Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works (AADPW)

Our team created a one-year public relations campaign – DPW&YOU: Making a difference, together – in support of Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works’ (AACDPW) overarching goal to promote communication with county residents and establish a shared responsibility to maintain their community. Throughout the year-long campaign, we provide brand development, copywriting, graphic design, custom illustration and animation, website design, media pitching, social media development, as well as media planning and buying.

U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD)

To improve communication with stakeholders, our team developed a range of communication materials for the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Maritime Administration (MARAD). Our support began with the technical rewrite of website descriptions and case studies for the MARAD’s StrongPorts Port Planning and Investment Toolkit. We also developed four whiteboard animation videos, custom information graphics, fact/data sheets and a tradeshow display for the MARAD’s use at the American Association of Port Authorities 2015 Convention in Miami.


With an initial goal to recruit the best and the brightest scientists and engineers, as well as garner a broader scope of projects, we worked with CEM to develop a new brand image to position the organization as the leading expert engineering system. Our support began on a per-project basis and evolved into an Agency of Record relationship in 2016. Today, our full-service team provides design, website development, custom illustration, public relations and social media expertise.
