Frequently Asked Questions

Does Statement work with nonprofits of all sizes?

While our sweet spot lies in organizations with 10-100 people, we excel in addressing challenges and tailoring solutions for a wide range of clients. Don’t let size be your limitation. We adapt our team to meet the unique needs of each organization, delivering right-sized and strategic creative solutions.

Does Statement only work with nonprofits?

No, not exclusively! While our heart is in serving nonprofits, our diverse industry experience equips us to bring a dynamic, problem-solving perspective to any project. We’ve spent decades developing creative work spanning B2B and B2C, ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 companies across industries like fintech, health & wellness, life insurance, law, and more.

What sets Statement apart from other consultants or agencies?

We like to say we're not quite a consultant, not quite an agency – we're the sweet spot in between. We offer more robust strategy, multidisciplinary expertise and project management support than the typical consultant, and we bring a uniquely flexible style to our partnerships that differs from full-service agencies. We believe every dollar of a marketing budget should be stewarded with care, especially for nonprofits, so we work to maximize efficiency and impact in every project we touch. Don't just take our word for it: See what our clients are saying here.

Where is your team based?

While Statement’s co-founders call Chicago home, our team is fully remote and distributed coast to coast. We've spent years crafting a robust network of talent and believe that curating the right talent for each project is vital to successful outcomes.

How do you structure your project fees?

Whether project-based or retainer, our fees are structured with transparency and flexibility in mind. We work closely with you to understand the scope of the project, its complexity, and budget constraints. This allows us to create a customized solution that aligns with the specific needs and goals of your organization.

  • Project-based: Projects that have a defined scope, timeline, and set of deliverables are the best fit for a fixed fee structure. Clients like this option when they want to “trial” our agency on a single project before committing to a longer-term partnership. 

  • Retainer-based: Our customized retainers work well for clients that have a range of ongoing creative needs. Retainers allow us to embed and invest in your organization’s brand vs. just doing a single project. Typical retainer engagements range from 3-12+ months.
How long do your projects take?

It varies based on factors like on project complexity, client involvement, review and edit rounds, etc. We pride ourselves on delivering quality work, so we don’t overcommit or compromise to expedite the process.

Our general turnaround times:


  • Brand and Marketing Roadmaps:
6-8+ weeks
  • Brand Identity Refresh: 6-8+ weeks
  • Campaign Development: 6-8+ weeks
  • Impact/Annual Reports: 6-8+ weeks
  • Websites: 8-14+ weeks
I’m not sure which service we need. Can you help?

Absolutely! Clients often come to us needing advice on which service would best meet their needs. For example, we’ve had clients initially desire a logo refresh and realize during our conversation that a light brand strategy exercise was the true priority and greatest value for their dollars. Reach out to schedule a free consultation call. During our initial discussions, we'll explore your organization's objectives, challenges, and vision, and work together to define a tailored creative plan that best aligns with your goals.

Our Partners

Together, we’ve built strategies, elevated brands, set and surpassed goals, and more. We’re proud to have partnered with these organizations to advance their missions.

Statement helped to get to the heart of what we needed to put forth – bringing incredible clarity and simplicity to our messaging. We were so pleased with their work that we subsequently brought them in to help with the website design, and they once again knocked it out of the park, which I find to be rare in an agency— to have such deep expertise in both content and design.

JENNY SUMMERS

SENIOR CREATIVE MANAGER, TIDES

Working with Statement was like having a psychologist for your brand. You tell them the situations facing your company, and they help you come to the right conclusions to move forward in a more defined direction and with more confidence.

JON CAHEN

MARKETING DIRECTOR, JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD

My consulting firm had a wonderful experience working with Statement to refresh our overall branding and create a modern website! They took great care not only to understand our vision for the finished product, but also to really understand our "voice". I'm so proud to share our site with prospective clients - it really does a great job of representing who we are and what we can offer!

Statement is a very talented group and a great resource for ENTACT. When I reach out to them, I know they'll either know how to solve our challenge or can identify someone in their network who can. They provide personalized, capable service, every time.

SCOTT CHAFIN

Statement has been a valuable extension of our in-house team. Not only do they know our business model well, they learned the complex industry we play in to position us as a strategic leader in an increasingly competitive market.
