Take

“In redesigning IIP's brand, MSDS has delivered more than great design, they've had a significant impact across our global operations. Their team showed great skill in understanding complex policy and technology content, and equal expertise in communicating it effectively to key audiences in business and government. They took time to understand our communications strategies and operational goals, then created the right solutions to help us realize them.”

– Jigar Shah, Executive Director
