Edgar Snyder & Associates (ESA) is one of the most well-known brands in the Pittsburgh region. With approximately 40 years of experience as a leading personal injury law firm, the company sought a new agency partner to help continue the evolution of its brand and marketing strategy. Effective immediately, Brunner has been selected as agency of record (AOR), responsible for overall media planning and creative strategy, including traditional media buying, as well as paid social, digital display, and digital video.
Brunner’s own Meredith Klein, PR + Brand Engagement Director, has been selected as a Rising Star honoree in Ragan’s and PR Daily’s Communicators of the Year & Rising Star Awards, Class of 2021. Ragan and PR Daily’s Rising Star Awards recognize the industry’s best individual communications practitioners and teams, and it is no surprise to the Brunner team Meredith was honored as one of the best in the industry.
The creative campaign promoted City of Asylum’s freedom of expression mission. Each poster and social post featured a banned book that is available in City of Asylum’s bookstore. The ads featured fictitious book reviews from three different dictators, including Kim Jong-un, Bashar al-Assad and Nicolás Maduro with the subjects providing reviews about books banned in their own countries. Not only did the campaign promote City of Asylum’s mission—it encouraged bookstore sales to help support the organization.

During a year in which employees worked from home and were challenged to push creativity and strategic thinking to new heights amid insurmountable uncertainty, Brunner rose to the occasion. During the 2021 Renaissance Awards, held virtually on Thursday, January 28, 2021 by The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Pittsburgh chapter, winners were announced across more than a dozen categories. From the pool of applicants only one was chosen to receive the event’s top honor, Best in Show. And this year, that recipient was Brunner for its B2C digital campaign on behalf of client Zep, which brought awareness to its leading cleaning solutions among consumers.
