LGND has the mind of a consulting firm with the heart of a creative agency. We believe that good storytelling can be the difference between success and failure for organizations, policy initiatives, and product launches. We also believe that too much hard work and too many important ideas end up trapped in PDFs and hard-to-reach websites, so their stories aren’t told effectively.
We supply our clients with the creative ideas and technology that make those stories shine, which can range from designing a flight tracking dashboard that updates aircraft locations in real-time for Aireon to building a campaign on the regulatory challenges of Food Truck owners for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
Our team’s varied backgrounds range from the Obama White House, Mayor Bloomberg’s administration, and Google, to startups, public affairs, and venture capital firms.
