The Vision to Communicate.
Vision is a family business with a desire to do great work that makes a difference for our clients. Our mission is to build solid relationships with clients who understand the value of strategic thinking and appreciate how far our vision can take them. We combine that vision with outstanding creative talent, unwavering commitment, ongoing dedication, and personal integrity.
Our roots are planted in Western Pennsylvania, but our reach extends far beyond. From our base in Punxsutawney, and our office just outside Pittsburgh, founder Lee Greenblatt and his sons work with an array of specialists in fields from branding to broadband, from market positioning to multimedia, from copywriting to corporate identity.
Having spent much of his life in the small Western Pennsylvania community of Punxsutawney, Lee didn’t have to think very long before deciding where to launch his vision. Far from being a hindrance, our location has proven to be an advantage. At Vision, we are proud of our team of seasoned professionals who answer only to our clients and ourselves.
The clients we serve represent many industries: from food service to banking, from healthcare to manufacturing, from high-tech to insurance and investments, to name a few. Whether business to business or business to consumer, working in such a broad range of disciplines helps keep our minds sharp and our ideas fresh.
