We create deep, emotional and engaging content to help our clients accelerate social impact and engagement.

As storytellers and social activists, we seek to empower human resilience through the stories we tell. We believe the power of social impact storytelling can inspire audiences to give, get involved and take action.

Our values

Connectedness illustration


Why are we KIN Media? Kin refers to family or relations in a familiar and comfortable way. It’s this closeness and familiarity that drives our approach in impact storytelling. Our core belief in unity and human connection is the central thread through all of our work – how it affects communities and beneficiaries and the wider goal of driving social change.
Honor illustration


We honor the people in our stories we tell as we would our own family. We respect the distinctiveness of different cultures as we amplify and empower — not exploit — their experience and their stories.
Commitment Illustration


We are committed to our clients’ mission and growth. As story keepers, we value journeying with our clients over the years as their company or programs evolve and expand. Our long term clients trust that we will always put their core mission at the center of our projects and continue creating fresh new concepts for social impact storytelling needs.
