Whether it’s for a development, a city, a state, or a nation, typical agencies sell cynical engagement sessions, a stylish logo, a generic slogan, and pretty pictures.
We uncover and harness the meaning and emotion that is already the core of your place — at its best. We work with your citizens to develop a master narrative. Then we help you bring it to life, together.
Provence and Sonoma Valley are doing fine. Bombastic property developers with political ambitions don’t tend to share our philosophy. If you’re already spending thousands to get on top-ten lists, and it makes you happy, please continue.
We don’t sell you an off-the-shelf slogan and a media campaign. While that process makes agencies a lot of money, it doesn’t work.
Our method makes an economic, social, and cultural strength of what makes you different. We discover what is already there, under the surface, and we help you make it the foundation of everything you say and do, of every decision you make.
We partner with local agencies wherever we work, around the world. We’re building a network of like-minded professionals who have experienced the power of the Places are People method.
Maybe you’re working on a Request for Proposals. Maybe you need a keynote address or a workshop on narrative-based place-branding. Maybe you’d simply like to talk about where we have worked and how we might help.
