Brink Communications is a woman-owned, BIPOC- and LGBTQIA-led marketing and communications agency united around justice, equity and solidarity. We are a team of 50+ dedicated professionals with robust in-house departments specializing in community engagement, brand development, Spanish-language content strategy and outreach, media buying, web design and film production. We’re proud to count among our ranks: activists, community organizers, public servants, teachers, scholars, analysts and engineers, artists and storytellers, all of passion and renown, embodying a kaleidoscope of skills, talents, and lived experiences. Whether the aim is connecting communities, conveying knowledge, evoking emotion or inspiring action, we begin by defining a clear strategy. Our approach follows agency best practices, but is never formulaic and differs slightly from most agencies because of how closely we work with audiences in helping to identify and set the course of the work. Our team possesses deep knowledge and experience in all arrays and aspects of creative execution, from open-world concepting to multimedia deliverables of every type. We support our clients with a fully integrated, ecosystem approach to develop and implement equity-based approaches from beginning to end.
