Wow!! Cannot recommend connection kits highly enough. John customized everything for our specific (and complicated) needs and was patient and accommodating of last minute changes. Out kits look AMAZING and have been so, so well received. Thank you John and Connection Kits!

What stands out most about John is his ability to lead with kindness, making everyone on the team feel valued, comfortable, and heard.

He is incredibly organized and is able to provide clear direction, which results in a collaborative experience that's productive and streamlined. When it comes to programs, he thinks big-picture and considers every moving piece so that the day-of runs smoothly.

And, he's an amazing designer who genuinely approaches projects from the perspective of connection and purpose. I would absolutely recommend John for any projects, teams, or other creative initiatives.

We worked with Connection Kits for the AIGA Design Conference. They were amazing to work with–collaborative, professional, and stayed in constant communication. They were able to work within our budget for design, sourcing, fulfillment, and customer service and delivered hundreds of kits on time for our conference. I would highly recommend them for a unique, interactive physical touchpoint for a virtual event!

John and Anilia were exceptionally helpful in curating Connection Kits for an event that I hosted virtually at my company. Together, we brainstormed the overall feeling we wanted recipients to have and they orchestrated the ordering, wrapping and shipping of all the materials. Highly recommend!
