Global branding consultancy, Addison Whitney, is excited to announce the opening of their newest office location in Seattle, WA. The Seattle office joins Addison Whitney's other offices in Germany, Tokyo, San Francisco, New York City and their corporate headquarters in Charlotte, NC in providing world class branding and design services in the consumer, B2B, technology and pharmaceutical industries.
Over the past 20 years Addison Whitney has shared a long standing relationship with Microsoft. The new Pacific Northwest location will help broaden both the Microsoft relationship along with others in the area due to the increased project management and production efficiency Addison Whitney's clients will experience by the localized Pacific Northwest presence.

She was frequently recognized for her work and won a number of awards. Her expertise in all facets of branding coupled with her leadership and management skills make her a dynamic addition to the Addison Whitney team.
