“You can’t win without a quorum”

- Someone, probably, sometime

The way people are informed, engaged, and influenced has evolved. The way too many campaigns and causes communicate has not.

Too many political organizations still cling to rusted assumptions about the efficacy of certain channels and strategies. No single platform — even earned media — has the reach or reliability it once did, forcing campaigns and advocacy organizations to diversify and broaden the platforms on which they communicate, while innovating and customizing the content they use to engage their target audiences.

Quorum Creative was built for modern political communications.

Quorum Creative is a mission-driven communications firm, working with Democratic political campaigns, progressive causes, and nonpolitical organizations that are trying to make a positive difference in the world. We help our clients communicate in an innovative, disciplined and coherent manner across the platforms for that are actually right for the strategy. We are aggressively outcome-oriented, determined to implement strategies that will help you achieve your goals — ruthlessly avoiding distractions and shiny objects in favor of methodical execution.

Quorum Creative is a boutique agency, not a content farm. When you work with Quorum Creative, you won’t be handed off to an inexperienced junior account coordinator. You’ll work with a seasoned communications operative with experience in journalism, Congress, advocacy organizations, international nonprofits, and campaigns at every level. You’ll work with someone who adores policy and has spent years translating good ideas into effective messages. You’ll work with a professional who has advised first-time and experienced candidates, elected officials, celebrities, and CEOs. And you’ll have the confidence that comes with knowing the person drafting your statements, scripting your videos, and writing your ads has written speeches for United States senators, talking points for rock stars, and emails for presidential candidates.

We bring that experience to every pixel, frame, word, and drop of ink we produce for our clients.

Let's talk and see if we're a good fit.

Because Quorum Creative is a small agency, we don't chase every potential client. We want to work with clients for whom we're a good fit, and who are a good fit for us. It starts with a conversation.
