Pollen Studio

Pollen Studio is a creative agency for mission-driven organizations. We are explorers in creating a more just and vibrant future through social impact storytelling and the power of narrative change.


We transform complex ideas into colorful, accessible, and shareable content. Using custom art and the principles of good storytelling, we create visuals and narratives that compel audiences to pay attention. Our stories spark essential conversations and tip inspiration into action.

Investing in connection

A change in narratives — the shared stories we tell ourselves and each other — allows for change at other levels, transformations that can take root in ourselves, in our communities, or in our systems. Pollen Studio strengthens ecosystems of transformation in our region by helping our partners grow their own capacity for narrative change.

We work with mission-driven clients that are invested in making this world a more free, just, and loving place.

We’ve got an internal team of powerhouse creatives — writers, editors, designers, and social media experts that can help our partners’ stories shine.
