What We Do
Theorem Media builds coalitions and advisory boards of the very best and brightest from across dozens of disciplines. We bring together strategists, directors, producers, writers, journalists, brand architects, technologists, educators, hackers and trans-media artists around a purpose. Creative cohorts that share a passion for making complex issues not only accessible, but also entertaining. With the guidance of these teams, we then create and distribute digital first content using multiple formats and channels. All of this drives massive digital engagement as the baseline for 21st Century learning.
Our team shapes new perspectives through myriad lenses. We are relentless about building teams of collaborators that come from different backgrounds, push for new ways of thinking and value diversity of thought.
