Spring 2014



It’s been an exciting and busy start to 2014!  We are proud to be working with such an amazing group of businesses and helping promote their names and brands through strategic outward communications.  Thanks to all of our clients, partners and friends for the continued collaboration.  Looking forward to a great year!

What's new?


Our Blog

If you haven’t already, check out the A.wordsmith blog where we share our thoughts as communicators on current events and news. One of my favorites is this post written by Graphic Designer Kris Travis on how Sony used 8 millions flower petals in their most recent ad campaign. The result is nothing short of breathtaking. 


New Clients

We are excited to have recently kicked off new client engagements with CHR Creative, Obility Consulting, Concorde Career College and Tricor Print Communications. 


2014 Community Partners

We have also selected Business for Culture & the Arts and Opal Creek Ancient Forest Center as our 2014 community partners and are providing pro bono PR and branding support to these organizations throughout the course of the year.


New Team Members

Our team has expanded since you last heard from us! Gretchen Hoffman and Mary Gorretta join as Associates and Kailee Pence as Intern. You can read a bit more about each of them on our Web site.
