Who We Are

AKPD Message and Media stands out as one of the nation’s most successful and prominent firms representing Democratic candidates and progressive causes. For over three decades, we’ve advised some of the country’s most recognized leaders and some of its most talented public servants.

AKPD and its principals led the creation and execution of President Barack Obama’s campaign message and media. We guided the campaign from its explosive start, to its upset primary wins, through the toughest presidential nomination process in modern times to a smashing general election victory.

It’s the same strategic discipline and creativity we’ve contributed to campaigns for Mayor, Governor, U.S. Senate and Congress as we’ve taken on some of the toughest battles for Democrats in the past 30 years.

Thank you for paying us a visit. We hope you enjoy learning more about our clients, our approach and our people.
