Fresh ideas get business slammin’. They get the
party started. And they’re what we’ve been all
about for over twenty years.
Our principal, Steve Durning, brings a lot to the
Our niche party. He has managed production, creative and
client service at various small agencies in Toronto
and Chicago. He can make presentations, write
strategy and generate dozens of concepts to
come up with the “bomb.”
Durning Communications brings agency capabili-
ties without the typical agency headaches. We
work best with clients who must do more with
less – who know the value of marketing, but need
to know that every dollar invested is well spent.
Durning Communications travels light.
We have no full-time employees. Instead, on an
as-needed basis, the industry’s best independant
consultants are available to lend their expertise to
your specific marketing need.
Cathy’s been on the media side of the ad biz for
Durning over 35 years serving as Media Director of major
ad agencies, VP Ad Director of Hasbro Toys, and
Communications owned her own media-buying operation in both
Associates New York and Chicago.
Ann has managed all facets of marketing commu-
nications ranging from national consumer events
to local and business-to-business programs. As
account director, she is adept at assessing clients’
marketing needs and driving business.
Karl has developed and managed dozens of web
sites along with custom DVD and CD ROM
presentations. He’s been known to dazzle with
ink-on-paper apps as well.
