Tribe Inc. - Work

Tribe was founded in 2002 as a creative boutique working in traditional advertising for consumer brands. When some of our larger clients began asking us to take on internal communications projects, they seemed pleasantly surprised that we applied the same high levels of strategic thinking and creative excellence as we did for external audiences.

In fact, we see the internal brand and the external one as two sides of the same coin. The external messaging communicates the organization’s promise. The internal messaging guides employees in delivering on that promise.

The Turner Broadcasting System learning site was developed to appeal to their younger employees, showcasing options for different learning styles and media preferences, from video to podcast to live classes.

On-Site VIDEOS

One of the most powerful ways to communicate your culture is to have employees describe it in their own words. This video is one of seven developed for recruiting and social media, all shot in one day.

Since the pandemic, we’ve had to find ways to shoot video of employees working from home. What Zoom videos lose in production values, they gain in authenticity. Skillful editing and strong graphics also help.
