"…their ability to juggle so many projects with precision and creativity"

“I’ve worked with ANPR at both Slate and Panoply and, in both cases, have always been impressed by their ability to juggle so many projects with precision and creativity. We hired them to spearhead PR efforts at Panoply because we knew they’d be deft and skillful at drawing on our association with Slate and leveraging the organization’s brand recognition while ensuring that we’d be seen as a completely separate entity with goals distinct from the mothership.”
