Designed to support your objectives

To help articulate your content objectives, check out our three most popular narrative themes:

#1 People:
Showcase your leadership and talent by giving a personal insight into research, strategy, or employee/student life.

#2 Places:
Promote your organization’s achievements and innovations, while raising awareness of your research, faculty, or state-of-the-art facilities, with a look-behind-the-scenes institutional profile.

#3 Ideas:
Demonstrate thought leadership and align your brand with progress by educating scientific audiences about important advances/issues, or distilling the findings of a published paper/white paper into a short, accessible research digest article.

How it works

  1. Creation: In this collaborative process, our custom media team understands your objectives, audiences, and interview sources, and crafts a compelling article, which you review at several stages.
