Borshoff is lucky to receive numerous requests for brand strategy work, typically resulting in an organizational rebrand on some level.

For over three decades, Borshoff has had the honor and pleasure to work with the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities (GCPD) to educate and initiate behavior change toward people with disabilities. When we first started working with the Council in 1987, we set out to create an enduring platform that would mobilize grassroots advocacy and create awareness for people with disabilities. Every year since then, Borshoff has partnered with the GCPD to create a campaign for Disability Awareness Month in March throughout Indiana. To illustrate our approach in action, we’re sharing this year’s work and some helpful resources.Read More
Being surrounded and supported by independent, hard-working and well-rounded women has been instrumental for me in my career and my life. My grandmothers were smart businesswomen. My mom worked important jobs inside and outside of the home. My sister was a small business owner. My close group of friends have all excelled in different careers.

Perhaps you were watching history unfold with the launch of the space shuttle Discovery or the second presidential win of Ronald Reagan, who earned 525 electoral votes, the most ever in history. And then there was the legendary Super Bowl ad where Apple introduced the Macintosh based on Orwell’s 1984. Maybe you were in kindergarten, high school or college (like me). Maybe you weren’t even born yet!Read More
