Wordsmith Extraordinaire

Val loves words. He lives, breathes, dreams, and eats them. (OK, maybe he doesn’t actually eat them. But you get the picture.) He understands that good copy does more than just deliver a message, it connects with the reader through a strong, memorable, distinctive voice that says, “Hey—you gotta hear this!” And with more than a decade of professional writing experience, spanning everything from retail to health care to higher education, Val can help you craft the type of copy that will get you heard above the herd, so to speak.

Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our clients have to say about us.

It’s perfect!! I absolutely love it! I know I’ve said it before, but I just don’t know how you can take an abstract thought that really has no basis to it and form it into the perfect logo/poster/color scheme to be exactly what it needs to be and better than anything imagined!)

Adrienne BarnesBeaver HealthMart

Cassie is an extremely reliable and creative graphic designer who is always able to translate an idea into a high quality visual product.

Jennifer SizemoreDirector, Recruitment & RetentionGirl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania

As a freelancer, I often feel as if I’m moving in 12 different directions in how I communicate with potential customers and clients—almost like wearing an outfit that doesn’t quite match!

Cassie has helped me to streamline my delivery by pulling together all the unique nuances of my business into one common theme. I am thankful, and relieved, for now I feel more polished and professional in my approach.

I hired Cassie to design the website for my new business, Wonderaddo, LLC. I am incredibly pleased with the finished product and with the collaboration throughout the process. Cassie’s positive, can-do attitude is refreshing and her dedication to the project was obvious. Cassie understood my vision for the website and she brought it to life in a timely, efficient manner.

Mandy YokimOwnerWonderaddo

I have recommended Cassie to multiple clients of mine for a variety of work. All of those clients were pleased with the quality of work, timely completion and overall cost. Cassie’s great work has made it very easy for me to continue passing her on to my customers, and will hopefully lead to a long-term partnership.

Cassie has designed my logo, business cards and various promotional materials. She is detail-oriented and cost effective. I HIGHLY recommend Brkich Design!

Richard Russ, LMT (OH, PA)OwnerRuss Medical and Sport Massage ClinicBeaver, PA

I hired Cassie to design a template for my Constant Contact email marketing program. She did a remarkable job and her design stayed true to my brand. She made every effort to make sure the template met my expectations and specifications and she followed up with me after the job was completed to survey my satisfaction. I recommend her for anyone looking for web designs whether for websites or other applications. Though I have not used her services for printed media I have also witnessed her work in print and feel confident in recommending this service as well. Her creativity and expertise shows in anything she does.

Suzanne YoderPresident & OwnerHearWell Center

So many times, I have been truly amazed by the work done by Brkich Design Group! Not only do they format our municipal newsletters, but they make the ads so attractive that they jump off the page. They are so creative! Most times, our advertisers give us very mundane ad copy. In spite of that,  Brkich Design Group makes a silk purse out of a sow’s ear!
