We elevate brands, businesses and organizations.


Totem Partners was founded to help organizations leverage their core strengths to create defining totems.
These totems take many forms: brands, products, programs, and stories. They can capture a core identity, welcome friends, and signal the way forward into the future. With careful planning and insight, they all have one thing in common: the power to foster relationships for a lifetime.


We, like our clients, are deeply committed to a deeper sense of purpose in our work: doing well by our employees, our communities, and our environment. We take an active role in promoting sustainable business practices, inclusive organizational cultures, and impact-driven partnerships. Our relationships and reputation depend on it.

Together with our clients, we know we can activate shared values into the change our communities deserve; because after all, our collective future depends on that.
