CS-Effect (formerly Communication Strategies Group):
A strategic communications agency.

The CS-Effect is not just a name change. It’s a promise to you; and a driver for us.  

Why the new brand? Our new brand emphasizes results. It demonstrates our commitment to strategic thinking that drives impact.

But I LOVED CSG. Is it all going to change? Nope. Not a chance. Same team. Same dedication to our clients. And the same integrated marketing communication expertise and collaborative approaches that have helped us grow since 2003. And at 15 years old, it was about time our brand caught up with us!

We create integrated communication and marketing strategies that cause the greatest effect.
