Our Story

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

That not-so-noble 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 he wanted to work with when he sat on the other side of the desk. 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 can stand 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 everyone.

We’re not great at self-promotion. The irony isn’t lost on us. Fortunately, our clients pick up the slack. We’d love for you to join them. Should we talk?
