“A Truthful Evaluation of Yourself Gives Feedback for Growth and Success”
― Brenda Johnson Padgitt

If you’re looking for amazing creative work at a very reasonable price, consider Michelle Greene and the team at Rough & Ready Media. I recently asked her to consult with a local nonprofit on a project and (as expected) she went above and beyond and produced exceptional results. I enthusiastically recommend her! I’d be thrilled to discuss my recommendation further — just drop me an email or give me a call. (941) 556-7102.

The process of working with Rough & Ready Media resulted in three key takeaways I am delighted to share with others: peace of mind; the experience of wonderful, responsive service; and, superb expertise. The quality of our primary campaign communication piece gets voters’ attention and we are continuing to work with the R&R team on new materials as we head into the General Election. I highly recommend Michelle and team — and do!

— Jacqueline Moore, Candidate, North Port City Commission, Seat 4

Michelle has exceptional technological skills. She is also easy to communicate with, relate with and has a positive personality. When we are together, no matter how intense the work is, she has the ability to make me laugh.

Rough & Ready Media came to our rescue after our previous designers had let us down. Rough & Ready delivered several design ideas within a very tight timeline — of which all were strong contenders for the final design. I was impressed by how quickly they showed a good understanding of our company and what we needed. Throughout the project we were given excellent care and guidance — they were quick, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and professional. If you need someone to be guided on industry standards and trends, I would highly recommend Rough & Ready Media.

Rough & Ready Media is a professional that goes above and beyond the minimum of what is contracted. They ensure that the client (in this case, us!) is satisfied and happy with the final product. They probed us before beginning, to make sure they understood exactly what we wanted. More importantly, they continually pointed out options to improve our site that we were not even aware were available. Rough & Ready Media has stayed in touch and continues to suggest improvements. We have signed them onto a continued engagement and couldn’t be more pleased.

Not only is Michelle skilled at everything she touches, she intuitively knows what you want — it’s like she could read my mind about what I wanted to accomplish with my music website, Pauseandplay.com. Her design work on the site was way beyond my expectations. She’s a pleasure to work with. I’ve already recommended her to others.

Michelle is a professional, highly-talented graphic designer who delivers high quality material at a relatively low cost. She is friendly, honest and offers excellent service. When I used her in a recent project she not only provided precisely what I had asked her for, but also provided additional high quality services at no extra cost which benefited my work and the promotion of it greatly. I would have no hesitation using her again and would recommend her to anyone requiring design work to promote any kind of creative project.

— James Prescott, Writer & Author

First off, Michelle was the Assitant Managing Editor for Design (that may not be the exact title) when we worked together at the Herald-Tribune. As a designer she’s innovative, as a manager, detail-oriented and effective. Since then, I’ve gone to Michelle for logo design work — it’s amazing and made a habit of using services of businesses she’s worked with. Again, amazing results. I wholeheardedly recommend Rough & Ready.

— Earle Kimel, Sarasota Community News Editor at Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Michelle is a skilled, intelligent and personable computer expert. She raised my website out of the doldrums, and she has been extremely helpful in publicizing my novel “Ride a Bright and Shining Pony, a tragic love story that takes place in 1963 on the day of M.L. King’s March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

For the last two years I’ve been considering moving my blog to a WordPress website. But the thought of designing my own site was overwhelming. Rough & Ready Media came highly recommended by an author friend of mine. From our first conversation, Rough & Ready Media communicated a desire to produce a website that would not only meet my needs as a writer and speaker today; but will continue to grow with me as my services and products expand. Professional and hard working, Rough & Ready Media made sure I was involved in every step of the process — from creation to implementation. I couldn’t be happier with the website Rough & Ready Media designed for me! If you’re launching a new site or giving your old site a facelift, look no further than Rough & Ready Media.

Michelle Greene’s list of skills only begin to unveil the deep well of talent available to those seeking direction from her for their promotion and design. She is imaginative, thoughtful and, especially important today, fun during the creative process. Her attention to detail, no matter the scope of the project, makes a difference in your outcomes and her commitment to completing the task surpasses expectations. I recommend Michelle often and have never been disappointed … nor have those who called her.

— Carrie Rasmussen, Marketing Manager at Herald-Tribune Media Group

Michelle is not only a consummate professional, she is a visionary artist as well. I had the opportunity to work with her for a few months, and her dedication and ingenuity made those of us working with her not only look better because of her amazing designs and inspired ideas, but her genuine drive to be the best inspired the rest of us to perform better. She was the one single individual that held that newspaper together, and I hope and intend to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.
