Creating an accessible, democratic media ecosystem.

Inequitable access to the tools that shape public awareness is a root cause of friction in society. We believe in powering the edges and engaging your community to do more. Open Media helps create accessible communication tools to foster a more inclusive, accessible, and diverse media ecosystem that empowers all voices.

CORE VALUES


 

WE FAVOR “PULL” OVER “PUSH”

Where traditional PR/Marketing is often invasive, OMF works with clients to make information widely available, easily accessed, and shareable by your communities of interest. Traditional PR/Marketing approaches often disregard whether messages are welcome or appropriate for every context, what we call “Push Marketing.” Push marketing invades public life, whereas “pull marketing” is designed to be “pulled” by those seeking the information.

CORE VALUES


 

WE FAVOR DISTRIBUTED & FLEXIBLE OVER HIERARCHICAL & CONTROLLED

In a networked world with infinite options, people seek-out communities of interest and information from trusted sources. Our communications support the public in spreading your message to reach wider audiences, designed to be personalized, replicated, and spread by the community.

CORE VALUES


 

WE FAVOR ACCESSIBLE COMMUNICATION AVENUES OVER EXCLUSIVE COMMERCIAL MEDIUMS

The traditional marketing and communications avenues are prohibitively expensive. Because we want to live in a world where the strength of one’s message is not determined by the amount of money you have to spend, we promote communications avenues that are economically accessible.
