The Richter Group is a strategic communications consulting firm that helps organizations develop their most compelling content and messages, then deliver to target audiences through multiple media platforms.

Impactful Branding
Is your organization effective in conveying its identity and brand through its logo, collateral materials and communications to both internal and external audiences?

The Richter Group led a rebranding initiative for Chicago Child Care Society that involved renaming its preschool and rewriting its promotional materials. The Richter Group worked with Seabury Theological Seminary in Evanston as it redefined its educational mission. Branding, naming, graphic design, web development and communication strategy were developed for the Peoria Riverfront Museum in Peoria, Illinois.

Content Strategy
Do you need fresh strategies to deliver your content and convey your brand more effectively to donors, board, staff, stakeholders and the public?

The Richter Group created a strategic communications plan for the 150th anniversary of The Chicago Academy of Sciences, the parent of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. While on staff at The Chicago Community Trust, Ms. Richter launched the 95th anniversary and countdown to the Trust’s 100th birthday. The Richter Group created an educational media plan for Chicago’s Field Museum.

Do you understand your market environment, your competition, and your brand image so you effectively reach your intended target audiences?

Best practices in program development throughout public media were analyzed and a customized a development model was created for Chicago Public Radio. The Richter Group created an in-depth analysis of the children’s television market for Thomson Target Media and The Pleasant Company (American Girl).
