Holmes Associates “best fits” a team and resources to meet client goals and budgets.


Holmes Associates was created from Shelly Holmes’ years as a senior partner in international and regional agencies, overseeing complex clients and multimillion-dollar budgets.

Shelly saw that many clients could be better served with a more flexible, scalable, cost-efficient and results-driven approach than many agencies were offering. This approach allows Shelly to work with organizations in various life cycles and circumstances.

Our Holmes Associates team members have depth, breadth – and vision! They come from large agencies, corporations, newsrooms, startups and more.  They have experience on everything from multimillion-dollar campaigns to quick turn-around projects. Shelly assigns and oversees team members to clients, providing value when and how needed, and allowing for adjustments for the client’s benefit — NOT for billable quotas.  If team members or resources need to change during the course of the engagement to achieve goals, it is done efficiently and to best effect.
