Artisanal Branding

Each fall my grandparents would remind me that they met on the dance floor at their local grange. The refreshments were cider and donuts.

Wanna write a book?  Don’t forget your Sherpa! When asked the other day what Epiphany offers that’s a bit unique to other creative agencies, I responded, “We’re also your Book Sherpa.”  After a moment with a blank stare, my colleague laughed out loud and said, “That’s been on my to-do list.
