Kathy Tresnak is the most versatile, efficient and professional designer I have worked with during my 20+ year career in marketing. Kathy is more than a designer: she is a terrific resource. I rely on her strong direct marketing skills, her understanding of branding, as well as B-to-B communication strategies. Kathy has been my go-to designer for several years and has designed direct mail, sales and membership collateral, media kits and advertising—these projects have always been delivered on time and on budget. I highly recommend Kathy!

I’ve worked with Koncept for a number of years and they always do a great job for our printed and graphic design needs. Koncept gives me a strong, clean and contemporary look, and that’s important to the work we produce for donors to the Smithsonian, the audience for my publications. I rely on Koncept for great design, insights into my communications needs, and attention to detail. Koncept is also great on turnaround and utterly reliable. Three thumbs up!

Browne Academy’s magazine Inside Browne needed an updated look, so we turned to Kathy Tresnak of Koncept to assist us in a redesign project. Kathy is an independent school parent who understands the constituency we are trying to engage through our magazine. We are delighted with the fresh approach Kathy took. She redesigned our masthead, cover and layout creating a much more sophisticated, reader-friendly publication. The response from our families and alumni has been overwhelmingly positive—they love the new Inside Browne!

The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network is a small non-profit for people with food allergy. Kathy Tresnak took on our Annual Report project with the same zeal she used to create pieces for major clients. She asked lots of questions, studied our print and website material and came back to us with several options. The toughest decision we had to make was picking the one we liked best—they were all great! When we saw the book in print, we were extremely pleased. She interpreted our ideas in a tasteful, yet compelling way. The proof of the pudding is our members’ reactions. They loved it, were proud of how it depicted the organization, and have been more responsive than ever.

It seems like whatever we throw Koncept's way, Kathy comes back with multiple solutions that translate our desires to a fresh, creative, and energetic impact. She is not afraid of color, nor of abstract imagery. Her vitality is fail-proof, and she is both perceptive and sophisticated.
We are continually impressed by her ability to capture through her graphic designs the spirit of our widely-varied, themed concerts. Often, her astute contributions help us to further refine our own artistic ideas, resulting in a more cogent presentation to our audiences and the press alike. Kathy Tresnak’s company, Koncept, is most aptly named.

Koncept is great! Kathy Tresnak nailed my small business identity with her creative logo design and helped me work within the limits of a start-up budget to develop a timeless look. My project was treated with the same importance and attention to detail as if I were a corporate giant. I will continue to recommend Koncept Inc. to friends and colleagues.

Kathy’s designs are both captivating and highly original, and she herself is a most intelligent and effective businessperson—direct, honest, reliable, timely, and thorough. She follows her projects carefully from their early conception through their delivery and is not satisfied until everything is just right.
The school calendar that Kathy designed for Browne Academy is absolutely the best school calendar I have seen in 20 years of parenting. The calendar is useful, attractive, entertaining, and informative. The fresh creativity of Koncept never ceases to surprise and delight me.
