Who We Are

Ruddle Consulting is a full-service editorial, design and training company, with a knack for helping clients save money by replacing more expensive vendors, by reformulating marketing programs and processes, and by training in-house staff to handle all or most marketing communication projects without outsourcing.

The company started in 1988 as a cost-effective publisher of high-quality company newsletters, and later branched out into general marketing communication and websites for a wide range of national and local organizations. With high demand on the founder, Henry Ruddle, for public speaking and consulting, the company today merges creative services with analysis, advice and training.

What Our Clients Say About Us

As a major global technology company, it's important for us to stay in touch with our customers and our community. Ruddle Creative's full turn-key publishing services have been a crucial part of our local communication efforts. We rely on Ruddle Creative as a valuable editorial and design resource to help us maintain that communication.

--Dyan Chan, Advanced Micro Devices

Although the name doesn't sound like it, In-COHERENT, our employee newsletter, has been a clear, concise and highly effective communications tool over the past several years and I give a significant share of the credit to Ruddle Creative. Their editorial contribution and creative design work magic each month on what might otherwise be a boring hodgepodge. Their service orientation and upbeat personalities make our company newsletter a relatively low-stress item on my overly long to-do list.

-- Edwina DeRousse, COHERENT Corp.

Calpine values professional, service-oriented partners such as Ruddle Creative that we can trust to provide high-quality, turnkey communications, often under very tight deadlines. Ruddle Creative regularly goes the extra mile in delivering the best product for my company's needs. I appreciate that they take the lead in helping make us look good, and consider them a vital part of my communications team.

--Deborah Cipolla, Calpine Energy Corp.

At Goodwill, we have to communicate to very diverse audiences -- from the corporate and foundation CEOs and hundreds of individuals who help us with cash gifts or donate reusable items, to the clients who start new lives and careers through our vocational training programs. Ruddle Creative provides an invaluable service by helping us strike just the right balance and tone. Their high-quality editorial and design work on our annual report, newsletter and brochures has made my job much easier and has truly enhanced our ability to tell our story throughout our community

—Steven Spivak, Goodwill of Santa Clara County

In launching Baguette Gazette, our employee newsletter, Ruddle Creative's service, professionalism, and artistic contributions really showed us the value of using a specialist. Later, when we expanded the newsletter to reach our customers, Ruddle Creative's enthusiastic assistance was crucial to the success of the conversion.

Ruddle Creative has been an effective professional resource for us -- from the writing and design of our newsletter to the design and implementation of our corporate Web site. It's a real pleasure to work with them.

--Ray Montalvo, Le Boulanger Restaurants

With the diverse communication needs we handle, Ruddle Creative has really shown us the value of working with experts. On top of their creative ideas and excellent service, we have the utmost confidence that the newsletters and brochures Ruddle Creative produce for us will be top notch.

Ruddle Creative has been an effective and insightful marketing partner as QuickLogic's communications & graphics needs have expanded. Henry and his team have an amazing ability to effectively get to the point of what we're trying to communicate — not an easy task with technology products.

--Jan Houts, QuickLogic

Although we are one of the largest general contractors in the state, our communications needs are straightforward, and Ruddle Creative takes care of them professionally, efficiently and cost-effectively. In all of our marketing materials, advertising and company newsletter, Ruddle Creative puts in 110% to make sure that we look and sound our best to our customers and the community. We know that we can rely on Ruddle Creative as a high quality resource. They have never let us down.

--Justine Pereira, Devcon Construction

I attended a course at Stanford University on "Writing and Editing Newsletters," and when they critiqued our pre-Ruddle newsletter the lecturer said it was like the contents of a four-bedroom house crammed into a studio! I was so pleased with the results of having Ruddle Creative Inc. work on our corporate newsletter, The Communicator, that I recommended they also work on the design of our benefits newsletter, Ross Stores Ink.

--Jo Auckland, ROSS Stores

I receive story ideas, articles and photos from KLA-Tencor offices all over the world, but I don't have time put it all together. I rely on Ruddle Creative Inc. to make it all sound and look like it goes together, and ensure that we do a good job of reporting what's going on all over the company in each issue of InterChange.

--Employee communications and events manager, KLA-Tencor

Ruddle Creative Inc. has done a lot more than improve our newsletter. They've taken the time to get to know our organization and actually become our marketing partner. From the very start, they provided fresh and crisp ideas.

--David Szafranski, Comerica Bank-California

By consolidating all of the communications we send to our customers into one easy-to-read newsletter, we were able to halve our postage and printing costs. Our customers like the new format and Ruddle Creative Inc. was able to make it work with our overall marketing communications plan."

--Vice president of marketing, Oncology Therapeutics Network

The consistently high quality of Ruddle Creative Inc.'s editing and design has helped XCell become a respected industry journal and a major marketing tool for Xilinx. We have counted on their creative input for XCell and other publications since 1993; time and again, Ruddle Creative Inc. has come through for us, and often exceeded our expectations. Since Ruddle Creative Inc. took over the design and production, our mailing list has grown from 15,000 to 43,000 in North America.

--Carlis Collins, Xilinx Inc.
