Olu & Company


Olu & Company Testimonials

Olu & Company is a dream to work with. Not only were they able to place stories in top-tier publications (The New Yorker, Vogue, Observer, etc), but they’ve been instrumental partners in helping craft my career strategy. Their deep knowledge extends way beyond the world of art, and their passion and professionalism insures their clients feel not only cared for but confident in their initiatives. For an emerging artist like myself, they have proven to be invaluable.

Olu & Company provided invaluable insights through our social media and brand positioning workshops. Amani understands what audiences are looking for in social media interactions and marketing, and how to deliver. We left the workshop with clear goals and actionable tactics for growing our brand and reaching a broader audience.
— Joshua Mattie, Communications Director, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati
Olu & Company was just what we needed. We launched our US tour for In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth), and at every stop, we spoke with journalists from television, radio, newspaper, and digital media outlets. Olu & Company helped us make an impact in every city we visited.
— Hank Willis Thomas, Founding Member, The Cause Collective
Amani Olu and his team demonstrate a deep and genuine love for the arts and the creators of these arts, in his attention to detail and his thoughtful connections within and beyond the arts journalism community. Amani’s combination of heart and hustle delivered considerable attention and eyes to our ten-year anniversary New York fair in 2017, and his support for our Curated Section and VOLTA spirit has been warmly received and appreciated.
— Amanda Coulson, Artistic Director, VOLTA
I have worked with Amani Olu on a number of projects, and Amani and his team have been the perfect partners for our public relations campaigns. They exceeded our expectations in offering us personalized attention, creative ideas and eloquent written materials for each of our public art projects. Amani has great knowledge of the art world, and an extensive network of contacts. He is thoughtful, strategic, and a pleasure to work with. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount and quality of the media coverage he and his team were able to generate for our nonprofit art organization.
— Micaela Martegani, Executive Director, MORE ART
Amani Olu is a godsend. When I decided to run for mayor of Detroit, he immediately jumped on board and helped craft the campaign. Because his expertise extends beyond the art world, his knowledge was invaluable. Amani’s enthusiasm, foresight, and constant follow-thru made him an integral part of the team. Forever grateful for his role as communications director and his willingness to continue to work with me after the campaign.
— Ingrid LaFleur, Artist, Curator, Former Candidate for Mayor of Detroit
Groundswell worked with Olu & Company to generate publicity for our Annual Art Bash. We hired them to secure press coverage, increase ticket sales and highlight our social justice work, rather than our mural projects. Olu & Company focused on metrics, were attentive, and gave helpful advice on ways to increase our organizational optics. We set a goal for 2 million press impressions – they delivered 4.5 million. We genuinely look forward to working with Olu & Company in the future.
— Tiasia O'Brien, Development & Communications Director, Groundswell
It was immediately apparent that we could give Amani our trust and confidence to execute tasks in ways both smart and sexy. His understanding of the art industry, years of professional experience, and witty personality are refreshing. The strategies we developed together are genuine, thoughtful, and have helped us grow our business.
— Paulina Petkoski & Samantha B Schefman, PLAYGROUND DETROIT
