  • 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!

    Dorothy and staff at DFS Creative have been tremendously helpful in helping us craft messaging that resonates with our clients! Dorothy is personable, knowledgeable, helpful, energetic, creative and enthusiastic! Not sure what else could be said as a testimonial beyond that! Best of luck in all you do!

  • 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!
  • 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.

    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.

    Dorothy impressed me from the moment we met. She’s personable, professional and full of energy! It is a pleasure to work alongside a woman with her strength and abilities.
  • 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.

    We love working with Dorothy and her creative team for our marketing and PR needs. She’s always ready to toss around great ideas and has an eye for what works. Her shoe collection isn’t too shabby either!
