Agency Enhances Website and Application Development Capabilities

 

Yes& announced today that it has acquired P’unk Avenue, a creative and digital studio named after Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia, where it was founded. Its team adds significant branding, strategy, creative thinking, user experience, website design, and application development expertise to the Yes& portfolio of services. P’unk Avenue is led by its President, Anthony Robinson, a recognized leader in higher education marketing. 

Dedicated to doing good work with good people,” P’unk Avenue has developed a strong presence in the higher education and not-for-profit space. P’unk Avenue’s clientele is culturally aligned with many mission- and purpose-driven clients on the Yes& roster, including associations, charities, and government agencies. 

“I am privileged to welcome Anthony and the P’unk Avenue team to Yes&,” said Robert W. Sprague, President & CEO, Yes&. “They are a delightful and talented group of people who bring with them outstanding capabilities in design and digital along with great positioning in the higher education and not-for-profit verticals.”  

This acquisition provides Yes& with the opportunity to bring its “positivity & possibility” model to new verticals and take a material step towards its vision of being the go-to agency based in the mid-Atlantic. At a time where all marketing is digital marketing, P’unk Avenue’s web development, UI/UX strategy and digital design strengths will help Yes& address an even more comprehensive range of client needs. 

As part of the acquisition, Yes& has brought on all P’unk Avenue staffers. Anthony Robinson will bring his skills to the Yes& leadership team, helping to grow the P’unk Avenue workstream and making sure P'unk Avenue’s capabilities seamlessly and cohesively integrate into Yes&’s client work. 

"We’re honored to be welcomed into the greater Yes& family. By combining P’unk Avenue’s digital expertise with all that Yes& has to offer, we look forward to serving our partners in new ways,” said Robinson. “P’unk Avenue will continue to be a place that focuses on a diverse human experience — and elevating the important work and missions of our partners.

Yes& is committed to maintaining great relationships with P’unk Avenue clients, with the bold approach and energy P’unk Avenue has brought to their work to date.

Creating Connections between PIO’s and Press Breaking down barriers between public information officers (PIO) and the working press can sometimes seem daunting. It doesn’t need to be. The Society of Environmental Journalists conference in Houston, TX brought together the best environmental reporters and leading policy leaders. The conference also attracted leading non-profit organizations like Environmental Defense Fund, Friends of the Earth and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). Several Biden Administration officials served as panelists and educators at SEJ. Attending PIOs were truly able to meet, mingle and provide context for their important jobs in this enviro-driven Administration. Working together, attending field-based education events, kayaking trips on local rivers and field trips to Houston Zoo to look at endangered species, journalists and officials unified. Barriers to conversation quickly dropped. Two notable panels of the event involved the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The first panel was proctored by Washington Post Environmental Justice Reporter Darryl Fears, who has served as the lead environmental correspondent for some 20 years. The second panel on Environmental Justice addressed the stark “cancer alley” health concerns of Louisiana and Texas; industrial pollution which impacts diverse or multicultural communities in disproportionate number; and how EPA is standing up Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice (DEIJ) communications within its own ranks.

The past two years have been challenging for association membership programs. When the pandemic hit, the entire nation was forced to shift their regular schedules to a life working from home. In-person meetings were moved to online platforms and everyday business lunches that employees looked forward to were no longer possible. The working world went remote, and managers were at a loss for how to communicate with and manage their employees.
