Mo SpondourisPresident, Lead Graphic DesignerEmail Me:
As a graphic and web design maven with over 25 years experience in advertising and marketing, my career spans both the corporate and client side of the industry. I have created winning design concepts for branding initiatives, employee communications, packaging, audio-visual, print collateral and web design. Independently, I have owned and operated Farm It Out! Design Studio for 11 years. In partnering with both Natalie and Wanda in various settings and situations over the years, I've found an amazing synergy and I'm excited to collaborate with New Leaf.
Brands I've supported I've worked with consumer power-brands like McDonald's and Kellogg's, financial institutions like PNC Mortgage and Washington Mutual Home Loans, and industrial manufacturers like Intermatic, Inc., Malibu Lighting, and many more.

Copy WriterEmail Me:
With a diverse background in television as a writer/producer/reporter to multiple creative roles in corporate advertising and marketing departments, I bring creativity and experience to your project. I have the aptitude to not only write about technical products, solutions and services, but also a strong creative flair and intuitive sense of what “talks to” the customer.
On a business side, “Presentation is everything!” On the personal side, I believe we all have skills and talents with which we can serve others. That is where we find our true purpose and reward. I enjoy entertaining, cooking, gardening, and spending quality time with my family.
"A need for excellence outside of the 9 to 5 position working in corporate advertising and marketing led to a leap into the consulting marketplace. Almost 25 years later—consulting provides my clients with great creative while anchoring my home and family life.”
