Nancy helped me extract the most important information when it came to establishing my brand's identity. She helped me distill my business' mission and vision into a narrative that embodies what I believe in as a business owner and as a consumer. Plus, she did it in a personable and approachable manner that put me at ease throughout the process.
It has been a dream working with Clew. Nancy has a keen understanding of how to build sound strategies and marketing plans, and makes the process fun all the while.

Working with Nancy has been wonderful. She is very organized and will be there with you every step of the way. Before working with her my brand was almost nonexistent.

She is helping distill the essence of our brand, which in turn is shepherding us into a new growth era. I feel like I know my own brand better now and can communicate that to my customers in a clearer, more fun way.
Hi, I'm Nancy.And speaking of branding...
I’m still waiting for my name to make a comeback on the Baby Name charts. I used to be a good little Corporate American, albeit one with a slight attitude problem. My relationship with work was obsessive and all consuming.
The things I loved to do – brand strategy, communications, creative ideation and workshop facilitation – lost their spark when I was exclusively serving clients who failed to inspire affinity or share my values. The past few years have seen a meteoric rise of people like me opting out: pursuing entrepreneurship, freelancing, and new business models.
Working with this audience allowed me to recapture the passion I misplaced along the way. Traditional Agency and Consulting Models have excluded many people. It’s not just a matter of size and budget. BIPOC, non-binary folk, and women struggle for access and to be taken seriously without codeswitching or making themselves smaller.
I launched Clew Communications to provide top-notch creative strategies to anyone committed to challenging the status quo.
WHAT IS A BRAND?And Why is branding important?
A brand is more than a logo; your brand is the overlap between what you say you are and what other people say you are. You can’t control what people say, but you can influence the conversation with consistent, memorable messaging and a client experience that delivers on your brand promise.

When Theseus arrived in Crete to defeat the Minotaur, Ariadne gave him a clew - a ball of red yarn - to unwind as he entered the labyrinth. After slaying the monster, Theseus retraced the yarn trail and climbed out of the confusion of the maze. Over time, clew evolved into the modern word clue - something to help you solve a puzzle.
