Our co-founders, Lauren Ward and Amy Riddle, met nearly 13 years ago when Amy was working as a graphic designer and Lauren directed communications for a global hospitality company. They later began to work together as client and vendor, and found they both shared a passion for pristine communications and gorgeous design

The coincidences don’t stop with their worker bee-driven work ethics. Their oldest sons were born one day apart, their husbands share the same name, they are now moms to two boys each, and they both delight in bringing simplicity and order into the world. (Which makes sense, because their homes could go all Lord of the Flies if left to the devices of the men in their lives.) Lauren’s passion is in developing strategies and delivering communications that resonate and get results, while Amy’s is all about creating an aesthetic that brings brands to life with continuity and a fresh, modern approach. No matter the chosen medium – online, print, social, packaging, you name it – Buzz delivers messages that get noticed and get to the point.

Why Buzz? Because bees are loyal, diligent workers. As they move from flower to flower to gather nectar, their legs pass along pollen to each plant, which is vital to the growth of our ecosystem. And that’s just what we do for our clients. We help brands flourish through clean and beautiful messaging spread to employees and customers alike.

We go to work for our clients as an extension of their teams. And we’d be honored to create some buzz for you.
