A Little About Us


It’s a provoking color best known to symbolize fulfillment, wisdom and magic. Rare in nature, it combines the stability and coolness of blue and the hot fiery energy of red. The hue lives on its own as a representation of creativity and independence. It is no coincidence that these attributes are fundamental to the composition of Purple Door Communications (PDC).


More than 15 years ago, Sam Kennedy took the marketing strategy, storytelling and PR/communications expertise she had cultivated and applied her love of brand building to form PDC. Sam began the business in a virtual agency model, sitting inside a makeshift office in her garage that was recognizable to the outside world by a robustly colored purple door – Behr’s Plum Swirl – now a proven harbinger of the company’s success. Today, PDC boasts both communications + social program offerings as well as an event execution division: Purple Door Productions (PDP).


By providing senior level staff and counsel, without virtually any overhead, PDC was able to break free from the traditional agency structure and stretch client budgets farther than a large organizational model would allow. The team harnessed their collective strengths and continues to specialize in developing strategic integrated campaigns founded on key insights and research to create meaningful and measurable results.
