It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s that time of year again: the last crisp leaf of Autumn is almost ready to tumble from its tree, the frosty mornings are getting ever more frequent and thoughts begin to turn to all things festive. I am getting into the spirit by having some business Christmas cards designed* to send to friends, colleagues and clients.

      I’m glad you like the cards – you will be receiving one 🙂

      In terms of gifts, I think it’s a great opportunity for a bit of client education, so I *love* your idea to give Found in Translation to clients. I really enjoyed the book, so I’m sure it will shine a much-deserved light on our profession.
