At Iris we create communications systems that help organizations thrive. We’ve been helping colleges, schools, healthcare, cultural organizations, associations and nonprofits use communications to build community since 1996.
Through our A.M.I.E. process, your audience, message, image and experience align to create marketing that builds from the inside out. And most important – is designed to support strategy, operations and the financial model.
This audience-centered philosophy feeds into everything we do, whether the project is brand focusing, communication strategy, or design and writing for campaigns, events, websites and publications.
In 2012 we began developing resources for nonprofits to grow their knowledge and skills in marketing. Through Nonprofit Toolkit we’re training organizations across the country to become skillful marketers themselves. In 2021 we launched the Foundations Nonprofit Marketing course. Our Driving Participation Podcast provides 200 episodes discussing what participation means for nonprofits in the US and abroad.
