WHO WE ARE
Malbert Media is an LGBTQ-owned full-service strategic communications and consulting firm providing direct mail and digital services, general consulting, and fundraising support. We are more than political consultants...
We are experienced and battle-tested storytellers who have worked in the trenches and won the toughest battles.
We rely on grit and determination to bring a process-oriented approach to help Democrats, Progressives, and aligned organizations make meaningful change and drive towards victory.
The status quo is B.S. We aren’t here to listen to the noise — whether it’s from party
insiders or outside consultants — we’re here to craft meaningful and impactful
messaging that is authentic and meets voters where they are. We provide a client-
centered, custom, and localized focus to the services we provide and ensure your
campaign, and your messaging, is about you and your authentic self so it can break
through the noise.
We are process oriented and place a strong focus on creative and print production and management with attention to detail. We are here to collaborate and ensure your strategy is creative, authentic, and tailored to the right audiences at the right time. We draw from more than a decade of experience in the toughest fights at all levels of the ballot and we ensure every client receives the same level of customer service, whether running for local judge or for federal office. With a team who’s managed and played roles in some of the largest mail programs in the country, we have seen it all and have developed the best internal and client processes to keep projects running smoothly.
Storytelling and authenticity are at the core of our work. Through impactful design and keeping an open mind about strategy and creative, we help you plan ahead, brace for the bumps in the road, and get you past the finish line.
