Judy Harff spent her early career in retail working for Williams-Sonoma and one of largest high-end retailers in Southern Africa. After several years, Judy started her own graphic design company, A Bolder Image, in 1993. From an initial emphasis on logo design and corporate ID programs, A Bolder Image soon started designing brochures, ads, directories, and displays for its clients. By the time A Bolder Image‘s name was changed to “Creating Results” in 1997, Judy was designing award-winning comprehensive marketing and advertising materials for clients in five states, publishing three directories and providing leadership critical to the company’s success and growth.
Flexible and innovative, Judy has served as Art Director, Creative Director, focus group and research leader, Human Resources Manager and more. No matter what her title, her goal was always the same, “find creative and results oriented people who would work together to delight clients”.
She now works with the other owners of Creating Results to provide strategic oversight and develop agency strategy.

When we're designing websites for older adults, a client sometimes will ask, "Can it have ____? I saw it on such-and-such's website and it's so cool!"
I'm a creative person so I like cool.
But I like results even more.
What's cool and trendy can, at times, actually turn off the baby boomers and seniors our clients are trying to attract. These mature consumers don't want fuss and bother. They want functional, easy-to-use tools that help them make decisions and take action.
