Tim and his teams have done everything from logos, visual corporate repackaging, and copy writing, to innovation summits and brand redefinition workshops; as well as engineering programs to tell brand stories through collateral, exhibits, and trade shows. Here are select examples from his health, wellness, science portfolio.
