how we make it all happen

we investigate

We start by asking the most fundamental question: Why? Then we ask it over and over to peel back the layers to see what’s truly going on. What’s motivating an audience…who their trusted sources are…and where they get their information from. Marry that with your business objectives and we have the insights for big creative ideas & truth-driven work.

we create

Our creative process is focused on impact. We conceptualize in an integrated fashion to deliver unique content through the channels that are a part of your target audience’s life. Our Colab team includes: an editor-in-chief who spent 10 years as the tech editor at USA Today, strategic planners that are improv artists and NYU professors, digital teams of seasoned strategists, pop culture curators, musicians, creative art directors, designers and passionate community managers, constantly exploring emerging trends and proven techniques to share stories. What do they create? Long & short form content, social strategy & posts, product & corporate messaging & websites.

we activate

We know how to engage influencers — paid and organic. Our designers understand how to communicate visually and our earned media specialists build and nurture relationships with the industry’s top journalists — it’s deeper than just pitching. What do we activate? Earned media, paid media, social amplification, native ads, visual storytelling, influencers & experiential events.
