A Note From the Founder
“Apathy and indifference; ignorance and misunderstanding. The gravest problems in our world stem from these two root causes; but more than any other medium of communication a thoughtful narrative has the power to transform them—to take our apathy and make us care, to unravel our ignorance and help us understand. More than an essay, tutorial, or polemic, a story can nurture the greatest driver for change and human advancement that we have: empathy.
Whether you are a company, an individual, or an organization, we all face this same basic challenge: the public doesn’t yet know our mission, or worse, they don’t care. It is not enough to broadcast the same old tired platitudes, lest we merely add to the noise—it is not enough to shout, use flowery language, or post beautiful images—indeed it is not enough to simply have great ideas and assume that people will want to listen.
To tell our stories we must endeavor to know our audience and strive to understand what they need and want—to understand how we might ease their suffering, how we might inspire them to greatness, how we might form more resilient and lasting social bonds. Effective communication is the hallmark of strong leadership—whether it is in business or in our communities—and to be effective it must be driven by a sense of purpose.”
— Ian Van Alan, Owner and Founder of Aristoi Media
Our mission is to connect you with your audience by developing your own authentic voice. It is our belief that people respond to stories which are told with sincerity, originality, and insight—and it is our conviction that how you choose to communicate can make or break public trust; it can build public support, or destroy it. As a team of thoughtful creatives and curious dreamers our work strives to inform, empower, and inspire.
