The redesign Jennifer completed for trade publication Successful Meetings magazine has brought the magazine up to date in excellent fashion. The publication, not previously under Jennifer's purview, now looks like a classy consumer brand despite being in the traditionally staid B-to-B niche, and provides a compelling visual experience when it lands on the desks of readers.

Rob Carey
Editorial Director, VNU Business Media

When we hired Rufhaus Designs to give us a complete overhaul of the magazine--from logo to layouts--we had no idea what a fabulous effect to our bottom line. Just ask Jennifer to show you a before and after issue of Incentive magazine. New logo, new look. It will blow you away! Advertising is up, and readers love the new look!
