Re: Letter of Recommendation for Jon Sutz

To whom it may concern:

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Jon Sutz. His creative, media and
business consulting skills and expertise have proven to be invaluable in the formative stages of our think tank and
activist organization, the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD).
During our ongoing work in the past year, Jon has provided a vast array of services and input which have been
essential to the success of the AIFD, and our efforts to take it to “the next level.”
What was profoundly unique about Jon’s contributions to the AIFD is that they were not just limited to the task
we initially contracted him for, logo production and a graphics makeover. (Note: The above logo is still our “old”
one; the new one that Jon developed for us, along with other media, will be implemented later this year.) He also
has an uncanny grasp of the challenges facing those wishing to advocate liberty in the public square, which are even
more significant and complex, given the AIFD’s mission to do so in an environment that encompasses religion, law,
philosophy and national security. We found his input on our (existing) website, logo, and the body of other visual
and written media we have developed and employ, to be uniquely on-point, and well thought-out.
With Jon, you can rest assured that your work will be given his undivided attention, and he will not stop
working until you are unquestionably happy with the result. His expert contributions to the AIFD grew not only
from just our media, but into his development of a powerful assessment of our organization’s intellectual positioning
in the “marketplace of ideas,” and an invaluable, graphical “force-field analysis,” which Jon recommended, and
created for us. These materials were all indispensable during our recent board of directors’ retreat, and are now part
of our foundational growth plan, towards our mission of being a significant organization on the American
intellectual landscape. This would not have been possible without Jon’s contributions and expertise.
Jon’s combination of marketing, graphic design, writing, editing and research abilities and knowledge, along
with his deep understanding of the ideas of liberty and security, upon which the AIFD is focused, made his
contributions not only superb, but unique. He was clearly not only working on our project as a job, but as an
individual who loves what he does, and loves the ideas of liberty.
I would without hesitation recommend Jon for his expertise in graphics artistry, marketing, and professional
organizational consultation.
