A Guarantee You Can Trust

When your project comes from Vanessa’s Desk, you can always expect three things:

  1. Personal Service. Since every client I work with has unique needs, every assignment I accept is individually created just for you. You can contact me anytime, day or night, to discuss any idea or concern you might have.
  2. VIP Treatment. I like to give all my clients the little extras and perks that you’d normally only get from a big agency – and then only when you have a big budget.
  3. A Guarantee You Can Trust. Your project becomes my project, and that means my reputation is on the line. I don’t consider your project complete until you are satisfied.
