Frequently Asked Questions
How large is Andrea Schnoor Communications?
We are a steady team of four. While we occasionally expand to more as client needs require, the core has remained the same since ASC’s founding in 2003.
What fuels our passion and makes us get to work every morning?
We genuinely like what we do. The communications industry is changing rapidly, but at its heart it is still about communicators and audiences. The term “buzz” may be inspired by the hum of bees in their hives, but it is about the emotion, energy, excitement and anticipation generated by the products, services and motivations of individuals and organizations. In an information-rich world people and companies are constantly in transformation, creating energy that allows ideas to thrive. ASC is a distributor of fresh information and ideas through myriad channels that help create and then feed this buzz with substance and knowledge.
How important are our clients?
Client-agency relationships are at the top of the list for ASC. We get excited about the projects our clients are involved with and their transformation into successful companies, artists or non-profit organizations. Genuine enthusiasm is something we can’t fake – that’s why we occasionally have to say no to ideas or projects that come our way. The media trusts us, and we value that relationship as much as we value our clients.
What is like to work with ASC?
We are open-minded, honest and effective. Our priority will always be to position our clients at the very top of the print and digital media landscape. Our footing in the travel and art worlds often makes for great crossover promotions and ideas. We are quick on our feet and clever in a pinch, and we think that the term “digital-detox” is overrated.
