"Kelly Turner and Vurv created cover illustrations for my novel in 2005 as well as advised on urban marketing strategies. Kelly is a dedicated and creative professional. When working on my art assets through her agency, her personal quality standards were so high that she often was harder to please than I was -- and I was the client! Kelly was a big advocate of my work and so brought the kind of passion that any client wants to see from their agency. In addition, Kelly went out of her way to introduce me to the producer who ultimately purchased the film rights. Kelly is an expert in multicultural marketing and her advice was invaluable."
