who we are

a small but mighty team

J. Richards is a Cleveland-based boutique public relations, marketing and social media consultancy for independently owned brands. We create an impact through the power of storytelling, blending creativity with strategy to craft content that performs across print, broadcast and digital media.

We don't spin stories. We don't follow tired methods. We don't believe in working without a purpose.
Things are done differently with us and we think that's a good thing. Find out why.


what we do

Going beyond traditional public relations, we craft digital media campaigns that pack a punch. Influencer collaborations, social media management, special event planning and content marketing are just a few of our favorite things. We tend to think of communications from the outside-in, working proactively to generate positive brand awareness.  


Industries we love


startups, small businesses and independently owned brands



From urban bistros to sustainable farm-to-table honest eating, we know good food. Family-owned wineries and local CSA farming? Let us tell you a thing or two. Our clients provide unmatched guest experiences combined with an unwavering commitment to quality. 


We represent clients who have a passion to inspire healthier living by providing services and products that change the way we think, shop and live. The products are organic, sustainable and locally-sourced whenever possible. The services enhance the mind, body, soul and environment. 


Unforgettable adventures. Magical moments. Instagram-worthy photo ops. From event venues to boutique hotels to rural tourism, we build on meaningful experiences to bring guests back time and time again. Together, we'll go places.


Don't see your niche? Don't worry. We work with individual entrepreneurs and brands across industries worldwide.
