ROGERS PARTNERS Architects+Urban Designers Jump-starting the reputation of a new firm


Rob Rogers started his own firm after 20 years in partnership with Jonathan Marvel. Less than a year later, he had just finished the Henderson Hopkins School in Baltimore and wanted to get attention for the project to bring recognition for his new firm. In less than two months, Hausman placed a story about the school by Michael Kimmelman on the front page of The New York Times. Following that assignment, Hausman developed a long-term integrated communications strategy to introduce Rogers’ new firm to the media and continue to keep the firm in the news.

  3. Produced and edited content, including copy for the firm’s new book, Learning by Practice

  4. Scheduled desk-side visits with editors, arranged tours of key projects, and placed articles in prominent publications

We had a great project and wanted to make a big splash with it. Hausman developed a creative and comprehensive plan for telling the story about it. Within just two months, they got the Henderson Hopkins School on the front page of The New York Times. Their PR efforts put the project on the map, and boosted our firm’s national exposure much farther.
