Deb Ossi, Content Strategist/Writer

Deb Ossi is former book and magazine editor. She’s published hundreds of articles online and in print and has lived through–and mastered–the many iterations of SEO.

Messaging is Deb’s passion. She’s got an English degree and an MA in art history to prove her love of the image/text relationship. Telling a story through words and pictures is a skill that she honed as a design philosophy professor, art magazine editor, and children’s picture book consultant. She uses those skills to help a portfolio of clients from toy manufacturers to tech companies to political campaigns.

Persuasive messaging goes beyond words. Whether it’s a blog, an article, or a book, the relationship between pictures and text is essential for guiding a reader through a narrative. Deb’s years of experience in art direction and her depth of knowledge on branding and image/text relationships help her clients tell memorable stories that capture readers’ attention and imagination.

Deb’s passion for the arts has guided her since she was a kid. Arts advocacy is still an important part of her life. Helping arts  and arts education nonprofits raise their profiles and secure much-needed funding makes her truly happy.
