With a combined 40 years of experience in print, public relations and on the Web, we have earned an education in professional communications that has been both illuminating and … well, entertaining. We’ve seen a lot over the years – the brilliant, the slightly awkward and the downright ugly. But, most importantly, we’ve seen what works and understood why.
We work hard to understand client needs. We craft sound marketing plans, and create clean, effective copy and design on deadline. In short, we’ve learned how to help clients communicate effectively.
We offer such services as:
• Writing/editing (reporting, feature articles, policy reports, newsletters, Web content)
• Layout/design (magazines, brochures, posters, annual reports, logos)
• Public relations/planning (media strategies, communications and marketing plans)
We hope you take a few minutes to look around this Web site to learn more about our varied skills and that you consider us for any communications needs.

Worth a Re-read
With AMC's "Mad Men" about to begin Season 5 in March, it's time to revisit David Ogilvy's "Confessions of An Advertising Man," a blueprint for capturing the smokey substance of Madison Avenue.
The book opens with "How to Manage an Advertising Agency" and closes with "Should Advertising be Abolished?"
Says Ogilvy, glass in hand, "Many people – and I think I am one of them – are more productive when they've had a little to drink. I find if I drink two or three brandies, I'm far better able to write."

Who would have thought a typeface would be interesting enough for a feature film? Well, ubiquitous Helvetica stars in Gary Hustwit's engrossing 2007 documentary cleverly titled "Helvetica."
Hustwit explores the modern roots of the typeface through interviews with its developers and its friends and foes. The film presents the place of Helvetica in contemporary design. Some designers embrace it; others heap scorn on it, including accusations of responsibility for the Vietnam War. Really. Worth a look.
