Heyday Books
Susan Ives Communications advised this award-winning independent publisher and cultural institution on communications and fundraising, and developed marketing materials for publications including News from Native California, a Guide to the Birds of the Sierra Nevada, and a History of San Francisco Bay.

"Susan Ives understands the big picture, which she defines with wonderful and liberating clarity; she is equally cogent on the practical means for achieving that vision. Whether the question is "how do we position ourselves for the next few years" or "how do we phrase this to appeal to funders," I have turned to her for advice and never been less than enlightened by what she's provided. We've grown tremendously, not only in size but in strength and focus, and we owe much of this to Susan's experience and guidance."
