As a principal and founding partner, Gina calculates she has composed several million sentences over the course of her 30+-year career. But she’s much better with words and relationships than numbers. How should verbiage compliment visuals (and visa versa)? Since every project is unique Gina approaches the written dimension with a careful exploration of the client’s story and territory, a survey of the competitive landscape and then an expression of the brand with words that wow. Her favorite type of project is name generation, her favorite game is Scrabble and her favorite authors are Charles Dickens and J.K. Rowling, both Masters of Making Monikers.
