Bill Harris founded Cobalt Communications in 2005 after an early career that included seven years of teaching science at the middle-school level, seven years developing concepts and copy at creative agencies, and two years managing channel communications at one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. As the sole proprietor of Cobalt, he offered a full suite of editorial services, gaining recognition for the ability to transform technical information into clear, useful, readable stories. This led him to explore the visual aspects of storytelling — and to include graphic design as a key Cobalt offering. Today, he leads a talented team of designers and content specialists on behalf of clients that include HowStuffWorks/Discovery, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, ILC Dover, W.L. Gore and Ashland Water Technologies (now known as Solenis).
