Meraki (mer-ä-kē), v. Greek. To do something with soul, creativity, and passion. Meraki Communications Group is a full-service communications and marketing agency with a passion for telling stories—whether that’s through brand development, graphic design, content creation, stakeholder engagement, and media relations to meet the unique needs of government agencies, non-profits, and private-sector companies.  Guided by the principles of inclusion, empowerment, and change, our team brings decades of combined experience to our client’s priorities connecting the dots and pairing strategic communications and marketing solutions with meaningful impact, reach, and engagement to meet client needs.

Our agency was born out of a vision to serve the interests of populations that have been historically underestimated, underserved, and underrepresented by amplifying voices and causes that might otherwise be overlooked. That vision propels our work, which—at its core—seeks to bridge the gaps and connection points between awareness, access, and opportunity.
