Communicating with Discernment

For organizations seeking to communicate complex ideas or challenging stories, we provide the experienced, strategic guidance and tools necessary to create effective understanding. Our clients know us for our responsive service, thoughtful approach and excellence of work product. It’s a reputation we’ve worked hard to build over the past 15 years, and it’s a reputation that can only stand on the success of our clients.

Our Promise

We won’t advise you until we know you. We will always tell you the truth. Your story matters as much to us as it does to you.

The Process

The power of your story rests in how it is told. Some stories are simple; some are not. All require thoughtful telling with context and authenticity to create understanding for internal and external audiences. In 15 years of storytelling we’ve refined our process for guiding clients to stories that are effective and persuasive.


Somewhere beneath the din of a crowded media landscape, mismatched marketing campaigns, and last year’s mission statement is your true story – the essence of who you are and the higher purpose your organization serves. We begin by developing our understanding of the story you need to tell.

  • Interviews
  • Branding Workshops
  • Competitive Benchmarking
  • Communications Audits
  • Stakeholder Surveys


With an understanding of your organization’s identity and long term goals, we work with you to create a communications strategy to support them. For your story, that means putting words to paper (or pixels) that are both true to the organization and meaningful to your stakeholders.

  • Brand Statement Development
  • Key Messaging Development
  • Marketing Communications Planning
  • Public Relations Planning


While it’s tempting to jump right into developing marketing materials, we hold that the discipline of discovery and strategy yield the most effective tools. A solid strategy holds every piece into alignment as an integrated campaign, creating clear understanding for every audience.
