A 2021 Recap: Glowing and Growing


We are proud to share that Firesign earned a 2021 Platinum MarCom Award for the category of Team Achievement. The MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding work by marketing and communication professionals; this year’s content drew more than 6,000 entries from 41 countries.

Firesign was one of just 17 organizations to be recognized a Platinum winner in the new Team Achievement category. The agency was honored for successful results achieved for clients and significant growth during economic uncertainty. (Not to mention the early arrival of a baby, multiple quarantines with toddlers and viral variants.)

This comes on the heels of our “three-peat” winning every marketing category in Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s Reader Rankings: Best PR Firm, Best Website Design Agency and Best Business Development Coaching.

Thank you to the friends and colleagues who have supported us along the way, and most of all, thank you to the clients who trust us with their brands and communications.


We are excited about our new expanded team, which has allowed us to expand our service offerings for law firms and legal industry service providers. Together, we build credibility and clientele for legal industry clients through:

  • Brand Identity
  • Websites
  • Content
  • Credentials
  • Social Media
  • Searchability

Several of our new additions have specific legal industry experience, including a former paralegal and a reporter who covered the legal beat. All share our commitment to bring warmth and light to legal marketing.

This year, we welcomed:

They join the leadership team of Katie Hollar Barnard, CEO; Amy Nouri, vice president; and Katie McNeil, creative director.

We would love to put our new capabilities and bench depth to work for you in 2022. (And we will try to limit the number of Katies and Kates moving forward.)

All the best to you and yours this Thanksgiving and beyond.

Team Firesign
