Communications firms form strategic partnership
Two communications firms have teamed up to provide clients with enhanced services.
834 Design & Marketing in Grand Rapids and Vanguard Public Affairs in Lansing said today that they’ve entered into a strategic partnership.
834 Design & Marketing is an award-winning integrated communications firm, providing content marketing, public relations, social media, web site design and special event services.
Vanguard is a communications, policy, fundraising and consulting firm, serving clients in government, education, nutrition, energy and other industries.
Through the strategic partnership, the firms will be able to offer clients the expertise of 14 combined employees.
“When a prospective client hires one of us, they hire all of us,” said Kim Bode, principal and owner, 834 Design & Marketing.
Bode said the strength of the partnership is how clients will benefit from engaging with a “one-stop shop.”
T.J. Bucholz, president and CEO of Vanguard Public Affairs, said together, the firms “can compete with any other choice in the region.”
