“The Catchword team members that I have worked with are truly experts in the field of naming and have a passion for linguistics, naming, and marketing that is evidenced by every interaction I have with them. While they are extremely creative, they are grounded in reality and have a solid understanding of trademark law. They truly love what they do. They are very talented, and I personally have learned a great deal from them during the last several years.”

“Catchword also has the ability to ask the correct questions to pull out the information necessary to assist with architecture planning. They did not shy away from examining thorny issues and asking the tough questions – as an objective third party, they were able to provide a voice and perspective that just isn’t possible from within the organization.”
