People don't hear a word you say unless it actually matters to them. Which is rarer than you'd think. So companies end up talking to themselves, saying the same old things they've always said, while the rest of us go on tuning them out. It comes down to this: we're talking to a human being. That human cares about something. Everything else follows from there.

"A good advertisement is one which sells the product without drawing attention to itself."

Elisabeth McCumber | Owner

I started out as a copywriter in Portland, 2008. Today I'm a marketing consultant working with agencies and businesses in Oregon, Texas, New York and internationally.

I'm a writer, marketing coordinator, user experience aficionada, and client point-of-contact. I facilitate discussion, brainstorm ideas and drive action. When a project requires a larger team, I call on my colleagues in graphic design, web development and project management — people I've known and worked with for years, whose work I deeply respect — to scale into an agency of close-knit, hand-picked professionals.


So, what about you?

I have directly hired Elisabeth at three different companies and have consistently been very pleased with her work, regardless if it was a small local project or a large international promotion.
