Agency IM is a consultancy designed to help architecture and design leaders meet their ambitions with strategic branding, marketing, and communications programs. We create transformative, bespoke programs that open design firms to higher levels of practice, by addressing cultural structures, human capacity, and design content, as intrinsic to achieving business growth goals. Clients come to us to improve upon their existing approaches, expand their market horizons, or when at business crossroads.

Philosophy       Identity, not image.  We seek the why to every what—getting to the essence of the firms’ values and goals results in compelling and differentiating strategies, and unique messaging and positioning. Competitive edge.  It attracts staff, clients, collaborators, and projects. 

Passionate about architecture and its impact on cities and culture, we welcome client partners who are driven, and uphold an ethos of responsibility, to architecture itself, to social equity, to urbanism and the environment, or to culture.

Leadership       The Agency is led by Isabelle Moutaud, who has spent more than 25 years advising firms such as Diller Scofidio & Renfro, REX, Trahan, Civitas, and many more. Since discovering a passion for architecture in her early career while leading PR and crisis management for the Domino's Pizza Frank Lloyd Wright Museum and the company's Top 30 Architects in the World program, Isabelle has worked for national and international architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture firms. She  has contributed to new business acquisition and often participated in the conceptual design strategy of brand-making projects. She is a published writer of monographs and articles in trade journals, and has spoken on design, coaching and branding at AIA and SMPS lectures and conferences nationwide.
