About us

 

These are amazing times. So many people are finding incredible, courageous ways to make things better on our planet — but they don’t always know how to explain their work in ways that can inform and inspire others. That’s where we come in.

I learned how to tell effective stories during the two decades I spent in the nonprofit world, working mostly in food security and sustainable agriculture. A filmmaker, writer, and communications strategist, I have worked with NGOs, foundations, and companies across the U.S. and around the world.

Clients tell me that what I deliver is clarity. I help them discover and articulate their one, core story — and that makes them better at everything they do.

Because every client needs something a little different, we run a virtual agency. Depending on your needs, we put together custom teams of creative people to help you achieve your specific goals. From brand identity to video, fundraising to online strategy, we deliver world-class work.

Joanna Macy and the Great Turning

My film about the systems thinker and Buddhist teacher Joanna Macy has been screened at film festivals around the world and on the PBS series Natural Heroes. The film shares Joanna’s wisdom about how we can show up in this unique moment in human history and confront the challenges of our age — without becoming either overwhelmed by or numb to the scope of what we are called to do.

"Arguably the greatest interview of our time with one the wisest women of our time. Heartbreakingly inspiring, practical and transcendental, transformative words that Joanna Macy has conjoined so beautifully in her life and work." 

— Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest and editor of Drawdown

 

What people say

“Chris Landry is truly one of the best storytellers I know. He helped transform our global communications, which greatly impacted the way we present ourselves and our strategy for creating change that helps everyone — companies, farmers, and communities. I would recommend Chris and his team to anyone.”

”Chris immediately understood the culture and values of the foundation, which is deeply embedded in supporting and working closely with frontline communities in the United States fighting for social justice. His passion for and understanding of the work of the foundation and grantees is not only reflected in our logo and the content of our website, but also in his ongoing work with us.”

“Chris is a gem for anyone starting a business or needing a fresh image. As I was preparing to launch, I was a mess. I couldn't give a snappy elevator speech. I didn't have a website, and I had no idea how to brand my work. Chris asked a lot of questions, listened carefully, and in just a few days created powerful, succinct messaging that communicates not only a description of my services but the values and personality of my business. Chris also created the structure of my website in a format that is user-friendly — allowing me and my staff to easily make additions and edits. Importantly, Chris offered concrete, smart business advice, referrals to other helpful resources and warm, enthusiastic encouragement.”
