Harrington Communications has watched both its client list and staff grow in tandem over the last year.
The Grosse Pointe-based marketing agency has added close to 20 new clients over the last year. In that same time it has hired two new people (a graphic designer and an account manager) and is looking to hire another graphic designer right now. The company currently employs six people and three independent contractors.
Spurring this growth has been Harrington Communications switch to more digital-oriented work. The company got its start seven years ago doing print design and general marketing work. It now has narrowed its client list to mainly professional service firms and is focusing on Internet marketing and digital design work, which now composes 50 percent of the firm's work.
"These are the two principal areas where we have grown or evolved," says Jay Harrington, CEO & co-owner of Harrington Communications
Harrington Communications now specializes in branding, website design and development, email marketing and content creation for law, accounting, consulting and other professional services firms.
