What we do

Grasslands is a journalism-minded agency, helping clients in a variety of industries with informed public relations, thoughtful content marketing, contextual social media, top-notch thought leadership work, impactful newsletter campaigns and compelling event execution.

But what does a qualifier like journalism-minded mean for a full-service communications firm? For the journalists and marcom professionals at Grasslands, it means using only vetted information, distributing professionally written copy, getting things right the first time, listening intently to our clients and media partners, thriving on tough deadlines and employing self-mandated ethical standards while carrying out the important work of our clients’ public relations and marketing.

Our Content Team, lead by 20-year newspaper veteran Ricardo Baca, has nearly 45 years of top-level journalism experience at outlets including The Denver Post, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Rocky Mountain News, The Daily Beast and elsewhere.

Our Public Relations Team, lead by a 20-year New York City agency veteran, has nearly 35 years of high-level communications experience with clients including People magazine, IKEA North America, K12 Inc. and the American Wind Energy Association.

In the coming year, Grasslands plans to debut an in-house Investor Relations Team as well as a full-service Advertising Team, which will assist clients with branding, graphic design, copywriting and web / app design.

Content and community are the core of everything Grasslands does, and our speak-for-themselves bona fides and A-list clientele point to the high quality of our work.

While much of our work continues to focus on highly regulated industries like the legal cannabis space—where we proudly serve as respected thought leaders with more than 20 years of experience in the regulated market, collectively—our clients in more traditional industries find that our careful attention to detail and nuanced approach to messaging thrives in any category or discipline.

Just a few of our specialties:

• Full-service public relations

• SEO-minded blog creation / maintenance

• Thought leadership content marketing

• Social media development / maintenance

• Newsletter creation / management

• Full-scale event / conference production

• General content writing / ghostwriting

• Anything that informs the world about the dynamic work you and your team are producing

But enough about us. What about you and your business?

Have you been thinking about creating a more meaningful relationship with the media? About refreshing your website, cleaning up the writing, art direction and navigation your customers see thousands of times a day? About writing op-eds for targeted publications, and making sure those pieces shine with timeliness and authority? About having a professional write that important speech for your next big keynote or conference? About rebranding your business entirely, preparing it for the monumental growth ahead?

Gripping narratives. Professional presentation. Expert advice. And thoughtful strategy from a team with decades of experience on all sides of the public relations / communications paradigm.

Welcome to Grasslands.
