LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:

Society can be more sustainable and corporations more responsible. People can be healthier and happier and the earth can be cleaner. Public discourse can be constructive. Hope can overshadow despair, and inspiration can trump apathy.

We simply need a collective antidote.

Antidote Collective are socially conscious communicators working at the intersection of media, arts and culture, business and progressive causes. We use communications, PR and writing with a holistic approach to help shape a more sustainable, healthy, socially just society. We promote the public interest above profit.

I say "we" but in essence the "collective" is run by one person who collaborates with freelancers and agencies on projects -- though that could change at some point.

PHILOSOPHY

Antidote is a ray of light in a lackluster universe of communications groups. We offer an alternative to conventional paradigms. A place where passion and spirit float freely. Where personal freedoms and expression are encouraged and fun is a virtue. Where quality controls quantity. Where relationships are paramount, integrity is expected, and politics are nonexistent.

We're a communications organization in form but an artists collective in spirit. We believe that just as art can express the highest ideals of the human spirit and inspire others to positive change, so can mass communications. And we believe in the power of a collective of minds to do that.

We also believe in what we'll call considered unconventionality. Transcend the typical with purpose. Strategic nonconformity, if you prefer. It's often a more difficult approach, but worthwhile. Creativity and relevance in communications is necessary to break through audience ADD (attention deficit disorder) caused by the ever-increasing information glut and mind-numbing commercialism of our culture. It's necessary to penetrate individual consciousness and snap people from their trance. Truly connect with them. Arouse their intellect and emotions. Engaging them, enlightening them, and inspiring them. People want to be inspired. People need to be inspired.

We differentiate and position organizations with this in mind. We write with this in mind. We're strategic and creative. Rational and imaginative.
