A Focus On Equity

At Hyphenate, we use an intersectional lens to encompass the richness of the human experience, leading to growth-oriented outcomes that are beneficial not only for business, but for the communities we care about.

Our clients advance the common good through leadership in their communities, big and small. We help them reach diverse customers, many of whom are at the intersections of multiple identities. We facilitate meaningful insights that recognize hyphenate identities, creating a more three-dimensional understanding and acceptance of difference, contributing to a more sustainably inclusive society.

Here’s what some of our clients from the last 20+ years have to say:

Tan was hired to design a report for publication. She helped us articulate a vision to take a technical report and make it appealing to readers from different audiences and in different languages. She was professional, easy-to-work with and felt like part of the team. She delivered an excellent product on time and made herself available for troubleshooting.

Dr. Neeraj Mistry

Managing Director, Managing Director, Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases, Sabin Vaccine Institute

Tan is an incredibly talented website designer. She originally designed my website in 2011 and then recently redesigned and updated my website (something I should have done a few years ago!). She immediately got my vision for what I wanted my new website to look like and implemented everything on my wish list. She was hugely collaborative in all the details, sending me color palettes, font options, etc. She designed my logo- a very creative combination of my initials, SC. She met with me virtually several times throughout the process to ensure this great outcome. Tan is easy to talk to, super friendly, and super experienced as she made great recommendations. As soon as my new website went live, my new client inquiries substantially increased. I can’t speak enough of Tan’s talent and highly recommend her work.
Sarah Cook

Owner/Therapist , Sarah Cook, LCSW, LLC

I’ve known Tan for 11 years and we’ve worked on a number of web projects together for my businesses. Tan is smart, creative and highly efficient. During COVID-19 when small business owners have to pivot and re-pivot to stay afloat, Tan helped provide solutions for my bar and restaurant’s ever-changing online needs. I appreciate her thoroughness to seek and present various options for me, as well as her patience to explain everything!

Julie Kim

Co-Owner, Jukimoo, LLC (Littlefield and Parklife Brooklyn)

Tan built my business a beautifully designed website and has made updates to make it functional and very secure. Her design sense and ideas are excellent. She helped me concretely organize my data and images so that the final result is exactly what I had hoped for my website. She is easy to work with and is very clear with communication. I highly recommend her for website design and project management.
