I never once felt like he was trying to leave information out, force opinions or skip steps, in fact it was quite the opposite.

When we needed edits he consulted kindly on the issue and then without the faintest complaint, had the task completed well before anticipated. In fact, it was actually hard to keep up with him! Completely kind hearted, extremely skilled and seasoned. Tom makes the branding and marketing part of company expansion exciting like it is supposed to be! I can’t recommend Tom and MediaWorks enough.”

“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.”
