Adlin Inc. is a consulting company that looks to help start-ups, and those that should behave like start-ups, to focus and act on customer-centric business decisions quickly and effectively. Adlin Inc. was founded by Tamara Adlin, a customer experience and e-commerce specialist who is described by Apartment One, the design studio behind the company’s brand identity, as having a bold and dynamic personal style. These qualities, as well as Tamar’s vibrancy and individuality, were the inspiration for her visual identity, which included logotype and business card design as well as a website informed by her ‘whiteboarding’ and post-it approach.

The Confidante is a group of CEOs who draw on their extensive networks to provide business leaders with tailored executive coaching and mentoring services.
