Our Story


 

Story and Strategy

By helping organizations tell their stories, we aim to speed up the pace of change. We built our model around providing the highest quality service at the most affordable price, with a sliding scale to open the door to small organizations with limited budgets.
 

Bigger, Faster, More Meaningful Change

MediaDesk was founded in 2013 to support New Mexico’s nonprofits. Our founders knew that the organizations that are strongest, fastest and make the most difference are highly connected with their communities. That connectedness doesn’t happen on its own; an essential part of building -- and sustaining -- connections is telling stories, and telling them well.
 

We New Mexico

Since 2013 our clients have ranged from small, community-based nonprofits to large national foundations. While our work takes us all over, we remain headquartered in the downtown of our home city, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Our Values

MediaDesk prioritizes sustainability, shared resources and community development. We share values for a healthy workplace, equitable and sustainable business and thriving community. As a community-focused organization, every year we reinvest any profit in our community, our skills and services and in growing our team.

About Our Founders:

Henry Rael of the McCune Charitable Foundation served as a key mentor and driver for the vision of MediaDesk, informing the structure and focus from his background in corporate communications and the philanthropic sector. Sommer Smith co-founded the agency and continues to serve as our creative director. The company is now spearheaded by chief executive officer José Viramontes.
