When I first started April May June Communications seven years ago, it was a scary time in the U.S. economy. Striking out on my own seemed like a really bad idea. Really bad. But I was fueled by a passion for writing and brand development, along with the desire to work with prestigious brands and exciting start-ups on the kinds of projects that thrilled me. I’ve been very lucky to be able to build a thriving business doing what I love, while also working alongside super talented people.
The upside of being busy with work has been taking on a variety of cool projects and meeting folks from around the country (and the world). The downside has been not having enough time to tend to my website, social media, and blogging, which makes me feel like a big old hypocrite. But, as with any brand that wants to grow and experience long-term success, it was important for me to invest in these critical business-building tools.
The new April May June website features the freelance copywriting, graphic design, and event services we provide businesses, while featuring the work that’s made our clients so very happy. The blog aims to cover a mix of branding, writing, business, design, and wildcard topics that we hope will have you visiting from time to time.
I have enormous gratitude for the clients who’ve engaged me to work with them over the years and continue to do so, and the inspiring creatives with whom I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating. And a very special thanks to the generous people who helped me pull everything together and offered me their thoughtful insights. Sarah, Chris, Carmen, Jen, Laura, and Helen: Merci!
