2020…one crazy year.


Back in mid-March, just as the pandemic began its methodical march, the Turchette Team packed up our work, said goodbye and figured that we would all be together again soon.

Well, “soon” turned into each of us, encased in our own little snow globes, watching the world outside fall apart.

However, thanks to a lot of fast thinking and long hours, we made an early, seamless pivot from office to home for more than 7 months. After the shock of working from home morphed into our “new normal” for 2020 – we rolled up our pajamas and sweatshirts…and went right back to work…this time from our kitchen tables, bedrooms, couches, and basements. It wasn’t always easy but we did our jobs, the creative work and the bills went out, and we are now poised for growth once again.

While trade shows went dark, we took advantage of social platforms, produced webinars, crafted videos and launched digital campaigns to keep our clients in the spotlight during the pandemic.

We landed 15 new clients, scooped up 14 awards for outstanding creative work, and welcomed 3 new members to our team.

2020 was a year we could never have expected, and one that we will not forget.  For over 70 years, Turchette has weathered recessions, multiple wars, impeachments, civil unrest and now, a global pandemic. We are eternally thankful for the clients that have stood by us through the years and for the talented and committed colleagues who continue to make up the tightly-woven fabric of our team.
