"What I love about Lynn, besides his homeopathic horse hoof remedies, is that his primary objective is to HELP YOU. He possesses the rare trait of results AND creativity. It's a hard line to walk, but Lynn has been doing it well for years. Isn't that why businesses seek out ad agencies?”

“Lynn Kirby and Stimulus are an incredible asset to our company.”

Keith Mann, Rubatex International

“Lynn Kirby @ Stimulus may just be the most creative person I have ever known. I have seen him come up with several brilliant ideas in the time it would take others just to understand a situation. He is innovative and dynamic! In addition to working under his direction several years ago, we have remained in contact. He not only provides excellent service to his customers, he serves as an Advisory Committee member at the college, assisting a new generation of communicators and designers. I believe Lynn and Stimulus would be an excellent source of creative service for any business; They will take the time to understand your needs, and help you achieve your desired results.”

Donna Keesee Hobbs, Instructor & College Graphic Designer at Central Virginia Community College

"Stimulus created a superior look for the Glass Pride & Appreciation program for the EC Glass High School Foundation. Our board was extremely pleased with the fresh look, quality materials and flexibility the design provides for continued use in the future. I had worked with Lynn at Stimulus in other capacities in the past and was glad to have the opportunity to do so again. He never disappoints and always adds an additional twist to take the ideas up a level!”

    Stimulus is very responsive and caring. They took the design of my web site very personally. They offered strong ideas but allowed my vision to take precedence. In the end the site reflects our company’s values and the products we sell exactly as we want them to.
