Our Story

Guiding Type was founded in January 2014. We have worked with a wide range of clients internationally and throughout the U.S. We helped hone their product and service messaging to consumers, as well as refined their overall brand messaging.

Our clients include entrepreneurs who needed content created from scratch for their startups and companies with a track record in the marketplace who needed help developing fresh content.

We've also developed content, marketing, and social media strategies for businesses, nonprofits, and individuals that incorporated both print and digital elements. Some of that work and testimonials can be reviewed here on our co-founder's portfolio page. You can also review some of the clients we have worked with here.
