Creative. Thoughtful. Effective.
This is simply who we are. Whether through the perfect words, a picture that says everything, or an event for the ages, we love helping people tell their stories.
We are a small team experienced in public relations, marketing, content creation, event planning, and related project management. Based in Kitsap County, near the Seattle area, we work with clients of all sizes throughout the country.
Vaughan Communications is the new name for a company with a very long history: Quinn Brein was originally co-founded by Jeff Brein in 1979. In 2023, QB was sold to long-time employee, Ginger Vaughan, who is carrying the tradition of providing innovative PR and marketing services while maximizing a client’s resources to spend more time on projects without incurring the cost of larger firms.
