Communications & Engagement

At Fehr & Peers, we are communicators who speak transportation. We partner with clients to unpack complex transportation concepts and transform them into insightful, relatable visuals and enable inclusive conversations that connect us with communities.

While we are well known for our transportation planning and engineering expertise, we have enhanced that reputation by integrating compelling graphic design, visual communications, and community engagement strategies into those services. Humanizing the data, results, and strategies of transportation issues into concepts that effectively reach everyone takes projects from complicated to understandable and accessible. Transforming client and community knowledge and feedback into context-specific solutions is a large and important part of our partnering and planning process.

We begin with the “why.”

Engaging in conversations with our clients to understand needs, visions, and expectations gives us insight not only to meet preferences, but to develop enhanced options tailored to diverse needs. We also partner with local experts, community members, and community-based organizations to gain a deeper understanding of local values and to foster a collaborative process.

We approach our work with empathy.

We recognize that while not everyone is a transportation expert, residents and leaders are experts in their communities. We cultivate understanding through refined messaging – whether that involves distilling complex data into relatable infographics or interacting with community members at their local grocery store or bus stop.

We prioritize equity, accessibility, and inclusion.

Pairing engagement strategies with intuitive visuals allows us to attract and engage a representative cross section of the community. Employing the use of translation, inclusive graphics, ADA accessibility, and strategic event planning models our commitment to equity, accessibility, and inclusion.
