We develop and execute integrated online strategies; we build websites, develop mobile apps, manage social media, run email campaigns and optimize online fundraising.

We produce and execute radio, television and digital advertising, and design comprehensive buying strategies taking advantage of microtargeting and cable targeting.

We design a finance plan with multiple, flexible, detailed raise and spend budgets, provide lists, materials and training for candidate call time, write and execute fundraising direct mail, provide access and training for fundraising database, provide high-level contact and guidance (including questionnaire responses) for labor and affinity PACs, conduct finance research, and provide compliance advice and assistance.

Whether your goal is elected office, winning hearts and minds or pushing back against bad policy, we can help you not only figure it out, but make it happen.
We know campaigns aren’t compartmentalized, and that different skills are important at different stages. That’s why we decided from the beginning to do a lot of things well.
Indigo is a group of professionals with talent in every discipline in communications, advocacy and electoral campaigns: strategy, old media, new media, social media, digital, finance, research, mail, field, press, and event management. We also staff campaigns in many instances.
On the campaign side, we do a lot of challenge races in difficult places, and collectively have been involved in over 100 campaigns, ranging from Presidentials to county races.

We provide issue and opposition research (“votes and quotes”), appearance and debate prep. This research will, of course, also be available for multiple purposing. We coordinate and work closely with polling firms.

Who We Are

Our Values and Team

Trust in your calling, make sure your calling’s true
Think of others, the others think of you

Silly rule golden words make, practice, practice makes perfect
I Believe (Berry Buck Mills Stipe)


Mission Statement

Indigo is the darkest shade of blue. We chose it on purpose, not as cool branding, but to signify our mission.
Indigo is a full-service consulting firm that exists to help progressive candidates, causes and labor organizations achieve measurable success. We do that by providing both actionable strategic advice and a broad spectrum of practical, tactical support.
We’re not interested in being famous.
We’re not interested in winning awards voted on by other consultants. What we do should only serve the clients’ interests.
We don’t do this to make mountains of money. We make a living, but we will never work on corporate “astroturf” campaigns for the dough.
We trust in our calling.
