KCD Public Relations Inc. and Diseno Communications, two San Diego based communication firms, announced a strategic partnership aimed at maximizing the presence and brand of independent financial services and professional service companies.

The two companies recently moved into a new office in Little Italy and will provide complementary public relations, branding, marketing and design services to their respective clients, the firms said.

KCD described itself as a public relations and marketing firm, while Diseno Communications said it is a corporate branding firm that develops integrated marketing communications for companies.

The two firms have already worked together on previous projects, which translates to “a seamless experience for our clients,” said Chadric Humphreys, creative director for Diseno.
