We create awareness, strengthen brands, manage issues and change behavior.
Gard is an advertising and public relations firm, specializing in corporate and public policy communications. We think strategically and creatively, and we execute with discipline and attention to detail.
The firm has significant experience in crisis communications, issue management and social marketing, as well as communications related to regulatory, permitting and litigation matters.
We work in traditional and digital environments, creating and managing content in paid, earned, owned and social media.
Over the years, we’ve developed a set of principles that guide the firm. We call them the Manzanita Notes. The first one remains first in importance: Concentrate on the work and the rest will follow.
