We’re proud of the work we’ve done with our clients and believe success is found in strong partnerships. But don’t take it from us - see what folks have to say about their experiences working with the Field Guide team.
Our stories are our legacy, and when it comes to sharing them it is very important to get the narrative right, so having someone you know and trust, who can listen and effectively communicate on your behalf is key. We've been so blessed to work with Field Guide–Mary and her team listen intently to understand your voice and make sure your story is being represented as they should be out in the world. This means a lot to me because a big part of what we do is share food to tell the stories and traditions of the Hmong people; it’s about ingredients and flavors but also our value of hospitality and welcome. My team and I trust Field Guide to have our interests at heart. Field Guide is very strong in their communications skills-they are always up for collaborating on new ideas, finessing existing ones and helping us navigate opportunities, whether it’s a Kickstarter campaign, an event, a restaurant opening, or an interview. Field Guide is a part of my core team, one that makes me feel supported as I take on new projects and build this business, which is about Hmong cooking but is really ultimately a love letter to my parents and to my people.

Keg and Case has been tremendously fortunate to have engaged Field Guide and most notably Mary. Upon meeting Mary and sharing with her the vision/mission of Keg and Case, it was immediately apparent that our values were aligned. Community, reciprocity and collaboration had been the guiding principles of Keg and Case and were in fact a prerequisite for Field Guide in entering this space.
I found Mary’s participation to be one of genuine interest, consideration for a complex organism in the making and it’s moving parts. She conducts her work with both an intimate understanding of PR/communications and real synergy with the team she is a part of and its specific goals. This is exactly what our project needed and we found it.

Field Guide is a wonderful resource. When I made the decision to go launch a Kickstarter in the fall of 2012, they jumped right in, joined the team with helped craft our strategy and messaging. Their insight and writing skills were invaluable. The Field Guides stuck with it through the entire crazy ride and helped keep the campaign energy and morale alive, the messaging on point, and they led the coordination of key elements that made our Kickstarter a wonderful success: from the launch party to the rewards structure, celebration events and media relations. (And most importantly they kept me sane :))
Field Guides are now my go-to when I have extra projects including presentations and articles — they understand how I think and how I work, they support me in articulating my voice and the mission of the Birchwood for any audience.
