OUR TEAM

The “Theme team” rhymes with “dream team” and that’s not coincidental. Our talent base spans many skill sets and has worked with myriad industries to provide clients with a range of capabilities that can tackle virtually any project.

PROPOSAL TEAM

Just like Liz, the proposal consultants at Theme follow proposal best practices endorsed by APMP. Liz and our consultants boast a combined 50 years of direct proposal experience. Our consultants are not only project managers for your proposal, they are also skilled writers that can be self-directed or work with your subject matter experts to write content that answers proposal requirements and is responsive to your customer’s needs.

Liz Megli, CF APMP

Liz founded Theme in May 2017 after five years of proposal management experience at a top engineering company. Her passion for helping clients navigate through the information needed to prepare a compliant, responsive, and persuasive proposal is shown in her attention to detail in all work. She also serves as the Local Engagement Co-Chair for APMP’s Greater Midwest Chapter. She has been recommended as a proposal consultant by government Procurement and Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) and is regularly engaged to teach proposal best practices colleges and industry events.

DESIGN TEAM

Why do we have so many designers on our team? It’s because of the importance we place on the visual appeal of your documents. We not only create stunning graphics that look great, but studies have shown that 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual. All designers are skilled using the latest graphic design tools on both Apple and Windows environments, and can work within your style guide parameters to ensure that our work is a natural extension of your graphic identity.

Katie McNeil

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Katie approaches every project with her right brain and left brain, developing high-quality proposal templates, infographics, and websites with a combination of beauty and brand. She develops visual assets so audiences can understand technical or complex subject matter, which is not surprising as her degree in criminology is how she has developed the skills and knowledge for understanding human behavior.

Karen White

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Karen partners with a variety of clients on projects from concept through delivery. She is experienced leading the design and production of websites, print, identity, packaging, brochures, detail books, interactive e-books, high-budget presentation books, multimedia, and corporate communication pieces. Karen has received public recognition for her work, including the Hermes Creative Award, an international competition that honors the messengers and creators of traditional and emerging media.

Sky Morrell

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Sky professes to “make stuff readable + useful + cool”, which she does on proposal-specific templates and infographics. Creating engaging experiences and eliciting feelings are her passions, and she blends the colors, typography, and imagery to create designs that are impactful to the audience.
