Event planning and management, design and branding, social media strategy and management


Portland-based design consultancy XPLANE was looking to increase their brand’s reach while generating qualified leads for their unique consulting business. Their business was driven heavily by recurring customers and references, and their in-the-room consulting magic and hands-on design approach was a challenge to sell solely online. To get their expertise in front of the right audiences, they wanted to create memorable and repeatable workshops to market their services in-person in target cities throughout the nation. 



XPLANE called the Detroit Creative Corridor Center home and hosted a week of events to give prospective clients, new friends, and the Detroit community a taste of the services XPLANE offered.
