I helped Piedmont HomeHealth, based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, promote their services by designing a logo and writing and designing two brochures—one to promote nursing services and the other to describe the Bath Plus program to assist with the tasks of daily living.

If problems arise, we stand ready to resolve them to your complete satisfaction.
