The Carney Group





Fundamental to what we do

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. 
Specialization is for insects.”

—Robert Heinlein

We create simple, authentic metaphors that differentiate brands. The piles of data, words and images we organize make ideas easy to understand and products easy to buy. We build mechanisms to build relationships.

Our clients are media organizations, manufacturers, agricultural conglomerates, community development groups, entertainment and technology companies. They range from the independent entrepreneur to Fortune 100 companies.

All of them, incredibly interesting to us and soon to the wider market we expose them to.
