Where Strategy and Implementation Meet

We are higher education marketing and communications consultants specializing in
strategic connection and practical application — providing systems to fulfill the solutions we create together.

CONSULTING REIMAGINED

We believe consulting should provide more than ideas. It should empower, equip and practically assist your institution with implementing strategies to move you forward. Good thing we're more than just consultants — we're printers, marketers, communication managers, designers, writers, developers, producers, analysts and thought partners.

Oh, and we don’t think great consulting has to come at a great cost. That’s why we have multiple
pricing structures that can fit any budget.

TESTIMONIALS

“Liberty has transcended vendor status, as I think of the team as a creative partner. Liberty is a trusted resource. The company’s approach is based on experience, creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Their experts took the time to understand my university, our students and our competitive differentiators. Together, we developed a video project to attract prospective students. Liberty’s customized approach allowed us to overcome internal obstacles and get a creative, well-received product to market.”

"Working with Liberty Creative Solutions is a joy from start to finish. First, the service is impeccable. Bob, Jeff, Adam and the entire Liberty team made sure every aspect of Kankakee Community College’s campaign strategy was strong and brought the intended results. Second, Lisette and the talented designers made our vision a reality and inspired our audiences to act. Not only did we get results, but we also brought our projects in under budget. Our partnership with Liberty is one of our best vendor relationships, and we’re grateful for their ongoing collaboration."
