Despite a career that has taken him throughout the world, Mr. Flannagan always keeps his focus on Arizona. After earning a MBA from Washburn University and working in India and Kansas for 8 years, he has returned home to start Nuanced Media, a digital marketing and business consulting agency. Mr. Flannagan combines his education, which includes two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Arizona, with his extensive work experience as a senior business analyst for multiple companies to provide efficient, honest, and excellent service for clients. He is as well known for his teaching and leadership abilities as he is for his strong market analysis capabilities and understanding of complex technologies.
Like many of his own clients, Mr. Flannagan has championed the entrepreneurial spirit, providing a unique vision when conducting business consulting and strategic marketing campaigns. This has resonated well at Nuanced Media. Since starting the company five years ago, the firm has accumulated more than 100 clients internationally. This diverse client base, which includes companies such as University of Arizona, Cambridge Leadership Group, Lunt Solar Telescopes, and Integrative Pain Center of Arizona, benefit from Nuanced Media’s 25 years of combined experience in graphic design, digital marketing, and business management consulting. During the past three years Nuanced Media has grown exponentially — increasing staff by over 100% and business growth by 250% in 2014 alone, securing Nuanced Media a position as a Finalist in Tucson Metro Chamber’s Copper Cactus Awards for Innovation through Technology in 2013 and Business Growth in 2014. Nuanced Media was also ranked as the #1 Medical Web Design Agency from 10BestDesigns.com in 2015. Thriving in a challenging economy afforded Nuanced Media the opportunity to become a gold sponsor of the first annual Tucson Jazz Festival, donating over $25,000 in services to help the festival’s inaugural year be primed for success.
Spearheaded by its founder, Nuanced Media blends the knowledge from experts in a number of fields to meet client needs. Given the diversity of these needs, Nuanced Media takes a very individualized approach, conducting extensive research in their discovery process to help determine client goals, while positioning resources to achieve them. The company has evolved with advances in technology and has employees who are proficient in multiple software and Web-related technologies. To partner its strong graphic design work, the company has introduced robust strategic social media and search engine optimization marketing campaigns, which have heightened client exposure and increased customer bases. Their success and integrity in these endeavors have led Nuanced Media to become a trusted Google Partners in the Tucson community.
