“York College is indebted to C. Grant & Company for outstanding work in defining and communicating our brand. They conducted a number of important studies for York College across constituent groups that allowed us to better understand who we are and how we are perceived. They then were able to craft that information into a communication package containing both visual and verbal mediums that have allowed us to better inform our publics of who we are and what we do.”

Dr. Steven Eckman, President, York College

We work with people we like on projects we believe in.

Our Story

We work with people we like on projects we believe in.

That statement sums up the vision we’ve had since our founding in 2000. After 21 years as a corporate marketing leader, Chris Grant traded the French cuffs and shiny shoes for the chance to start the kind of firm where he wanted to work. Small enough to be focused, but large enough to crush complex projects. A team of proven “hitters,” not wannabes. A broad portfolio of capabilities so solutions aren’t recycled. Momentum changers who you like being in the room with. Just scroll down to see the markets and organizations we serve.

We value agility, trust, intuition, data, focus, faith, fun, and that little gap where the light comes in and changes things for the better for everyone.

The system works. After nearly two decades, we’ve got a host of happy client-partners. You’ll see their recommendations throughout this site. We’d love for you to join them. Should we talk?
