At Marissa Berger Interactive

Corporate blogs are the living, human voice of their respective brands.  They show the expertise, passion, and personality of the people writing them.

If your blog does not match the rest of your brand you are effectively telling your clients that who you are does not match how you present yourself.

At MB/I we take special care to match blog design to company branding so that your true voice can shine through.
