Service Description

The husband and wife team of Richardson Ideaworks brings together a cluster of skills in research, marketing, advertising, freelance writing, graphic design and more.

Together we hold graduate degrees in business, journalism and philosophy, and Erik is pursuing graduate work in educational psychology. Our backgrounds include a combined 35+ years in teaching, management, publication design, and communications.

In addition to the skill sets mentioned above, we also bring some strengths and specialized knowledge from particular sectors to the table, including employee benefits, health insurance, health care, and personal wellness.

Smart solutions, creative thinking, and the ability to assess and transform complex ideas into "a-ha!" moments are our specialties.

We are passionate about clear, engaging writing. We can adjust our writing style to match the job, whether you need punchy consumer copy or a more formal style.

We feel that graphic design is as important to communicating the message as word choice is. Illustrations, layout, font, and color should be used to engage and communicate, not just decorate.

Finally, we feel our primary job is to make sure your needs are 100% met. We will communicate with you, keep you updated on your project, and meet or exceed your deadlines to make sure you look good to your stakeholders.
