The Applied Humanities is a boutique consulting and design firm. We specialize in helping businesses represent themselves well in a fast-changing world, and we work to tell your story to the people you want to reach. We find that the best marketing is honest, organic, and values-driven, and that when a company can represent what it truly cares about to its audiences, everyone benefits. 

Our clients span a wide range, from small arts organizations and non-profits, to national healthcare and real estate companies. We offer a range of services, customized to fit your needs, including:

  • Public Relations
  • Advertising
  • Marketing
  • Strategic Planning & Consulting
  • Graphic Design
  • Web Development
  • Social Media Strategy & Content Creation

We value our clients' confidentiality and unique stories, so rather than offering case studies online, we are happy to discuss the challenges and opportunities specific to your industry, as well as show you some of the work we've done upon request. We can work with whatever team you have in place already, or serve as an ad-hoc team to fill gaps in your organization. Our emphasis is on collaboration, communication, and client feedback.

So why are we called "The Applied Humanities"? Our genesis as a company arose from higher education & the fine and performing arts. We believe that the values underlying liberal arts education - creativity, inquisitiveness, a willingness to learn and adopt new points of view - are the same values that can help businesses succeed in private industry. Our hallmark is creative problem solving and fresh perspectives, combined with a thoughtful and nuanced approach to what makes you or your business unique.

We serve the greater Los Angeles and Orange County area in person, and are available to consult nationally and internationally.
