Storytellers. advocates. connoisseurs.

We are a Cleveland-based boutique public relations and marketing consultancy for startups, small businesses and independently owned hospitality and lifestyle brands. 

We are storytellers, strategists and social pioneers committed to crafting compelling strategies and campaigns that shift perceptions and demand results. Cultivating relationships, igniting conversations that matter and shining a light on the business you've worked so hard to build is what we do.

With us, things are done differently. As a small (but mighty) team, we choose to work in an entrepreneurial environment offering affordable service with a personalized level of attention to each of our clients. We stay in contact, we work collaboratively and we share a passion for business with our clients. We work hard, but we have fun doing it. 

We're there around the clock to support your goals. After all, we wouldn't be here without you. 



Our core values

Be intentional



We are rooted in the belief that our lives and our careers can align. We believe in working for a cause and doing so with purpose.




The Founder


Jane began her career in editorial, reporting and marketing roles for a broadcast news organization before moving into communication roles in both the private and public sectors.

Having navigated both sides of the pitch, Jane founded J. Richards Creative to do what she loves most - to help build brands through the power of storytelling.

Passionate about empowering other entrepreneurs in reaching their goals, her work at JRC is to provide creative solutions that impact the growth and attention of brands. 

Equal parts strategist and communicator, she’s always thinking of what’s next and the best methods to deliver your story to the right people. Fueled by triple shot lattes, she works diligently to deliver results and an unparalleled client experience. She believes in building a life and career that align and hopes to help her clients do the same.

When she’s not working, she can be found exploring new trails with her husband and puppy.
