We are passionate about language that lifts …

With dual expertise in copywriting and graphic design, Paraphrase Communications creates verbal and visual messaging for companies and causes in the areas of health & wellness, education, environment, and economy. We help new companies establish their positioning and develop a strong communications platform that will give them visibility and legitimacy. We also work with mature companies who need to evolve their messaging and collateral to reflect a shift in strategic priorities or organizational structure, and to broaden their reach and strengthen their appeal.

To paraphrase is to restate an idea in another form so that its meaning becomes clear. Effective communication is the ability to use words and images to help people understand, process, and share information. And we believe communication is the key to living in a world that is happy, healthy, and safe. 

… and people that inspire.

Our clients and colleagues are smart people doing some amazing work in the world. We feel honored to be able to work along side them, as we combine our expertise to make ideas and information beautiful, accessible, and shareable.
