Marketing, public relations, crisis management? Yeah, we do that. We also do government and school communications, social media engagement, surveys and polling, advertising and, well, a lot of other things. Essentially, we understand that “marketing” and “public relations” are umbrella words that actually fit a variety of communication needs. Your communication needs.


You already know the value your organization can offer. The next step is to leverage your message in such a way that you can connect with the right people. Easier said than done, right? That’s where we come in. We get energized by partnering with you to solve your communication challenges – no matter the shape or size. You bring the challenge. We’ll bring our proven track record, our talented team and our freshest ideas to the table to help you craft a tailored communications strategy that produces results.

So what’s your challenge? We assume you’re here for a reason. Why not take a look around to see what we can do for you. Look at WHY WE ROCK or explore WHAT WE DO and WHO WE ARE. And, if you feel like talking, you can find us over in the WHERE WE'RE LOCATED section.


We start our process by looking at your challenge from every angle. Which usually involves a lot of research, listening and learning. And, then, the ideas start flowing.


This is where the fun begins. We take all we have learned and begin to craft that knowledge into inspired plans. These designs can take on all kinds
of forms and expressions.
It’s our job to integrate
them into one
overall strategy.


Now you’re getting noticed.
How cool is that? But, the job isn’t finished. We will continue
to measure and adjust to ensure that the excitement
doesn’t fizzle.

Our little gem is an 1881 Italianate 3-story, Octagon Bank Barn located in Hudson, OH. It boasts about 8500 square feet over 3 floors.


The octagon barn was built by dairy farmers Hial and Milton C. Danforth in 1881. The Danforth family was from Vermont where dairy farming was prevalent. The barn was ingeniously designed to simultaneously feed all the Danforth cattle at one time.  The hay was pitched from the mow thru the center hole in the barn to the ground floor where the cattle had gathered to feed.


The barn was completely remodeled by Don Reisig in 1976. Allan Sveda was the architect. The barn was turned into an office building with three floors of usable space. It contained conference rooms along with kitchens and bathrooms, and housed the office of the Smithers Oasis Company, which makes water-holding floral foam. The former root cellar with its foot thick stone walls contained a vault. The barn has been put to many uses throughout the years. It formerly served as boat storage, an antique auction house and a meeting place for Civil Air Patrol in World War II. Prior to its renovation in 1976, the barn's only tenants were pigeons.
