Caroline Brackett Studio of Design

Working with Dorothy has opened my eyes to another world of social media, marketing and technology. I can practically hear her wheels turning constantly as she thinks of new and inventive ways of promoting my business! I've gained business, knowledge and a friendship from working with Dorothy and her staff. She's, simply put, the best!

Art + Light Gallery

As owner of a small business, Art & Light in the Village of West Greenville, I turned to Dorothy in January 2016 with high hopes, but I had no idea that I would not only gain an incredible business partner but a true friend as well. Dorothy is one of those people who always has the backs of her clients and to see measurable results is icing!

Palmetto Timing

When I first started working with Dorothy several years ago she didn't know what a race bib was. What Dorothy did know how to do is market and execute a great event. Dorothy has created a First Class company in just a few short years.

Gryphon Custom Cabinets

Dorothy and her team have taken the time to get involved and thoroughly understand the vision for my company. A portion of our growth this year is a direct result of her diligence. Since her involvement with our company, she has gone above and beyond in every aspect! I looked up the definition of outstanding customer service in the dictionary and low and behold there were no words, only a picture of Dorothy F. Self. In my industry, timely responses are a crucial component to our success. I know that Dorothy understands that. Her prompt responses to my questions and great attention to detail is something that I greatly appreciate! It has been my pleasure to work with Dorothy, and we look forward to working with her more. I would highly recommend DFS Creative Concepts to anyone who would listen.

TWIGS

I have known Dorothy professionally for over a decade. I applauded her work with The Greenville News and Talk Magazine. She was my ‘Go-To’ person for all details regarding advertising, event details and editorial needs. I knew that I could depend on her for accuracy, honesty and timeliness. It was not surprising that eventually Dorothy launched her own business. She is the type of business woman who knows how to do things right and we all know that the only way to ensure that things are done correctly is to be in charge and have it done your way. I, for one, think that Dorothy’s way is the best way.

PLJI & GCC

I’ve known Dorothy for about a year now since our businesses have started working with her and her team. She always listens to us when we explain how we want our companies to be portrayed and what we stand for, which she proves over and over again by how well she portrays our businesses online for us. Anytime I have had a question or concern she answers me almost instantly even if she doesn’t have the answers just yet to make sure I know she’s on it and will have answers to me shortly. Dorothy is the whole package when it comes to someone you would want to work with. She is genuine and pure and works so hard to keep our businesses growing. I could not recommend Dorothy highly enough.

MB Interiors and Design

Dorothy and I connected the second we met and could have spent the entire day chit chatting and giggling about everything and then some. She is magnetic! Her ability to listen and then to write so brilliantly and effortlessly is truly her gift. I enjoy her passion and enthusiasm. She's a valuable asset to my business and will be a life-long friend.

The event was superb this year, thanks to your directing. Mother nature even held back the rain. Sorry I can't give you credit for that. Looking forward to the next one!

2017 Greenville News Run Downtown 5k

Congratulations on a wonderfully organized race yesterday. I have been competing in New England as well as here in the South for 65 years, and I cannot recall any race that was better organized, better advertised, better run, or better timed. You folks do great work and all runners should thank you! Looking forward to this race next year!

TWIGS

We have worked together on numerous community events, and I know that when I get a call from Dorothy that the request will be effortless because Dorothy will have taken care of all details prior to calling. It was Dorothy’s ability to manage and her personal concern for her clients that brought me into her client network. DFS manages all of Twigs’ social media, the website, promotional collateral and Marketing Direction. There are times when I wonder if DFS has any clients other than Twigs because of the amount of care and attention that Twigs receives! The DFS team is proactive, always listening to our needs and always thinking how to improve for the future. With Dorothy at the helm, I know we are in good hands.

Mattress by Appointment

I have known Dorothy Self for 10 to 12 years and have followed her projects and accomplishments during that same period of time. After moving my company’s headquarters to Greenville, South Carolina, in 2014 I wanted to work with a firm locally to focus on growing our social media presence. DFS Creative Concepts, and more specifically Dorothy Self, was an easy choice amongst all of the different options available. I have been very pleased so far.
