Eckel & Vaughan : Say Something Worth Talking About

We are a full-service strategic communications agency. We help our clients find their voice — what to say, when, where, and how to say it. And then we get the right people talking about you — the right way — through the right channels. That’s what leads to not only getting you noticed, but making you successful.

Our Philosophy

We’re part of your team

When we work with you, we REALLY work with you. That means standing in the trenches alongside you. It’s our job to know your business. Your culture. Your vision. Your history. Your issues and challenges. And to be right there for you — and with you — no matter what. Your problem is our problem. Your goal is our goal. Your victory is our victory. That’s the way we approach everything we do.

We’re always thinking

One visit with our team, and you’ll feel the entrepreneurial energy. None of us believe that what we do is a nine-to-five, punch-the-clock kind of job. Because sometimes the best ideas come when you least expect them. When we bring on someone new to our team, we look for the brightest minds who are always thinking. Always creating. Always looking for new ways and resources to solve problems.

We solve problems

What fuels our collective fire is solving problems. Nothing gets us more charged up. We listen. We ask the right questions. We pay close attention to the world around us. We research. We dig. We gut check. We brainstorm. We collaborate. We vet and vet and vet some more. Our inquisitive and analytical process allows us to develop innovative, effective ways to solve your problems. And then we let the world know.

We excel in four broad areas, utilizing an arsenal of cross-platform,
integrated marketing, media, and PR tactics to get results.

Cocktail Napkins and Crises: Is Your Brand Prepared?

Long before they were used as storyboards for Harry Potter and A Few Good Men, cocktail napkins protected the surface of a table from rogue drops of wine or condensation from a chilled beer. Just as the layers of a cocktail napkin safeguard the integrity of a bar from an accidental spill, a crisis communications plan […]

History of the Cocktail Napkin

Cocktail napkins have captured moments of discovery, groundbreaking business concepts, and revolutionary ideas. These 5″ x 5″ quarter-folded squares are ubiquitous in restaurants and bars across the world. But where did they come from? Who had the “cocktail napkin” idea to create the original cocktail napkin? The answer is far messier (forgive the pun) than […]
