Invested in Community

We hold strongly that we carry a responsibility for the communities in which we live and work. Our people are invested in our neighborhoods, churches and nonprofits. Every week, you can find us on boards, advisory teams and volunteering around the city. It’s no surprise then that we also seek work that creates meaning for communities, whether it’s developing messaging for our city, utilities, and economic development organizations, or if it’s helping businesses create jobs and improve the quality of life for our neighbors.

Our Space

With a palpable 40’s private eye aesthetic, our offices are located in the heart of downtown Holland, Michigan in the historic Botor Building on West 8th Street. At such a central location, it’s not uncommon to find us out walking for coffee or visiting the weekly farmer’s market, but several of our clients are within walking distance as well. We keep an open door policy to friends, family and clients who would like to visit – please feel welcome to drop in if you’re ever interested in seeing the space.
