Inspiring Transformations that Matter
Before and More | creative agency is a business built on the idea that shame-based marketing has no place in health or wellness. The “Before and After” transformations that are supposed to inspires us to lead more healthy, active, and connected lives just leave us striving for an impossible ideal. We work with change-making health and wellness businesses and self-care professionals to create body positive marketing campaigns, and host educational events that help people find self-care resources that make a difference in their lives.
Kate Browne, Founder and CEO
Kate Browne is an outspoken advocate for self-care as community care, and she uses her online project Taking Up Space to educate women on how to redefine what it means to live a healthy lifestyle. In her own journey from chronic dieter to multi-sport athlete, Kate used expertise in rhetoric to think critically about the message we receive daily about health, wellness, and who is allowed to be seen.
After she completed her PhD, Kate began engaging with marketing strategy by “fixing” fitness inspiration memes to share a message without shame.She heard from many Taking Up Space readers who said that they never paid much attention to how harmful these fitspo messages are, and now think critically about advertisements for health and fitness products. Kate continued to posted edited advertisements, and she had an unexpected opportunity to enact change for national gym brand LifeTime Fitness.
As the founder and CEO of Before and More, Kate works with personal trainers, massage therapists, academic researchers, and artists who are taking a stand against shame-based marketing strategies. Her clients are transforming their businesses and their clients lives by focusing on building their businesses in a way that doesn’t rely on psychological manipulation, exclusion, or zero-sum competition.
