One&Other is a media brand fit for the 21st century.
One&Other is a local media company and branded content agency with a passion for storytelling through design, digital, film and publishing. We spend all day, every day cultivating big ideas and translating them into engaging content. Whether it’s for ourselves or for others, our philosophy stays the same: to use the power of creativity to move audiences into action.
Our brief to ourselves is to re-inject the relevance, intelligence, charm, beauty and purpose back into local media.
We also believe that local media have a responsibility beyond profit that needs to be protected, that is to serve, enlighten, empower and advance communities. For this to happen within One&Other, we are guided by three principles:
- That we must operate from within the communities that we serve
- That we must seek to employ local knowledge and talent wherever possible
- That all profits are reinvested into making us stronger and the creation of more social value
By setting up as a Community Interest Company (a form of Social Enterprise), we can control our own destiny and honour this commitment.
One&Other is a community of professional journalists, illustrators, designers, photographers, videographers, and hobbyists, coming together to change local news for the better and act as a catalyst for people-powered change.
