The Original Explainers
In 2007, we made the first explainer videos of the YouTube era and have earned over 50 million video views.
In 2012, we wrote the definitive book on the subject: The Art of Explanation. It’s been translated into 8 languages.
Today, we're creating videos, visuals and courses designed to help you explain with confidence.
