Jeff Krabill, CEO of The Krabill Marketing Group, LLC which produces Capabilities for Ability Works, shared this: "Working with The ArtD'partment has been a wonderful collaboration. We wanted to create something that really caught the eye and made a statement about the good work done by Ability Works, but in a different way than all the newsletters that are out there. It wasn't easy as newsletters aren't always seen as cool in this digital age. However, we hit upon the right combination of design and content that caught the judges' eyes. We're pleased that Ability Works is receiving this recognition."
