I run ShiftFWD Branding Agency (Boise, ID) from 2012 to 2021 along with North American designer Naomi Niles.
Over the years, the agency evolved into a fuller process of discovery
and toward helping business owners find their amazing unique space in
the world so that they can resonate with their best customers and inner
circles. We find authenticity and the deep values within each client and
run with them like there’s no mañana.
Here are a few samples of our work.

Book Design for a Paleo
We worked alongside Alison Golden to provide the book cover and layout design for her popular book “The Modern No-Nonsense Guide to Paleo”.
This is one of the most practical and best books out there for people dedicated to the Paleo and Primal lifestyles. Since we’ve been big believers in this way of life ourselves for several years, it was an honor to work with Alison to develop the book cover and interior layout design for her excellent work. It’s got a ton of practical advice as well as a nice forward from Mark Sisson.
