. Tom is a true professional with a “can do” attitude. We found him to be creative, experienced and dedicated to delivering whatever we needed to market Toshiba’s Technorainbow LED Video Screen products.

“MediaWorks has led the branding and communication efforts for Serendipity Center for years. It is Tom’s ability to deeply understand our mission that allowed him to create a visual presence for our agency that’s compelling and completely congruent with our values and our work. He defined our brand and then helped us expand it through the creation of special project logos and collateral. Tom has created all our publications (annual reports, handbooks, fact sheets, invitations, programs, and brochures), ads, and signage, creating an established look and feel of which our students, faculty, board, and donors are consistently proud. His design of our new website has invited the community to clearly understand and engage with Serendipity in important ways. Tom is collaborative with our board and staff, accommodating, entirely dependable, an excellent value, and a trusted resource for all our marketing needs.”

“I met Tom on a contract performance apparel project for the Sport’s Marketing Department of the footwear company in Portland. We had a challenging time line to pull together the graphic concept that the client was calling for. We were using a digital dye sublimated application as far as depth and texture and Tom was able to come through for the project team. Tom was very professional and creative, I would look forward to working with him again.”

“For years, I have worked with MediaWorks through my current employer on various projects from one-sheets to trade show displays. Every one was completed on-time, on-budget, and has hit the target. Tom really knows what he’s doing and you can tell he really cares.
      Recently, I created a start-up business in sports photography. MediaWorks designed a website for me that exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. Tom was creative, attentive to my needs and always willing to make any changes requested. If you are looking for any kind of visual communications, don’t hesitate to contact them; they’re sure to help you hit your target too.”

“It has been my distinct pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Tom Trussell and his organization MediaWorks while serving as Secretary for Battle for the Bridge. Battle for the Bridge is a 501c3 non profit organization that seeks to find and fund a cure for Cystic Fibrosis through organized athletic contests between the West Linn and Oregon City communities. When we approached Tom about helping us make a visual statement and craft a brand for our fledgling organization Tom, without hesitation, agreed.
      Having served in the print and visual communication industry for 10 years, I can honestly say I have worked with few professionals who approach Tom’s talent and creative insight. His design was on point and exactly what we as an organization were looking for. Having an identity for our organization was a very important early goal and Tom delivered. Tom also provided a tremendous amount of professionalism and creativity to our other visual communications, from web graphics to print. His enthusiasm, talent and willingness to help has been a tremendous asset to Battle for the Bridge and we are greatly appreciative.
      It is without hesitation that I recommend Tom and his organization to anyone looking to elevate their visual communications in a very crowded marketplace, you will not regret it.”
