We are strategic storytellers.
Storytelling is a bedrock of human communication. Powerful stories change minds, behaviors, and lives. We know, story’s getting a lot of buzz these days. But not all story is built (or told) the same. We bring strategy to story without disrupting the inherent power of narrative. And we use storytelling across our work – from content creation to campaign development to the story being told at the live events we help to coordinate. Story is all around us and we tap into that everywhere power to help clients, collaborators, and partners articulate, connect, and achieve. No matter the platform, we can help you uncover the narrative and tell your story in a meaningful and impactful way.
We’re bringing editorial back.
We’re not Justin Timberlake, but we do think that editorial needs to be reintroduced into the engagement conversation. In this fast-paced digital world, it can be easy to go for the easy. There’s forethought in editorial. There’s a process. There’s revision and planning. Strategy! Editorial may not be sexy, but we still think it’s worth bringing back. On more practical terms: need help developing or managing editorial? We can develop an editorial infrastructure, recruit writers and creators, devise an editorial calendar and prepare content for publication. On schedule and on budget.
We’re content & media producers.
Blogs.articles.training modules.videos.books.scripts.marketing copy.curricula.magazines.reading guides.teacher guides.reports.ebooks.seminars. We’ve done them all and then some. And while we love to create, we don’t just create to create. We ask the important questions first: why? who? when? where? and how?
We develop kick-butt campaigns across media platforms.
We get a kick out of developing super cool and effective campaigns that spread across platforms for nonprofits, media companies, educational institutions, and brands that work to deepen their relationships with customers and communities. We can manage it all from budgeting to the evaluation.
We use social media in creative ways to amplify and connect.
Social media can be a tricky animal. But we still love it and respect the value it can bring to projects. And because we respect it so much, we don’t use it all willy-nilly. We develop strategy. We test. We experiment. We don’t treat it as a cure-all. We only use the platforms that we need to use – quality or quantity. And we have fun with it.
We plan unforgettable live experiences.
It may be a conference. Or a dope mixed media celebration for charity. Or a youth centered event. Either way, we can handle the logistics, word-spreading, content, programming, and follow-up.
We connect media & education.
We believe in the power of formal and informal education. We also believe in the power of using media properties to teach. We can develop standards-based curricula, community guides, educational modules, teachers’ resources and more for your project.
We consult with companies & organizations to help them connect & create.
Whether you need help generating ideas or insight into the feasibility of a project or event, tap into our know-how for conceptualization, development, production, execution, and marketing. We think you’ll find our honesty refreshing and our imaginations welcoming.
We believe that you can never stop learning. We do it every day. And we enjoy facilitating the learning process with others. Our workshops, presentations, brown bags, conference, and events, which include topics in storytelling, content strategy, digital media, and more, are designed to educate + engage.
