"Anthony is like one of those pebbles you find at the beach—so multi-faceted and unique that when you add it to your other rocks, it elevates the whole collection! In a time of over-specialization, he's the rare talent who can see the whole picture, identify the over-arching goal, and put the steps in their proper order—all while being calm, supportive, and inspiring!
I especially appreciate Anthony's willingness to partner with me within my budget and in my half-formed state. Also, as a former marketing writer in Chicago who has worked with many writers and artists, I'm impressed by his ability to allow my creative process, rather than foist his own ideas on me. He really honors and understands every crucial step in bringing ideas to life. Get Anthony on your team. He's absolutely worth hanging on to! "

He's a diligent problem solver when "stuff happens," and when a project is in the flow, he keeps it light and fun, just the way I like to work. Work does not have to feel like work when Anthony's in the picture!"

It's rare to find someone who is able to walk that line so effortlessly. He is genuine, motivated, caring, talented, and above all, passionate about what he does.

"Anthony J.W. Benson is an unusual combination of things. He’s extremely creative in everything he does, but, intuitively knows how to put a budget, timeline & action plan to that creativity. Anthony looks for a way to make a difference with every project he takes on but never loses sight that the “business end of making a difference” has to be successful or nobody wins. He intuitively knows what people want. Anthony is also a beautiful and gifted writer! Whether he’s writing for a book, magazine, music review or copy for a laundry detergent ad, his prose is insightful, poignant & impactful. Most important of all to me, Anthony has a kind, caring heart. He sincerely wants to “serve" any client he works with. It’s not “what can I get”? it’s “what can I give”? He’s wise enough to know that this philosophy will leave him peaceful & fulfilled, and besides that….”It’s just good business."
—Jimmy Brandmeier, President, 180 Music
