The MEPR Agency, LLC Creates a New Brand Identity, Streamlines Name

Agency refreshes its look to fall in line with new goals and expectations

Nashville, TN (April 1, 2010)—Miss Ellaneous Public Relations has undergone a re-branding with a new logo and new moniker, The MEPR Agency, LLC.  The boutique public relations, event planning, and branding agency will not skip a beat as the new name and identity will better align with the organization’s goals of being an energetic, out of the box, and modern agency.  Branding new trends, creating relationships with media and community organizations, serving as a gatekeeper for clients, and hosting and producing events in Nashville will remain the agency’s primary focus.

“For the past three years we have worked diligently to represent some of the most progressive brands in Nashville and we felt it was appropriate to create a fresh identity that captured the true essence of The MEPR Agency,” shares Founder Kia Jarmon.

The MEPR acronym has been used among clients and the community since the company’s start in mid-2006, however the official change will match the branding efforts of the company, which the agency is known for with clients.  “Ultimately, we encourage our clients to brand, brand, brand and we realized that we were in need of a branding make-over,” said Jarmon.

The thriving PR agency also created a more stream-lined website and exciting new logo.  The website will now serve as the online ‘business card’ for the organization.  The agency will remain consistent with its signature colors, grey and purple, with a slight update to exude the crisp and bright yet classic and fun approach of the agency.

The shift in the agency also laid the foundation for the implementation of The ME Factor, the consulting arm; it is a unique opportunity for The MEPR Agency to serve as the clients mirror so that they might see a positive reflection.  This avenue is for clients who are not prepared for an extensive PR campaign but instead need counsel on branding, organizational structure, marketing opportunities, and preparing an effective PR strategy that will be launched when the company is ready.

All of these changes are just in time for the celebration of The MEPR Agency’s Kia Jarmon being named as the one of the Nashville Business Journal’s Forty Under 40, which was awarded March 25th.

Under the new name, The MEPR Agency, LLC will continue to work with a wide range of clients in the fashion, film, music, non-profit, politics and sports industries.  The agency has represented and garnered attention for the Kid Electric Concerts, Darnell Levine, the Music City Stars (semi-pro basketball team), Lovenoise, Chiminus Enterprises, PlayDate Nashville, lifestyle consultant, Koren Stevenson, House of Representatives Candidate, Steven Turner, NAACP, NABJ,  Bizzy Bone, the South East Urban Music Conference, the Atlanta Hip Hop Film Festival, the International Black Film Festival of Nashville, Mykelti Williamson (Bubba in Forrest Gump), Debbie Allen (of FAME), Highland Music Publishing, Epic Measures, Trinity Wholeness Ministries, Mike Rayburn, BrownWave Entertainment, Mr. Tennessee and the Mr. Tennessee Competition, and Center Stage Magazine

“The PR, marketing, and event planning industries remain fluid and it is vital to update, refresh and stay ahead of the curve.  This change is refreshing and reminds us that we must continue to create our own trends.  We have adopted a fresh approach that will challenge our current and prospective clients to follow suit.  With these changes we aim to function more effectively for our clients to most accurately represent their brands,” shares Jarmon.
