There’s way too much noise. Online. On air. In person. You have money to raise. Products to sell. Clients to attract. You have to connect. With your message. Your media. Your strategy. With Lux.

We’re a strategic communications firm that’s been helping clients create impact since 1994.

That impact comes in many forms. For a New Mexico-based start-up company dedicated to producing drugs in China, it was creating the company’s branding and messaging, scheduling speaking engagements at high-level industry conferences, placing articles in leading trade journals, and managing its world-wide launch. In less than two years, PaizaBio is the recognized expert on China’s pharmaceutical industry and raising $100 million for a new plant. (We’re almost there!) For Thrive Ice Cream, a novel, nutritional product, it’s creating and managing its web and social presence and helping them break into the healthcare, sports nutrition and retail sectors. For the South Carolina Hospital Association, it was a communications strategy that helped pass legislation by unanimous vote to save the state’s trauma system. For Indiana-based VisionTech Partners, it was a total rebranding, messaging, and PR that helped the private investment group become one of the Midwest’s top angel investing organizations.

We work as a trusted partner, providing insight and counsel to clients who value our experience, our broad knowledge and connections, our innovative thinking and the results we achieve.

Lux is also founder Melanie Lux (Yes, that’s me in the boots.) who serves as chief strategist, creative director, client liaison, and the business development contact. (You’ll want to make a note of that.) I’ve been fortunate to work with clients virtually around the world and in many diverse industries. I’m passionate about what I do for and with clients. I’ve built a team of talented creatives and together we develop and execute complete strategies, websites, videos and TV ads, PR and social media campaigns, and much more.

Oh, I’m also the one with way too many cowboy boots, an assortment of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and lots of frequent flier miles. Sure, we live and work in a virtual world. But isn’t it better to roll up our sleeves and get to work in person?

Celebrating 24 years in business!


One room over the garage. Several offices. Three states. Many, many great clients. Wonderful employees and creative colleagues. Big ideas and results. All crammed into 24 years. So are we celebrating more than two successful decades as Lux + Associates? You bet we are! Let’s get together for some cake. Or some champagne. Soon!

“We’re launching a contract drug manufacturing company in China. Lux worked closely with us to create our brand identity, website, videos, global tradeshow support, press releases, and social media. Lux has provided a solid marketing infrastructure and succeeded in establishing PaizaBio as a global thought leader on China’s complex drug market. It was a major task and Lux managed it handily.”

Everyone has a specialty, right? Ours is helping clients we’re passionate about change the world for the better through strategies that are on target and on message. That has taken us down some interesting paths – we helped a global packaging company revolutionize coffee packaging and are currently working with a pharma startup to bring a life-saving stroke drug to market. Here are the industries where we focus our efforts. If you don’t fall into one of these categories, no worries. New paths are good. Let’s talk.

Health Care

The healthcare industry is complex. Our experience is deep; we’ve worked with hospitals and physician practices, medical schools, hospital associations, health insurance companies, and consultants. Our knowledge and insight is a real asset to clients. More

When it was time to re-brand our investment firm, I remembered working with Lux on a project several years back and liking their work, so I asked for a proposal. Creating a new brand identity and website is personal, particularly for a small company. I was very pleased at how collaborative the process was and the willingness of the Lux team to incorporate our ideas. I am even more pleased with the finished work and our ongoing relationship with the Lux team.

Lux is a “get it done” firm.

What we do is driven by client needs. Truth is, one size does not fit all. Nor is there a silver bullet. We take time to get to know you, your business, and your goals and objectives. We’re good listeners and even better about ferreting out competitive information. We then put what we learn to work creating an integrated marketing communications approach that’s compelling, connects with the audience and maximizes impact.

Our services include:

  • Branding
  • Strategic Development
  • e-Marketing
  • Key Messaging
  • Internal Communications
  • Issues Communications
  • Print Collateral/Annual Reports
  • Public Relations
  • Social Media Management/Content Creation
  • Trade Show Support
  • Video Production
  • Website Development

Lux has had our account for eight years, with phenomenal results! Community perception of our hospital is very positive. Lux develops an annual plan for marketing and produces our television, billboard, point-of-sale, newsletters and ads, as well as managing our social media posts and advertising. The consistent, integrated approach gets results!
