About Orange Cone Agency


Orange Cone Agency began as Luminaria Media & Public Relations in 2001, as a San Antonio-based PR firm geared toward promoting the arts and toward assisting a variety of companies with writing and publicity needs.

Luminaria moved to Austin in 2006, relaunching as a full-service public relations firm specializing in authors, entrepreneurs, food and wine clients, and non-profit organizations, with a client roster which also includes publicly traded corporations, universities, and law firms.

The name change to Orange Cone Agency (in 2011) reflected an expanded focus on a variety of communications services, extending beyond media and public relations to more content management, social media, and digital strategies services, with front-end web development recently being added to our in-house offerings.

In addition to those services, we can also arrange for graphic design services, online video production, and Spanish-language media outreach through a network of trusted independent professionals we've worked with on past projects. We're a true 21st century communications firm, flexible and able to morph according to the needs of any given campaign.
