No two clients or assignments are ever alike, but among social change efforts there are many common challenges and leverage points.

We have more than 20 years of experience designing communications programs to advance organizational objectives, influence public policy and foster positive social change. Below are a few examples of clients we admire, and work we’re proud to have done.

“Research. Writing. Strategic thinking. Outreach. No one firm excels at all of these things. Except…Brotherton Strategies does. If you're looking for a smart, true, straight-shooting communications firm, one that not only "gets it," but gets it done, look no further.” — Sean Gibbons, The Communications Network

Water in the West

A joint program of Stanford University’s Woods Institute for the Environment and the Bill Lane Center for the American West, Water in the West seeks to address the West’s growing water crisis and to create new solutions that move the region toward a more sustainable water future. Working closely with our partners at Groundwork Strategies, we helped WITW sharpen its messaging and and refine its core brand attributes, building an organizational narrative that resonated with key audiences throughout the water policy community. The messaging then became a springboard for the writing and design of a bolder, clearer and more compelling case for support. Design work provided by Ross Hogin.
