Who we are

A two-person team with deep communications experience. Peter Weed has written on myriad subjects that range from the role of immigrants in building a sustainable workforce; to biker films; to esoteric tax strategy white papers.

Jennifer Hutchins, a Maine leader in nonprofit management, has made a career helping nonprofits make sound strategic decisions that clearly support their missions. MORE

What we do

We tell stories via print, social media, websites and presentations. It’s pretty simple. We capture, create and share interesting stories that matter, planning, writing and designing print and digital publications – from conception to delivery. To engage audiences, we listen carefully to our clients and ask the crucial questions needed to forge solutions that meet specific goals. We build communication plans through a thoughtful discovery process that clearly defines audience, purpose and objectives. MORE

What our clients are saying

“Peter worked closely with us on two time-sensitive, high-visibility website projects that were critical to the growth of our partners’ fleet fuel program portfolios. It bears noting that I hired Peter because of his stellar reputation among my marketing colleagues for excellent work, dependability and strategic thinking – and he delivered. His seasoned, collaborative approach was key to the success of our work. Our sites came together beautifully with the right messaging, brand positioning and voice and with the simplicity and clarity we were striving for. A pleasure to work with and truly in tune with strategic marketing and writing, I would recommend Peter to any organization at the drop of a hat.”
